Kellyanne Conway teaches her husband a lesson in manners

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, has thoroughly disassociated himself from his wife’s boss, President Donald Trump, even going so far as to say that the president is in “cognitive decline,” despite a warning from his wife.

The president upped the ante on Wednesday in his feud with Conway, calling him a “husband from hell” in a tweet as well as telling reporters that the husband of one of his closest advisers is “a whack job.”

“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 tweeted. “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Shortly after, George Conway fired back, pushing the narrative that the president is a “compulsive liar” and that is the reason his lawyers don’t believe he should talk with Mueller.

He also called Trump “dumb” in one assessment, after someone suggested that Trump could be in “cognitive decline,” that it’s “possible” the 72-year-old president is losing his mental faculties.

“Also possible,” Conway said in response. “There’s a clip of Trump online talking to Tom Brokaw thirty years ago and Trump is speaking in complete, coherent sentences. It’s quite a remarkable contrast to today, when all you get are these often incompréhensible word salads,” he said.

Kellyanne Conway gave an interview while the tiff between the two was still going on and said that her husband’s actions toward Trump were “unlike him” and that this behavior is new, as is the sentiment that he no longer supports “the agenda of the president and my work there.”

“I appreciate the president defending what he thinks is unfairness. I’ll leave that up to him. I was raised, though, in a household of strong Italian Catholic women who taught me that you air grievances like that in private, so it is very surprising to see it be so public,” Conway told Maria Bartiromo on her Fox Business show. “I’ve always encouraged him, I think would he be a fantastic judge or law professor.”
