On Wednesday, the feud between Kellyanne Conway's husband, George Conway, and President Donald Trump escalated as the men traded barbs over Twitter.


Addressing reporters on the South lawn, Trump tried to distance himself -- yet lobbed another insult at Conway.

"I don't know him. He's a wack job, but I don't know him," Trump said.

"I think he's doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife."
