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

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?”

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Omarosa -- who wrote an insider's account of life in the White House after she was unceremoniously fired -- said there was little in the new book that surprised her.

Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.
