George Conway Blasts White House Staff Who 'Work for A Rapist,' Despite Wife Kellyanne Conway Working for Trump

Attorney and frequent Trump administration critic George Conway lashed out at White House staff on Tuesday, slamming them for working for "a rapist," despite his wife Kellyanne Conway working as a senior counselor to the president.

"I love how these people who work for a rapist have no compunction about making accusations of abuse by someone who criticizes the rapist," Conway wrote on Twitter, re-tweeting a post by conservative political analyst Bill Kristol. Trump has been accused of sexual assault and rape by multiple women, but none of those allegations have been proven, and the president has never been indicted for any sexual crime.

In Kristol's original tweet, the analyst wrote: "Trump has the White House communications staff using Trump-compliant media organs to go after Scaramucci. Trump senses that a high-profile defector who's willing to say he was wrong and who can fight back when attacked is particularly dangerous."

The tweet also shared a link to an article by the Washington Examiner, entitled: "'Dirty secret': Scaramucci 'abused staff' and claimed White House officials were having affair." The article cited unnamed sources who reportedly said that Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served as White House communications director under Trump, had been abusive toward staff and had confronted a female staffer about an alleged affair with a more senior male official.

Scaramucci has become highly critical of Trump and his administration over the past couple of months. He has confirmed that he no longer supports Trump and has argued that more Republicans will abandon the president ahead of the 2020 election. During a Sunday interview with Fox News, Scaramucci said Trump loyalists should be deprogrammed as if they are in a cult. He previously said the president was "disassembling a little bit and he's sounding more and more nonsensical."

Conway and his relationship with his wife, who routinely goes on television and in front of reporters to defend Trump and his administration, has been the subject of rampant speculation over the past couple years. While George Conway regularly attacks the president and his policies, Kellyanne Conway is one of his most ardent defenders, often stirring controversy with the remarks she makes to reporters and the media.

Back in March, Kellyanne Conway publicly disagreed with her husband after he argued that Americans should be concerned about the president's "mental condition and psychological state."

"No, I don't share those concerns," she told reporters when asked about her husband's warning.

A couple of days later, after Trump attacked her husband directly, she defended the president.

"[Trump] left it alone for months out of respect for me," Kellyanne Conway told Politico. "But you think he shouldn't respond when somebody, a non-medical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder? You think he should just take that sitting down?" She added that her husband should not be playing psychiatrist.
