George Conway Cites Trump’s Extramarital ‘Porn Star’ Affair in Response to Eric Trump

George Conway’s criticism of President Donald Trump (also known in the Conway household as wife Kellyanne Conway’s boss) continues unabated. The most recent example is his apparent re-tweeting of a remarkably harsh defense of his behavior after criticism by Trump’s son Eric.

Confused? Well, let’s unpack this for you, shall we?

First of all, Mr. Conway has become a more vocal critic of the White House, going so far to even launch a consortium of conservative lawyers eager to bring back some conservative legal guidelines to check what he sees as Trump’s untoward behavior. The fact that his wife Kellyanne Conway is a senior adviser to the Commander in Chief, and frequently appears on television to defend President Trump’s has led to curious public discussions about the Conway marriage.

So now that we understand context, let’s go into the communications yesterday that has led to pique conflict. It started with Trump’s tweeting ostensible encouragement to Roger Stone, a tweet that many see as potential evidence of obstruction of justice and witness tampering (in light of the Mueller investigation.)

Conway tweeted in response:

Monday evening, Eric Trump seemed to have enough and attacked Mr. Conway’s “utter disrespect” shown his wife:

Enter former CNN host Reza Aslan, who compared Conway’s behavior with the alleged behavior of Eric Trump’s father, who is alleged to have had two affairs shortly after his youngest son Barron was born. Aslan tweeted:

As we can see above (courtesy of Twitter maven Yashar Ali), George Conway retweeted Aslan’s rebuttal to Eric Trump, who has wisely refrained from continuing the public spat.

All caught up now? Good. Now let’s be careful out there. We can do better. Go team!
