WASHINGTON — President Trump declared on Tuesday morning that the husband of one of his top aides, Kellyanne Conway, was a “total loser.” On Wednesday morning, he doubled down, describing him as a “stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
The husband in question, George T. Conway III, a prominent conservative lawyer, has been publicly critical of Mr. Trump for months. But in recent days he has escalated those attacks on Twitter by reigniting a conversation about the president’s mental health and saying Mr. Trump was a malignant narcissist who fits the profile for narcissistic personality disorder.
Aides have been pressing Mr. Trump to simply ignore Mr. Conway, who in a phone interview on Tuesday said he viewed it as a “badge of honor” to be called a loser by someone he believes is unfit to hold the nation’s highest office, and said the president’s reaction only “proves the point I made yesterday.”
Mr. Trump’s attack on Mr. Conway was not unusual for the language he used or for the medium through which he employed it. Over the past two years, Mr. Trump has proved that trivial, personal fights are not a distraction from the work he is doing in office, but a core feature of the image he wants to project.
He called Rex W. Tillerson, his former secretary of state, “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell” after Mr. Tillerson criticized him in an interview last December for being undisciplined. He has taken the bait on almost every negative book written about him by a former staff member or a journalist, helping to elevate those tomes to the best-seller lists by declaring, via Twitter, that their authors are “a mess!” (Cliff Sims), a “lowlife” (Omarosa Manigault Newman) or an “idiot” (Bob Woodward).
Returning fire with fire is part of the president’s modus operandi that aides around him have internalized. On Tuesday, Mr. Trump made clear that he would hit back at criticism, even if the critic was the spouse of one of his most loyal and longest-serving aides.
Singling out Ms. Conway’s husband for presidential critique put the focus back on one of Washington’s most discussed marriages, even as Ms. Conway has tried to defuse the coverage of her husband by not commenting about him on the record because, she has told friends, of how it would affect her children.
Mr. Trump appeared to be provoked by a tweet from his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who wrote: “We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted. 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!”
In fact, Mr. Conway withdrew his name from consideration for a top job at the Justice Department, running its civil division, before he ever started. And he has known Mr. Trump for decades, since he lived in Manhattan at Trump World Tower and declined to sit on the condo board, a spot that his wife took in his stead.
In more recent history, Mr. Conway spent time with Mr. Trump on election night and at the wedding of the Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, in June 2017, when Mr. Trump even commended him on turning down the job because it would have meant reporting to a “weak” leader, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Since Mr. Conway has become more vocal in his criticism of the president, Mr. Trump has referred to him repeatedly as “Mr. Kellyanne Conway” and claimed that in his diatribes against the president, he is simply trying to gain attention through the reflected glory of his wife. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter that Mr. Conway, “often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted.”
In an interview, Mr. Conway dismissed the idea that he was coasting off interest in his wife, and said that in the course of a long marriage, it is hard to separate who is responsible for whose fortune and fame.
“The way we structured our lives before the campaign, it enabled her to build her business so she could become the campaign manager,” said Mr. Conway, who was previously a partner at the law firm Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz. “I helped in ways that enabled her to go off and be the campaign manager, and go off to the White House in the spring of 2017.”
When the couple relocated its family to Washington from New Jersey, Mr. Conway gave up his partner status at the law firm, which does not have an office in the District of Columbia, and became “of counsel.”
Mr. Conway said his motivation to publicly attack the president had been driven, at least in part, by feeling responsible for having played a small role in electing him, even if it was a tangential one of supportive spouse to the campaign manager.
“There is a little bit of guilt there,” he said. “There’s some of that.”
“He wasn’t my first choice,” Mr. Conway added. “He wasn’t her first choice. He was the last choice, in terms of the last person standing.” But Mr. Conway said his wife was now all-in for the president, much to his chagrin. “At this point, yes she is,” he said.
Ms. Conway, who led a briefing on Mr. Trump’s initiative to stop opioid abuse on Tuesday morning and was set to personally brief the president on the administration’s achievements later in the day, declined to comment. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Ms. Conway said she did not share her husband’s view of the president’s mental health.
Critics of Mr. Conway have noted that Mr. Trump revealed himself fully during the campaign, and has not changed. What has changed, in fact, is Mr. Conway’s view of him.
“I had assumed and hoped that the gravity of the office would lead him to something greater,” Mr. Conway said. “That respect for the office, respect for history and the desire to leave a legacy would lead him to see that there is something beyond himself that he needs to achieve.” But Mr. Conway said that “on Day 1, his focus on the crowds, it was clear almost instantaneously that he’s not capable of it.”
A lifelong Republican, Mr. Conway said he had not ruled out supporting a Democrat in 2020. “It depends on what they say,” he said, “but under no circumstances would I vote or support Trump.”
Some followers of the White House’s personal dramas believe the Conways are playing both sides and looking for a big payday if Ms. Conway decides to leave the administration. But Mr. Conway said that a Mary Matalin-James Carville-style road show was an unlikely outcome.
“I almost wish that were so,” he said. “This is just my way of expressing my views about something I find thoroughly maddening, which is the utter incompetence and mendacity of the president and the administration. I don’t end up getting in arguments at home about it.”B:
