  • Eric Trump, President Donald Trump’s son, railed
    against attorney George Conway, husband of White House
    counselor Kellyanne Conway, on Twitter.
  • Conway has routinely tweeted messages that broadly
    conflict with the Trump administration’s political
    agenda.
  • Trump described Conway’s actions as “horrible” and
    disrespectful.

Eric Trump, an executive of the Trump Organization and President
Donald Trump’s son, railed against attorney George Conway,
husband of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, in a tweet and
called his
frequent musings
against Trump “horrible.”

“Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George
Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and
everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them
all,” Trump tweeted Monday. “[Kellyanne] is great person and
frankly his actions are horrible.”

George Conway has been
described
by some as “America’s favorite tweeting lawyer,”
and he has routinely tweeted and retweeted messages that broadly
conflict with the Trump administration’s agenda.

“That the President doesn’t necessarily know what he’s talking
about or isn’t necessarily telling the truth obviously *has* to
be the government’s position, because, well, facts are facts,”
Conway said on Twitter on Friday, referring
to a court filing from the Justice Department on the veracity of
Trump’s tweets.

Conway, who previously identified as a Republican, said he was
unsure about the direction the GOP is heading towards during the
Trump administration.

“I don’t feel comfortable being a Republican anymore,” Conway
said in a
podcast
in November. “I think the Republican Party has become
something of a personality cult.”

“I’m watching this thing, and it’s like the administration is
like a s—show in a dumpster fire,” Conway added. “And I’m like,
‘I don’t want to do that. I don’t know.'”

As a front-runner candidate to lead the Justice
Department’s civil division during Trump’s presidency, Conway
reportedly declined the offer in 2017 and has
since been
billed as an agitator of the Trump White House — where his wife
can be seen fiercely defending the president amid an avalanche of
unflattering news.

Eric is not the only Trump to have publicly slammed Conway. The
president appears to be aware of some of Conway’s criticism, the
majority of which is publicly available on Twitter, where his
nearly 180,000 followers can view legal analyses and pictures of
corgis.

“You mean, Mr. Kellyanne Conway?” Trump said to reporters in
November, after Conway criticized Trump’s appointment of acting
attorney general Matthew Whitaker. “He’s trying to get publicity
for himself.”

“Why don’t you do this: why don’t you ask Kellyanne that
question, alright?” he continued. “She might know him better than
me. I really don’t know the guy.”
