George Conway blasted former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley after she criticized him for his continued attacks towards Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., Fox News informed.
Conway, who is the husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway and a fierce Trump critic, called Stefanik “lying trash” after she had accused House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of trying to “silence” her during last Friday’s public impeachment hearing, where Schiff did not let her ask questions to former U.S. diplomat Marie Yovanovitch per House rules.
Conway also asked others to donate to the campaign of Stefanik’s opponent. He later showed that he himself donated the legal maximum of $2,800 to the Democrat, former legislator Tedra Cobb.
Haley blasted the attorney on Monday, saying that his attacks on Stefanik were “uncalled for and disgusting.”
“This is absolutely uncalled for and disgusting. What is wrong with people? George Conway is the last person that can call someone ‘trash’,” Haley tweeted.
Conway immediately fired back.
“Oh, @NikkiHaley, just the other day you said that the world’s biggest pathological liar, @realDonaldTrump, was a “truthful” man. *That’s* the very essence of disgusting, trashy, and pathetic—utterly shameless and transparent dishonesty,” Conway wrote.
That was in reference to Haley’s defense of President Trump, where she said that he had always been “truthful” to her when asked if her former boss was a “truthful” person.
He later suggested Haley would say “anything to get the vice-presidential nomination.”
Conway received backlash over the weekend after he retweeted an apparently edited image of Stefanik raising the middle finger during a round of applause Yovanovitch received at the end of the hearing, while doubling down on his “trashy” attacks.
He later deleted the tweets, but did not offer an apology.
