Calling Donald Trump out for his lies isn't something new, and discouragingly enough, it's also not new to question his mental health. What's interesting in this case is who it's coming from and the call to action being requested.

 

George Conway is an attorney and also the outspoken husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. He has spoken up against Trump in the past, but this time he seems to be taking it a step further than what he would normally do. 

Conway is calling out the president for his frequent obvious lies. Media often does the same. In fact, there are some who keep track of how many lies and misinformation he's been responsible for so far. That number is in the 1000s. The daily total is just as stunning.

 

Because of Trump's lies, George Conway is calling for a "serious inquiry" into his "condition of mind," pointing to his "brazen, pathological mendacity" and for doing so over issues that aren't even that important. 

"Even his donors and supporters wonder, 'What is wrong with him?' " Conway tweeted. "Why would he feel compelled to tell such an absurd lie?"

 

One of the lies Conway is calling out is Trump's suggestion that District Judge Amy Berman Jackson found "no collusion" when she sentenced his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Wednesday to 43 months. 

"I can only tell you one thing: again that was proven today, no collusion," he said, repeating "no collusion" numerous times.

 

But Jackson didn't say that. She did not indicate that she found no collusion in Manafort's trial. He wasn't even on trial for collusion. In her courtroom he was being sentenced for conspiracy and witness tampering. 

"The 'no conclusion' mantra is simply a non sequitur," said Jackson when sentencing Manafort, as his attorneys were defending him by saying collusion wasn't proven. She added that it wasn't a part of Manafort's case and that the special counsel's collusion case is "still ongoing."

 

Conway also called out Trump's storytelling of why he called Apple CEO Tim Cook "Tim Apple" during a meeting at the White House last week. It was something everyone noticed and poked fun of nearly immediately. 

After, Trump told GOP donors that he had said, "Tim Cook, Apple," but that he said "Cook" so fast that no one heard him say it.

 

Once that lie was proven wrong by a recording, Trump then said he actually had skipped the word to save him time, which is, of course, ridiculous, as it changed a four-syllable phrase to three. He saved one syllable. 

"A ridiculous assertion, of course," wrote Conway. "He really said, 'Tim Apple' instead of 'Tim Cook of Apple' to save a third of a second." He added that recently Trump gave a "rambling two-hour-plus speech" and isn't known for his "economy of words."

 

Conway mentioned that "mentally balanced" people would laugh off that slip of the tongue, but Trump chose to lie about it.  

"But these are just two of ... how many examples? Hundreds? Thousands? Is it possible to count?" he asked. "At any level of government in this country, in any party, have we ever seen anything like this? It's beyond politics. It's nuts. It's a disorder."

 

He then made a request of possibly the House, as they are the ones who have been launching investigation after investigation of Trump, although Speaker Nancy Pelosi said this week she doesn't believe Trump is worth an impeachment process. 

"Whether or not impeachment is in order," suggested Conway, "a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man's condition of mind."
