Eric Trump tweeted Monday to call out White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway – a fierce critic of President Trump, who suggested that a tweet from the President was tantamount to witnesses tampering, Fox News informed.
“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,” the tweet stated.
The rare public rebuke came after George Conway commented on a tweet from the President praising the longtime Republican operative Roger Stone. Stone said in an interview he would never testify against the President.
The President commended Stone’s remarks in a tweet, saying that his ally will “not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about President Trump. Nice to know that some people still have guts!”
Conway’s husband responded to this tweet and referenced the statutes of tampering with a witness and obstruction of justice.
George responded to Eric’s tweet by retweeting a user who wrote, “Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect the Trumps show toward the rule of law, the presidency and its place of work, and everything this nation has fought SO hard to achieve might top them all. Donald Trump is(sic) terrible person and frankly his actions are horrible.”
Conway’s husband also mentioned that the Republican party has turned into a “personality cult,” and that he would rather move to Australia than to vote for Trump. Kellyanne Conway was asked about her husband’s position and harsh criticism of Trump, but she stated that does not affect her or her job.
Her husband has also downplayed their differences of opinions.
“If I had a nickel for everybody in Washington who disagrees with their spouse on something that happens in this town, I wouldn’t be on this podcast. I’d be probably on a beach somewhere,” he said.
