Emily Jane Fox notes three tell-all books from Trumpworld insiders — from Too Much and Never Enough by Mary Trump, Disloyal by Michael Cohen, and now Melania and Me by Stephanie Winston Wolkoff — are similar.
“What has struck me most about these books is not what salacious stories they have to share, though the stories are delicious and damning as advertised. It’s that some of the people closest to the Trumps have felt so jilted by them, so burned, so wrung out, that they’re willing to spill their guts about their own family or closest friends. The only reason these books exist is because the Trumps created a climate of backbiting and mistrust that subsumed everyone around them—a climate in which things like recording run-of-the-mill conversations to cover their hides or protect themselves from criminal investigations became the norm. For three different sets of reasons, Mary Trump, Cohen, and Wolkoff had the same knee-jerk response. They felt like it was the only way. And an even wilder notion: they were right.”
“That simple fact is more revealing than any leaked anecdote in any of these stories.”
