Reports that Donald Trump’s niece walked in on POTUS having sex with his daughter, Ivanka Trump have been discredited. According to Snopes, that is factually wrong. Still, Mary Trump describes the infinitely screwed up Trump family including Ivanka in her newly-released book.
Mary Trump is free to speak after two years of being unable to speak or tweet, because Uncle Donald encouraged his only-surviving brother to sue her. The president’s niece wrote a tell-all book as a warning that not only is the commander-in-chief unqualified to lead the nation, he is actually very dangerous. As 139,413 people thus far have fallen to their deaths through his incompetence via the coronavirus pandemic, that is clearly true.
The Republican Senate is either stunned, cowardly, or frightened into inaction. Regardless, they are enabling the president and are not fit to serve. They are not fulfilling their oaths to protect us.
Republicans are not the only enablers, according to Dr. Trump. She described how controlling the president’s father was. He was the “chief enabler.” Yet, the president’s daughter-enabler Ivanka and his son-enabler Jared Kushner were right there, too.
When Ivanka set up office as a top adviser next to her father’s, people considered her a “steadying force.” Mary Trump disagreed:
‘I think she’s the one who disproves that on an almost-daily basis. She doesn’t do anything. She spouts bromides on social media, but either she tries to have an impact and fails, or just isn’t interested in having an impact. I can’t think of one thing she’s done to show that she’s moderate or a moderating influence.’
In an interview with The Washington Post, Dr. Trump said “chiefs of staff” were guilty, too:
‘[Trump’s] chiefs of staff who went along thinking that they could have some kind of influence, only to find that they didn’t [Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) [is]perfectly willing to put up with all sorts of egregious behavior to get his own agenda through.’
Mary Trump, 55, is a Ph.D. psychologist, so she is eminently qualified to speak about the president. Her book is Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man. It is her warning to the country. She said:
‘[US leaders] fell into a macro version of my incredibly dysfunctional family.’
In her Wednesday interview with The Washington Post, Mary Trump blames her grandfather Fred Trump, who ruled his family like an iron-fisted dictator. She describes her grandfather as a “sociopath” in her book, the person who created Donald Trump.
Dr. Trump told the interviewer that it was striking that the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. needed “to prop up his father:”
‘I’m not entirely sure why someone in Donald’s position, certainly at that time, needed propping up, but he got it anyway.’
Mary said that when POTUS did something way off-base, “her family laughed. That’s what we do:”
‘It’s sort of his way of making the story bigger, more interesting, but also kind of owning you if you don’t correct him, or he’s aware that you’re aware that he’s lying. And it’s a game and that’s how that night felt.’
Her book is well-timed:
‘I’d seen enough in the last few years to know that no one thing is going to make a bit of difference. This is going to be — using the expression loosely — death by a thousand lashes, right, and maybe in this case it’s going take a million lashes, so it’s more about adding to the record of egregious things that have happened and for which there has been no accountability.’
Dr. Trump added:
‘But more than that, I also felt a responsibility to make sure that people are as informed as possible when November comes, because I do not believe that was the case in 2016 at all.’
