Eric Trump responded to cousin Mary Trump’s tell-all book about the entire family and he knocked her right off her high horse.
Mary Trump is vicious to her grandfather Fred and gets nasty with her uncle President Donald Trump.
She makes mostly old accusations seem knew and in that way she convinced millions to buy her book so she could cash in.
She went on ABC yesterday to promote the book and again went after her uncle saying he should resign. As to why she is just now coming forward, Mary gave up the game:
“I knew that if I had said anything I would have been painted as a disgruntled, disinherited niece who just wanted her 15 minutes which obviously is being said about me now.”
Enter Eric Trump: “Every family has one… It’s usually telling when that “one” stands alone.”
Trump also recalled seeing the president in the Oval Office about three months after he was inaugurated. She said that her uncle “already seemed very strained by the pressures” at the time.
“And I just remember thinking, ‘He seems tired. He seems like this is not what he signed up for,’” she added.
Prior to the book’s publication, a judge released Trump from a gag order, allowing her to speak publicly about her family.
“Now that the unconstitutional gag order has finally been lifted, we are sure the White House and America are looking forward to finally hearing what Mary has to say,” her spokesperson said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner.
The White House has pushed back on her claims and has questioned the timing of the book.
“Mary Trump and her book’s publisher may claim to be acting in the public interest, but this book is clearly in the author’s own financial self-interest,” White House deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews said. “President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people — why speak out now?”
It’s usually telling when that “one” stands alone.
