Mary Trump expressed concern about the support for Donald Trump’s immigration remarks, noting that his legal, financial, and political troubles are escalating.
She emphasized the danger of his personality disorders and the need to take his words seriously, particularly given the insurrection and the “big lie” after the 2020 election.
She also highlighted worries about Trump’s enablers and supporters, cautioning against underestimating their impact. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)
Additionally, she and the host discussed the troubling nature of the people who applaud Trump’s remarks, expressing concern about the direction in which the country is heading.
“Donald is definitely a cornered animal at this point. His legal, financial, and political danger is increasing by the day, and his profound personality disorders make it impossible for him to care about anything but his own safety and security,” Mary said.
“So unbelievably enough, I think we have been having this conversation now since the middle of the, hopefully, first and only Trump administration. There is no bottom here.”
“There is nothing we should put past him. He does not deserve the benefit of the doubt. We need to take him at his word. I think we’ve seen more evidence of this, especially since the election was called in 2020 with the big lie and then the insurrection.”
“But what worries me more at this point are his enablers, the people he seeks to empower if he tragically gets back into office and the people in the audience who cheer him on,” she said.
Katie Phang said, “Yeah, I share your sentiment. I tweeted out it’s bad enough to hear the horrific things he says and the people applauding it a equally equally worse, maybe worse because they bolster him up.”
“The sentiments are also his,” Mary said.
“I don’t care that he claims never to have read Mein Kampf. I’m sure he didn’t because he doesn’t read but the fact that a potential presidential nominee, even those words come out of his mouth, is just a tragic example of where we find ourselves.”
“So one I think he does feed off the crowd, but also there is no turning back at this point because of all of the people in his orbit who have the same agenda.”
