George Conway fumes over glowing UK reports of Trump’s visit. Wait ’till he sees US reviews of his D-Day speech!

George Conway had a meltdown on social media after President Trump touted the “glowing reviews” from the British media on his state visit to London.

The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway unloaded on the president in a tweetstorm Thursday, slamming Trump and his claim of favorable press coverage by the British media on his trip to the United Kingdom.

“Your press coverage in the UK wasn’t all that great. Let me help you out,” Conway tweeted in response to Trump’s post that quoted Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Conway went on in an attempt to prove his point by unloading multiple examples of negative and unflattering stories covering Trump.

“And this is just a small sample, at least of the print coverage,” Conway declared after posting nearly three dozen stories. “So hard to say that the British coverage was more favorable to our Embarrassment-in-Chief.”

As Trump took part in ceremonies honoring the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landing in Normandy, Conway also took to Twitter to attack the president and the GOP “personality cult.” But former CNN pundit, Jeffrey Lord, quickly put him in his place.

Conway’s argument stemmed from the indisputable biased coverage of the mainstream media in the U.S. as the president and first lady visited the United Kingdom. The Hill’s Joe Concha told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday that while the British press and other European media outlets shared positive reports of Trump’s visit – with even Queen Elizabeth II reportedly telling him, “I hope you come to this country again soon,” – in the U.S., the mainstream media focused on protests and the “Trump Baby” balloons.

But the American media appeared to cave on Thursday as the left’s narrative could do little to misrepresent the stunning optics of Trump’s performance and his reception by those overseas, regardless of Conway’s take. Trump’s Normandy speech which commemorated the 75th anniversary of D-Day won over some of the president’s most vocal critics.

CNN’s White House reporter Jim Acosta praised Trump who “rose to the moment” in the most on-message moment” of his presidency.

“We were all wondering if he would veer from his remarks, go off of his script but he stayed on script, stayed on message and, I think, rose to the moment as he was talking about the men gathered behind them he described them as being among the greatest Americans who have ever lived,” Acosta said on CNN Thursday.

“That could not be more of a fact check true if we could have found one. It was really one of those moments that Donald Trump needed to rise to in order to, I think, walk away from the cemetery, walk away from this hallowed ground and have people back at home saying, you know what, no matter what I think about the current president of the United States, he said the right thing at Normandy,” Acosta added.

“He did the right thing at Normandy. He really hit all of the right moments in that speech when he was paying respect to these heroes who were still with us,” he said.

And though Acosta needed to make a point of claiming the event was delayed because Trump decided to speak with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, that negative spin was soon doused with cold water as it became clear that French President Emmanuel Macron was even later getting to the ceremony.

But even Acosta realized he had to get out of his own way.

“But honestly, you have to put that to the side and recognize this was just a really captivating, stirring remarkable moment for the entire world to witness. Politics was just put aside, washed aside as we remember the bravery and courage of these men today,” he said.

Even vocal Trump critic Joe Scarborough conceded that Trump delivered the “strongest speech of his presidency.”

“There was one especially beautiful moment and I loved the thought because – any World War II documentary you see, any Vietnam documentary you see, when the interviewer starts talking about them being heroes, they will tear up and they will say ‘the heroes were the ones that never came back.’ Well, President Trump said that that’s what these heroes were saying. The heroes were the ones buried here behind us. Yet, he went on to say — to talk about the remarkable life that was created by this generation,” the MSNBC host said.

Tom Brokaw agreed, saying that Trump “got it right,” and that the speech was “well written,” and “well delivered.”
