Yesterday we got the news that Mary Trump’s new tell-all book about Donald Trump is being released two weeks sooner than expected. Today we’re seeing some of the juicy details of that book surfacing in the media. For instance, it turns out Donald Trump cheated on his SAT exam.
If you’ve ever wondered how someone with Donald Trump’s fairly low academic intelligence could get into a prestigious school like Wharton, now you have your answer. The New York Times says that according to Mary Trump’s book, Donald simply hired someone else to take his SATs for him.
The book also reveals that Donald Trump went to see a movie while his brother Fred Trump was dying alone in the hospital. In addition, Mary quotes Donald Trump’s sister Maryanne Trump as saying that it’s “mind boggling” that Donald got the evangelical vote in 2016 because “he has no principles.”
Mary Trump also touches on something that the rest of us have long found difficult: how to properly classify the array of psychological conditions and failings that affect him. She says that “Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for.” You can order Mary Trump’s book here.
