This is one story that can’t possibly have a happy ending for someone.
President Donald Trump weighed in on the ongoing saga involving George Conway, taking to Twitter to call the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway “a total loser.”
Which is tame compared to what Mr. Conway is insinuating about the president.
Responding to a tweet from his reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, which suggested George is “jealous” of his wife’s success.
We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted. He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!

Trump joined in and tweeted: “A total loser!”

As seen in the tweet from Parscale, he said George Conway “desperately” wanted a job in the White House and now attacks the president out of jealousy to “hurt” his wife.
“We all know that
@realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted,” he tweeted. “He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!”
George Conway wasted no time responding to Trump, continuing a theme he has been running with lately, which is to question the president’s mental health.
“Tell us, @realDonaldTrump—which of these diagnostic criteria do you not satisfy?” he tweeted, along with a screenshot about narcissistic personality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

He added a second tweet congratulating the president for ensuring “that millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder and malignant narcissism!”
In a series of recent tweets, “Mr. Kellyanne Conway” went about questioning Trump’s mental health, to include a response to a tweet Sunday from Trump-hating Bill Kristol, who cited a series of random tweets from the president earlier that day to question his “mental condition and psychological state.”
In another tweet, George Conway insisted, “His condition is getting worse.”
He tweeted the same screenshot from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, along with one on antisocial personality disorders.
Naturally, White House reporters were quick to confront Kellyanne Conway Monday morning on her husband’s attacks on her boss, prompting her to say, “I don’t share those concerns.”

She added a remark that could be seen as a shot across the bow that George could help out more around the house instead of putting his wife in the awkward position of having to answer for his frequent attacks on her employer.
“I have four kids and I was getting them out of the house this morning to talk to the President about substance, so I may not be up to speed on all of [his tweets],” Conway said.
A quick perusal of Conway’s Twitter feed shows he’s a full-on Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer, all but obsessed with President Trump and his administration — Trump has been relatively quiet about the efforts, though he did tweet in November that Conway was “just trying to get publicity for himself.”
He has also acknowledged that his wife doesn’t appreciate his attacks on Trump, as seen in a November interview on the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery, not that he appears to be too concerned about the stress he adds to her life.
“I don’t think she likes it,” he told host Michael Isikoff. “But I’ve told her, I don’t like the administration, so it’s even.”
