Yesterday, after a morning tweet storm by President Trump, George Conway, the husband of the Counselor to the President of the United States, Kellyanne Conway, implied that the president had broken the law with a single tweet.

George, an attorney himself, clearly felt that the president broke the law, and he certainly didn’t feel the need to hold back on account of his wife’s job at the White House. This apparently got under the skin of Mr. Trump’s second oldest son, Eric Trump, who used the occasion to attack Mr. Conway and paint his actions towards his wife as ‘horrible’:
“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. @KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible,” Eric Trump tweeted.
While some twitter users agreed with Eric, he really did appear to walk right into a firestorm himself, as users on Twitter began bringing up the fact that his father, Donald Trump, didn’t just disrespect the career of his wives, but cheated on them multiple times, sometimes even with adult entertainment stars.
Your dad had sex with a porn star while married to your stepmother mere months after giving birth to your brother. Now that’s utter disrespect don’t you think? Keep your day job, Eric cuz you’d be a sh*tty marriage counselor.

While it may be unusual to attack the employer of one’s wife in such a public arena, it’s important to note that these are not normal times, and George Conway has repeatedly criticized both Trump and the White House in the past, while the couple remains married.
