    Mary Trump’s Tell-All Book: President Cheated on SATs, Commented on Niece’s Breasts, Abandoned Brother on Deathbed

    Donald Trump cheated on his SATs, once referred to his niece’s breasts as being “stacked” and didn’t visit his dying brother at the hospital, according to excerpts from Mary Trump’s upcoming tell-all book that were reported upon on Tuesday.Mary Trump, the president’s niece, is scheduled to release “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” next Tuesday. According to promotional material from her publisher, Simon & Schuster, Mary Trump’s “explosive” book will show how the president “acquired twisted behaviors and values” like, “Financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms,” “a ‘killer’ instinct is revered, while qualities like empathy, kindness, and expertise are punished,” “taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged” and “cheating as a way of life.”According to the New York Times, which reviewed a manuscript of Mary Trump’s book, Donald Trump paid someone to take the SATs for him, and the “high score” helped him get into the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton business school. The Times also reported that Mary Trump recalls how no one went with Fred Trump Jr., Donald’s eldest brother who died from a heart attack, to the hospital on the night of his death; instead, Donald Trump went to the movies.Also Read: Kellyanne Conway Blames Media for Airing Out 'Family Matters' Detailed in Mary Trump's New Book (Video)The Daily Beast, which obtained a copy of the book, reported that Mary Trump recounts an incident when Donald Trump commented on her breasts when she was wearing a bathing suit and shorts during a trip to Mar-a-Lago when she was 29.“Holy s—, Mary. You’re stacked,” Donald Trump said to Mary Trump, according to the Daily Beast.The book also shares conversations that Mary Trump said she had with Maryanne Trump Barry, in which Donald Trump’s sister called him a “clown” and pushed back after white evangelicals started endorsing him for president.“The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there. It’s mind boggling. He has no principles. None!” Mary Trump recalls Maryanne saying, according to the Daily Beast.Read original story Mary Trump’s Tell-All Book: President Cheated on SATs, Commented on Niece’s Breasts, Abandoned Brother on Deathbed At TheWrap

    Trump’s Family Seeks Temporary Restraining Order to Block Niece’s Upcoming Tell-All Book

    Trump’s family is seeking a temporary restraining order against Mary Trump, the niece of Donald Trump, and her publisher Simon & Schuster over her upcoming tell-all book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.”The request, according to the New York Times, argues that Mary Trump is violating a nondisclosure agreement she signed when she settled with the Trump estate.The book has a July 28 publishing date; in a promotional summary, Simon & Schuster says Trump’s book “recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.”Also Read: John Bolton's 'The Room Where It Happened' Can Be Published, Judge RulesMary Trump’s attorney, Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., said that Trump and his siblings were “seeking to suppress a book that will discuss matters of utmost public importance.”Courtesy of Simon & Schuster“They are pursuing this unlawful prior restraint because they do not want the public to know the truth. The courts will not tolerate this brazen violation of the First Amendment,” he added.Over the weekend, the Trump administration failed to block the publication of former national security adviser John Bolton’s memoir, “The Room Where It Happened,” which was released on Tuesday. Adam Rothberg, a spokesperson for Simon & Schuster, told TheWrap that the Trumps’ attempt to block Mary Trump’s book will “meet the same fate as those that have gone before.” (Simon & Schuster is also the publisher of Bolton’s book.)Also Read: Trump Tweet Flagged With 'Public Interest Notice' for Threatening 'Serious Force' in Washington DCThis isn’t the first time that the president and his siblings have gotten into a legal battle with their niece. According to the Daily Mail, Mary and Fred Trump III — the children of the late Fred Jr., Donald Trump’s brother — filed a lawsuit against Donald and his siblings Robert and Maryanne, arguing that they wrongfully terminated medical benefits and coverage for Fred Trump III’s son in retaliation to Mary and Fred for challenging Fred Trump Sr.’s will. The suit was eventually settled for an undisclosed amount, the Daily Mail reported.Read original story Trump’s Family Seeks Temporary Restraining Order to Block Niece’s Upcoming Tell-All Book At TheWrap
