President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, took to Twitter on Monday and ripped George Conway, husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, for his tweets criticizing the Trump administration.
“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,” Eric tweeted on Monday.
“Kellyanne Conway is a great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”

George Conway, a Washington, D.C. lawyer, has been a frequent critic of Trump.
On Monday, Trump praised the “guts” of Roger Stone for refusing to testify against him. George Conway immediately suggested in a tweet that Trump was tampering with witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Conway, a lawyer, has organized a group with the goal of urging fellow lawyers to speak out against the Trump administration’s actions.
Meanwhile, his wife Kellyanne Conway is one of the most vocal and public supporters of the Trump administration. She regularly speaks in support of the president’s actions and makes the rounds on cable news networks defending him.
Trump has pushed back against George’s criticism, telling reporters that he is only speaking out to “get publicity for himself.”
