In a discussion with “The View,” President Donald Trump’s niece Mary walked through the psychological things she has concluded from observing the president and her father and aunt and uncle over the years.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked about why she thinks that the president is “terrified,” as she described in the book.

“I mean, I think he’s — again, I wouldn’t say it’s conscious, but very deep down, he’s terrified of being revealed not to be any of the things he claims to be or believes himself to be,” said Mary Trump. “You know, the best, the greatest, the smartest, the man who knows more than everybody else, the self-made man and the incredible success.”

Joy Behar asked about the details around the president’s childhood and some revelations about his upbringing in a very dysfunctional family. She asked if Ms. Trump sees the kind of sociopathy that she saw with Fred Trump Sr. among the president’s children.

“Honestly I can’t speak to that with any more authority than anybody else,” Ms. Trump said. “My cousins are much younger than I am. Donnie’s 12 years younger. Ivanka’s 16 years younger, et cetera. So, I didn’t even grow up with them. You know we overlapped a little bit, but we essentially belong to two different generations of grandchildren.”

She explained that the president’s mental concerns were likely stemming from a very young age.

“When Donald was around 2 1/2 years old, which is an extremely crucial period in a child’s development, my grandmother became very ill, and for about a year, was in a hospital and was essentially unavailable to her children,” Mary Trump continued. “And, you know, on some level, Donald for whom she was his main caretaker and source of love and human contact, probably felt abandoned. It certainly wasn’t her fault, but my grandfather who had no use for children did not step in, and did not provide Donald with the affection and caring and mirroring that he would have needed in order to survive after my grandmother’s absence.”

She said that at the same time, her father, Fred Trump Jr. was a little over 7-years-old at the time and “did not live up to their father’s expectations.”

“Fred Trump wanted his namesake, his heir apparent to be a killer, a tough guy, and my dad was a kind, sensitive man who couldn’t handle the criticism or the pressure,” she continued. “Donald learned a very deep lesson from that and it was essentially don’t be anything like Freddie. If you are anything like Freddie, you’re going to get dismantled and it’s not going to end well for you. So, Donald took on the persona of the killer, the tough guy, you know, the person who was willing to do anything to win because in our family, you know, my grandfather treated everything as a zero-sum game. if you weren’t winning, you were losing.”

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Published

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
