Comedian Kathy Griffin had Mary Trump wincing after she detailed one thing about Mary Trump’s uncle, Donald Trump, that she believes “doesn’t really get enough press.”
Griffin claimed the former president had “a distinct smell” when she spent time with him during appearances she made as a guest during challenges on his “Apprentice” business reality television show.
“It’s like body odor with kind of like a scented makeup products,” Griffin recalled on “The Mary Trump Show” podcast.
“But you can smell the hair products even outdoors,” she added.

Mary Trump grimaced at the description of her uncle, of whom she has become a fierce critic.
”Don’t make that face! I’m just being honest. I know,” Griffin responded in a video shared online by Mediaite.
Mary Trump lightheartedly suggested someone channel her uncle’s fragrance into a scented candle. “That’ll fly off the shelves at Christmas,” she joked.
After all, the former president has fundraised off his mug shot that was taken following his arrest in Georgia on charges of trying to subvert the 2020 election results in the state. And he wouldn’t be the first to market a curious candle scent: Actor Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness brand Goop sells a candle called “This Smells Like My Vagina.”
Griffin faced backlash in 2017 for posing with what resembled the bloody head of Trump in a photo shoot, over which she was questioned by the Secret Service.
