President Donald Trump escalated his public feud with the spouse of a top adviser Wednesda
y, attacking counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway’s husband George as “jealous” and a “husband from hell.”
“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that
I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted,” Trump tweeted, referring to a post at the Justi
ce Department. Conway, a conservative lawyer, withdrew from consideration for the role early in Trump’s presidency.
Trump continued, “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
Wednesday’s tweet marks the first time Trump has publicly weighed in on the Conways’ marriage. While George Conway has
long been critical of Trump, attacks between the two ratcheted up this week when Conway questioned Trump’s men
tal health, tweeting screengrabs of the medical definitions of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial pers
onality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
“*All* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, inclu
ding and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet,” he wrote Monday.
