The Conways
April 24, 2019

George Conway was, by all accounts, happy when his wife, Kellyanne Conway, helped campaign-manage President Trump into office. But that was so 2016. Since then, Conway has become one of Trump's loudest conservative critics, to the consternation of his wife, who is one of Trump's top White House aides and most ardent defenders in the media.

When Trump's 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post on Wednesday night, arguing that Vladimir Putin is trying to make Russia great again by attacking U.S. democracy and Congress needs to hold Trump accountable for aiding him, using Special Counsel Robert Mueller's newly released report as a road map, George Conway repurposed Clinton's 2016 slogan: "If she's with the Constitution, I'm with her.

George Conway has been sniping at President Trump for months, but subtweeting the president with clinical definitions of personality disorders was apparently a bridge too far for Team Trump. On Monday night, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted that Trump had turned "Mr. Kellyanne Conway" down for an unspecified "job he desperately wanted," adding kind of incongruously that Conway "either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny" of working at the Justice Department. Conway, a prominent conservative lawyer, "hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success," Parscale suggested.

This prompted a tweet from the president of the United States himself, who deemed his senior counselor's husband "a total loser." Conway didn't seem hurt, tweeting back the clinical definition of narcissistic personality disorder.

Conway also congratulated Trump on spreading the word about mental illness, in a manner of speaking, and linked to a Rolling Stone article he said will help people "understand you, and why you're unfit and incompetent for the esteemed office you temporarily hold."
