Donald Trump Just Lashed Out at George Conway Again, and Conway Is Making Him Seriously Regret It

George Conway III, Republican lawyer and former player in the Ken Starr investigation of President Bill Clinton has been posting criticism and legal takes on President Donald Trump on Twitter for some time. On Monday he tweeted the descriptions for Anti-social personality disorder (ASPD) and narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) citing the President as potentially fitting the diagnosis guides from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

President Trump had for months largely ignored Conway's critical tweets but in the early hours of Wednesday morning he responded with an attack on Conway. The President posted:


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

Conway quickly responded to the post. He tweeted:

He also addressed Trump's attempt to insult him by referring to him in a manner women have been referenced for centuries: with their husband's name. After someone asked why referring to George Conway as Mr. Kellyanne Conway was an insult, he stated it was not, unless one was "extremely juvenile and boorish."

Trump's response does play into several criteria in the description of NPD that Conway posted two days before. And Conway is not the first person to accuse Trump or his behavior of exhibiting all the signs of NPD.

After the President's early morning tweet, multiple people also reposted Conway's excerpt from the DSM-5.

People applauded Conway for his continued Twitter presence.

Others directed their responses at or to the President.

People asked if he did not have something better to do with his time.

Others focused on specific parts of the Presidents post.

Some focused on the "husband from hell" part of the President's tweet.

People also pointed out a few less than truthful claims the President made about Conway, like not offering him a job and barely knowing him.

More than a few took a stab at rewriting the President's original tweet to suit him instead of Conway.

But Bravo TV host and producer Andy Cohen offered a bit of sage advice to the President however which most people are certain Trump will actually take: keep tweeting about Conway.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
