Eric Trump unloaded with force Wednesday evening against George Conway, saying the Washington attorney’s constant criticisms of the Trump administration were disrespectful to his wife, Kellyanne Conway, who currently serves as a senior presidential counsellor.
“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 Trump said. “@KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”
The first son made sure to tag Kellyanne Conway personally just to make sure she didn’t miss it.

George Conway, a longtime GOP lawyer, has become a charter member of the #NeverTrump wing of his party, routinely denouncing the president on his Twitter feed and creating an untold number of headaches for his wife. His most recent snark concerned the president’s praise of Roger Stone, which Conway quote tweeted along with federal statute concerning witness tampering.
“File under “18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512,” he said. George Conway didn’t respond directly to Eric Trump, but rather elected to retweet criticism of the tweet from others — like former CNN host Reza Aslan.
“Wait. Did I miss something? Did George Conway pay money to have sex with a porn star right after his wife gave birth?” he asked in a post retweeted more than 10,000 times.
Conway, once an unknown operative, has seen his star power grow in recent months with his lacerating critiques of Trump and his inner circle. The president has notably refrained from attacking Conway on Twitter, and Eric’s broadside is the most significant pushback from Team Trump so far.
Kellyanne has been notably skittish toward questions surrounding their marriage and her husband’s anti-Trump positions, and pointedly accused CNN of “sexism” for asking her about the issue in April.
