Trump Has Waged Sexist War On Kellyanne Conway's Husband. That Escalated Quickly

Mr Trump issued a series of tweets over the weekend in which he attacked the late senator John McCain, Google and the Russian Federation investigation, prompting Mr Conway to suggest the president had a narcissistic personality disorder. He also repeated his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale's claim that Conway is bitter because he was allegedly passed over for a job at the Department of Justice, which some sources have disputed, insisting that Conway turned down the job offer.

"He didn't like the mustache", Conway explained. Sessions was "so weak", Trump suggested, because he had recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation. It helps for him to talk about Trump on Twitter, he said, so that he won't "end up screaming at [Kellyanne Conway] about it" when they're at home together.

"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. Most recently, he made claims about Trump's mental health, tweeting last Sunday that "his condition is getting worse".

"You seem determined to prove my point. Good for you!" Conway wrote. "He added the hashtag, "#NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder". He doubled down Wednesday morning.

Conway said Tuesday's interview 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.

It was the second time in two days that Trump had called Conway a "loser" on Twitter.

In February, Ms Conway told CNN in response to questions about the ongoing feud that her husband was "crying with joy in his MAGA hat" on election night, but that he had since "changed his opinion on, I guess, matters of the presidency, but I haven't".

Kellyanne Conway did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday, but she said on Monday that she did not share her husband's concerns about Trump's mental health.
