Prominent Republican attorney George Conway ridiculed President Donald Trump on Saturday over a new book that is rattling the White House.
The book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America, was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.
The book will be officially released on Tuesday, but it appears that Conway received an advance copy.
"So I’m reading a certain book. And ... oh my. I’ve never read anything like it. I’m almost at a loss for words. Almost," Conway tweeted. "Let’s just say, someone is not A Very Stable Genius."

Less than half-an-hour later, Trump offered his own review of the book, which he bashed as being "demeaning and belittling."
Conway replied to Trump's tweet, saying the book "is a must-read!"

But Conway didn't stop there, we went on to mock Trump.
Conway said it was "sad" that Trump was inadvertently hyping the book.
... and they’ll pretty quickly figure out it’s this one! Sad! https://t.co/3r6LDSSDQh— George Conway (@George Conway) 1579390343.0
He went on to retweet CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, who agreed Trump's tweet would give the book more attention.

Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, urged his 890,000 Twitter followers to purchase the book.
