In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.

Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.

A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.

Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

Donald Trump was given a written briefing months ago about intelligence suggesting Russia offered bounties for attacks on US forces in Afghanistan, multiple US media have reported on Monday night. The president said on Sunday he was not told of the allegations because the information was not “credible”.

The New York Times quoted two sources as saying details were included in a daily intelligence briefing the president received in late February. CNN said an official with direct knowledge told them it was included in the briefing ...

Yes, that could well be the answer. I would love to know how that is manifested, as in, how is life better with Trump in charge? These figures from earlier this year, before the pandemic influenced the numbers, don't seem to support that argument.

I was hoping, honestly, that I would get an adult reply from you.

Your first paragraph is just childish, and is not worth responding to.

Regarding your second paragraph, you are using the old trick of changing the issue. It is you who is to substantiate your claim. I haven’t made any claim regarding Scottish Tories

I don’t see the point of your third paragraph. The issue is your claim regarding the number of Scottish voters who support Johnson.

Your final paragraph is straight out of primary school. Still you probably thought you were being smart when you posted it. A sign of someone who doesn’t understand that this forum is supposed to be an adult debate. Hence the reason so many others have given up .

Danny, your insulting my of intelligence no longer works, i answered your question for me to prove your claim that there is support for Johnson here, i reversed your question for you to me prove your claim that Tories don't support Johnson, and it's not childish to point out that i have had complaints to have my posts removed.

Bilbo,

Let’s get one thing straight. When you submit posts addressed to me, stop calling me Danny Boy.

Jagz is mature enough to continue any disagreement he has with me, without your interference.

Jagz did not disagree with me. He failed to respond to a simple question I put to him.

Regarding your sarcastic comments about World War 2, perhaps you could enlighten me on why you have seen fit to raise the fact that I was all of 13 when hostilities ceased. I wasn’t aware that during any war, anyone who was a child would not be affected by that war.

Once again you have displayed that trade mark of yours. Cowardly arrogance, which you mistake for superiority.

Jagz, what time of the evening does your Godfather come in to change your nappy. If you were a man you would have told him to get lost long ago. You both have the same trait. You gang up on people like me. Well you are wasting your time lads.

Well well well. Seems like old times. Right on schedule the last of the three balloons turns up. Oh sorry, that should have read, The Three Amigos. The three guys that can only spring into action as a team when the brains of the outfit, Bilbo snaps his fingers. What bugs Bilbo is that his two pals are not as intelligent as him. Must be awful for you Bilbo carrying those two numpties on your shoulders.

One minute they are crying “It’s awful quiet on this forum, where is everybody”? That is because they have nothing meaningful to contribute. They are just dying to get other people to come back in order for them to show how clever the three of them are as a team, deriding anyone who wants to leave the EU, and/or doesn’t support the SNP’s desire to have Scotland join the EU.

Jagz goes on and on about ‘normal’ countries do this and do that. What is a normal country?

Right Amigos, it’s your turn. Give us all a laugh.

Old Tory trick- divide & conquer. Only in this case, it does not work as I certainly in no way consider myself better than either Jagz or Wombat. That's your problem, Danny Boy, you have no conception of friendship, only competition. We three , among others, share views on important issues. I dare say that we disagree on other subjects, but that is not to affect our camaraderie. You, on the other hand, are an old fool - a sad old man, living in the past , pathetically dishing out completely unjustified insults to all who cross your path.

I don't want to take this thread way off topic Danny, but i'd say a normal country is a country that makes it's own decisions for the benefit of it's own people and not leave important decisions to larger neighbouring countries.

I'm sure the Donald would agree with me, unless he thinks that China or India would be better making all the USA's important decisions for them.

It was the same earlier when the Trump Administration outbid other countries, in particular germany, for existing PPE: masks etc., to help in his Invisible Enemy war: the one he said was only an other influenza and could be cured by one of his mate;s malaria treatments.
The last figures I saw had a death toll in Trumpland of 125,000 which, perhaps, an accountant may correct me if I'm wrong ( tongue.gif ) is about twice the death toll of US troops in the Nam Conflict.

Having said that, please go back and read Jagz initial post. All I asked of him was to substantiate his claim regarding the number of Scots who support Johnson. Also bear in mind he made that statement during a lockdown throughout Scotland. I think my question to him was a reasonable one to ask.

Then, as usual the Three Amigos got stuck into me. So would you please go back and see the abuse meted out to me by Bilbo. No attempt on his part to respond with an answer to support Jag’s claim.

Hi TomI

I can’t reply to the above, because I don’t know what you are implying.

Tommy and I lived our younger days just a few hundred yards from each other. So we would have a lot to talk about, I seem to remember when Tommy posted on here, he said he was badly injured while serving in Trieste with the British army, AFTER a world war 2. Another of my generation for whom the War didn’t end in 1945. Two million of us did National Service or five years in the Merchant Navy.

Some didn’t come back, like Gordon Landels of Partick. He and I met on the train for the first time on the journey to our training camp. When we had finished training, I was posted to Germany. Gordon was posted to a camp just up the road from where we did our trading. I said to him, “You are a lucky sod, getting a home posting”. A couple of months later, my wife. Sent me the front page of the Daily Record. Gordon was in the front page. He had been blown up during a training exercise with explosives.

We were in the Royal Engineers, the training we received in training was pathetic. The possibility of being killed during that period was just an accepted as being normal by the Army. So these balloons like Bilbo and Wombat just make me feel sick when they make their bile posts.

So the point of this post is to inform these two sad creatures, that they can make all the remarks about me they wish to make. But don’t defile the memory of the thousands of young people who survived World War 2, only to Have to put on a uniform.
