Michael Cohen seems to be having an attack of his conscience. He is openly confirming President Trump’s racist rhetoric before he became the Commander-In-Chief.
There are certainly numerous occasions when Trump displayed his bigoted behavior, so why is Trump’s longtime lawyer now having a change of heart after years of tolerating his antics
In an interview with Vanity Fair published on Friday, Cohen said Trump commented while traveling to Chicago that Black leaders can only run “sh–hole” cities and countries.
“[Trump] said to me, ‘Name one country run by a Black person that’s not a sh–hole,’ and then he added, ‘Name one city,'” Cohen said.
Cohen explained that he told Trump at a meeting in Trump Tower during the 2016 election that his rally at the time “looked vanilla” on TV.
“That’s because Black people are too stupid to vote for me,” Trump responded.
In the past, Cohen even tweeted a statement, which read along the lines of “I can’t be racist because I have Black friends.” It referred to him actually being Jewish and not tolerating racism, which we know isn’t true.
Cohen explained: “I truly thought the office would change him.” But then he admitted that his acts have made things worse. His “change of heart” is stemming from delusional “hope” because an overtly racist and bigoted man deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Here are Trump’s Top 5 Racist Moments:
5. Trump’s Reaction to NFL Players Who Protest Against Police Brutality
As NFL protests picked up steam and more and more players refused to stand for the national anthem, Trump decided to chime in.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son-of-a-bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!'” Trump said, at a rally last year.
The players who took a knee were protesting police brutality and racism, after a number of high-profile cases where Black men had been shot and killed by police officers.
4. Trump Talking About His Money At Trump Plaza Casino During the ’80s
According to former President of Trump Plaza Casino, John O’Donnell, Trump once said: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
3. Mr. “Grab Them By The P-Word” Defines Who A Rapist Is
Despite the number of privileged white men being exposed for sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, Trump quickly criminalized amigos South of the Border with the following statement given during a speech:
“[Mexico] are sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists.”
2. Because America, Clearly, Doesn’t Have Issues, According to Trump
During immigration talks in the Oval Office in January, President Trump reportedly grew frustrated, using a crude description of Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, according to a report from The Washington Post.
“Why are we having all these people from sh–hole countries come here” Trump reportedly told lawmakers.
1. Trump Clearly Not Choosing the Rightful Winner of “The Apprentice” — Kwame Jackson
“Trump was explaining his back-and-forth about not picking Jackson,” Cohen said, in the Vanity Fair interview. Jackson, an African-American investment manager, is a graduate of Harvard Business School.
“[Trump] said, ‘There’s no way I can let this Black f-g win’,” Cohen alleged.
There are many people besides Cohen who have been complicit in allowing Trump’s shenanigans to continue.
