‘Abject failure’: George Conway gives ‘narcissist’ Trump a brutal reality check on his coronavirus response

Published

on

There’s an emerging narrative in the media that suggests President Trump is finally taking the coronavirus “seriously” and that his tone has changed in recent press conferences. But according to George Conway this Wednesday, people shouldn’t be fooled.

In his latest column for The Washington Post, Conway argues that Trump’s shift in tone can’t conceal the fact that he has “shown himself to be wholly inept at dealing with the pandemic.”

“It doesn’t change the fact that he puts himself first, always. It doesn’t alter the fact that, as he once told top aides, he thinks of ‘each presidential day as an episode in a television show in which he vanquishes rivals,'” he writes. “It doesn’t dissolve Trump’s compulsion to lie, even when truth would serve him best. It doesn’t diminish his incompetence, ignorance or propensity for administrative chaos.”

Conway referred to Trump’s recent comments where he refused to take any responsibility for the spread of the outbreak, and then rated his performance on dealing with the crisis a “10,” as well his lashing out at Democratic governors and the pandemic continued to unfold, saying they’re signals that his ego and penchant for lying will still get in the way of real leadership.

“Ever the blameless narcissist, Trump always insists that the buck stops wherever convenient — for him, personally,” he wrote. “For Trump, success always has a single father — himself. Failure has a hundred — everyone and anyone else.”

On Friday, the conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump — this time using the criticism of his former Defense Secretary James Mattis, and comparing and contrasting their leadership ability.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."

Maxine Waters calls for Trump’s Cabinet initiate the 25th Amendment ‘before this would-be dictator takes us all down’

Published

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Donald Trump to be removed from office on Friday.

"Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th Amendment to remove him from office?" Waters asked on the president's favorite social networking platform.

The 25th Amendment would allow Vice President Mike Pence to ascend to the presidency if a majority of Trump's cabinet declares "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

"Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!" Waters warned.
