George Conway, a conservative attorney and the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, once again tore into President Donald Trump in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
This time, it was in reference to the firing of Omarosa Manigault-Newman from the White House in December.
Trump tweeted on Monday that Newman was "not smart" and that he heard "really bad things."
Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never w… https://t.co/Z1ThUIHjr5— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1534166828.0
The president added that he only kept Newman around the West Wing because she "only said GREAT things about me."
...really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he tol… https://t.co/BGxRsMoDbr— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1534168227.0
Conway, a frequent Trump critic, called out Trump for his flagrant dishonesty and mob-like perception of loyalty. He also blasted Trump for having "kowtowed to a dangerous competitor," which in this case, refers to the president's soft spot for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"Likewise, what if a CEO routinely made false and misleading statements about himself, the company, and results, and publicly attacked business partners, company “divisions” (w/ scare quotes!), employees, and analysts, and kowtowed to a dangerous competitor?"
Interesting analogy. Likewise, what if a CEO routinely made false and misleading statements about himself, the com… https://t.co/uWEHAUX9HK— George Conway (@George Conway)1534251775.0
Conway was responding to Philip Bump of the Washington Post, who on Tuesday asked: "How would the board of a company react if the CEO told them that he hadn't fired an unqualified employee who was disliked by coworkers because the employee constantly praised him?"

Monday was a busy day for the Conway-Trump Twitter saga. A mere two hours later, the feud ensued again.
Trump went after Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich in a tweet, calling him "very unpopular" and blaming him for Congressional candidate Troy Balderson's underperformance in last week's special election. Balderson won, but by less than 2,000 votes in a district Trump carried overwhelmingly in 2016.
The very unpopular Governor of Ohio (and failed presidential candidate) @JohnKasich hurt Troy Balderson’s recent wi… https://t.co/TKh1keBxMj— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1534173151.0
Conway fired back with Trump's disapproval numbers, courtesy of a Cincinnati Enquirer/Suffolk poll of Ohio voters that showed Trump's unfavorable rating at 58.6 percent, while Kasich's is at 34.8 percent.

Social media had some questions for Conway, most notably how he and his wife are able to share a roof while having opposing opinions about the president.
"How do you and your wife live in the same house? How do you come to terms with the lies she tells for Trump? As far as ‘false and misleading statements’, she is the queen! Second only to Trump."

Mrs. Conway is one of Trump's most ardent defenders, which usually involves repeating lies uttered by the president.

And then there's Trump himself, whose tweets often come in ALL CAPS.

But at least Mr. Conway is taking a stand.
