Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, appeared on “The View” on Thursday where she called the president “a very desperate man” working to appear as if he’s not a loser after losing after the 2020 election.
“We’re seeing a very desperate man,” Dr. Trump explained. He’s “somebody who knows that his best option is to cling to power no matter who gets hurt in the process. Obviously, there really isn’t any way for him to do that legitimately. So, he’s going to pursue whatever illegitimate means that he has at his disposal. And, you know, it’s really troubling because it’s not just that Donald is hurting himself, which he is doing by continuing to play this out to these absurd lengths. he’s doing serious damage to our democracy, to people’s faith in the American electoral process, and he’s also undermining the legitimacy of the incoming administration which is going to make it that much harder for President [Joe] Biden and Vice President [Kamala] Harris to get us out of these interconnected crises that we’re all suffering from right now.”
Joy Behar asked for specifics on how Trump is hurting himself, which Dr. Trump explained is destroying any credibility he had left by “behaving like an immature bully.
“The only thing he has left right now is his grievance,” Dr. Trump continued. “And I think yes, there are some people for whom that won’t change anything, his most ardent supporters aren’t going to be bothered by that at all, but I think it does two things: It is going to increase his irrelevance after the inauguration, and I think it increases the urgency for holding him accountable when he no longer has the protection of the Oval Office.”
