Whenever I’m tempted to feel sorry for myself for having sundry druncles and Trumpy uncles (Venn diagram not a perfect circle, but close) mulching up the family tree, I pity folks like Mary Trump instead. The daughter of Fred Jr., Mary has a much worse uncle than any of us: the beast himself.
According to The Daily Beast (which has lived up to its name for three years and change), Mary Trump was The New York Times’ secret source for its explosive 2018 story that confirmed suspicions that the Trumps are multi-generational tax cheats. That story didn’t get nearly enough traction with the public, IMO. I don’t remember exactly what brand of fuckery was afoot in October 2018 when the story broke, but like the innumerable other Trump scandals that would have brought down any normal president, the Trumps’ theft of hundreds of millions of dollars just went by the boards like a common tan suit.
Anyhoo, Mary Trump is writing a tell-all that is scheduled to come out in August, right before the Republican National Convention and Virus Swap Meet.
