I have been waiting for Mary Trump to come forward and speak to the issue of her crazy uncle, post defeat. Unlike most peoples’ crazy uncles, Mary’s doesn’t just spoil the family fun on the holidays but has managed to pollute the entire culture with his particularly toxic brand of batshittery. She appeared on The […]
I’ll say one thing about waking up in America each day — it is not dull. We are forty days out from a presidential election and the niece of the incumbent candidate for reelection, Donald Trump, just sued him, and his siblings, for cheating her out of her inheritance. The first line of her lawsuit […]
Mary Trump has given another interview, this time with The Independent, and her predictions for what would happen should her Uncle Donald get reelected are frightening. I mean frightening. It will come as no shock that Trump’s reelection would single the end of democracy as we know it. The Independent: “I think if somehow Joe Biden […]
It’s a shame that Mary Trump’s book didn’t exist in 2015, although maybe it wouldn’t have mattered. People who read and who think started getting the true picture on Donald Trump early on. Those with low information, no information, at the same time began to respond to Trump’s visceral triggers and idiotic boasts, and they joined his cult. If America was divided before, it turned into a war zone with the advent of Trump. Mary Trump recently appeared on “The New Abnormal” podcast and here are a few excerpts from what she said about how Trump was raised. Raw Story: “It starts in the house,” she began. “When Donald was finally chosen to be the heir apparent when he was probably still in high school, he was protected at every turn by my grandfather from his incompetence, from his total inability to handle money and he never had to fend for himself and never had to admit when he was wrong.” “And then he was in my grandfather’s company, he was in the Trump Organization that was set up, I think, it was like sort of a sinecure honestly,” she continued. “And it wasn’t just my grandfather, it was all these other entities coming forward — the media, the banks to keep propping him up and protecting him. He’d fail up consistently until the Republican Party started doing the same thing.” “I imagine the White House to be the kind of place where, a person in his position, has every need attended to, every want attended to 24-hours a day and is never told ‘no’,” she stated. “Good presidents — I mean I don’t consider him the president — but Barack Obama or George W. Bush would seek it out sometimes: give me an honest critique of this. Donald would never do this, and if someone did question him, that person would be fired and humiliated.” “So he doesn’t have to do anything,” she told the hosts. “I can’t think of any way to be more institutionalized except to be in a psych ward.” You recall when Howard Hughes was in crack up mode in his penthouse at the end. He had the windows blacked out and he was a germophobe. He wouldn’t touch anything without “insulation.” If somebody handed him a newspaper, he would pick it up with a kleenex. Hughes’ money was his insulation, first and foremost, and it allowed him to get as neurotic as he got. He suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and it worsened as time went by. But his foibles were ignored, because he paid people to ignore them. The same thing is true with Donald Trump. His money and his coddled upbringing rendered him totally ineffectual. That’s why he can’t even close an umbrella. Money insulated him from reality. Now we need to insulate ourselves from him.
Mary Trump has her uncle's number. She describes him to a tee in her interview with Rachel Maddow. Watch below, the transcript follows.
You know I should be sittin’ in an air conditioned, office in a swivel chair. Talkin’ some trash to the secretary, sayin’ “Hey now Momma, come on over here” Jim Croce Working at the car wash blues I am just over 2/3 of the way through Mary Trump’s book, Too much and never enough, and I am enjoying it immensely. But the more I walk hand in hand with Mary through her Uncle Donald’s psyche and mental make up, the more I realize that it’s like playing hide-and-seek with Hannibal Lecter in Freddie Krueger’s house. This is one seriously disturbed gerbil. Donald Trump has spent his entire life desperately touting himself as a truly self made man. He loves to regale people with the fact that he took a measly $1 million loan from his father and turned it into a multi billion dollar real estate empire in Manhattan, Atlantic City, and elsewhere globally. This is, of course, pure, unadulterated bullshit. Fred Trump Sr was the sponge the built an empire, and his son Donald was the spigot that largely pissed it away. But if you take away the money and the business, when it comes to emotional and mental stability, Donald Trump truly is the original self made man, one of a kind. All five of the Trump siblings, Fred Jr, affectionately called Freddy, Maryanne, Donald, Elizabeth, and Robert, grew up in a dysfunctional, emotionally abusive household. Fred St was a true sociopath, concerned with only two things, Fred Sr, and his burgeoning empire. His children were a necessary evil in search of a replacement to extend the empire. Their mother, Mary, a woman with physical and emotional problems of her own, was at best an indifferent mother, except where the boys were concerned, where she was absentee. She felt that the sons were Fred St’s purview. Starved for parental affection and nurturing from their earliest days, all five children grew up with emotional scars. Donald learned young. For whatever reason, from the get go, Fred Sr decided that his heir apparent, Freddy, was lacking. In an effort to toughen him up, Fred Sr regularly belittled and castigated Freddy in front of his siblings. Desperate for his fathers approval, Freddy chose honesty, admitted his failures, and promised to be better, which only earned him another heaping helping of shit. By the time he was 6, Donald realized instinctively that a richly veined line of bullshit was far superior to the truth, since it saved you a chewing out. Which led to arrogance. By the time Donald was in grade school he had a near permanent sneer on his face. When his father chose not to rein that in, it led to bullying. Donald started bullying everybody, his siblings, his classmates, even his mother, whom he refused to even give the time of day when she attempted to discipline him. And when his father not only refused to discipline him, but gave tacit approval to his budding killer instinct, outright cruelty followed, and everything went to hell in a hand basket. With his father’s unspoken, but tacit approval, at the age of 10 Donald had never been successfully disciplined. And at the age of 10, Donald had the seminal moment of his life. Seated at the dinner table, with his siblings and parents around him, Donald […]
