George Conway is on a roll this week, mercilessly trolling Trump the last couple of days on Twitter.

Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, took to his Twitter this week to weigh in on the controversy surrounding Omarosa Manigault Newman’s book launch and to call out Trump’s “false and misleading statements.”

Most recently, Conway took on the controversy regarding Trump’s Tuesday morning tweet calling Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog.”

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!” Trump tweeted.

Conway retweeted a post by Mark Berman, a reporter for The Washington Post, containing a screenshot of a quote from a recent article by The Washington Post regarding Trump’s post.

Longtime Trump observers say it is a measure of his rage and sense of betrayal that he called Manigault Newman “that dog.” The president, who has an aversion to dogs and other pets, considers canine comparisons to be among his most devastating put-downs.

Conway quickly followed up with a mixture of retweets and a tweet mocking Trump’s aversion to dogs.

Putin even made and appearance on Conway’s feed to complete the series:

Conway started out Monday taking on a tweet from Trump aimed at Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

“The very unpopular Governor of Ohio (and failed presidential candidate) @JohnKasich hurt Troy Balderson’s recent win by tamping down enthusiasm for an otherwise great candidate. Even Kasich’s Lt. Governor lost Gov. race because of his unpopularity. Credit to Troy on the BIG WIN!” he tweeted.

As The Washington Post reported:

[Conway] retweeted the presidential statement but tacked on his own message. Conway linked to a recent Cincinnati Enquirer/Suffolk poll of Ohio. The data shows that rather than being “very unpopular,” only 34.8 percent of Buckeye State residents had an unfavorable opinion of their governor. Trump, however, notched a 58.6 percent unfavorability among Ohioans in the same poll.

Later that day Conway, posted another barb when he added his own take on a tweet by The Washington Post‘s Philip Bump.

Referencing White House efforts to discredit Omarosa in the wake of the controversy surrounding her book launch, Bump framed the situation in the hypothetical context of the business world, tweeting:

“How would the board of a company react if the CEO told them that he hadn’t fired an unqualified employee who was disliked by coworkers because the employee constantly praised him?” he tweeted.

Conway retweeted that post, adding his own thoughts: “Interesting analogy. Likewise, what if a CEO routinely made false and misleading statements about himself, the company, and results, and publicly attacked business partners, company ‘divisions’ (w/ scare quotes!), employees, and analysts, and kowtowed to a dangerous competitor?”

That post has been retweeted more than 8500 times so far with over 9500 comments and nearly 28,000 likes.
