George Conway’s attacks on Trump’s mental health are hitting him where it hurts: ‘I don’t think he’s laughing’

Published

President Donald Trump’s escalating feuds with Kellyanne Conway’s husband and the late Sen. John McCain has left many of his White House aides feeling very uncomfortable.

Multiple sources say Conway’s standing in the White House, where she serves as a senior adviser, appears to remain solid, but the president’s public spat with her husband could eventually undermine her ability to do her job if she’s asked to comment every time she appears on TV, reported Politico.

“It makes it very, very, very difficult,” said one former senior White House official.

The bizarre spectacle has also made life uncomfortable within the White House, where a current senior official said aides are trying “not to discuss it in polite company.”

“For the most part, most people internally don’t want to touch this with a 10-foot pole,” said the former senior White House official.

Another current official complained the president’s feud with the late senator and George Conway didn’t appear to accomplish any strategic goal.

“It does not appear to be a great use of our time to talk about George Conway or dead John McCain,” the current White House official said. “Why are we doing this?”

George Conway has suggested the president was mentally unfit for office and shows symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and a former Trump casino executive said he takes questions about his mental health “pretty personally.”

“I don’t think that Trump is laughing at that,” said Jack O’Donnell, the former casino executive who has turned into a Trump critic.

O’Donnell said the president “enjoys” making hurtful comments about people who criticize him, and Kellyanne Conway defended the president’s attacks against her own husband.

“You think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional, accuses him of having a mental disorder?” she told Politico. “You think he should just take that sitting down?”

Published

In a statement posted to Twitter this Friday, the daughter of Texas GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert said that her father contracted the coronavirus because he chose to ignore medical expertise.

Gohmert’s daughter Caroline, who is also a recording artist known as BELLSAINT, said that “wearing a mask is a non-partisan issue.”

“The advice of medical experts shouldn’t be politicized,” her statement read. “My father ignored medical expertise and now he has COVID.”

“It’s not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to an early grave,” she added.

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election

Published

on

There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.

Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not. Some of the scientists even work for the American government and have updated information on the status of a vaccine.

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

on

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.
