Dinner at the Conway house is about to get even more awkward.

Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump’s top White House aides known for her incessant lying, appears to have taken Trump’s side over her own husband’s in a growing public feud between the two men.

“He left it alone for months out of respect for me,” she told Politico on Wednesday, referring to Trump. “But you think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder? You think he should just take that sitting down?”

Her husband, George, has been publicly accusing Trump of having narcissistic personality disorder. Those with this condition have “an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others,” according to the Mayo Clinic.

Trump has, predictably, hit back to the extreme, calling George Conway a “total loser” and a “husband from hell.

Trump also made the obviously false claim that he doesn’t know George Conway, and tried to get under his skin by calling him “Mr. Kellyanne Conway,” as if calling a man by his wife’s name is the ultimate insult.

“He’s a whack job,” Trump said of George from the lawn of the White House on Wednesday.

Still, Kellyanne took Trump’s side over her husband’s — and even tried to argue that Trump’s mean tweets are actually respectful.

“The president is obviously defending me,” she told Politico. “He could privately say to me, ‘Honey you’re a distraction. We love you. You’ll always be a part of the family but go be with your kids. They need you. Go make a million dollars an hour. Go do that honey.’ It’s the opposite.”

She clearly has no limits when it comes to defending Trump.

Donald Trump has invoked his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in a civil case, and if he ever stands trial on criminal charges, neither a judge or a jury may take that as evidence of guilt. But in the court of common sense, we are entitled to reach the obvious conclusion: Trump has committed crimes and wants to keep them secret.

The Fifth Amendment privilege, after all, is not to refuse to exonerate oneself. It's to refuse to incriminate oneself. Answering questions truthfully, as a rule, is incriminating only to someone who has done something wrong.
