Ever since she made the choice to take on a more public-facing role, Dr. Mary Trump has been a wonderfully vindicating voice of reason for those of us who’ve spent far too much time with the “WHY?” of her uncle, Donald. Her two books have given plenty of insight into what motivates him (mainly, fear of being found out he’s a complete fraud and suffering the consequences of his criming), and for me personally, it’s been helpful hearing things I’ve thought about him coming out of her mouth.
One thing I’ve repeatedly said about Donald–as Mary affirms he hates to be called–is that he would walk over the bodies of his own grandchildren to escape a burning building and then blame them for starting the fire. The ultimate narcissist with lifelong Martyr Syndrome, nothing is ever his fault, it’s everyone else’s. And the biggest irony of all is that he demands loyalty from everyone around him, yet shows absolutely none in return.
Now that the walls are closing in thanks to the bombshells dropped at every single January 6th Select Committee hearing, Donald is super scared he might actually face a criminal indictment. There’s also the special grand jury in Atlanta and the still-yet-to-be-rescheduled deposition with the New York State Attorney General. He’s going to be under oath, and he’s going to either perjure himself or implicate himself by telling the truth. But he certainly isn’t going to go down alone. Anyone still on the Trump Train is going over the cliff with him.
I love Mary Trump doing the play by play analysis of the fear and loathing rattling around in her crooked uncle's frenzy-filled noggin.
You just know he sees it and it drives him crazy that he can't stop her.

As Mary tells syndicated talk show host Thom Hartmann, “Donald didn’t do this by himself. He was enabled at every turn from people in his inner circle, everybody in the executive branch, and almost the entirety of the Republican Party. I think he’s going to turn on everybody. I think he’s, as we’ve seen, his circle is getting smaller and smaller by the controversy. So I think there will be very few people left standing.”
