"He’s a practical joke that got out of hand"
Conservative attorney George Conway says President Donald Trump’s mind is so jumbled with lies, distortions and fantasies that even he can’t tell them apart when he speaks.
“But they just come out without regard to the consequences,” Conway said in an exclusive clip from the new film “Unfit: The Psychology of Donald Trump.”
Conway said some voters found the unfiltered attitude refreshing.
“He actually believes some of this insanity that comes out of his mouth. Not only is there no filter, there’s nothing up here,” Conway said as he gestured to his head. “There’s nothing up here that represents any version of reality or sensible thought.”
“Being president, you actually have to play multi-dimensional chess,” Conway said in the clip. “He’s not even playing tic-tac-toe. He’s a practical joke that got out of hand.”
Conway is the husband of former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and has been an often-cited critic of the president despite his wife’s ties to the administration.
Conway was also one of the founders of The Lincoln Project, a group of conservative Trump critics that has taken out TV ads and created viral videos against the president, much to his ire.
Kellyanne Conway and George Conway stepped back from public life last month “to devote more time to family matters.” The film was made prior to that decision.
“Unfit,” directed by Dan Partland, was made in consultation with the Duty to Warn Coalition, an organization of mental health professionals and others who say Trump is unfit to be president.
The film is currently available via video on-demand and streaming services.
The supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died of pancreatic cancer, the court said Friday. She was 87. Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the court in history and became a liberal icon for her sharp questioning of witnesses and intellectually rigorous defenses of civil liberties, reproductive rights, first amendment rights and equal protections under the law.
Two political figures claiming to represent Donald Trump offered Julian Assange a “win-win” deal to avoid extradition to the US and indictment, a London court has heard. Under the proposed deal, outlined by Assange’s barrister Jennifer Robinson, the WikiLeaks founder would be offered a pardon if he disclosed who leaked Democratic party emails to his site, in order to help clear up allegations they had been supplied by Russian hackers to help Trump’s election in 2016.
First-person accounts of a tense meeting at the White House in late March suggest that President Trump’s son-in-law resisted taking federal action to alleviate shortages and help Democratic-led New York. Instead, he enlisted a former roommate to lead a Consultant State to take on the Deep State, with results ranging from the Eastman Kodak fiasco to a mysterious deal to send ventilators to Russia.
President Trump’s luxury properties have charged the U.S. government more than $1.1 million in private transactions since Trump took office — including for room rentals at his Bedminster, N.J., club this spring while it was closed for the coronavirus pandemic, new documents show. The documents, including receipts and invoices from Trump’s businesses, were released by the Secret Service after The Washington Post filed a public-records lawsuit.
