Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik fired back at George Conway on Saturday, calling him a misogynist and criticizing him for spreading a doctored image of her.
Conway, the husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, called Stefanik “lying trash” and urged voters to support her Democratic challenger. Conway, a longtime Republican lawyer, became a sharp critic of President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans.
Stefanik ripped Conway in a tweet, writing: “the one thing I’ve NEVER been called in my life is TRASH,” adding: “You need serious help. My opponent Taxin’ Tedra [Cobb] can have your sick mysogynist [sic] support.”
Conway on Saturday also apparently spread a doctored image of Stefanik, that appeared to show her flipping the middle finger.
“The photoshopped picture that the Leftist Twitter mob led by George Conway is circulating is FAKE – I’ve been so busy exposing Adam Schiff’s #regimeofsecrecy that I haven’t had time for a manicure in weeks!” Stefanik wrote on Twitter.
Conway’s account deleted the tweets after facing criticism for spreading misinformation.
