It's been called a "searing attack" and escalation of "war." Now Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway's harsh words about Mitt Romney on Sunday are allegedly ticking off her boss, at least according to two top transition team sources who spoke with MSNBC. They tell the network they talked to a "furious" Trump on Monday and suggest members of the team— MSNBC names Steve Bannon (reportedly no fan of Romney as well) and Reince Priebus —are having issues with a going-rogue Conway. Conway's response to MSNBC: "It is all false. And sexist." The AP speculate: "The extraordinary public nature of [the anti-Romney] effort has also stirred speculation that it could be a Trump-approved attempt to humiliate a prominent Republican who staunchly opposed him throughout the presidential campaign."
Conway had on Thursday suggested on Twitter that secretary of state candidate Romney was disloyal to Trump. On Sunday, she got much more pointed while making the TV rounds. She appeared on NBC's Meet the Press, ABC's This Week, and CNN's State of the Union,
saying Romney had been "nothing but awful" to Trump for a year, per the AP. Politico reports she had this to say on CNN: "Gov. Romney in the last four years, I mean, has he been around the globe doing something on behalf of the United States of which we’re unaware? Did he go and intervene in Syria, where they’re having a massive humanitarian crisis? Has he been helpful to Mr. Netanyahu?" (Read more Kellyanne Conway stories.)
