Australian TV host grills Mary Trump over trashing Uncle Donald: ‘What drives you to do this?’

An Australian TV host may very well have been suggesting former President Donald Trump’s psychologist niece Mary Trump was overdue for a therapy session of her own when the grifting relative was recently questioned on her motivations.

The podcast host and author of the 2020 book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” is set to travel to Oz come June to continue promoting her ravings against her relatives. Ahead of that, the hosts of “Sunrise” brought the lesser Trump on their morning show for her opinion after the president spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference last Saturday.

After airing clips of his speech where the onetime commander in chief said, “In 2016, I declared I am your voice. Today I add I am your warrior, I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution,” Trump was pointedly asked by cohost Natalie Barr, “It’s one thing disagreeing with a member of your own family, but it’s quite another to speak out so vehemently against someone in your own family. What drives you to do this?”

Trump claimed, “Well, honestly, the only reason I do it is because Donald is a very dangerous person, not just to the people around him, but to the United States of America and hence to the world.”

The psychologist had just finished arguing, “He’s shown himself to be what he’s been for decades. He’s a very vindictive person. He has only his own self-interest uppermost in his mind. He doesn’t care about other human beings. He doesn’t have empathy.”

“I mean, maybe what would surprise people is underneath that, you know, sort of tough exterior, the guy who claims that he’s a warrior, he’s really just a frightened little boy who has never recovered from the trauma he experienced as a child,” she contended. “And unfortunately, because of that and because there were enough people in his life to basically take advantage of his psychopathologies, he’s never had to evolve. So he’s exactly the same person he was when he was a kid.”

To her own motivations she added, “So it wasn’t until after the 2016 election, presidential election, that I realized that if given the opportunity, I needed to do something to help inform the American electorate about exactly who it is they were going to be voting for in 2020. Nobody wants him to leave the political stage more than I do, but unfortunately, the Republican Party has done absolutely nothing to separate itself from him.”

“And in fact, they are almost 100 percent behind him, despite the fact that, you know, he’s under criminal investigation,” Trump noted before tacking on her opinions as though they were objective truths. “He’s incited an insurrection against his own country. And he continues to claim that the 2022 presidential election was fraudulent, which it wasn’t.”

In the past, the podcast host had raved that her uncle was a “mass murder, criminal” who should be in prison after the Democrat-led House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis from the 117th Congress had leveled the president had interfered in the pandemic response.

Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), then-chair, had said in part, “President Trump and his top aides repeatedly attacked CDC scientists, compromised the agency’s public health guidance, and suppressed scientific reports in an effort to downplay the seriousness of the coronavirus.”

“This prioritization of politics, contempt for science, and refusal to follow the advice of public health experts harmed the nation’s ability to respond effectively to the coronavirus crisis and put Americans at risk,” he went on.

Meanwhile, recent reports from the new Republican-led investigations have found quite the opposite as it appears the then-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, may have worked to cover up the origins of COVID and his potential role in funding the research many believe created the virus.
