As the controversy between President Donald Trump and George Conway continues, a CNN panel hosted by Jake Tapper suggested that Trump keeps fanning the fire in order to distract America from his failures.
George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, called out the president and claimed his latest Twitter rant showed that he had a mental illness.
“He escalated his feud after Conway stated publicly questioning the president’s mental fitness for office,” Tapper said.
Jen Psaki, former White House Communications Director under Barack Obama, explained that Trump is a “marketing expert” and is using the tabloid drama to distract from real issues.
“We are not talking about the fact that he is in Ohio in a place where the plants are closing down and people are losing jobs even though he promised he would bring them back,” Psaki said. “We are not talking about the ups and downs of the Mueller report. He is a marketing expert.”
“Voters can care less,” Journalist Tiffany Cross said. “It is very inside the Beltway. For the people out there worried about getting laid off or worried about health care expenses those things matter.”

Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.
Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
‘He’s lost his marbles’: CNN reporter burns Trump lawyer for death threat against ex-election security official
CNN White House correspondent John Harwood on Tuesday hammered Trump attorney Joe diGenova for issuing death threats to former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Chris Krebs.
On Monday, diGenova told right-wing talk show host Howie Carr that Krebs, who was fired by President Donald Trump for verifying that the 2020 election was secure, should be "drawn and quartered" and "taken out at dawn and shot."
Rapture-believing Mike Pompeo has Trump’s approval to bully Iran as long as he doesn’t ‘start World War III’
President Donald Trump has given his advisers the go-ahead to antagonize Iran in the final weeks of his administration.
Multiple U.S. officials told The Daily Beast that Trump has become less involved than ever with Iran policy, and one White House official said he's "checked out" on the issue to focus on his effort to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden.
Trump has given Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a believer in Iran's role in the biblical prophesy about the end times, authority to do whatever he wants to the Islamic Republic as long he doesn't "start World War III," according to two senior administration officials.
