    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A tell-all by Mary Trump, President Trump's niece, will be released to the masses on July 14, but multiple media outlets released portions of the book Tuesday -- and these excerpts do not paint a flattering picture of the president.

    So it comes as no surprise that White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed the book during a gaggle with reporters Tuesday. 

    "It's a book of falsehoods," she said. "It's ridiculous, absurd allegations that have absolute no bearing in truth. Have yet to see the book, but it is a book of falsehoods."

    Here are some revelations from "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World's Most Dangerous Man," gathered from The New York TimesThe Washington Post and USA Today:

    1. TRUMP CHEATED ON HIS SAT

    Trump paid someone to take his SAT on his behalf, Mary writes. The high score that the test-taker received ultimately helped Trump get accepted to the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business.

    2. TRUMP TOLD MELANIA THAT MARY HAD A DRUG PROBLEM -- SHE DIDN'T

    When Trump introduced Mary to Melania in 1998, he told her that his niece had dropped out of college and came back with a drug problem. Mary Trump writes she did indeed drop out of school, but she did not have a drug problem. Why did he say that? See below...

    3. TRUMP ENLISTED MARY TO WRITE A BOOK --  BUT NEVER PAID HER 

    During the 1990s Trump asked Mary to ghost write his book, "The Art of the Comeback."  But her never paid her -- and he eventually sent someone else to to fire her from the project, Mary writes.

    "By conflating my dropping out of college and his hiring me to write his book (while throwing in a fictional drug addiction), he concocted a better story that somehow had him playing the role of my savior," Mary writes.

    4. TRUMP'S SISTER AT THE START OF HIS CAMPAIGN: HE'LL NEVER GET ELECTED

    Trump's sister Maryanne Trump Barry, a retired federal appeals court judge, never thought her brother would see the inside of the Oval Office.

    “He’s a clown — this will never happen," Mary Trump quotes her aunt as saying to her in 2015, shortly after Donald Trump announced he was entering the race for the White House.

    5. TRUMP'S SISTER SHOCKED THAT EVANGELICALS SUPPORTED HER BROTHER

    Maryanne also was confused that her brother -- admittedly, not the most moral individual -- would have the support of evangelical Christians.

    “The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there,” Mary quotes her aunt as saying. “It’s mind boggling. But that’s all about his base. He has no principles. None!”

    6. MARY: TRUST ME, I'M A PSYCHOLOGIST .... DONALD TRUMP'S "PATHOLOGIES ARE SO COMPLEX .... HIS EGO IS A FRAGILE THING"

    Mary, a clinical psychologist, writes that the president has all nine clinical criteria for being a narcissist. And even then, she writes, that doesn't encapsulate all of his mental health issues.

    “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.”

    She writes the he is "much as he was at three years old: Incapable of growing, learning, or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in and synthesize information .... Nothing is ever enough," she writes. "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 that he is nothing of what he claims to be."

    7. DONALD TRUMP CAN'T TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF

    "Donald has been institutionalized for most of his adult life, so there is no way to know how he would thrive, or even survive, on his own in the real world," Mary Trump writes.
