“A total loser!” is what President Trump is calling his most loyal aide's husband on Twitter.
George Conway, a conservative lawyer and Kellyanne Conway's husband, is known as one of Trump's most vocal critics, but his attacks got fiercer than ever Monday, when he tweeted images from the American Psychiatric Association's "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" and highlighted pages including symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder.
Kellyanne was asked about her husband’s views Monday outside the White House.
"No, I do not share those concerns,” she said. “I have four kids and I was getting them out of the house this morning before I got here, so I can talk to the president about substance, so I may not be up to speed on all of them."
George questioned Trump's mental health after the president's weekend Twitter storm, which included attacks on “Saturday Night Live" and the late John McCain.
McCain’s name was brought up Tuesday when Trump was welcoming Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro.
"I’m not a fan of McCain, never have been,” Trump told reporters.
The Washington Post's Ben Terris has reported on the Conways' complicated marriage.
"It is not something Kellyanne loves,” he told Inside Edition. "She is certainly upset with her husband's tweets like this but he has been doing it for a long time now and they seem to be making it work to a degree."
Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale has a different explanation, which was retweeted by the president: "We all know that @realdonaldtrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted...now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success."
The Conways' marriage is a microcosm of the splits dividing the nation.
"It is impossible to know the inner workings of a marriage completely, but my understanding is his anger is with the president more than it is with Kellyanne. He told me that the president doesn't deserve the work his wife does for him," Terris added.
