Mary Trump has revealed what looks like her uncle Donald’s villain origin story—and it turns out the 77-year-old former leader of the free world still ‘pouts’ about it.

In a TikTok, Mary Trump, who’s been outspoken about her dislike for her uncle for quite some time, recounts a family story that is told at least once a year on “Thanksgiving or Christmas” and leaves her uncle Donald Trump angry every single time.

The story is meant to explain Donald Trump’s temper tantrums, but reveals so much more about his childhood. The story is a family tale of a dinner between Donald Trump and his four siblings, as his mother, Mary Anne, cooked in the kitchen. It ends with a frustrated sibling smashing a plate of potatoes over Donald’s head.

“He’s thrown temper tantrums, during which he throws things, including the plate, the food, the tablecloth. I have an idea that I might understand where this comes from,” begins niece Mary Trump.

“The connection between Donald Trump and humiliation [began] when he was five years old. My dad [Fred Trump Jr.] would have been 13 or 14. [Donald] was tormenting his brother Robert, one of his favorite things to do… and Robert was getting more and more upset, which made Donald want to torment him even more.”

“My dad and my aunt Marianne, who was the oldest, tried everything they could think of to try and get Donald to stop doing what he was doing,” Mary continues, explaining that the family was annoyed and felt bad for Robert.

“Having no other solution to the problem, he picked up the bowl of mashed potatoes that my grandmother put on the table… and dumped it on Donald’s head.”

Mary didn’t quite make clear which sibling was annoyed enough to overturn the plate of potatoes, but she does go on to say that the whole family laughed at the situation, except Donald.

“One of the funniest things about her doing this… was Donald’s reaction. He would sit at the table, arms crossed, head down, pout on his face, exactly like the pout that must’ve been on his face when he was five.”

“What’s particularly amusing though is that Maryanne told this story in 2017, when all of us were at the White House to celebrate her birthday. We were sitting in the residential dining room, and as she was giving her speech, she brought up the famous mashed potato story, and we all laughed. Except Donald. Who was the leader of the free world at the time.”

“He sat there, arms crossed, eyes down, and scowling. It’s one of my favorite things that’s ever happened. So that’s it, the origin story of Donald Trump,” finishes Mary. She added that the story was often told as a tip of the hat to her father, who is no longer with them.

Mary’s story backs up testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, once a top aide to Donald Trump, who told the January 6 committee that Donald got so mad at then-Attorney General William Barr that he threw his whole plate. “There was ketchup dripping down the wall and a shattered porcelain plate on the floor,” Hutchinson testified.

Hutchinson later told Jimmy Kimmel that Donald throws his food at someone at least once or twice a week to an uproarious audience.

Replying to @Moby this is becoming a mashed potato account, and I think I’m ok with that. Part 1 of 2 #mashedpotatoes #🥔
