George Conway has been a thorn in POTUS Donald Trump’s side since the former real estate mogul and reality TV host defeated the most corrupt, investigated presidential candidate in the history of our republic, Hillary Clinton.
That’s been a big problem for his wife, Kellyanne Conway — who, of course, is the president’s chief counselor.
That hasn’t stopped George from lobbing one insult after another at the president, leading many to speculate what life must be like behind closed doors at the Conway residence in D.C.
For her part, Kellyanne hasn’t taken much of the bait, at least in public. But others are stepping forward to do battle on her behalf. Enter POTUS Trump’s 2020 campaign chief, Brad Parscale, who blasted George Conway’s obviously huge ego on Twitter this week.
“We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted,” Parscale wrote on Monday. “He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success.”
“POTUS doesn’t even know him!” Parscale added as a parting shot.

The smackdown came earlier Monday after George accused President Trump of suffering from personality disorders.
The litigator tweeted images of the cover of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, along with two pages detailing Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder.
He then warned “*all* Americans,” including Vice President Mike Pence and Cabinet members, to think “seriously” about “Trump’s mental condition and psychological state.”
Earlier, Kellyanne told reporters she’s not concerned about the president’s mental fitness.
“No I don’t share those concerns,” Conway said, adding “I have four kids, and I was getting them out of the house this morning before I got here so I didn’t talk to the president about substance, so I may not be up to speed on all” his tweets.
