President Donald Trump repeated his (rebutted) claim that he doesn’t know George Conway on Wednesday, calling him a “whack job” who is doing a “tremendous disservice” to his wife, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

“He’s a whack job. There’s no question about it, but I really don’t know him,” Trump told reporters outside the White House before leaving for Ohio. “I think he’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife.”

“Kellyanne is a wonderful woman, and I call him Mr. Kellyanne,” Trump added, doubling down on calling George Conway by his wife’s name, which Trump seems to think is an insult.
