Mary Trump reveals recordings of Trump’s sister swiping at Ivanka, Eric
President Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, on Friday revealed audio recordings that reportedly capture the president’s sister Maryanne Trump Barry swiping at his children Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.
The audio, released by Mary Trump on MSNBC News late Friday evening, includes Barry taking aim at Ivanka Trump for an Instagram post around the start of the Trump administration’s policy separating families at the U.S. border.
The post in question featured Ivanka Trump with her younger son and was criticized at the time by comedian Samantha Bee, who later apologized for using the C-word to blast the senior White House adviser.
Barry says in the audio she doesn’t blame Bee for the comment.
“That damn Ivanka puts this picture of the Madonna and Child on Instagram when the big news of the day was how kids are being ripped from their families,” Barry says. “I’d never heard of Samantha Bee before. I couldn’t blame what she said.”
The audio goes on to a different recording in which Barry again swipes at Ivanka Trump and as well as Eric Trump.
“Meanwhile, Eric’s become the moron publicly. Ivanka gives a shit. She’s all about her,” Barry says.
Mary Trump is then heard in the audio saying, “Yeah, she’s a mini Donald.”
“She’s a mini Donald, but yet he’s besotted with her. He always has been,” Barry responds. “She’s always been his favorite.”
The new audio follows recently revealed audio shared by The Washington Post in which President Trump’s older sister said her brother “has no principles.”
“All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry reportedly says in the audio. “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.”
The Trump campaign dismissed the previous audio, chalking it up to “sibling rivalry.”
“Sibling rivalries are nothing new in the world. It’s been going on since the beginning of time. In fact, we heard some pretty pointed commentary from Malik Obama about former President Barack Obama,” Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller said. “And so this is something, unfortunately, when you get to the White House, you have family members who sometimes decide to voice their sibling rivalries or frustrations.”
The recent audio recordings shared by Mary Trump follow the release of her book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” which criticizes the president fiercely.
President Trump has hit his niece over the book and characterized it as an attempt to make money.
In July, he called Mary Trump “a seldom seen niece who knows little about me, says untruthful things about my wonderful parents (who couldn’t stand her!) and me, and violated her NDA [nondisclosure agreement].”
