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.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced a "full pardon" for his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a key figure from the start of Russia investigation and the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential transition. The reason for his lying was never fully explained. He also admitted to working as an unregistered foreign agent for Turkey while serving on the Trump campaign, work that included publishing a ghost-written op-ed in The Hill that argued for extraditing an American resident who is seen as an enemy of the Turkish government. After admitting to his crimes, Flynn attempted to recant and withdraw his guilty plea, an issue which had yet to be resolved by the courts.
