Mary Trump, the niece of our ignominious president, has written a bombshell family memoir set to hit shelves next week. In it, she digs into the pathologies of her relatives and offers a unique, firsthand, and ultimately deeply unflattering portrait of Donald J. Trump and the “twisted behaviors” he has accumulated over the course of his life.
The title of Mrs. Trump’s book is: “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” which should give one a pretty clear picture of what to expect from the tome. Excerpts have been trickling out over the past few weeks and they offer a raw glimpse of the man many of us have had to piece together an incomplete understanding of through his reality TV shenanigans, racist rhetoric, and unhinged tweets.
One particularly interesting segment of the book strikes a staggering blow against President Trump’s claim that he is a “very stable genius” with a “very, very large brain.” Mary Trump alleges that during his high school years, Donald cheated on his SAT by paying someone else to go in and take the test on his behalf. That person ended up scoring well on the test, Trump claimed the score as his own and used it to gain admission to the world-renowned Wharton School of business within the University of Pennsylvania system.
The allegation is particularly embarrassing given the manner in which Donald regularly brags about his Wharton education.
“I went to an Ivy League school. I went to an Ivy League school. I’m very highly educated. I know words, I have the best words,” the president has bragged in the past. Apparently, the “best words” that Donald Trump knows are something like: “Here is some money, take my test to make me look smart.”
While no one other than the most diehard of MAGA fanatics would have claimed that Trump is a staggering intellect, this new accusation indicates he may be far less intelligent and far less scrupulous than the already subterranean low appraisals many of us already held. This man is a conman with the instincts of a caveman who would have never risen to his station in life if he hadn’t had his father’s money to grease the way.
As a high school student in Queens, Mary Trump writes, Donald Trump paid someone to take the SAT on his behalf.
The high score the proxy earned for him, Mary Trump adds, helped Trump to later gain admittance as an undergraduate to Wharton. https://t.co/bPuNNvjF5g
