As you’ve likely heard, President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary L. Trump, has a book coming out very soon. Supposedly, it is filled with shocking stories of the President’s youth and younger years that are meant to, once they come to light, be the ruination of his political career.
However, upon a closer examination of both the book, titled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” and the family’s actual past, it seems that the book was all for naught. In actuality, it is little more than the ranting of a girl who feels wronged by her family and looking for revenge.
Within the 200-page piece, is an accusation that – wait for it – President Trump may have paid off a friend to take his SAT for him, among other things.
According to the 55-year-old Mary Trump, the young Donald Trump was looking to transfer from Fordham University to the more elite and prestigious Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania in the future. But, to do so, he needed an excellent SAT score. So, given that the family was beyond wealthy, Trump simply paid someone else to take the much-needed exam for him.
I know, shocking, right?
However, let’s go over a few things here. In the end, you can decide for yourself if you think the accusation is true or not.
The first thing we have to cover is how Mary Trump claims took the test for the young Donald Trump.
Mary names the late Joe Shapiro as the President’s proxy. Now, Shapiro certainly had the brain for such an endeavor. He was allegedly known for doing really well on tests of just about any kind as his widow recalls, he was “the smartest man” she’d ever known. His brains enabled him to be a very successful lawyer, working for Walt Disney Co. and even becoming the vice president of that enterprise.
Shapiro died in 1999 after a long battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
And that brings me to my main point.
Am I the only one who finds it odd that, of all the people Mary decides to name, who could have pulled off such a feat, she tags a dead man – someone who couldn’t even begin to defend himself or Mr. Trump.
Luckily, there is one who has taken up the task for him: his widow, Pam Shriver.
Shriver, a former star tennis player, and current ESPN tennis analyst claims this is something Joe would never do. She told ABC News, “He always did the right thing, and that’s why this hurts.”
Secondly, Shriver notes that according to what her late husband told her, Shapiro and Trump didn’t meet until after the time when the SAT would have been taken. According to a short Twitter video put out by Shriver on Wednesday, Shapiro and Trump met while the two were attending classes at the University of Pennsylvania. She said the two had several things in common, such as a love of golf and so connected easily, staying in touch throughout the years.
Now, tell me, why would Trump need to take the SAT again after already being admitted to the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania? That’s what I thought; he wouldn’t.
Shriver told ABC News, “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here, and he would have known how to deal with this.”
But as we all know, the left’s ludicrous logic isn’t really a stickler for facts and, well, logic.
Instead, they are going to try just about anything they think will work, in order to oust their “enemy #1” from the White House, including using a long and nearly disowned relative to tell the family’s “secrets” that turns out, aren’t so secret or damning.
This book, and its ridiculous attempt to smear Trump’s name, has only proved how desperate they are to achieve this goal. And also, how miserably they will continue to fail.
