"He lies because he’s a sociopath, a con man—to deceive others," George Conway tweeted. 

"But he also lies because he’s a pathological narcissist—to deceive himself, to protect his fragile ego from narcissistic injury," he added.

The post was part of a series of tweets that Conway made concerning the president. Several of his subsequent tweets played on his "sociopath" comment.

Trump, Conway asserted, "isn't up to the task" of being president and "acts incompetently, and irrationally."

In another tweet, Conway brought up Trump's press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö earlier this month, describing it as a "meltdown."

This isn't the first time Conway has attacked the president's mental health.

In March, through another series of tweets, he suggested that Trump had at least two diagnosable personality disorders.

According to Federal Election Commission filings, Conway donated $5,600 to GOP primary long shot former Rep. Joe WalshJoe WalshSunday shows preview: Protests continue over shooting of Blake; coronavirus legislation talks remain at impasse Republicans officially renominate Trump for president Tucker Carlson responds to guest correcting pronunciation of Kamala Harris's name: 'So what?'
