Energy Secretary Rick Perry said he sought out Rudy Giuliani this spring at President Trump’s direction to address Mr. Trump’s concerns about Ukrainian corruption, a sign of how closely the president’s personal lawyer worked with the administration...
George ConwayBut *now*, @realDonaldTrump, you’re going to know how it feels—because you’re now the one who’s being thrown under the bus.
Rick Perry is only the start. Everyone else is going to follow, if they haven’t started already. 2/2
The president’s decision to bulk up his legal team with former Rep. Trey Gowdy amid a widening impeachment inquiry is drawing criticism from one of his high-profile supporters.
George Conway“Victoria Toensing, a veteran Washington lawyer who has been working with Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, expressed concern and disbelief that [Trey Gowdy] would be coming onboard.
“‘Trey Gowdy doesn’t know s***,’ she said.”
We're different but we agree: No president has placed America in more peril for less reason than Trump. Refusing to confront him only emboldens him.
George Conway“The exchange with the Ukrainian president, in which Trump subjugated the national interest and U.S. national security to his own political impulses, is a strikingly obvious and impeachable abuse of power.”
Donald Trump’s narcissism makes it impossible for him to carry out the duties of the presidency in the way the Constitution requires.
George Conway“It would take entire books to catalog all of Trump’s behavioral abnormalities and try to explain them—some of which have already been written. But when you line up what the Framers expected of a president with all that we know about Donald Trump, ....”
George Conway“Given that Trump displays the extreme behavioral characteristics of a pathological narcissist, a sociopath, or a malignant narcissist—take your pick—it’s clear that he can’t.”
George Conway“The question is whether [Trump] can possibly act as a public fiduciary for the nation’s highest public trust. Given that [he] displays ... characteristics of a pathological narcissist, a sociopath, or a malignant narcissist ... it’s clear that he can’t.”
The president reportedly sought the help of a foreign government against Joe Biden.
George Conway“If this in itself is not impeachable, then the concept has no meaning. Trump’s grubby commandeering of the presidency’s fearsome ... powers in foreign policy for his own ends is a gross abuse of power and an affront ... to our constitutional order ....”
His dismissal by tweet came after an unusually long prelude of disrespect, both by President Trump and by favored allies.
George Conway“This is how you fire the pool boy. ... This is how you fire someone who has strong opinions, and who has gradually made clear that one of those opinions is that you are a complete imbecile.”
Trump is "deteriorating in plain sight," one Republican strategist who's in frequent contact with the White House told Insider on Friday.
George Conway“Asked why the president was obsessed with Alabama instead of the states that would actually be affected by the storm, the strategist said, ‘you should ask a psychiatrist about that; I'm not sure I'm qualified to comment.’”
The president thinks the balancing of the nation’s books is going to, ultimately, be a future president’s problem.
George ConwayBut hey, if you’re concerned that this may upset @realDonaldTrump, don’t you worry. He knows he won’t be here when the bill comes due.
George ConwayAnd he really doesn’t care about the national debt.
“[O]fficials offered Trump charts ... showing a “hockey stick” spike in the national debt ... after his possible second term in office.
“‘Yeah, but I won’t be here,’ the president bluntly said ....”
(Montel) Greenland, among the windiest places on the planet, has the potential to become a super grid by shipping wind power to Europe and the US, an energy and artificial intelligence academic told Belgian daily L'Echo on Friday.
George ConwaySomeone’s not gonna want to hear this, but one of the great things about Greenland is that it’s the perfect place to build massive wind farms.
If the president did not originally inspire the gunman, he has brought into the mainstream polarizing ideas and people once consigned to the fringes of American society.
George Conway“Mr. Trump ... complains that unauthorized migrants ‘pour into and infest’ the United States [and] at one point even said he would order troops to open fire on migrants who throw stones. ...
‘Shoot them!’ one man shouted. ... Mr. Trump smiled.”
