There’s no denying that ex-President Donald Trump was entirely blindsided when Biden Administration Attorney General Merrick Garland called him on his bluff and announced, during yesterday’s impromptu press briefing, that the Department of Justice was filing a motion to unseal the search warrant that was executed against the former president’s Mar-a-Lago compound. Frankly, Trump’s series of unhinged statements alone have been enough to prove that without a doubt.
But one of Trump’s own family members has now spoken out and, in her opinion, Garland’s bombshell moves recently have done a hell of a lot more than just surprise the former president.
Dr. Mary Trump, the niece of former President Donald Trump, appeared on MSNBC in the aftermath of the attorney general’s announcement and said she’s almost certain that her uncle never would have anticipated, in a million years, the calculated moves that have been made against him in recent weeks by Merrick Garland — based almost solely on the AG’s physical appearance.
“He’s probably having a very difficult time processing this because, you know, Donald is a coward and a bully,” Dr. Mary Trump, a professional psychologist, told MSNBC host Ari Melber in the segment. “He only attacks if he believes there will be no counterattack. He’s been tripped up by two things here. As Neal said earlier, Garland is playing chess. Donald can only play checkers. So, he’s being outmaneuvered. He’s also gotten tripped up. It never occurred to Donald that somebody who looks like Merrick Garland and talks like Merrick Garland is actually a ninja.”

It comes as no surprise that Donald Trump has underestimated the attorney general. He’s made a pesky habit out of doing just that throughout his entire political career. However, it’s never not burnt him in the end. And I truly believe that this particular underestimation is going to engulf him in flames once it’s all said and done.
