In Twitter Rant, Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Smacks ‘Pathological’ Trump

George Conway, a prominent conservative lawyer and the husband of Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway, launched into a powerful rant against the president’s habit of pointless, absurd, and delusional lies on Wednesday night.

He seemed to be inspired by the president’s false claim that the sentencing of Paul Manafort, his former campaign chair who is facing about 7.5 years in jail for crimes arising out of the Russia investigation, proved that there “no collusion.” In fact, Judge Amy Berman Jackson said at the sentencing that “collusion” hasn’t been addressed because the investigation is still ongoing. But Conway was also baffled at the president’s effort to lie about his recent slip of the tongue when he called Apple CEO Tim Cook “Tim Apple.”

“Have we ever seen this degree of brazen, pathological mendacity in American public life?” Conway wrote on Twitter.  “One day he makes a harmless slip of the tongue, something any mentally balanced person would laugh off.”

He continued:

He went on to argue that it’s a “pathological” and “self-defeating” form a lying because there’s no point to it. He’s not actually going to convince anyone, and it only further erodes his own credibility.

And of course, he noted, this is nothing new — there are dozens of these examples every week, if not each day.

“It’s nuts. It’s a disorder,” he said.

He concluded: “Whether or not impeachment is in order, a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind.”

George Conway has long been a vocal and fierce critic of the president, so the point of view he expressed was not surprising. But it remains a truly bizarre circumstance in Washington, D.C., that the husband of one of the president’s best-known and most cynical defenders has become such a vociferous and trenchant Trump critic.
