Maryanne Trump Barry was secretly recorded trashing her brother, President Donald Trump, in 2018 and 2019.
Maryanne was recorded by her niece Mary Trump, who recently wrote a best-selling tell-all book about the president. Mary gave the recordings to the Washington Post.
Maryanne, who was a federal judge, slammed her brother when he was separating immigrant from their parents and caging them:
All he wants to do is appeal to his base. 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...
His g*ddamned tweet and lying, oh my God. I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy sh*t...
It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel.
Maryanne also recalled how she tried to helped the future president into college:
He was a brat. I did his homework for him. I drove him around New York City to try to get him into college.
He went to Fordham for one year [actually two years] and then he got into University of Pennsylvania because he had somebody take the exams. SATs or whatever … That’s what I believe. even remember the name [Joe Shapiro].
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows tried to smear Maryanne during an appearance on ABC’s This Week on Aug. 23:
Just another day and another attack. I’ve never met the judge. I was at the funeral, I was hoping to meet her there. She didn’t show up for her brother’s funeral. And the president that I have the privilege of serving is not the one that is being described on a 15 hour secret tape.
