WATCH: Mary Trump Rips Her Uncles “Disgraceful” Decision to Announce a Boxing Match on 9/11
Just as he does with any other event, Donald Trump uses the anniversary of 9/11 to promote himself. On the actual day, he did an interview with a local news station bragging that he now had the tallest tower in lower Manhattan. He’s also told lies about Muslims cheering in the streets and two big firemen pulling him out of a building.
On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Trump will be doing something different. He and son Don Jr. will be calling a boxing match. During a Friday interview with CNN, Mary Trump called the decision “disgraceful.”
Anderson Cooper asked, “Does it surprise you even by his low standard? If another former president decided to spend 9/11 commenting on a boxing match on pay-per-view, people would … their heads would explode.”
Trump answered, “That’s been the problem all along. For reasons that are very difficult to understand. There is a completely different standard that Donald‘s held to. In fact, he‘s held to no standard.”
The psychologist and author continued, “It’s disgraceful. And if there is no blowback on the right for this — disgraceful isn’t a strong enough word to describe what you just mentioned — then that tells us everything we need to know about the current state of the Republican Party, and it tells us that the Democrats really need to start wrapping their heads around the fact that this is not a party that can be worked with, this is not a party that should be conceded to.”
