In audio originally obtained by The Washington Post, Maryanne Trump Barry spoke harshly of her brother, Donald Trump, seemingly confirming that he had someone else take his SAT’s for him, one of the most explosive allegations from his niece Mary Trump’s book, accused him of being a liar, and calling him a “brat.”
It was Trump’s niece, author of the bombshell book ‘Too Much And Never Enough,’ who provided the audio to The Washington Post. She told the Post she had recorded about 15 hours of face-to-face conversations with Barry between 2018 and 2019.
“All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry, 83, said in one of the conversations. “He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”
Barry, who has never spoken publicly about her brother, made derisive comments about the way he operates as president.
“His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God,” she said. “I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy shit.”
Barry talked about helping her brother get into college, admitting to doing his homework for him and saying “He went to Fordham for one year and then he got into University of Pennsylvania because he had somebody take the exams,” referring to his SATs. Trump attended Fordham for two years, according to the Post.
Previously, the source for the information in Mary Trump’s book was unknown, and she had declined to name her sources. It has now been learned that the conversations were being recorded trying to get the truth about a legal battle over her inheritance two decades later. She had no idea Barry would share as much as she did.
“Every day it’s something else, who cares. I miss my brother, and I’ll continue to work hard for the American people. Not everyone agrees, but the results are obvious. Our country will soon be stronger than ever before,” the White House issued in a statement from the president on Saturday night.
