George Conway tweeted an entire section from a speech President Donald Trump gave in Grand Rapids, Michigan, last week in which he claimed that wind turbines cause cancer. He had no commentary to add, though it appears rather clear what he's saying: "This is who we have in charge."

"Hillary [Clinton] wanted to put up wind. Wind. If you―if you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations: Your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer," Trump began, and his speech became only more rambled from there.

It's clear Conway posted this because he believes it bolsters his argument that Trump is in mental decline, and he's certainly not alone in thinking that.

Conway has been a high profile critic of the president for quite some time but Trump had ignored his criticisms until March 20, when he attacked Conway in a tweet.

In his tweet, Trump referred to George Conway as “Mr. Kellyanne Conway,” and ridiculed him as “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Conway replied soon after and suggested Trump suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder, which many members of the psychiatric community have also suggested.

When asked about the feud by reporters, Trump said Conway is “a wack job, no question about it.”

“I think he’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife. Kellyannne is a wonderful woman, and I call him ‘Mr. Kellyanne,'” he added, reiterating his earlier insult.

Conway's wife, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, defended the president not long afterward.Trump, she said, is a “counterpuncher” who was bound to respond when George Conway asserted that he has a mental illness.

“He left it alone for months out of respect for me,” Conway told Politico in a telephone interview. “But you think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder? You think he should just take that sitting down?”

“Don’t play psychiatrist any more than George should be,” she added. “You’re not a psychiatrist and he’s not, respectfully.”

Kellyanne Conway told Politico that the president has always treated her respectfully.

“The president is obviously defending me,” she said. “He could privately say to me, ‘Honey you’re a distraction. We love you. You’ll always be a part of the family but go be with your kids. They need you. Go make a million dollars an hour. Go do that honey.’ It’s the opposite.”

Although she said she has spoken to Trump about his criticisms of her husband, she says she did so “in passing” and that the media has focused on the feud far more than they have. She did not comment on whether she wants Trump to stop tweeting against her husband. She also pushed back on questions whether Trump’s criticisms of her husband have impacted her job as presidential counselor.
