"Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all," Trump tweeted.

Conway has been publicly criticizing Trump, his wife's boss, for months. On Monday, he suggested in a tweet that Trump was tampering with witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Conway, a lawyer, has organized a group with the goal of urging fellow conservative lawyers to speak out against the Trump administration's actions.

Kellyanne Conway, on the other hand, is one of the administration's most ardent and public supporters, speaking in support of the president's actions on a weekly basis. She regularly makes the rounds on cable news networks defending the president.

Trump has pushed back against George's criticism, telling reporters that he is only speaking out to "get publicity for himself."

Kellyanne Conway last month poked fun at the media's coverage of her husband by making her Twitter bio, "The 'Kellyanne Conway' in 'Kellyanne Conway's Husband'."

Conway in a Washington Post profile published over the summer called her husband's repeated criticisms of her boss "disrespectful."

"I think it's disrespectful," she said. "I think it disrespects his wife."

She then walked back her comments by saying that "people see it that way."

In the profile, she also said that "part of" her husband feels she "chose" Trump over him.

"I feel there's a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him," Kellyanne told the Post. "Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage."
