Trump Assails Husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway

HeadlineMar 21, 2019

Trump also lashed out at George Conway, the husband of counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway. George Conway is a longtime critic of Trump who’s accused the president of having a mental illness.

President Donald Trump: “Well, I don’t know him. Yeah, I don’t know him. He’s a whackjob. There’s no question about it. But I really don’t know him. He—I think he’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife. Kellyanne is a wonderful woman, and I call him Mr. Kellyanne. The fact is that he is doing a tremendous disservice to a wife and family. She’s a wonderful woman.”

On Wednesday, Kellyanne Conway defended President Trump against her husband’s criticisms, telling Politico, “You think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional, accuses him of having a mental disorder?” President Trump’s comments came ahead of a trip to Ohio, where he held a re-election fundraiser at the Brookside Country Club in Canton. Trump also toured the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center, which produces M1A1 Abrams tanks for the Pentagon. During a speech at the factory, Trump attacked the late Senator John McCain over his decisive vote against a Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement.
