Mary Trump has a problem with one of Savannah Guthrie's questions for her uncle.

During President Trump's Thursday town hall with NBC News, Guthrie asked Trump about his questionable tweets and retweets furthering far-right conspiracy theories. Trump tried to defend some of them as "retweets," saying he'll "put it out there, people can decide for themselves." "I don't get that. You're the president! You're not like someone's crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever," Guthrie responded.

Mary Trump, the president's niece who publicly demolished him in a tell-all memoir out earlier this year, had a quick rebuttal.

While she stayed silent through the 2016 election and most of Trump's presidency, Mary Trump told the story of how her family "created the world's most dangerous man" in her memoir, and even released recordings of other family members secretly disparaging the president.
