President erupts at George Conway for 'Mourning in America' video, about the 'deadly virus Trump ignored' - 2020-05-05
George T. Conway III, prominent attorney and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been trying with only modest success to provoke President Trump's Twitter wrath for the better part of his presidency. He finally succeeded close to 1 a.m. Tuesday.
What set Trump off was a video, sponsored by the Lincoln Project, the anti-Trump super PAC that Conway co-founded with other Republicans and former ones. The video, released Monday, lays responsibility squarely at Trump's doorstep for the severity of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, including the deaths and economic damage.
Tens of thousands nationwide have died of the "deadly virus Trump ignored," says the video, called "Mourning in America," inspired by President Ronald Reagan's famous "Morning in America" 1984 campaign ad.
