Yesterday Trump’s newly minted campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was on air saying her candidate, Donald Trump “doesn’t hurl personal insults”. Barely 24 hours later, Trump decided to make a liar of her, going back to ‘being Trump’.
Trump then went a step further.

Trump campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway: Bailing out water with a teaspoon
“Some day, when things calm down, I’ll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika. Two clowns!” Trump tweeted.Trump went very personal, playing on the long swirling rumours about the the nature of the off-air relationship between the two divorcees.
Scarborough shot back at Trump with his own rant on Twitter.
“@HillaryClinton is targeting key swing states today while Trump starts his day obsessed with cable news hosts while channeling Gawker. SAD!” Scarborough wrote.
“Neurotic and not very bright? Look in the mirror,” he added.
“Thanks for watching. Morning Joe is enjoying its best ratings ever thanks to obsessed fans like you. GLAD,” Scarborough wrote.
Scarborough, a self-proclaimed conservative and former GOP congressman from Florida, did invite Donald Trump frequently on the program for light phone interviews, during the GOP primary process earlier this year, in recent months has come out against the candidate in crushing fashion, taking him to task on his show often, and criticizing him in a regular column for The Washington Post.
Trump’s tweets, meanwhile, are just the latest in a long line of personal attacks he’s launched at his detractors, both political and otherwise, in person and on social media.

He has degraded women, decorated war veterans, his fellow candidates for the nomination, and almost everyone in between, with personal insults and name calling, madeup stories as well as, sharp, bombastic insults.
Since launching his campaign in June 2015, Trump has called immigrants from Mexico “rapists” and drug-pushers, has suggested Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly was menstruating during the first GOP primary debate, said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who served years in a prisoner-of-war camp in Vietnam was “not a war hero” and criticized Muslim-American Gold Star parents Khizr and Ghazala Khan. He infamously referred to an African attendee at one of his rallies as ‘My Africa-American’. More recently, telling the black commnity they were at the bottom of the social and economic food-chain with no hopes, during his black outreach rally. Heck, they might as well vote for himHe also created a litany of condescending and childish nicknames for his opponents, including “Lyin’ Ted” (Ted Cruz), “Little Marco” (Marco Rubio) and “Crooked Hillary” (Hillary Clinton).
But Conway, who was promoted to be Trump’s campaign manager last week, appeared to forget each and every one of them during an interview Sunday.
“He doesn’t hurl personal insults,” Conway said on ABC’s “This Week. “I don’t like when people hurl personal insults, that will never change,” Conway said. “I’m the mother of four small children. That would be a terrible example for me to feel otherwise.”
Even after Conway was then shown a clip of herself calling Trump “vulgar” back in February, when she was still running a pro-Cruz Super PAC, and was then asked if she stood by the statement. She maintained her stoic commitment to her new employer,”I do,” she said.
