Mary Trump, the daughter of Donald’s brother Fred has written a tell all book that will be released this summer right before the Republican National Convention.
The book’s title is Too Much And Never Enough and supposedly will contain some “harrowing and salacious” stories. It turns out that Mary was the one who was the secret source of Donald’s father Fred’s tax returns to the NY Times for their groundbreaking expose on how Trump and his father used fraudulent tax schemes and how Donald screwed the rest of the family and pocketed $400 million from his father’s estate.
Most of the speculation about the source of the documents was that it was from accountants but I do remember some thinking it might be from other family members who had been screwed over.
From the Daily Beast write-up:
Details of the book are being closely guarded by its publisher, Simon & Schuster, but The Daily Beast has learned that Mary plans to include conversations with Trump’s sister, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry, that contain intimate and damning thoughts about her brother, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The bad blood between President Trump and his niece dates back 20 years to the fight over Fred Trump Sr.’s will and the actions he took to cut off financial and medical support for her brother’s ill child. Now that feud is about to spill out into the public eye during a critical election year, with the president struggling to shore up his plummeting popularity.
“My aunt and uncles should be ashamed of themselves,” Mary Trump said about Donald Trump and his siblings in that rare 2000 interview, which provides a preview of the tone of her book. “I'm sure they are not.”
Even though I expect this book may contain some pretty damning things that would seriously damage any other candidate, I doubt it does much to hurt Trump with any voters. His ugliness and inhumanity is already well known and documented for all to see. I think it will provide a few days of distraction to him and it will likely tick him off to no end having the family’s dirty laundry aired which at least should be entertaining. He deserves all the derision and nastiness that life has to offer in his remaining days.
