Mary Trump’s Tell-All Book Had Record-Setting First Day Sales

Videos by OutKick

Mary Trump’s tell-all on President Donald Trump sold 950,000 copies on its first day of release this week, publisher Simon & Schuster said.

The first day sales for “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” is a record for the publisher. The total includes pre-sales, e-books, and audiobooks.

The staggering amount is already crushing former national security adviser John Bolton’s tell-all on Trump, which sold 780,000 copies in the first week.

Mary Trump’s memoir topped Bob Woodward’s first day sales of 900,000 for the 2018 “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

It should surpass the 1.7 million copies Michael Wolff’s 2018 “Fire & Fury” sold in the first month.

Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist, is the daughter of the president’s brother Fred Trump, Jr. who died in 1981.

In June, Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, filed a legal action to stop the book’s release citing Mary’s nondisclosure agreement she signed in 2001 in a settlement over her inheritance. A New York judge allowed its release. The book was released Tuesday, two weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

Kayleigh McEnany, White House press secretary, Thursday called the memoir a “book of falsehoods, plain and simple.”

  1. Hey Bobby,
    You need to become certified through NYS Licensing Board by taking and passing a written exam. She has received a PhD from the university, but she was not certified by NYS to practice as a clinical psychologist. Got a degree? Okay. But if you’re not certified to practice as such…

    We need some fact checking here!!! Dr. Trump does not appear to be a Clinical Psychologist. Yes, it can be verified that she received her PhD in Clinical Psychology, but she does not come up as a licensed psychologist, at least in NY where she resides. Only Licensed Psychologists are legally permitted to use the official term Psychologist. As far as I can see, she is an executive coach who has training in psychology. The public needs to know the distinction and not be misled by headlines such as this one.

  2. This has me baffled. Many who despise Trump are spending hours reading books by Mary Trump, John Bolton, James Comey and the Mueller Report. If this is not just a confirmation bias circus, I am not sure what is.

  3. When you’re the most interesting man in the world, many will ride your coattails. The fact that it’s a family member attempting to make a fortune off of badmouthing another family member speaks to the kind of person this Mary Trump is.

  4. I would guess there’s a lot behind the curtain that we don’t know. Disgruntled, left out of the will somehow etc. etc.
    Remember, in the last election the innuendo, falsehoods, and out right lies were significantly more abundant and severe. Liberals, including Obama cabinet members, So-called TV journalists and media were claiming Trump was colluding with Russia and so were the people working for him. Remember how they claimed to actually hear recorded messages. This almost seems like child’s play compared to 2015/2016. Just my take.
