George Conway: ‘Psychopath’ Trump Worse Than Nixon, Will Forever Be ‘Pariah’

On today’s Morning Joe, George Conway of the Lincoln Project compared President Trump’s impending departure from office unfavorably to that of Richard Nixon’s, who resigned in 1974 when facing virtually certain impeachment and removal from office. 

Conway claimed that, unlike President Trump, Nixon actually loved the country, and felt contrition and regret.

Conway predicted that, whereas there was some “sadness and sorrow” for Nixon, a “broken man,” in 1974, there will be none for President Trump, whom he twice called a “psychopath.” To the contrary, Conway said that Trump is “going to be a pariah for the rest of his life.”

Here’s some of Conway: 

And one of the things you’re not going to see is any sympathy for Donald Trump, the way there was some sympathy for Nixon when he left Washington as a broken man. This man, Donald Trump, because he’s a psychopath, a man who can gloat and watch in glee as the Capitol was ransacked and attacked and as people’s lives were threatened, this psychopath is never going to have — he’s going to be a pariah for the rest of his life. 

Note: being old enough to remember 1974 and the Nixon resignation, I don’t recall any of the “sadness and sorrow” for Nixon that Conway professed to have seen in 1974. Certainly not on the part of Democrats or the liberal media—which at the time composed almost the entirety of the media. I seem to remember more in the way of jubilation and high-fiving on the left. 

The Lincoln Project’s George Conway predicting that there will be no sympathy for President Trump when he leaves office, and that he is going to be a pariah for the rest of his life, was sponsored in part by USAA and Safelite.

Here’s the transcript.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Where are we right now with Donald Trump, in these final days?

GEORGE CONWAY: It reminds me a lot, frankly, of August 1974, after the Supreme Court ordered Nixon to produce the tapes and after the smoking gun tape came out. 

I mean, he’s — his support is collapsing. The way we saw Nixon’s support collapse in a matter of days back then. And I think, you know, there’s going to be — no matter whether or not he gets removed before his term of office ends or not, he’s leaving in complete disgrace, as Nixon did. 

But there’s going to be a big difference. Nixon, when — I don’t know if you remember, I mean, you were the same age as I, I remember watching what happened when Nixon left that day, August 9, 1974, watching all morning. And you saw some contrition. You saw some regret. You saw some sadness and sorrow for a man who actually did, unlike Donald Trump, love his country and want to do right by the country, even though he made some serious mistakes and broke some major laws. 

You don’t see that with Trump. And one of the things you’re not going to see is any sympathy for Donald Trump, the way there was some sympathy for Nixon when he left Washington as a broken man. This man, Donald Trump, because he’s a psychopath, a man who can gloat and watch in glee as the Capitol was ransacked and attacked and as people’s lives were threatened, this psychopath is never going to have — he’s going to be a pariah for the rest of his life.
