Trump biographer explains that spouses helped bring down Nixon — and why Trump should be afraid of George Conway

Published

on

On Monday, Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio warned President Donald Trump to take George Conway’s, the husband of Trump’s White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, criticism seriously.

In response to Trump’s twitter storm over the weekend, George Conway tweeted that the president must have a mental illness.

“Conway feels very strongly about this, and it’s surprising considering who his wife is,” CNN’s Don Lemon said.

“You’re right. And I hear every day from mental health experts who are concerned about the president’s condition,” D’Antonio said. “There’s actually a book written by 36 psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, each of whom diagnoses the president. So there is a problem here. This is a very troubled man. This president is being owned by a TV show and a deceased senator. This is something that Americans have never faced before. I think we’re all right to be concerned about it. I think George Conway raises a valid point.

D’Antonio then explained that as an insider Kellyanne Conway knows a lot about Trump and warned that it was the spouses who helped take down Richard Nixon.

“This is a woman who has been in the White House longer than anyone else. She knows everything about what goes on there. I think George Conway is well informed. Remember, it was spouses in the case of Martha Mitchell, during the Nixon administration, who helped bring down Nixon because they got fed up. They started to tell the truth to reporters about what was really going on. So I would watch out for the husbands and wives of people who work for Donald Trump,” he said.

Lawrence O’Donnell throttles Donny Deutsch for saying Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Trump: ‘This is pure guesswork’

Published

Lawrence O'Donnell and Donny Deutsch had quite the exchange in the post-debate conversation on MSNBC Wednesday.

Deutsch tried to say that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's outstanding debate performance doesn't matter because Warren can't win in a match-up against President Donald Trump.

"I do not believe Elizabeth Warren, on stage with Donald Trump, beats him," he told the MSNBC panel. "And I think if we're honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me. It's — and I also think when you can label somebody a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I'm not saying it's fair. When he can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist, and he's on stage with her, the Democrats lose."

A shocking photograph of a Salvadoran man and his baby daughter drowned in the Rio Grande fueled a surge of emotion around the world Wednesday -- as US Democrats furiously denounced Donald Trump's immigration policies.

"Trump is responsible for these deaths," said Beto O'Rourke, one of several Democratic White House hopefuls who took to Twitter to lash out at the president.

Former vice president Joe Biden, who is also seeking the presidency in 2020, called the image "gut-wrenching."

"History will judge how we respond to the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant families & children -- we can't be silent," he said.

Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate

Published

on

Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.

The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.

But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.
