Kellyanne Conway Defends Trump From Husband George’s Tweets

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.

The arrest of Charles McGonigal, chief of the FBI counterintelligence division in New York from October 2016 until his retirement in 2018, reopens festering questions about the troubled election that put Donald Trump in the White House. Among the crimes charged against McGonigal in two lengthy federal indictments is a secret financial relationship with Oleg Deripaska — a Russian oligarch close to dictator Vladimir Putin and associated with Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, himself convicted of crimes and pardoned.

During his FBI career, McGonigal oversaw investigations of Deripaska and other oligarchs suspected of various crimes, including espionage. Now the exposure of his illegal connection with Deripaska may provide fresh insights into Trump's tainted victory.
