President Donald Trump escalated his feud with White House adviser and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway's husband.

Conservative attorney George Conway has been strongly criticizing his wife's boss as mentally ill and unfit for office, and Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale defended the president on Twitter.

"We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted," Parscale tweeted, using the mocking nickname that Trump has in the past. "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 quoted Parscale's tweet Tuesday morning, and added an insult of his own: "A total loser!"

Conway tweeted out another suggestion that Trump suffered from a mental disorder in an apparent response.
