George Conway Tweets Ominous Warning About Trump’s Mental State, ‘Lies, Half-Truths, Exaggerations, Distortions…’

George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, gave another scathing evaluation of Donald Trump’s mental state Saturday evening.

Trump criticized the New York Times on Twitter, accusing the outlet of false reporting on immigration to make him look bad.

He then jumped to the 2016 election, claiming the Times “had to beg” for forgiveness from subscribers for its campaign coverage, apologized to him, and then moved on to “even worse, really corrupt reporting.”

In response, Mother Jones journalist David Corn tweeted, “Once again, does he know he’s lying? Probably, right?” Conway replied to Corn, saying Trump’s mind is a mess.

“Lies, half-truths, exaggerations, distortions, misrcollections [sic], ignorant misconceptions, wishful thinking, things that randomly pop into his mind that he thinks sound good at any particular moment, random babble—all of [these] things swirl around in his head in an endless jumble,” Conway tweeted. “What’s true and what’s not—and what’s consistent with what he’s said previously and what’s not—really doesn’t matter to him. He finds no shame in being caught in a lie, so why should he distinguish truth from falsity in his own mind?”

Trump had criticized the Times for its reporting on his desire to have illegal immigrants sent to sanctuary cities — places that have policies preventing them from cooperating with federal officials on immigration.

Maggie Haberman, the White House correspondent for the New York Times, noted that despite the criticism, a follow-up tweet from Trump appeared to confirm the reporting.

Conway replied: “Anything involving the use of brain cells is not his strong suit.”

Conway also reacted to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un commenting on how he didn’t think Trump administration was prepared for his second summit with Trump in Vietnam earlier this year. “It’s amazing to think that we’ve reached a point where it’s difficult to say who has more credibility—the President of the United States or the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” Conway said.

Conway, a conservative lawyer who is a vocal critic of Trump, ensnared headlines last month when he repeatedly questioned the president’s mental health.

Responding to a frenzy of tweets from the president on a variety of subjects, ranging from the possibility of a federal investigation into “Saturday Night Live” to criticizing the late Sen. John McCain, Conway said, “His condition is getting worse.”

Conway then suggested Trump has narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder by tweeting out their respective pages from the fifth edition Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders by the American Psychiatric Association.
