(Newser) – Eric Trump thinks George Conway's constant disagreement with President Trump is one of the ugliest things he's seen in politics. The Trump son—whose father's affair with Marla Maples kept tabloids busy in the early '90s—spoke out Monday at the "utter disrespect" Conway is showing to his wife, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, the Hill reports. "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," Eric Trump tweeted. Kellyanne Conway is a "great person and frankly his actions are horrible," he added.

George Conway—a respected conservative attorney—has spoken out against Trump's policies numerous times, and recently started a Super PAC to oppose the president, Raw Story reports. Eric Trump may have been angered Monday by a George Conway tweet in which he suggested Trump's praise of Roger Stone for vowing not to testify against him could be considered witness tampering. Conway later retweeted remarks mocking Eric Trump's tweet, including this one from Obama-era White House counsel Eric Bassin: "Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect the Trumps show toward the rule of law, the presidency and its place of work, and everything this nation has fought SO hard to achieve might top them all." (Earlier this month, Trump dismissed "Mr. Kellyanne Conway" as a publicity seeker.)
