Attorney George Conway—a Washington, D.C.-based attorney who is married to White House spokesperson Kellyanne Conway, but doesn’t share her affection for the POTUS—thinks he knows how to trigger President Donald Trump’s “final meltdown,” according to a report by The Huffington Post.
He shared the strategy with his Twitter followers on July 16, in the hope that the eventual 2020 Democratic presidential nominee would adopt it to defeat Trump in the election.
Conway posted his idea in response to another tweeter, @HoarseWhisperer, who suggested that Democrats “”should be pushing Trump’s buttons every single day. Letting him build up a head of steam is a complete failure. He is an insanely insecure man. Prominent Dems should be poking at his insecurities every single day.”
Conway agreed, and said “the opposing nominee’s campaign should consult a team of psychologists and psychiatrists to figure out how to do precisely this. It shouldn’t be hard to trigger the final meltdown.”
He suggested that Trump had suffered from untreated dyslexia as a child, because “dyslexic children are often impulse-ridden and easily unsettled ….Emotional consequences …may involve lying, exaggerating, and feigning certainly about things they do not comprehend.”
Thus, he pointed out, Trump’s buttons might truly be easy to push, revealing his emotional instability to the American electorate.
While his wife remains beloved in the White House, George Conway, the HuffPost said, has been a persistent thorn in Trump’s side. George Conway continually has feuded with Trump online. Last month, he urged Republicans to take a new allegation of rape that advice columnist E. Jean Carroll leveled against the president seriously. Trump denies the accusation.
