George Conway, husband of senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, has been a known vocal critic of the Trump administration for a large portion of Donald Trump’s presidency, and his anti-Trump Twitter rants were mostly ignored from within the White House. Now, his clear ideological conflict with his wife and her boss seems to finally be boiling over as a Trump official surprised observers by pushing back against his comments.
In a tweet this Wednesday, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager took a shot at Conway for promoting an anti-Trump book.
“I remember how irrelevant you were when I met you, how far you have come with hate!” Brad Parscale tweeted. “Soon you will be irrelevant again, can’t wait!”
In a rather unprecedented move, Parscale even mentioned Kellyanne in his attack.
“I remember you sitting at @KellyannePolls table waiting for attention like a lost puppy,” he wrote. “#JustSayin, I really thought you were her body man.”
As CNBC reporter Christina Wilkie points out, what had been a mostly private annoyance within the Trump White House “just spilled over into a nasty public feud.”

As expected, Twitter is loving it:

What kind of salacious and scandalous speculation might this kick off? Asking for a friend.

Last month, Donald Trump Jr. and George Conway personally attacked each other on Twitter after Conway fired back at the eldest presidential son for disparaging witnesses that testified in the House’s impeachment inquiry.
The sheep-like loyalty of Trump supporters is starting to backfire
Donald Trump thinks his voters are morons. This universal truth was once again demonstrated this week by a Facebook ad working Trump’s new statue-oriented campaign strategy. The ad declared, “WE WILL PROTECT THIS” and featured a photo of … no, not some racist-loser Confederate general astride a horse but “Cristo Redentor,” the famous statue of Jesus Christ that sits atop Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro, which, for those keeping track, is not in the United States but in Brazil, a sovereign nation in a different continent.
Trump is living in a ‘COVIDless la-la land’ — and can’t understand why he isn’t being taken seriously: CNN’s Cuomo
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump for demanding people take him seriously as he ignores his own health experts and tries to override recommendations on school closures.
"Another day gone without the president deciding to lead us with a plan of action to fight the pandemic," said Cuomo. "Instead, we now know what he meant by pressuring states to reopen schools, ready or not, without ever offering them a plan to help. If they don't reopen, he will punish the poorest students. He said he's going to pull federal aid, and the kids that get most of that aid are the neediest. Many of them are white, by the way, and from families that may be Trumpers."
There’s about to be another shortage in masks and gloves as COVID-19 explodes — but Trump’s team says it’s nothing: report
After the United States erupted, COVID-19, masks, gowns and gloves started disappearing. It wasn't merely the medical professionals on the front lines that needed the personal protective equipment; Americans were hoping to get them too. Finally, more were made, but now the problem is back.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that there's about to be another shortage.
"Nurses say they are reusing N95 masks for days and even weeks at a time," said the Post. "Doctors say they can't reopen offices because they lack personal protective equipment (PPE). State officials say they have scoured the U.S. and international suppliers for PPE and struggle to get orders filled. Experts worry the problem could worsen as coronavirus infections climb, straining medical systems."
