FEATURING KATHA POLLITT – Mary Trump’s book about the President was not the first tell-all book by far about Donald Trump. Insiders, journalists, and former staffers have written numerous books dishing dirt about the most controversial American president in living memory. But Mary Trump’s book is unique in that it tells the story of the President from the perspective of a family member who had an inside view into his psyche. And, Ms. Trump has a Ph.D in clinical psychology.
Joining us to review the book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, is Katha Pollitt.
