NYT gets some excerpts from the book of Trump’s niece

...or maybe the whole thing, I dunno.

Anyway, here’s a little tidbit:

Quote

As a high school student in Queens, Ms. Trump writes, Donald Trump paid someone to take a precollegiate test, the SAT, on his behalf. The high score the proxy earned for him, Ms. Trump adds, helped the young Mr. Trump to later gain admittance as an undergraduate to the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton business school.

To clarify, however, Trump didn’t start at Wharton. He did his first two years at Fordham, and got in at Wharton as a transfer student after his better-known brother, Fred Jr, pulled some strings and got him an interview. And his father accompanied him on the visit. Also:

Quote

At the time, Nolan said, more than half of applicants to Penn were accepted, and transfer students such as Donald Trump had an even higher acceptance rate based on their college experience.

No one knows how Trump did there, since his lawyer has threatened to sue anyone who released his records.

From that article:

Quote

Ms. Trump, a clinical psychologist [PhD], asserts that her uncle has all nine clinical criteria for being a narcissist. And yet, she notes, even that label does not capture the full array of the president’s psychological troubles.

“The fact is,” she writes, “Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for.”

It is important for people to know she is a clinical psychologist. Viewers of Faux News and listeners of talk radio will never hear about her qualifications.

That's because they wouldn't know what her qualifications mean.
