President Trump on Tuesday lashed out at the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway a day after George Conway questioned Trump's mental fitness because of a weekend tweetstorm.

George Conway's criticism of the president has drawn a lot of attention and raised many questions about his relationship with his wife, who remains one of Trump's most prominent and vigorous defenders on cable news.

"He hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success", Parscale had tweeted. POTUS doesn't even know him!' Parscale tweeted Monday night.

'Agree with this, but would add that *allnow* about Trump's mental condition and psychological state, including and especially the media, Congress-and the Vice President and Cabinet, ' Conway wote.

George Conway is known as one of Trump's most vocal critics, but his attacks got fiercer than ever Monday, when he tweeted images from the American Psychiatric Association's "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" and highlighted pages including symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder.

"Congratulations!" he tweeted. "You just guaranteed that millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder and malignant narcissism!"

Kellyanne Conway on Monday tried once again to distance herself from her husband's comments, telling Fox News that she doesn't "share" his concerns over Trump. On Twitter and in media op-eds, George Conway has questioned everything from Trump's mental state to whether he colluded with Russian Federation.

"I don't share those concerns and I have four kids, and I was getting out of house this morning and was talking with the president about substance so I may not be up to speed on all of them", she said when asked whether she shares the concerns her husband has voiced. Trump's attempt at a burn capped a deranged long weekend of incessant tweeting from the president, in which he took shots at the late Sen.

But he also took some credit for her present success.

Others quickly noted that Conway turned down President Trump, which has been well-documented. Consider them as a product of his pathologies, and they make ideal sense. He called Matt Whitaker's nomination "unconstitutional" given his previous comments criticizing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

George Conway has also publicly accused Trump of lying about payments made to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult-film star Stormy Daniels to buy their silence about alleged affairs with Trump. "He is so weak, '" said Conway, referring to Trump's feelings about Sessions. "I feel there's a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him", she told The Post.
