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?”

Trump’s ‘no collusion’ lie is finally falling apart — but will Americans actually notice?

Published

on

Although the Mueller Report has been in the public domain for nearly two months, there’s still a ton of confusion and disinformation around it. The confusion is specifically due to two things: Very few voters have actually read it, and Donald Trump is delighted to exploit that fact. It doesn’t help that Robert Mueller has been more than a little cryptic about his findings — refusing to answer questions or to appear for congressional testimony to clear the air.

Consequently, the president and his Red Hat loyalists continue to repeat the “NO COLLUSION!' lie with very little push-back. The all-caps falsehood gains momentum every time Trump repeats it. Likewise, Bill Barr’s March 24 letter and his subsequent public remarks erroneously confirmed Trump’s lie before anyone, including Congress, was allowed to actually read the report.

Trump calls himself a rock star as he tries to drum up interest in his Orlando rally: ‘Going to be wild!’

Published

on

President Donald Trump compared himself to a rock star ahead of his campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, where hundreds of supporters camped out a day ahead of the Florida event.

Supporters waited in line more than 40 hours before Tuesday night's rally at the Amway Center, and the president claimed that showed he was as popular as musicians who pack arenas for rock concerts.

"The Fake News doesn’t report it," Trump tweeted, "but Republican enthusiasm is at an all time high. Look what is going on in Orlando, Florida, right now! People have never seen anything like it (unless you play a guitar). Going to be wild - See you later!"

Republican lawmakers ask judge to destroy smoking gun documents proving GOP’s white supremacy

Published

on

Republicans on Monday sought a court order to block damning documents from being used against them in a lawsuit.

"North Carolina Republican lawmakers on Monday asked a court to make sure the files of the now-deceased GOP strategist Tom Hofeller are destroyed, or at least kept secret, instead of being used in a high-profile gerrymandering lawsuit," the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

"The filing comes after the groups behind the lawsuit, including Common Cause, accused Republican lawmakers of making false statements in court in a previous gerrymandering case, when the state’s 2011 maps were ruled unconstitutional," the newspaper noted. "That blockbuster accusation made national headlines and was, it said, based on Hofeller’s files which had been secret until recently."
