Lincoln Project Reads Excerpts of Mary Trump's Book About the President's Alleged Insecurities

The Lincoln Project, a political action committee dedicated to prevent President Donald Trump from getting reelected, read excerpts from Mary L. Trump's book Wednesday regarding the president's alleged insecurities.

The political action committee launched a series entitled Story Hour on Twitter, in which a man read passages from Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, written by Trump's niece.

"Donald, today, is much as he was at three-years-old, incapable of growing, learning, or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses and synthesize information," the reader stated, reading from the book. Mary L. Trump was born in 1965, nineteen years after the president.

"Donald's need for affirmation is so great he doesn't seem to notice that the largest groups of his supporters are people he wouldn't condescend to be seen with outside of a rally," the reader said.

"His deep-seated insecurities have created in him a black hole of need that constantly requires the light of compliments that disappears as soon as he's soaked it all in. This is far beyond garden-variety narcissism. Donald is not simply weak. His ego is a fragile thing that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down he is nothing of what he claims to be," the reader said.

The Lincoln Project super PAC stated on its website that it began its "nationwide movement with a singular mission: To defeat Donald Trump and Trumpism."

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to the president, and whose husband George Conway is a founder of the Lincoln Project, told reporters last week that books are generally not "fact checked."

"As for books generally, obviously, they're not fact checked—nobody's under oath. I know there's always this rush to slap credibility on whoever's getting the president that day," Conway said, adding that she thinks "family matters are family matters."

The president was critical of the Lincoln Project—which endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president—in the past, calling the group's leaders RINOs, meaning "Republicans in name only," a derogatory term used against Republicans who split with the party and side with Democrats.

After the super PAC released a May 4 ad critical of Trump entitled Mourning in America, a play on Ronald Reagan's Morning in America, the president said the group had "no imagination" and would be "a disgrace" to Abraham Lincoln.

"You see, these loser types don't care about 252 new Federal Judges, two great Supreme Court Justices, a rebuilt military, a protected Second Amendment, the biggest ever tax and regulation cuts, and much more," Trump said in a May 5 tweet, adding the groups founders, most of whom the president called out by name, were all "losers."

Newsweek reached out to the Lincoln Project and the president for comment, but did not receive a response back in time for publication.
