Trump’s family member humiliates him as he falls asleep

It has been noted that Mary Trump, the niece of former President Donald Trump, made fun of Donald Trump after he fell asleep in court several times. She spoke to SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah and said via Mediaite that it concerns her that “narcolepsy runs in the family.”

Trump – host of The Mary Trump Show podcast and strident Trump critic and author of The good in us newsletter — was a guest in the Wednesday edition of The Dean Obeidallah Show.

They opened the interview by mocking Trump for repeatedly falling asleep during the trial this week, and Obeidallah brought up the topic later in the show to ask Mary what she thought about the naps:

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: Hello, Mary L Trump, how are you, my friend?

MARY TRUMP: Hello, Dean Obeidallah! Hanging in there. I’m a little sleepy! (laughs)

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: Well, is that a family affair? Is that genetic?

MARY TRUMP: Yeah, I’m a little concerned that narcolepsy runs in the family, but hopefully not.

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: Oh, yeah. We’ll talk about sleep and stuff–

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: You know, a lot of people have made light of it, of course, but I also think it’s significant that Donald fell asleep during part of the process the first two days.

This is his first criminal trial in his life. You’d think it would be riveted. So I guess he has no control.

I don’t mean narcolepsy. It’s a side effect of a medication, or he’s just tired. He is an older man. He’s 77, and maybe he takes a nap every day. We just don’t know. We don’t know what he does anymore. What? What do you make of it?

MARY TRUMP: Well, I don’t think we can underestimate the extent of the narcissistic injury that he suffers.

First, he is in a situation where he has no control and, even worse, he is under someone else’s control. There’s someone else in that room with all the authority, and he has none. So that’s already a problem for him.

Second. Sorry, I can’t help but laugh. Just because Donald is so mean to other people, he is so insulting and demeaning that there was a bit of gloating when the judge read out certain messages that potential jurors had posted on their social media pages.

You know, Donald invited the Thai guys to the White House, but they decided, for example, they’d rather go back to the cave. And he’s just pointing out how stupid he is, and he has to sit there and take it.

This is. I know this word is that he has to retire after November, but this is unprecedented in his lifetime. And it’s a moment he’s probably been dreading, subconsciously, for five and a half years.

So part of him was probably always terrified that it would happen, but he also probably never believed it would happen because he always gets away with everything. And here we are. And believe me, he understands how serious this is.
