President Donald Trump’s niece Mary on Thursday filed a 70-page legal brief responding to efforts to block her forthcoming tell-all book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.

“The legal fight over a tell-all by President Trump’s niece took another turn on Thursday when her lawyers filed papers to remove a temporary restraining order, arguing that the confidentiality agreement she signed 19 years ago was an unenforceable fraud,” The Daily Beast reported Thursday. “In an affidavit, Mary Trump said that when she inked the agreement, ending a dispute over her grandfather’s will, she believed the asset amounts in it were accurate, but learned they were bogus from a New York Times expose.”

The terms “fraud” or “fraudulently” show up 15 times in the brief (PDF).

“In their petition to the New York Supreme Court, Mary Trump’s lawyers wrote that it’s clear the president and his family ‘do not want the American public to hear’ their client’s story,” The Beast noted. “‘“But the First Amendment, ordinary rules of contract law, and bedrock equitable principles defeat Plaintiff’s extraordinary and unwarranted request for injunctive relief,’ they wrote.”

The book is due to hit bookshelves on July 28th. It is already at the top of Amazon’s best-seller’s list.

On his new political show on YouTube, commentator Keith Olbermann ripped into President Donald Trump for his performance during the final presidential debate. Olbermann said that Trump "ran out of bullsh*t" as he tried to attack his rival Joe Biden.

"I don't mean to say that he was honest," he clarified. "It seems he was lying and manipulating reality at an even higher rate than usual. But with a few momentary exceptions, the salesmanship, the oxygen of his rise to power, was gone."

Olbermann said Trump needed "a debate knockout." Instead, the incumbent president just appeared "stupid and dull."

Mary Trump sheds light on the president’s bizarre pattern of psychological projection

Published

President Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, appeared Friday on CNN to discuss her uncle's behavior during the recent president debate.

CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Tony Schwartz, who is best known for ghostwriting "Trump: The Art of the Deal," has said "that when the president attacks people, the words he uses, the attacks he wages against other people are really things that are true about himself."

The CNN host said a similar dynamic was at play during the final presidential debate when Trump attacked Biden as being part of an organized crime family.

"It is amazing how much projection there is and I don't know if that's the term," Cooper said.
