George Conway is seriously concerned about Donald Trump’s mental health.

In a long, viral tweetstorm Wednesday, the lawyer and vocal Trump critic — despite being married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway— said of his wife’s boss that a “serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind.”

In the series of tweets to his 369,000 followers — apparently prompted by Trump incorrectly stating Wednesday that District Judge Amy Berman Jackson definitively proved there was “no collusion” in his campaign during her sentencing of former campaign manager Paul Manafort — Conway asked: “Have we ever seen this degree of brazen, pathological mendacity in American public life?”

In fact, Judge Berman made a point of saying “the ‘no collusion’ refrain that runs through the entire defense memorandum is unrelated to matters at hand. The ‘no collusion’ mantra is simply a non sequitur.”

Conway also criticized Trump previously saying he referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as “Tim Apple” to save time, rather than admitting he made a mistake. And before Trump defended the blunder as a time-saving strategy, he claimed he actually did say Cook — just too quietly for anyone to hear.

“This man who recently gave an incoherent, rambling two-hour-plus speech, this man not known for economy of words? Another absurd, crazy lie. Pathological,” Conway tweeted.

In December, President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, said in a tweet that Conway “disrespects” his wife, saying Kellyanne is a “great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”

The attorney has repeatedly called Trump a liar and slammed him as a “laughingstock” earlier this year. President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called Conway a “bad husband.”
