The very popular President Donald J. Trump has living rent-free in “Mr. Kellyanne Conway’s” head for quite some time now.

It only takes one visit to George Conway’s Twitter account to see the obsession he has with President Trump. Conway, the husband of top Trump advisor, Kellyanne Conway, spends a significant amount of time criticizing President Trump on Twitter.

In a highly unusual move, Eric Trump, the usually soft-spoken son of President Trump took to Twitter in December, to blast the husband of Trump’s most loyal adviser, Kellyanne Conway.

In his tweet, Eric Trump, the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, called out Kellyanne Conway’s husband’s public criticism of President Trump, claiming that George Conway’s remarks reveal “utter disrespect” toward his wife, her career, place of work and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve.

Eric Trump continued, “@KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”

In March, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale also took on Kellyanne Conway’s disrespectful husband, George, when he revealed that President Trump turned him down for a job he desperately wanted, saying, he’s “jealous” of his wife’s success, and ended by saying, “POTUS doesn’t even know him!”

Trump retweeted Parscale’s tweet that claimed President Trump couldn’t pick George Conway out in a line-up, adding his own commentary: “A total loser!”

Washington Examiner reporter, Caitlin Yilek recorded a call with Kellyanne Conway that was supposed to be an off-the-record conversation between herself and Kellyanne Conway’s assistant, Tom Joannou. The call was in reference to an article she wrote last night about Conway being a top contender for Trump’s next chief of staff.

In the Washington Examiner article, Caitlin Yilek wrote noted a well-known fact: George Conway likes to publicly feud with Trump. It was this admission that Conway found unacceptable.

President Trump is weighing whether to replace acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Trump has asked advisers for their thoughts on Conway as his top White House aide.

Conway would likely face pushback from Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who also works in the White House. Conway and Kushner are not friendly, two people familiar with the matter said.

Conway has been in the middle of Trump’s barbs with her husband, George, a conservative lawyer who frequently makes headlines for his criticism of the president. George Conway said earlier this month that White House aides should resign unless they can “have some moderating or blunting effect” on Trump. He refused to discuss his wife, who has worked for Trump since the 2016 presidential campaign.

Today, the Washington Examiner released the “off-the-record” call that started with Joannou, which eventually ended up being between Yilek and Kellyanne Conway.

According to the Washington Examiner – Tom Joannou, Conway’s assistant, contacted Caitlin Yilek on Tuesday evening to ask for her phone number without specifying why he wanted to talk. Joannou called Yilek on Wednesday morning.

Joannou requested that the conversation with him be off the record. This reporter agreed, but moments later, Conway took over the call, initiating a new conversation without any agreement that it was off the record. The Washington Examiner is publishing audio and a transcript of the full exchange.

Conway, 52, was furious that her husband George Conway, 56, who has attracted considerable media coverage by publicly feuding with Trump, was mentioned in the story. She took issue with a line in the story that she had “been in the middle of Trump’s barbs with her husband, George, a conservative lawyer who frequently makes headlines for his criticism of the president.”

She said: “So I just am wondering why in God’s earth you would need to mention anything about George Conway’s tweets in an article that talks about me as possibly being chief of staff. Other than it looks to me like there’s no original reporting here, you just read Twitter and other people’s stuff, which I guess is why you don’t pick up the phone when people call from the White House because, if it’s not on Twitter or it’s not on cable TV, it’s not real.”

When this reporter said she had initially not taken the call because it appeared to be from Egypt and that the mention of George Conway was “relevant context,” Conway asked: “Do you talk about other people’s spouses in your pieces, ’cause I’ve been looking around, I haven’t learned a single thing from any of your pieces, and I’m just wondering if you routinely talk about peoples spouses.”

Here’s the recording of the call:

Was it appropriate for the Washington Examiner to report about Conway’s anti-Trump husband in her article about Conway’s potential promotion in the White House? Was Conway correct to call her out on her attempt to cast a shadow on her potential new role as chief of staff to President Trump, simply because of her husband anti-Trump tweets? Did she go too far with her remarks? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
