Donald Trump is suing the NYT & his niece Mary, who calls him a ‘f–ing loser’

Trump Departs for Greenville, NC

In the summer of 2020, Mary Trump’s book was published. Mary is the niece of Donald Trump, and she’s also a trained mental health professional. She called it as she saw it: her family is made up of grifters, psychos, narcissists, liars, thieves and sociopaths. Mary didn’t simply analyze her family from a psychological standpoint, she also had a financial grudge: her uncle and other members of her family had cheated her father and his children out of their share of the family business. Mary ended up suing her uncle and other family members after the book was published, and she worked with journalists to uncover some of the Trump family’s years-long financial crimes. Well, now Donald Trump is suing Mary. And Mary responded by calling him a “f–king loser.”

Former President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against The New York Times, three of its reporters, and his niece—claiming they hatched an “insidious plot” to obtain his private records for a story about his tax history.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Dutchess County, New York, by attorney Alina Habba, alleges that the newspaper convinced Mary Trump to “smuggle records out of her attorney’s office and turn them over to the Times” despite her having signed a confidentiality agreement in 2001 after settling a contentious legal battle over the will of Frederick Trump, Donald’s father and Mary’s grandfather.

The new lawsuit seeks damages “in an amount to be determined at trial, but believed to be no less than One Hundred Million Dollars” from both Mary Trump and the Times.

Judge Hal Greenwald ruled in that case that the 2001 confidentiality agreement had been too vaguely defined to stop her from writing about the sitting president and noted that her publisher had not been a signatory to that agreement. Robert Trump died in August 2020.

“I think he is a f–king loser, and he is going to throw anything against the wall he can,” said Mary Trump of her uncle’s new suit. “It’s desperation. The walls are closing in and he is throwing anything against the wall that will stick. As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”

I’m not even going to bother trying to figure out which Trump has a case, although I will breezily admit that I don’t think the confidentiality agreement Mary signed will ever hold up in any court. Especially not when there are larger crimes being discussed. Anyway, this is just Donald Trump being a f–king loser and pretending like his niece was the reason why he lost the election. She wasn’t. I kind of forgot about her, that’s how little she had to do with the scandal-plagued Trump era.

    Honk for Mary Trump

    I love that she replied using words he can understand.

    This sort of thing isn’t my area of practice, but this lawsuit seems…nonsensical to me? They’re using a lot of terms like “insidious plot” & “smuggling records” to describe Mary Trump taking copies of tax returns out of HER attorney’s office. (By the way, later today, I’ll be sending a client out the door with copies of documents. Feel free to alert the authorities.) And the confidentiality agreement has already been ruled upon.

    We know Trump doesn’t pay his lawyers (or anyone). I guess this attorney is just trying to drum up a little publicity.

      Lol! I can’t think of an easier way to get a judge to roll their eyes than to use that kind of hyperbolic language. Haven’t read the complaint, don’t really care to. But have to wonder what kind of lawyer at this point would take him on as a client. I mean, sure, notoriety. With all the wrong people. Or maybe right-wing people in deep sh-t who will actually be able to pay.

    • The Recluse says:

      This is how Drumpf operates: sue his adversaries. It’s a general intimidation tactic, but his niece knows him and how he operates. Discovery is going to be an ‘Itch for Drumpf, but he’s too stupid to realize it yet again.

    Donald Trump is going to “go through some things” and I’m here for it.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ VegasSchmegas, I am as well!! Please let it be complete destruction of his freedom which he exchanges for an orange jumpsuit!!

  5. LaraW” says:

    What is it with Trump and his friggin tax returns??? I cannot think of anything that he’s fought against this hard.

    The only thing I can think of is that he’s dirt poor, which would humiliate him in front of everyone. And Trump fears humiliation more than anything in the world.

    • HeyJude says:

      Al Capone issues- his tax returns will show massive tax evasion (reports are he pays NOTHING in taxes and hasn’t for decades) which he would face charges for if completely uncovered.

      There are likely shell companies, overseas money laundering, claiming government relief he has no business claiming etc. all involved.

      Trump’s taxes are the easiest, non-political way to get his ass in jail basically.

    • AMA1977 says:

      Agree, I think he knows that the returns will show that it’s all a scam, he has no actual assets, and is nowhere NEAR the “billionaire” he claims to be. My dad has said since Day One that anyone who fails as a casino operator has ZERO money management skills and he’s broke. His tax returns will make that abundantly clear. Along with all of the issues @HeyJude cites, the fraud is also likely glaring and rampant. Go Mary go!!!!

    • Becks1 says:

      It’s like what Seth Myers said about him years ago – “I think you’re broke.” And that damages his image.

      But I also think its more than that – outright tax fraud maybe, or tax evasion, IDK.

  6. MissMarirose says:

    I hope Ms. Habba got her money up front because we all know Trump isn’t going to pay once this lawsuit gets thrown out.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ MissMarirose, I find that doubtful but she is stuck with the consequences as he has historically not paid anyone that they are actually contractually owed. Drumpf has done it with every business entity known to man. The contractors, the attorneys, the towns and conference centers where he held rallies. He refuses to think that he should pay anyone for their services, he has left a long list of companies that he has bankrupted for his selfishness. If he in mandated by the courts, he offers about 0.10 on the dollar of debt.

      Drumpf is also selling his DC hotel as well, it was recently reported. Now that he has stolen millions of dollars from the US taxpayer, it’s no more use to him. Which he perpetuated the same scam in NJ as well!!

    Everyone is against him. It’s all a conspiracy. You know, back in the old days, that sort belief was known as a persecution complex, and considered a sign one was mentally unwell. Now it is a political party platform. Bigly sad.

  8. Katie says:

    Did the original legal document really capitalize “One Hundred Million Dollars”? My brain automatically read in an Austin Powers Dr. Evil voice.

    • AMA1977 says:

      Ha!! The bigly random capitalization is a 45 trademark, must be rubbing off on his new counsel. Either that or he drafted the damn pleading himself and she just filed it, a la the glowing, fake-ass declaration of health that he wrote and forced his sketch “private physician” to sign.

    I have listened to several interviews (podcasts) with Mary Trump and she brings it!
