‘A hypernarcissistic, sociopathic clown’: George Conway shows no mercy in his latest Trump takedown
News & Politics

In the first round of Ukraine’s presidential race, comedian Volodymyr Zelensky was leading in the exit polls on Sunday. The New York Times’ Peter Baker mentioned the Ukrainian election on Monday morning, tweeting, “Think politics is a joke where you live? In Ukraine, a comedian who plays an accidental president on television leads the first round of voting for president.” And conservative attorney George Conway responded, “That’s no biggie. Over here, we have a hypernarcissistic, sociopathic clown with nuclear weapons.”

The “clown” Conway was obviously referring to was President Donald Trump. Like his wife, GOP strategist Kellyanne Conway, George Conway is a right-wing Republican. But while KC has been one of Trump’s staunchest allies, GC has been highly critical of the president.

GC’s anti-Trump tweet has been receiving both positive and negative responses. Twitter user @RonDufresne posted, “There are still tens of millions of Americans who think Trump is a savvy, successful businessman because he pretended to be one on a fake ‘reality’ TV show,” while @On_Politike asserted, “I would take an actual comedian over Trump anytime.” Another Trump critic, @AlexDesormiers, lamented that “at least” Zelensky “played a fictional president. That’s more experience than our clown had.”

@HayesPope wrote, “I think comedians actually have their fingers on what is true to be funny. Consider Al Franken. Much better than the orange ass clown with no sense of humor and an inflated sense of his own intellect.”

But @Titans2019 rose to Trump’s defense, posting, “Ah, Georgie is at it already. We can’t thank you enough for helping putting him in office again in 2020. We truly appreciate it.
