Anthony Scaramucci asserted on CNN that President Trump is a "sociopath" whose mental health is declining.
Scaramucci was asked about George Conway, husband to presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, writing in The Atlantic how Trump is unfit for office, in part, because of his mental health.
"Well, I read the entire piece. I’ve gotten close to George. I was impressed with the piece. It is a full blown treatise written like a litigator would write it, with all the facts fully articulated in the case. So it would be very, very hard to read that and have a counter treatise, if you will, or some kind of defense of the president at this point," Scaramucci said on Friday.
"But, I mean, you agree that the president is officially mentally ill from what George Conway lays out?" CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked.
"Yeah, I think the president is a sociopath. And I think he has levels of mental illness. But I also think he has levels of mental decline," he said.
Once a member of the Trump administration, for ten days, and a staunch defender of the president, Scaramucci has been outspoken in renouncing his support.
In Conway's piece about Trump's mental state, he writes, "You don’t need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, and you don’t need to be a mental-health professional to see that something’s very seriously off with Trump—particularly after nearly three years of watching his erratic and abnormal behavior in the White House."
He adds how, "No president in recent memory—and likely no president ever—has prompted more discussion about his mental stability and connection with reality."
