"He left it alone for months out of respect for me", she explained, referring to Trump. But she added: "You think he shouldn't respond when somebody, a non-medical professional, accuses him of having a mental disorder?"
"You think he should take that sitting down?"
George Conway responded less than 20 minutes after Trump's morning tweet.
In the fiery tweet, Trump also claimed that "Mr. Kellyanne Conway" was "VERY jealous of his wife's success" and "angry" that he had not been given a White House job he "so desperately wanted".
And Conway says he turned down the job with the Justice Department, knowing Trump would be "at war" with them his entire time in office.
I'm seeing a massive shift among the chatterati this afternoon towards the theory that this is all kabuki by the Conways, mainly I think because the alternative is just too awkward and painful to contemplate. Indeed, George Conway has been publicly suggesting, unambiguously, that the president is mentally unstable and unfit for office. "He's a wack job, but I don't know him", Trump said.
Mike Trout, baseball's $430 million man, is actually underpaid
Trout is nearing a deal to remain with Los Angeles on a 10-year contract extension worth a record amount of $363.5 million. He's been the consensus best player in baseball since his first full season in 2012.
In his "Skullduggery" interview, Conway admitted he wept with joy and pride on election night while reflecting on how Kellyanne Conway helped engineer Trump's upset victory over Hillary Clinton.
What followed were tweets from Parscale painting Conway as disgruntled and "jealous"; "POTUS doesn't even know him!" he said. "Good for you!" he tweeted, adding: "#NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder". Lately he's been pushing the argument Trump legitimately suffers from narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder which prevent him from achieving the empathy and compromise one needs to be a successful leader.
Because we know Trump has known Conway for over a decade as he sung the lawyer's praises in a 2006 letter.
Amazingly, Trump's latest tweet yesterday feels like an escalation from where thing have been between he and George Conway.
Conway said 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's so maddening to watch. That's basically it. Frankly, it's so I don't end up screaming at her about it", he told the Post.
