George Conway, husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, is making his outspoken criticisms of President Trump known again, this time telling White House staffers that they should have their boss mentally committed.
Responding to Trump’s recent exchange with reporters on the South Lawn of the White House where he referred to himself as the “chosen one” and doubled down on his recent assertion that Jews who vote against him are “disloyal,” Conway fired off a tweet directed at White House staff, telling them that their boss is in dire need of medical attention.
“Time to get him in the chopper up to Bethesda,” he added.
To @WhiteHouse Staff:
Seriously, its time to call these guys. Time to get him in the chopper up to Bethesda:https://t.co/zyvfkkrj2S

As Mediaite points out, Conway has called for Trump to be whisked off to Walter Reed before. In June, Conway reacted to a rambling interview Trump gave to Fox Business and implored White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to have the President committed.
“Mick, you need to take him to Walter Reed right away,” Conway tweeted on June 26.
Questions about Trump’s mental fitness are not just hyperbole. Late last month, a group of psychiatrists wanted Congress to ask former Special Counsel Robert Mueller if he would ever consider requesting an evaluation of Trump’s mental stability.
“What was really alarming to us is the president did not meet any of the criteria for mental capacity and the level of incapacity was beyond our expectation,” Yale University professor and mental health expert Bandy Lee told The Washington Post.
Watch CNN’s Wolf Blitzer make Texas Republican sweat over impeachment hearings
On Tuesday, Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) discussed the impeachment hearings with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room." Hurd, the only Black Republican in the House and a former CIA officer, was evasive in questioning — but ultimately agreed that President Donald Trump could be impeached if the allegations over Ukraine hold up.
"The top diplomat in ukraine, Bill Taylor, still testifying, and in his single spaced 15-page testimony said this: Referring to Ambassador Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, Ambassador Sondland told me President Trump had told him he wants President Zelensky to state publicly that Ukraine will investigate Burisma, that is the Ukrainian oil and gas company that Hunter Biden was on the board, and alleged Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. election," said Blitzer. "In addition, Taylor said that Sondland told him that everything depended on that. His word, everything, including not only security assistance but a meeting with the president."
Trump wanted Ukraine president to do a CNN interview on camera to say he was investigating the Bidens
Ambassador Bill Taylor's 15-page opening statement is being called "devastating" by political analysts and experts who recognize Taylor outed President Donald Trump for an impeachable offense, as outlined in the Constitution.
Namely, Taylor outlined that Rudy Giuliani was taking direction directly from the president of the United States, said national security and legal analyst, Susan Hennessey.
Taylor also testified that he sent a memo to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about the concerns he was seeing. It's the first indication that a memo exists as a warning and it was acknowledged by Trump's officials.
Russia’s former foreign minister calls for impeachment: ‘The America I knew … is gone’
On Tuesday, former Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev penned an op-ed in The New York Times calling on Congress to impeach President Donald Trump — arguing that it would set a moral standard not just in America but around the globe. "The America I knew as Russia's foreign minster is gone," he wrote.
"The United States has often played a pivotal role in my political life, beginning 50 years ago when I was a student of international relations at a Moscow university," wrote Kozyrev. "At that time, Soviet propaganda was well-practiced at denouncing Richard Nixon for rejecting the Kremlin’s dogma that in politics, the ends justify the means. Mr. Nixon had argued during his 1960 presidential campaign that the American democratic system recognizes a standard of moral truth that allows the individual to say to government, 'Thus far may you go, but no farther.' If what Mr. Nixon said was true, many of us in the Soviet Union thought, then America is on the right side of history."
