Attorney George Conway, the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, coined a new nickname for President Donald Trump, referring to him as "Deranged Donald" in response to the news that Trump had made a baseless accusation against the British, accusing them of spying soon after he accepted an invitation for a state visit from Queen Elizabeth II.

"Deranged Donald is [at] back at it again," he wrote, adding that Trump's behavior is so erratic that stories like this one don't make it to "the top of the news... lost beneath all of the other deranged things Deranged Donald does."

Conway took a couple more shots, saying that "Deranged Donald has this neat job" that grants him access to "top secret information" that he ignores if it doesn't flatter him. He further added that the president doesn't get his information from our intelligence agencies at all, but from Fox News, which he watches and tweets about on a regular basis.

The new nickname became social media's latest viral hashtag.

Conway has been one of the president's most vocal detractors in recent weeks, particularly in light of the Mueller report's release.

Earlier this week, Conway tweeted that Trump's obstruction of the Mueller investigation was “worse than Nixon,” because, as he wrote in an April 18 column for The Washington Post, “The investigation that Trump tried to interfere with here, to protect his own personal interests, was in significant part an investigation of how a hostile foreign power interfered with our democracy.”

Conway went on to explain that in putting his own “vanity and self-interest above that of the nation and people whose laws and Constitution he swore to faithfully execute and uphold,” Trump committed acts that warrant impeachment.

“If that’s not impeachable, nothing is,” he wrote.

The Mueller report has been described as a road map to impeachment, and it notes that while Trump’s “efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests,” that doesn’t shield him from formal charges.

“The Constitution does not categorically and permanently immunize a president for obstructing justice,” Mueller wrote, adding:

“The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the president’s corrupt exercise of the powers of the office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”

Kellyanne Conway, by contrast, criticized House Democrats' push for impeachment this week, saying in response to subpoenas issued by Democrats for the unredacted Mueller report that the president made it “very clear that there’s really no reason to comply with all these requests when we have the Mueller investigation."


On Tuesday during a press gaggle, President Donald Trump responded to comments made by his Attorney General William Barr.

Barr told ABC News that Trump's incessant tweeting made his job harder.

While he and his new wife, Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary Katie Waldman, enjoyed a day of blissful matrimony, others called attention to the numerous immigrants and refugees whose lives have been ruined by policies Stephen Miller helped build.

Nearly 90 percent of the United States Congress is Christian, and every single President in U.S. history has been Christian, while Christians only make up 65 percent of Americans.

That's not enough representations for the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, a Conservative Christian group dedicated to influencing America's politicians to favor Christianity over constituents.

President Donald Trump and those who work for him routinely tout the United States' low unemployment numbers and economic prosperity as evidence that his term as President so far has been a success.

They'll frequently deploy some iteration of the phrase "lowest unemployment ever," while reminders that a consistent downward trend in unemployment began years ago—under former President Barack Obama.

The NBPC—a union organization not part of the federal agency—is "the exclusive representative of approximately 18,000 Border Patrol Agents and support personnel assigned to the U.S. Border Patrol."
