After months of silence, President Trump weighed in on one of his top aide’s husband for a second time in as many days on Wednesday, referring to George Conway as a “stone cold LOSER” and a “husband from hell!”

In the Wednesday morning tweet, Trump parroted talking points that his campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted earlier in the week, suggesting that George Conway’s public bashing of Trump is fueled by scorn over not getting a job in the Trump administration.

George Conway, husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has not been shy about his disdain for Trump, most recently musing about his mental health on Twitter.

Conway posted a swift, simple response on Wednesday.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
