“President Trump did not acknowledge he won’t be president anymore,” said Cooper, referring to Donald Trump’s latest video. “He did not concede or say President-elect Biden’s name and, of course, he’s not going to the inauguration. He tacitly acknowledges he’s become what he loathes, which is a loser. What do you think he’s going through now?”
“This is probably the worst day of his life, because the clock is ticking and he’s running out of time,” said Mary Trump.
“The other thing I just want to point out about that speech, it was reminiscent of one of the videos he made directly after the insurrection he incited saying the movement is just beginning, which seems like a bit of a threat to me.”
“My hope is that he be as contained as possible. He’s going to do whatever he can or believes he can to change the narrative, and I think we’re going to see that play out with some of these pardons in excess of a hundred, if I’m hearing that correctly, and some of these pardons will be quite horrific, some of them will be strategic.”
“The bottom line is: he’s out of there.”
Mary has been in the news this year for her tell-all book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, where she explains how toxic family relationships and bigotry led to making Donald Trump what he is today.
By the 1990s, Mary was already living with a woman and planning to marry her. She said in her book that the whole family got together while her grandfather was sick and dying and that she thought about coming out then.
“It’s a disgrace they’re letting that little fa***t Elton John sing at [Princess Diana’s] service,” Mary said her grandmother said at the gathering.
“I’d realized it was better that she didn’t know I was living with… a woman,” Mary wrote. She decided against coming out.
Her late uncle Robert Trump, Donald’s brother, tried to sue her to stop the publication of the book. The lawsuit failed when an appellate judge in New York allowed Simon & Schuster to publish the book.
She’s now suing Donald Trump and his sister for allegedly conspiring to defraud her of tens of millions of dollars.
