Donald Trump mocked with “psycho” billboard in own backyard

Former President Donald Trump is being derided as a “psycho” in a billboard that has recently been strategically placed near his Mar-a-Lago residence.

Conservative lawyer and Trump critic George Conway on Thursday touted the new billboard, which he paid for, in a series of posts to X, formerly Twitter. Conway said that the billboard had been placed on Interstate 95, which passes through Palm Beach, Florida, not far from Mar-a-Lago.

The blue billboard reads, in large white lettering, “Vote for Joe Not the Psycho.” “Joe” clearly refers to President Joe Biden, who is expected to face off against Trump in a November rematch. The message “Paid for by George Conway” also appears on the billboard in smaller white lettering under the main message.

Trump 2024 campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung denounced Conway for erecting the billboard in an emailed response to Newsweek’s request for comment on Thursday night, saying: “George Conway is a loser who clearly has some serious mental issues that he needs to address.”

“So, just for kicks, I put up a billboard a few miles south of Palm Beach on I-95 South, perfect for anyone happening to travel from Mar-a-Lago to Doral to, say, play golf. Right around Exit 64, I believe,” Conway wrote while sharing images of the billboard and a map in an X post on Thursday morning. “They’re going to send me better photos later.”

“Turn the sound up,” he added while sharing a video of the billboard in a subsequent post. “I think the chirping birds add a nice touch, don’t you?”

Conway, who was married to former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway for decades before the couple announced their divorce last year, explained during an interview with MSNBC‘s Chris Hayes on Thursday that he decided to pay for the billboard after speaking with the leader of the “Mad Dog” political action committee, which has placed similarly provocative anti-Trump billboards across the country.

“I’d been making some hats that say that [slogan], kind of like the MAGA hats, except blue and white,” Conway said. “This was the perfect location. And I hope he sees it. And, you know, I hope it amuses him as much as it amuses me.”

Conway also said that the Republican Party had become “a cult” filled with members who had “lost it” under Trump’s leadership, while discussing former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley‘s recent decision to announce that she will vote for Trump despite arguing that he was unfit for the presidency during her GOP presidential primary challenge.

“The person who has really lost it the most is Donald Trump, I mean he’s the crazy one,” Conway said. “As Nikki Haley pointed out when she was telling the truth for a couple of weeks in the spring … he’s mentally unstable and he’s getting worse … I mean this guy, he is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.”
