'You're stacked!': Trump once complimented niece Mary's breasts in front of then-wife Marla Maples, book claims
Mary Trump, the niece of President Donald Trump, has reportedly claimed in her bombshell memoir that her uncle once complimented her breasts when she visited his Florida resort in the early 1990s. Mary writes in 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man' that the future president took notice of her body at Mar-a-Lago when she showed up to luncheon in a bathing suit.
"Holy s---, Mary. You're stacked," Trump remarked, as she claims in the book, before his then-wife Marla Maples reprimanded him in "mock horror" with a slap on the wrist. "I was twenty-nine and not easily embarrassed, but my face reddened, and I suddenly felt self-conscious," Mary, now a clinical psychologist, wrote. "I pulled my towel around my shoulders. It occurred to me that nobody in my family, outside of my parents and brother, had ever seen me in a bathing suit."
That said, the White House has denied the contents of the book outright. "Mary Trump and her book's publisher may claim to be acting in the public interest, but this book is clearly in the author's own financial self-interest," deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews said in a statement. "President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people — why speak out now?"
The former real-estate mogul has previously faced backlash over similar allegations. During a series of radio interviews with Howard Stern in the 2000s, Trump allegedly referred to his eldest daughter "a piece of ass" and said Ivanka Trump had "always been very voluptuous." Stern reportedly asked him whether Ivanka had ever gotten breast implants. "No, she didn't. I mean, I would know if she did," the future POTUS responded. "The answer is no. Why, did she look a little more stacked?"
Trump's niece has also claimed in her explosive memoir that he is a pathological "narcissist" who cheated on his college entrance examination and has embraced "cheating as a way of life" ever since.
In excerpts viewed by the New York Times, Mary recalled Trump's time in high school in Queens, when she claimed he paid someone to take the SATs for him. The high score that the proxy earned him helped him gain admittance when he transferred as an undergraduate to the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton business school. Trump has repeatedly boasted about attending Wharton and has referred to it as the "best school in the world" that involves "super genius stuff."
Mary went on to claim that Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, a retired federal appeals court judge, had expressed concern when he announced he was running for the presidency. "He’s a clown -- this will never happen," she quotes her aunt saying during one of their regular lunches in 2015, adding that Maryanne was particularly baffled about the support for him among the evangelical Christians. "The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there," Maryanne reportedly told her. "It’s mind-boggling. But that’s all about his base. He has no principles. None!"
