Trump Complimented Niece Mary Trump’s ‘Stacked’ Chest in Front of Then-Wife Marla Maples
Donald Trump has a well-publicized history of making inappropriate comments to women, apparently even including his own niece, Mary Trump, which she notes in her tell-all book “Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man.”
Mary Trump is the daughter of the president’s late older brother and in her forthcoming memoir, she notes he made the inappropriate remarks at Mar-a-Lago in 1994. She was there to discuss helping him write a book, The New York Daily News reports.
“Holy sh*t Mary. You’re stacked,” he reportedly told her when she arrived for lunch wearing a bathing suit and a pair of shorts. She was 29 at the time.
Marla Maples, Trump’s second wife was there at the time and reacted with “mock horror,” Mary Trump writes.
“Donald!” Maples said, “lightly” slapping him on the arm.

The comment left her shocked.
“My face reddened, and I suddenly felt self-conscious,” she writes. “I pulled my towel around my shoulders. It occurred to me that nobody in my family, outside of my parents and brother, had ever seen me in a bathing suit.”
Mary lost her father, Fred Trump Jr. early on, having died after a long battle with alcohol. Her book is expected to be released Tuesday, and while Trump has yet to comment on it, White House aides are denouncing its “falsehoods.”
She notes that Trump had contacted her prior to the lunch meeting and sent her ten type-written pages of “material” for the book he was planning.
“I wasn’t sure what to think,” she said of Trump’s writings. “It was an aggrieved compendium of women he had expected to date but who, having refused him, were suddenly the worst, ugliest, and fattest slobs he’d ever met.”
And he didn’t stop there.
“The biggest takeaways were that Madonna chewed gum in a way Donald found unattractive and that Katarina Witt, a German Olympic figure skater who had won two gold medals and four world championships, had big calves.”
Unsurprisingly, the project never turned into a book, and Mary Trump, who’s also a clinical psychologist, says she believes her uncle suffers from several mental disorders. She also noted the cruel way in which Trump bullied her father, who had dreams of leaving the family’s real estate empire to become a pilot. She said she believes this bullying spurred her father’s alcoholism that eventually led to his death.
And her book details a staggering list of other things Trump has done. Most of these details are shocking and the president’s family has filed a lawsuit in the hopes of stopping its publication.
But Trump is well-known for being a misogynist who thinks nothing of calling women “pigs,” “dogs” and other highly insulting terms so the fact that he referred to his niece as “stacked” isn’t surprising. Hopefully, women will remember this on election day. After all, we make up half of the population and we can use our voices to wash that horrible orange stain out of our hair.
