Washington Post: In secretly recorded audio, President Trump’s sister says he has ‘no principles’ and ‘you can’t trust him’
Much of the material for Mary Trump's book was obtained by secretly recording her aunt Marianne Trump Barry (Trump's sister) over several months in 2018-2019. Mary Trump has turned over 15 hours of the recordings to the Washington Post. You can read about all her damning opinions about her brother in the article...some go deeper than what Mary revealed in her book. A few excerpts:
In a conversation pertaining to Trump's family separation policy at the border, "“All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry said in a conversation secretly recorded by her niece, Mary L. Trump. “He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”"
"Barry, 83, was aghast at how her 74-year-old brother operated as president. “His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God,” she said. “I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy shit.”"
"At one point Barry said to her niece, “It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel.”"
"Barry told how she tried to help her brother get into college. “He was a brat,” Barry said, explaining that “I did his homework for him” and “I drove him around New York City to try to get him into college.”"
"Then Barry dropped what Mary considered a bombshell: “He went to Fordham for one year [actually two years] and then he got into University of Pennsylvania because he had somebody take the exams.”"
“No way!” Mary responded. “He had somebody take his entrance exams?”
“SATs or whatever. .?.?. That’s what I believe,” Barry said. “I even remember the name.” That person was Joe Shapiro, Barry said.
These are being released by the WP on the eve of the Republican Convention. For his Republican base, like always, they will circle the wagons around the president.
