(TMU) – The US President’s son, Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly alarmed by his father’s behavior since he has been diagnosed with COVID-19. According to Vanity Fair‘s Gabriel Sherman, sources close to the president say that his son wants to stage an intervention about how he has reacted to the diagnosis.

“Don Jr. has said he wants to stage an intervention, but Jared and Ivanka keep telling Trump how great he’s doing. Don said, ‘I’m not going to be the only one to tell him he’s acting crazy,’” one source close to the Trump family told Sherman.

Although Ivanka and Jared were initially supportive of the president’s attitude, they are now starting to have concerns about his tweets. They are also worried that voters might but unhappy with the cavalier response that he has had in the face of a COVID diagnosis.

“They’re all worried. They’ve tried to get him to stop tweeting,” another source told Sherman.

It is unclear what the state of the president’s health actually is, and media sources on both sides of the aisle continue to speculate according to their own political bias. However, if Trump was very sick, it is highly unlikely that he would want anyone to know that he is struggling.

Mary Trump, the president’s estranged niece, who is currently suing the Trump family, and recently released a book detailing the family’s secrets, says that illness was seen as unacceptable in the Trump household. Mary Trump told NPR that many members of the Trump family perceive any kind of illness as an “unforgivable weakness.”

“That’s why [the U.S. is] in the horrible place we’re in, because he cannot admit to the weakness of being ill or of other people being ill,” she explained.

Mary Trump’s father, Fred Trump Jr., was rejected by the family because he struggled with depression and alcoholic, which carried even more shame in the family because they were mental illnesses.

“In my family [it] was treated like a moral failing,” she says.

According to a Trump family friend, Trump’s father, Fred Trump Sr., insisted on working while he had Alzheimer’s disease and wasn’t entirely aware of what was going on around him.

She also said that her great-grandfather, Donald Trump’s grandfather, died from the flu during the 1918 flu pandemic.

First of all, what’s fascinating is I had no idea that my great-grandfather had died during the 1918 flu pandemic from the flu until I read about it somewhere a couple of years ago. And Donald also seems to have forgotten about that, which is incredible, considering it’s a pretty fascinating historical detail in the family,” Mary explained.

Mary also said that toxic positive thinking played a role in her family’s cold nature.

“So between that and my grandfather’s adherence to Norman Vincent Peale’s power of positive thinking, which he took to such an extreme level that it was toxic because it left no room for expressions of what he considered negativity of any kind, you know, sadness, despair, being physically ill,” she explained.
