Mary Trump Explains Fear, Denial and Manipulation

Dr. Mary Trump has a real chance to open up in this thoughtful dialogue on The Chauncey DeVega Show.  The host and his guest touch on the issue of using fear as a weapon to effectively manipulate people into doing incredible things, and explore the denialism we see in American culture today.  Fear and denial are depicted in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and are among the themes we will explore in the upcoming webcast series, “If America Fails?:  The Coming Tyranny.” Thank you, Chauncey DeVega for creating a space large enough for listeners to hear the depth of Mary Trump’s message for the world…and your own….and thank you Dr. Trump, for your willingness and capacity to speak truth.  You are an inspiration!

“Dr. Mary Trump is a clinical psychologist and businesswomen. She is also Donald Trump’s niece…She is the author of the bestselling book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man. Her new book is The Reckoning: Our Nation’s Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal

“Mary Trump explains why so many Americans are still in deep denial about Donald Trump’s enduring power and his ability to cause destruction and other harm to American society and the world…She warns that such denials and related fantasies about Donald Trump and his fascist movement somehow just ‘disappearing’ or ‘going away’ are a function of naiveté and childish thinking rooted in fear, immaturity, and not reality…Mary Trump also details how white privilege and denial and trauma have all come together in this moment to prevent an effective response to Trumpism, the Jim Crow Republicans, and American fascism more generally…She warns that yes, Donald Trump and his followers do indeed want to physically hurt (and worse) those Americans and others they identify as the enemy…

“Chauncey DeVega explains that America’s political elites on both sides of the aisle knew for a long time that Donald Trump represented an existential threat to American society per the ‘revelations’ in Bob Woodward’s new book Peril – yet, with few exceptions, they chose to be quiet and not warn the American people and the world.” #Mary Trump #Chauncey DeVega #The Reckoning Our Nation’s Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal #Bob Woodward
