Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, was allegedly caught making fun of fellow Trump staffers at a party.

A partygoer who heard Conway created a Twitter account about the evening and posted photos and tweets from the event, reports Politico.

The source tweeted, "Kellyanne was at an embassy party last night, leaking sensitive Priebus and Trump White House conversations to [Washington Post] reporters," the Daily Mail notes.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

The party was held in Washington, D.C., on June 8. One tweet described how Conway allegedly did an impersonation of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, urging White House aides to stop leaking: "She had a good/cruel riff mocking [Reince Priebus] in WH staff meetings. 'No leaks guuuys' she said, mimicking him in a dopey voice."

She also poked fun at his name, according to the source: "He should just be honest: 'I'm upset because there's someone working on a story who pronounces it RAYNSE instead of REINCE.'"

Another tweet described her questioning the work ethic of legislative affairs director Marc Short: "At one point [Conway] said 'Honestly, what the f*** does Marc Short do all day?'"

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true:

The Republican National Committee was also one of her alleged targets. "So [Conway] held court for awhile," a tweet read. Along with knocking [Priebus], she also made jokes about the ineffectiveness of his RNC world."

The conversations were confirmed by two sources, according to Politico. However, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer disputed the account, explaining that Conway was mocking reporters, not Priebus or other White House colleagues.

Conway's rocky tenure in the Trump administration has been marked by a series of gaffes -- most famously, her use of the term "alternative facts" to describe Spicer giving false information at a press conference, and blaming former President Barack Obama's policies for a "Bowling Green Massacre" that never happened.

Shortly after those incidents, she generated additional controversy by endorsing Ivanka Trump's clothing line during an appearance on Fox News in February. She urged viewers to purchase the first daughter's products after the announcement by Nordstrom and other retailers that they were discontinuing them because of poor sales caused by the #GrabYourWallet boycott.

"Go buy Ivanka's stuff, is what I would tell you," said Conway said in response to the boycott, reported Cosmopolitan magazine at the time. "It's a wonderful line. I own some of it. I fully -- I'm going to just, I'm going to give a free commercial here: Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online."

Conway's endorsement was questionable because federal law bars public employees from making an "endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity."
