George Conway reveals Trump’s lawyers kept him away from Mueller because ‘he’d lie his ass off’

Published

on

George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, revealed on Thursday that one of President Donald Trump’s own attorneys told him that he would not let his client talk to special counsel Robert Mueller because he would inevitably perjure himself.

“He lies even when it makes no sense to lie,” Conway wrote. “As one of his lawyers once told me, Trump couldn’t be allowed to talk to Mueller because ‘he’d lie his ass off.'”

Conway said this as part of a broader discussion about Trump exhibiting multiple traits associated with narcissistic personality disorder, including “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.”

In fact, Conway believes that Trump’s pathological narcissism and dishonesty are the keys to understanding just about every one of his actions.

“To understand Trump, you have to look at everything through the prism of his narcissism,” he wrote. “Once you do that, pretty much everything makes sense.”

Why is America’s suicide epidemic hitting Trump’s base so hard?

Published

on

We hear a lot about suicide when celebrities like Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade die by their own hand. Otherwise, it seldom makes the headlines. That’s odd given the magnitude of the problem.

In 2017, 47,173 Americans killed themselves. In that single year, in other words, the suicide count was nearly seven times greater than the number of American soldiers killed in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars between 2001 and 2018.

Paul Krugman: Trump’s ‘populism’ is a cruel joke that only harms those he’s claiming to help

Published

on

As president of the United States, Donald J. Trump has preached a right-wing brand of populism that often echoes Patrick Buchanan’s nationalist and protectionist themes and utter contempt for “elites” — and Trump’s rally in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday made it clear that he will be hitting those themes aggressively in his 2020 reelection campaign. But economist Paul Krugman, in a New York Times column published this week, outlines the many ways in which Trump’s “populism” is a cruel joke that only hurts the working class Americans he is claiming to look out for.
