Eric Trump has been getting dragged since he mounted a Twitter attack on Monday against George Conway, an attorney and presidential critic married to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.
Conway tweeted out criminal statutes relating to obstruction of justice Monday morning after President Donald Trump tried to use social media to intimidate witnesses cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Conway’s tweet clearly got under Eric Trump’s skin.
“Of all the ugliness in politics,” tweeted Eric, “the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all.
@KellyannePolls is great [sic] person and frankly his actions are horrible.”

The president’s middle son did not get the reaction he anticipated.
Some family self-reflection might be in order.
He's a lawyer. He has free speech rights too – and I can envision a situation where he probably does NOT want to feel aligned with what is coming out of this White House. He has his own career to look after as well, if his wife continues spouting presidential "alternative facts."

Supposedly 'Great' people can do deplorable things if they are desperate enough for power, money, adulation or fame. Just look at your father. I am glad George is there to keep Kellyanne at least a bit grounded in reality. Too bad no one is doing that for you.

Or perhaps he truly recognizes that this administration is a shitshow that embarrasses itself daily and wants her to see it too. Because of this, he does not wish to go down the rabbit hole that his lying wife goes down because she is too much of a pathetic sycophant to see it.

you talking about Daddy Trump and the porn star he paid to bang while your little brother was born? oh. you were taking aim at a lawyer and the husband of one of your sycophants, because he pointed out criminality? Gotcha….

You mean something worse than having affairs during each of your three marriages? Sleeping with a porn Star right after your third wife had a baby? Bragging about sexual harassment and assault?

Oh yeah, she’s great. Like that one time she made up the Bowling Green massacre? What a great person. Maybe her husband got tired of her alternative facts?

Disagreement is not disrespect. You know what is? Serial adultry in three marriages. Now there is some serious disrespect of your spouse(s). What’s even worse…the son of his be scorned wife defending his father despite it.

Calling out crimes is a good and honorable thing. Two words not in your lexicon. Witness tampering is serious and I am glad he called him out on it.

Quite frankly your father is horrible.

You thinking that @KellyannePolls would stay with someone who disrespects her so shows more disrespect than any comments that have been uttered. You must think very poorly of her which, knowing your lineage, isn't difficult to believe.

Conway was not disrespecting his wife by shining light on the president’s perpetual criminal behavior.
Conway did not reply directly to E.T., but he did retweet some amazing reactions.

How does noting that your father engaged in witness tampering today disrespect Kellyanne Conway? https://t.co/kvwvVB4hcp

Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect the Trumps show toward the rule of law, the presidency and its place of work, and everything this nation has fought SO hard to achieve might top them all. Donald Trump is terrible person and frankly his actions are horrible. https://t.co/fEtH3MLcyN

He trolls Trump well.
Just noting that this was retweeted by George Conway. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at breakfast today. https://t.co/kcXoi3Wlif
