White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway, known to be a frequent critic of United States President Donald Trump, claims the president has at least two diagnosable personality disorders.
George Conway, an attorney, posted the image of the cover of a mental disorder manual along with pages of it detailing two personality disorders on Twitter on Monday.
The pages present traits used to diagnose narcissistic and antisocial personality disorders, defining the first as “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy” and the second as “a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others.”
Questioned about her husband's comments by reporters outside the White House later on Monday, Kellyanne Conway disregarded the comments, saying that she didn't "share those concerns" regarding Trump.
This is not the first time the White House counselor's husband has made controversial remarks about the president's health.
George Conway suggested last week that a "serious inquiry" needs to be done analyzing the president's mental condition.
Earlier on Monday, Conway also said that it was time for “all Americans,” including the media, Congress and administration officials, to be “thinking serious” about “Trump’s mental condition and psychological state.”
Don’t assume that the things he says and does are part of a rational plan or strategy, because they seldom are. Consider them as a product of his pathologies, and they make perfect sense. https://t.co/k9rAK3tGFT— George Conway (@gtconway3d) March 18, 2019
The comments come after Trump sent more than 29 tweets over the weekend covering various issues from the New Zealand mosque shootings to criticizing a popular American comedy show for its alleged bias. The president's behavior drew criticism from other users on Twitter.
