“This is absolutely uncalled for and disgusting. What is wrong with people? George Conway is the last person that can call someone 'trash,'" Haley tweeted on Monday afternoon. Her tweet also featured an article published by Townhall, titled “George Conway: Let's Face It, This Elise StefanikElise Marie StefanikThe Hill's Morning Report - Trump trial begins with clash over rules White House appoints GOP House members to advise Trump's impeachment team Lawmakers push back at Pentagon's possible Africa drawdown MORE Character Is 'Trash.’”

The post by the conservative website was centered around a tweet shared Friday by Conway that blasted the New York congresswoman as “lying trash” and urged his followers “give to her opponent.”

“You’ll say anything to get the vice-presidential nomination, won’t you, @NikkiHaley?” he said in a follow-up tweet. He also took a shot at the ratio of comments Haley received on her tweet criticizing him in comparison to its likes and retweets, writing in another tweet: “Nice ratio here.”

Conway sounded off on Trump Jr.’s criticism, writing: “Each of Taylor, Kent, and Yovanovitch has more intelligence, talent, integrity, decency, honor, and patriotism in each of their fingers than you and your father will ever have."
