Mary Trump Goes OFF on Media for Normalizing Trump
Dean: Do you think Democrats should be calling for the criminal prosecution of your uncle? Mary: Yeah. Again, this is what's so mind blowing. They're more focused on bipartisanship, which legitimizes the people who tried to overturn our election. It legitimizes Donald, in a way. This was the biggest problem, in my view, in his not getting convicted in the Senate both times. There was plenty of evidence to prove that he should have been. He gets away with it.

Ex-presidential niece Mary Trump told SiriusXM host and Salon interveiwer Dean Obeidallah that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other Republicans aren't afraid of Trump, but rather are using him to achieve their political aims.

On Friday, the host talked with Ms. Trump for hiss Salon interview series, and asked her Democrats should agitate for her uncle to be criminally prosecuted. She did not mince words, as usual:


Dean: Do you think Democrats should be calling for the criminal prosecution of your uncle?

Mary: Yeah. Again, this is what's so mind blowing. They're more focused on bipartisanship, which legitimizes the people who tried to overturn our election. It legitimizes Donald, in a way. This was the biggest problem, in my view, in his not getting convicted in the Senate both times. There was plenty of evidence to prove that he should have been. He gets away with it. He gets impeached, not convicted, and then the media treat him, in the fall of 2020, like he's just a normal, legitimate candidate, when in fact, he was trying to steal an election. It's this need to normalize things, which is so powerful and destructive that it's all the more important that we stop pulling punches, that we use language that's accurate. It took the media three years to call Donald's lies "lies." I'm not entirely sure they ever called his racism "racism."

I don't know that they have it in them to use the fascism word. We've got to be really clear about what's going on. Republicans can call us Marxists, communists, socialists, Leninists, whatever, but they're never asked to define their terms. You ask any of us who are calling them fascist why they are, we can explain it to you. The Democrats just need to stop pretending that we can all be polite and get along under the current circumstances.

I've seen that happen here frequently. But like a disobedient dog, even if you shove a fascist's nose in the actual definition they just give you that "Who, me?" look and go back to vacillating their insults between communist or socialist without caring about the fact that the terms are not actually interchangeable and have very different meanings.

Yes, the Democrats are just so focused on bipartisanship!/S

She and the left have completely lost touch with reality. 

Quick, the Democrats need a distraction from the might mental midget's massive fuck ups in the White House, what are we going to do? I know, let's interview Mary Trump. She is an expert on jack shit of nothing; but has the Trump last name and is a TDS driven as it gets. That will placate our mindless base.

Your usual projection, deflection, and denial. 

Ho hum. . . . .

Sounds more like somebody looking for their 15 minutes.

She has been interviewed fairly regularly on various media outlets ever since she provided the New York Times with the Trump family's tax records in 2018,  for the newspapers story proving Trump and his parents and siblings were tax cheats.  She has written two best selling books in the past two years. She went past the 15 minutes of fame level a long time ago.

Oh, she's that turned over everything the government already had.  No wonder nobody gives her an initial though.

for the newspapers story proving Trump and his parents and siblings were tax cheats.

A newspaper story?  I guess it escapes you that if there were any truth to it, something would have been done.

She has written two best selling books in the past two years. 

So, 2 "best selling books".  She's no better than JK Rowling, Tom Clancy, Stephen King and Dr. Seusse.

She went past the 15 minutes of fame level a long time ago. 

For the first time I agree with you.  Her 15 minutes expired.
