'Whack job': Trump escalates feud with Conway's husband

President Donald Trump escalated his public feud with the husband of top aide Kellyanne Conway Wednesday calling George Conway

The counselor came to the president's aid in a Wednesday Politico article, saying that her husband should not "play psychiatrist" after he had suggested in tweets that Trump suffered from "narcissistic personality disorder" and "malignant narcissism" during their dayslong feud, as IJR Blue reported. "You think he should just take that sitting down?"

I know this story is all the rage again - due to escalations on both sides, and the media's voracious appetite for covering the soap opera-esque drama - but I must admit I feel nearly totally ambivalent about it.

She then turned her criticism to the news outlet. Instead he isn't. Instead, her boss is just calling her husband a "whack job" and a "husband from hell".

Yawn", wrote Conway in a sarcastic response to a post by a Washington Post fact-checker stating: "A couple fact checks though: Trump did know George Conway.

Moments later, George Conway responded.

"A total loser!" Trump added. "I have reluctantly concluded, however, that, for me and my family, this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government".

- Kellyanne Conway, working with Trump, kept George Conway from getting a job in the White House - presumably in the Justice Department - that "he so desperately wanted." .

In a tweet, Trump wrote that George Conway is upset that he did not get a job in the Trump administration.

Conway declined to comment on the fight's impact on his career and refused to say anything at all about his marriage.

Conway is by no means the first Trump critic to notice that the president seems to fit the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder, which include grandiosity, attention seeking, self-centeredness, "exaggerated self-appraisal", condescension, feelings of entitlement, lack of empathy, and relationships that are "largely superficial and exist to serve self-esteem regulation".

"Yesterday George spent the day tweeting about the president", she told Politico. "The mendacity, the incompetence, it's just maddening to watch". The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

If they want to remain in the good graces of both - the smart thing to do considering that the post-Trump direction of the party is uncertain - they have no choice but to pander to both. "That's basically it. Frankly, it's so I don't end up screaming at her about it".

"It's a way that I can get honesty out because there's tremendous dishonesty with respect to the (media)", he said.
