I Believe Mary Trump. Here’s Why.


Yeah, yeah, we did it. So what? We pre-ordered Marty Trump’s book last night. Nota Bene I have steadfastly refused to pick up a single one of the 26,289 books so far on Trump, his campaign, or his presidency. Why should I? I have spent the last 5 years in his hip pocket, paying close attention, mostly so I could sit down and tell youze guyz all about it. Why do I want to read about that shit in my spare time?

But Mary’s book has an attraction that I’m just totally unable to resist. Not only is Mary the first actual family member to write about Trump, rather than a friend or employee, but she is also a certified, practicing clinical psychologist. She has spent her entire life observing and interacting with Trump, and as a psychologist, is actually qualified to make diagnoses of Trump based on his behavior and actions. And she does, long sections that were read last night were written dispassionately, describing things, and then providing a possible diagnosis. That kind of thing gets to me.

Here’s a perfect example. One of the more controversial sniglets has to do with Trump’s college days. After high school, Trump attended Fordham University, but according to Mary, to increase his influence in his fathers company after graduation, he decided that only a diploma from the University of Pennsylvania would do, If only for bragging rights. Trump already had his sister Mary Anne doing his homework for him, but worried about his GPA, he hired a fellow student who was a whiz at tests to take his SAT’s for him to ensure he got into Wharton.

This revelation floored me. Because to me it meant that, all the way back at the age of 18 or 19, Donald Trump had already chosen his path in life. And that path was being a lazy, useless moron, built entirely for image rather than substance. Any college degree that Trump obtained wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on, since he absorbed absolutely none of the information that was being imparted to him, but the fact that he paid for a degree from Wharton showed that he already knew the secret to starting higher up was a fancy college name. Fit that in with what we see every day.

Of course, Trump and the White House are furiously disputing that claim in the book, along with pretty much everything else she writes. Good luck with that message, it would be easier if we didn’t have examples every day that tend to prove that what she is writing is true. But there’s actually a very practical reason why it would not be a good idea for Mary Trump to lie about this stuff. It could be disastrous for her.

Trump, his sister Mary Anne, and his brother Robert all went to court and sued to try to stop Mary from publishing the book. Their reason was that she was violating a, what else with Trump?, non disclosure agreement she and her brother signed to settle a lawsuit regarding Fred Sr’s estate. While the judge ruled that publication could go forward, he has yet to rule on whether or not Mary is actually bound by the NDA.

Mary’s reasoning is simple. She feels free to publish because the NDA is null and void, since the lawsuit settlement is based on fraudulent activity. Through the business and tax records that she had legal access to, and provided to The New York Times, Mary learned that in the year prior to the probate proceedings, Trump, Maryann, and Robert transferred the vast majority of Fred Trump Sr’s wealth to hidey holes that they controlled, leaving only a Trump estate to be probated. These actions, she claims, deprived her and her brother of millions of dollars they were legally entitled to. Since the settlement was fraudulent, the NDA cannot be enforced.

But there’s much better, more personal reason not to lie about this stuff. Think of your own life, and your own feelings. If somebody you know, especially somebody close to you screws you over, you’re going to want some of your own back. And you’re going to want it to hurt. Bad. Bullshitting doesn’t do that, mostly because you know it’s not true, and it cheapens the revenge. Besides, if the lie is caught and called out, it makes it look like you had no legitimate beef in the first place. Ah, but the truth now, that’s a different story. The truth, especially if graphically proven, chills the revenge nicely. It not only makes your point, but it also ruins both their reputation as well as their egos. Much more satisfying all around.

And that’s why I believe Mary Trump. Her own name and reputation is on the line here, and knowing how seriously the media digs into everything involving her uncle, lying would be a dangerous proposition. I believe the book is due to drop into my kindle next Tuesday, and I plan on devouring it whole. Once I’m done, I’ll write you guys a nice little book report. Until then, keep those cards and letters coming, and write if you find work!

To know the future, look to the past.before the insanity of the 2020 election, relive the insanity of the 2016 GOP primary campaign, and the general election, to see how we got to where we are. Copies of President Evil, and the sequel, President Evil II, A Clodwork Orange are available as e-books on Amazon, at the links above. Catch up before the upcoming release of the third book in the trilogy, President Evil III: All The Presidents Fen

I’m looking forward to your report.

Tight as money is I might wind up buying this one too, even though by then I’ll surely know most, if not all the really good stuff. Btw I like how you correctly point out Trump’s degree is from the University of Pennsylvania. Even in reporting the past few days supposedly knowledgeable “journalists” and talking heads (even on MSNBC) refer to his having graduated from Wharton. Undergrads ad Penn who major in business do take courses taught by Wharton instructors, but the Wharton School of Business degree is an MBA. Only GRADUATE students are actual graduates of Wharton. Undergrads are… Read more »

OH! He didn’t go to Wharton? I was mistaken, I thought he had an MBA from Wharton. Did Ivanka go to Wharton?

I suppose it could be argued as it’s a matter of how you look at it. Wharton is part of the University of Pennsylvania. As I said undergraduates studying business take courses at Wharton and can receive a Bachelor of Science in Economics. I’ve seen reporting that this is the degree Trump has, and also that his degree is in Real Estate which might not be as weird as it sounds. Many universities and their subsidiary colleges allow for creation of specialized degrees. But Trump’s only degree is a Bachelor’s. When talking about Wharton, and even from Wharton itself the… Read more »

Ivanka also attended UPenn as an undergraduate and doesn’t have an MBA.


I ordered the book as well, but it’s back-ordered until late August. Thanks for the snippets, Murph; as much as I despise Drumpf, I’m looking forward to reading it.

I also ordered Bandy Lee’s updated book, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.” There’s so much wrong with Drumpf, and I’d really like to see what the experts have concluded.

But you’re portraying that her motive for writing this book is revenge. That’s not favorable to her, and it pretty much ruins it for me. I don’t look kindly on revenge. I’d like to think she wrote it out of a need to inform the public.

dana fairfield

Her spokesperson says the motivation was duty to report, not revenge.


Um, Annette, to put things in a bit perspective, I’ll paraphrase that old saying made famous as a song by the Persuaders: There’s a thin line between justice and revenge.


Excellent advice. We will see if they heed it, or if any of this occurs to them, since I don’t know if they read your blog………..livejumps.com
