When the President's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, was writing her bestselling book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, she recorded interviews with other members of the Trump family which contained shocking criticisms and revelations.
Mary Trump released one of these recordings to The Washington Postlast week. In it, Trump's sister, former federal circuit judge Maryanne Trump Barry, lashes out at not only the President, but also at "oblivious" Ivanka Trump and "moron" Eric Trump.

The recording, which was made near the height of outrage surrounding President Trump's family separation policy at the U.S. border, calls out Ivanka Trump for her behavior.
In it, Marryanne Trump Barry says:
"When that d*mn Ivanka puts this picture of the 'Madonna and Child' on Instagram when the big news of the day was how children are getting ripped away from their parents. ... I'd never heard of Samantha Bee, but I couldn't blame what she said."

Of course, Trump Barry reserved the harshest words for her brother Donald.
"All he wants to do is appeal to his base. He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean, my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people—not do this."
