Mary Trump Mocks Cousin Ivanka Trump For Conveniently Forgetting 1 Thing

Donald Trump's niece suggested a key detail may also have been blotted out by her uncle's legal team.

Ivanka Trump’s failed attempt to wriggle out of testifying in father Donald Trump’s civil fraud trial this week didn’t wash with her cousin Mary Trump.

MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan on Sunday mocked as a “pretty amazing excuse” Ivanka Trump’s claim of “undue hardship” because taking the stand would fall “in the middle of a school week.”

Mary Trump, a fierce critic of her uncle, agreed.

“I think it just speaks to the breathtaking entitlement of these people that they don’t even think that other people are going to look at their past behavior to realize that they leave their kids home all the time,” she told Hasan.

Mary Trump noted that Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, “probably have lots of help that most people with young children don’t have.”

“And she also seems to have forgotten that she has a husband who can presumably take care of their children,” she added.

Mary Trump also noted the “interesting” behavior of the former president’s lawyers, saying they “seem to be goading” Judge Arthur Engoron. The judge is overseeing New York Attorney General Letitia James’ $250 million lawsuit against the former president and his business for allegedly overvaluing assets.

Engoron last week expanded a gag order on Trump ― who was already barred from commenting on courtroom staff, prosecutors or witnesses ― to include the ex-president’s legal team.

“I am wondering if they actually have forgotten that the judge is not Donald’s base,” said Mary Trump. “He cannot be spun. He is going to be looking at the facts and evidence.”
