The president's son beat him for it.
Eric Trump wrote that Conway's criticism shows "absolute disrespect" for his wife:
Out of all the ugliness in politics, George Conway's utter disrespect to his wife, her career, her job and everything else so hard could fight them, could outdo them all. @KellyannePolls is a great person and frankly, his actions are terrible.

It was not long before the tweet became viral. just not in the way Trump probably intended.
Most answers were extremely critical. Conway even reiterated some, including a rather blunt assessment by author Reza Aslan:
Of all the ugliness in politics, the Trumps' total disrespect for the rule of law, the presidency and their jobs and everything that this nation has is Fought hard to reach them all. Donald Trump is a terrible person and, frankly, his actions are terrible. https://t.co/fEtH3MLcyN[19459003-IanBassin(@ianbassin) December 4, 2018

Do you understand the irony of attacking the husband of a woman you allegedly respect? She is still married to the man, so he must not be so bad. 😉 Your boss is also an asshole. Do you know the guy?

It's okay, Eric. I'm still trying to figure out how your wife lies in the stomach next to a man who cheated on millions of children with a cancer fund.
Every marriage is a mystery.

I know the Conways
I know George. He is a good man.
I was at her wedding.
Stay out of the business with married peoples and take care of your own.
NEVER named Trump should ever talk about "disrespect".
Let Kellyanne Worry

I have the feeling that cheating on your wife and committing violations of law violations is somehow more disrespectful ,

I think his tweet about manipulating witnesses scared you?

Kellyanne has cleaned up this story so well … the only thing that could make her flare up was a high-profile white knight for her. Jr had sewn the stupid son long ago, but he had props for him still jostling

Marriage and moral advice of a trump card. That's funny.

Out of all the ugliness in politics, Kelly Conway fights so hard against her husband, his career, his job, and everything he has becoming one could surpass them all. George Conway is a great person and frankly, her actions are terrible.

How the hell does Eric Trump @ gtconway3d disrespect "for his wife, who the hell does he think he knows What's going on in Kellyanne Conway's home?
And the last question: did Eric Trump forget who his father is? https://t.co/oiydG2IalN[19459003-JoeWalsh(@WalshFreedom) December 4, 2018  I do not believe anyone with your surname should teach someone else's marriage.

I'll be honest that you are … you my FAVORITE. @ SNL character.

It seems strange to me that you do not mark Mr. Conway in your Twitter admonition but an employee of your father, that is to say, I have the impression that you are heating him to your husband m silence.
