NPR hypes romance novel written by ‘heroes of the #Resistance,’ Mary Trump and E. Jean Carroll

Trump Derangement Syndrome may be making its way to a new genre as the former president’s niece delighted NPR with a foray into writing romance with the help of her knitting group which happened to include E. Jean Carroll.

Just because former President Donald Trump lives rent-free in the minds of leftists doesn’t mean the opportunists don’t know how to continue capitalizing off of it. As such, his psychologist niece Mary Trump joined NPR’s “All Things Considered” Friday to discuss her venture into serialized romance.

As NPR’s Chloe Veltman explained, “Trump says her decision to pen a romance grew out of a conversation among friends she met through an online knitting group she joined in 2021. That group not only includes E. Jean Carroll, but also renowned legal scholar and nonfiction book author Jennifer Taub, who eventually signed on as Trump’s editor for the project.”

Media Research Center’s Newsbusters referred to the collaboration as “heroes of the #Resistance.”

Appearing on her Substack in planned biweekly installments, “The Italian Lesson” was described by Trump as “An American woman goes to a hill town in Tuscany, opens a café, meet this hunk.”

Veltman had no qualms pointing out the animus the trio had for the president and stated, “Trump, Carroll and Taub have all been under the spotlight in recent years for their strong words and actions, especially concerning Donald Trump. Carroll, of course, is known for having recently won a civil lawsuit against the former president for sexual abuse and defamation. And both Mary Trump’s family memoir, ‘Too Much and Never Enough,’ and Taub’s book about white-collar crime, ‘Big Dirty Money,’ are hypercritical of Donald Trump.”

Following Carroll’s successful lawsuit against the president that awarded her $5 million, the writer was poised to bilk the businessman turned political leader for even more after speaking to the absurdity of the claims made during a town hall on CNN.

“I don’t know her. I never met her. I have no idea who she is. I had a picture taken years ago with her and her husband. Nice guy, Johnson. He was a newscaster, very nice man. She called him an ape,” the president said at one point. “Happens to be African American. Called him an ape.”

Taub attempted to laud the first-time fiction writer and said, “Mary is an incredible world-builder, but the kind of things that she might leave out is — on the first date, she doesn’t describe what the heroine is wearing.”

However, NPR brought in co-founder and romance critic Sarah Wendell who addressed the reality that the trio would certainly benefit from their name ID. “Is the fact that they’re famous a selling point? Well, it gets attention, and that is the whole point of marketing a book.”

Trump had claimed “This is a politics free zone,” a point Veltman raised to the critic as the “romance maven [questioned] the notion that this book could ever be non-political.”

Wendell contended, “Everything about this concept is political. From the names on the cover to the fact that it’s a romance — because romance is political. Who gets to have a happy ending? Whose marriage is legally recognized? Who can be themselves safely?”

Noting the likelihood that other TDS sufferers could flock to the project, one social media user weighed in, “Look at Trump creating jobs for women….”
