Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway came to the defense of President Donald Trump in the ongoing feud between the president and her husband, George Conway, saying that the president should be able to respond when someone says he has a mental illness.

The counselor came to the president’s aid in a Wednesday Politico article, saying that her husband should not “play psychiatrist” after he had suggested in tweets that Trump suffered from “narcissistic personality disorder” and “malignant narcissism” during their dayslong feud, as IJR Blue reported.

In the interview, Mrs. Conway said the president was a “counterpuncher” and had not fired back at her husband — who has targeted Trump on Twitter in the past — “out of respect for [her].”

“He left it alone for months out of respect for me,” she explained. “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?”

Conway’s defense of the president comes after she already brushed off her husband’s tweets on Tuesday, saying she does not share his concern about Trump’s mental state, as IJR Red reported.

Watch her comments below:

Trump issued another response to his counselor’s husband’s tweets on Wednesday morning, firing back that “Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is very jealous of his wife’s success” and referring to Mr. Conway as “a stone cold loser [and] husband from hell!”

The president took the back-and-forth off Twitter on Wednesday afternoon when he told reporters that Mr. Conway was “a whack job” and was “doing a tremendous disservice to a wife and family” right before the Politico article was published.

Watch his comments below:

The pair’s feud has been going strong for two days now, with the president and Mr. Conway taking personal jabs at each other both on and off-line after the former questioned the latter’s mental health, as noted by IJR Blue.

Mr. Conway told The Washington Post on Tuesday that he tweets about the president so that he can “get it off [his] chest” and that he “[does not] end up screaming at [Kellyanne] about it.”

I have sympathy for Kellyanne and her 4 kids. It must be Hell to be living with such a donkey of a husband and work for a great President. She needs to pack up his crap and leave it on the front porch. She’d be much better off without him.

I respect Kellyanne for her conflicted loyalties, but her husband is a butt. He’s not only putting her in the middle, but leveraging HER achievements as a platform for his own brayings.

For any who make noises about Trump being (fill in the blank) consider what a selfish bastard Conway is by his conduct.
