Mary Trump blasted her uncle, President Trump, after his coronavirus diagnosis, saying she reserves her “sympathy” for those “who are sick and for those who have died because they were misled, lied to, or ignored.”
The author and psychologist didn’t address her uncle directly but instead acknowledged his past downplaying and lying about the seriousness of the pandemic.
“I reserve my sympathy, empathy, and despair for those who are sick and for those who have died because they were misled, lied to, or ignored,” she tweeted Friday, adding: “Wear a f*cking mask.”

During the first presidential election on Tuesday, Mary tweeted to say her uncle’s debate performance “was a grotesque combination of lies, racism, breathtaking callousness, and threats against our democracy.”
“He is being allowed, on national television, to sow uncertainty about the upcoming election, the 55-year-old added. “Everything he just said is a lie. Everything. He is the fraud.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also had little sympathy for the President’s affliction, deeming his actions a “brazen invitation” to contracting the virus.
“But it also is something that again, going into crowds, unmasked and all the rest was sort of a brazen invitation for something like this to happen,” Pelosi told MSNBC’s Stephanie Rule today. “Sad that it did but nonetheless hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.”
