George Conway Calls on Trump to ‘Resign and Seek Psychological Treatment’

George Conway, the husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, went off on Donald Trump in a series of stunning tweets Sunday morning deeming the president “mentally unwell” and calling on him to resign from office.

Conway, a frequent and harsh Trump critic, responded to a tweet in which the president defended his attacks on the media.

“You’re not ‘presidential’ at all, period. You’re mentally unwell,” Conway wrote. “You engage in bizarre, irrational, self-defeating behavior, which prompts criticism of you, which triggers more bizarre, irrational, self-defeating behavior. You would have been fired from any other job by now.”

“Do yourself and the country a favor,” Conway continued in another tweet. “Resign and seek the psychological treatment you so obviously need.”

Conway proceeded to link to “two great books discussing your myriad psychiatric problems.”

“And if anyone has any doubt about the question, ask yourself this: If, say, a CEO of a major publicly-held company engaged in conduct remotely similar to what we’ve seen of Donald J. Trump over the past 2-1/2 years, what would happen?” Conway asked. “How long would she or he last in the job?”
