Kellyanne Conway says she doesn’t share husband’s concerns on Trump’s mental fitness

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday said that she doesn’t share the same concerns as her husband about President Trump’s mental health following a string of tweets from George Conway on the subject. 

“No I don’t share those concerns,” Kellyanne Conway told reporters outside the White House.

{mosads}”I have four kids, and I was getting them out of the house this morning before I got here so I didn’t talk to the president about substance, so I may not be up to speed on all” of his tweets, she added.

George Conway, an attorney who has garnered quite a following on Twitter for his constant critiques of the president, has raised questions in recent days about Trump’s mental state.

He suggested Monday that the president has at least two diagnosable personality disorders, sharing an image of the cover of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the pages for narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder on Twitter.

Last week, he posted a series of tweets asking whether a “serious inquiry” needs to be made into the president’s mental state. 

He has pinned a tweet from Sunday to the top of his profile that reads “his condition is getting worse.”

The difference in opinion regarding the president between Kellyanne Conway and her husband has become a point of focus on social media.

The Conways have remained publicly civil despite their disagreements regarding the president. Kellyanne Conway said in November that her husband’s criticism of Trump “doesn’t affect me or my job.”

Also in November, Trump claimed George Conway was “just trying to get publicity for himself” in writing an op-ed raising concerns about the appointment of then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

The president sent dozens of tweets or retweets over the weekend, lashing out at his critics and sharing supportive messages from other accounts. Trump attended Sunday morning church services on St. Patrick’s Day, but otherwise had no public events scheduled.
