President Donald Trump’s younger brother emerged from a neurosciences intensive care unit to file a temporary restraining order to stop the publication of their niece’s tell-all family memoir.

Robert Trump spent at least 10 days at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where he was treated for a serious but undisclosed condition, and was discharged Sunday and filed the order Monday  through one of his older brother’s personal attorneys, reported The Daily Beast.

“Her attempt to sensationalize and mischaracterize our family relationship after all of these years for her own financial gain is both a travesty and injustice to the memory of my late brother, Fred, and our beloved parents,” Robert Trump said in a statement released 48 hours after his release. “I and the rest of my entire family are so proud of my wonderful brother, the president, and feel that Mary’s actions are truly a disgrace.”

Mount Sinai’s website says the hospital’s 16-bed NSICU specializes in “state of the art, compassionate care of patients who suffer from subarachnoid hemorrhage, acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, subdural hematomas, coma, tumors of the brain and spine, severe or prolonged seizures, neuro-infections, [and] spinal cord injury among others.”

Robert Trump did not respond to multiple requests for comment, and his attorney Charles Harder — one of the president’s personal attorneys and Hulk Hogan’s lawyer during the defamation case that effectively killed Gawker.

Attorneys for Mary Trump, the daughter of the eldest Trump brother, Fred Jr., are expected to file their response soon, which is expected to center on public comments by other signatories of the 2001 agreement — including Donald and Robert Trump and their sister Maryanne — which they could argue invalidated the pact.

“She’s not allowed to write a book,” the president said last week. “You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with — she’s got a brother, Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total… signed a nondisclosure.”

Trump’s delusional supporters will rage and scream no matter what — and Democrats should stop trying to make peace

Published

Even after the landslide defeat of Donald Trump, Republicans across the board continue to be terrified by Trump's disciples. Fear of the Red Hats has always been one of the primary reasons why the rest of Trump's party has refused to speak out against his ongoing horror show. It's not the only reason, but it's one of the more potent ones.

It's fascinating to observe how thoroughly they've painted themselves into a corner. While leading Republicans are in love with Trump's policies, not to mention the cover the Red Hats gave them to pass their agenda, they're privately disgusted by the president's total lack of personal restraint and constant self-sabotage.

On Tuesday, The New York Times podcast "The Daily" looked at how President Donald Trump has — unsuccessfully — tried to use the machinery of state and local government around the country to dismantle

"His team filed a litany of court cases in battleground states. In some, such as Georgia and Michigan, the president and his allies took an even more bullish approach, attempting to use their influence to bear down on election officials, even at the lowest levels of state government," said the report. "They have been relentless and tenacious in the efforts to transform the president’s fortunes. But the results have been immovable: Joe Biden is the president-elect."
