‘Resign!’: George Conway Slam Dunks ‘Incompetent Amateur’ Trump Over Iran Blunder

George Conway slammed President Donald Trump on Friday, calling for him to resign after Trump confirmed via Twitter that the U.S. had been “cocked and loaded” to retaliate against Iran for the downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, but that he called off the mission at the last minute.

“Trump didn’t realize UNTIL TEN MINUTES BEFOREHAND that a planned airstrike would kill over a hundred people and would therefore be grossly disproportionate to the loss of a UAV?” Conway, lawyer and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, tweeted Friday. “To say this is amateur hour would defame amateurs.”

“Resign. If you didn’t know this until it was almost too late, you’re even more of an idiot than people think you are,” Conway tweeted in response to Trump. “Do the country and the world a favor. Go back to real estate, where the worst you can do is kill banks.”

Trump said that he called off the mission at the last minute after learning that 150 Iranians would die.

“We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone,” Trump tweeted.

Iranian officials said Friday that Trump warned them that an attack was imminent. The officials also said Friday that they were informed of the planned attack in a “short period” before it was initially scheduled to be carried out.

“In his message, Trump said he was against any war with Iran and wanted to talk to Tehran about various issues,” one Iranian official said.

Several news outlets reported late Thursday that Trump had ordered a strike overnight against Iran, but pulled back.

In response, Conway railed against Trump in a late-night tweet that he has since pinned to his Twitter page, slamming the commander-in-chief as an “erratic, unstable, incompetent, ignorant, intellectually lazy, narcissistic, and sociopathic man whose judgment no serious, intelligent person trusts.”
