WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Wednesday escalated his feud with the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, calling him “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
Trump’s broadside on Twitter comes as George Conway, a conservative lawyer and frequent critic of the president, has publicly questioned the president’s mental health in recent days.
“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 wrote. “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
George Conway said in an interview Tuesday that he has had a number of notable interactions with Trump over the past decade, often concerning legal representation and sensitive legal matters since Trump became president.
Trump’s tweet referred to a Justice Department job for which George Conway was under consideration in 2017.
Conway said Tuesday that he opted against working at the Justice Department after Trump offered him a position heading the civil division because he watched Trump attack the department’s leaders and then fire James Comey, the FBI director, in early 2017.
