Here we all are again.
First. Michael Cohen was in the White House next to his main man Donald Trump, and now, he is on the bestsellers list telling what he says is “the inside story of the real President Trump” in his DISLOYAL memoir.
The book is due on on September 8, 2020, and the man who helped get Trump elected is now very much trying to not help him get elected again.
Should we give him a sigh, applause maybe with a weak horn to get the parade started? Get rid of the horn.
Sure. We all want the details, but coming from a man who also technically betray the whole country in order to gain the Trump win? I’ll pass, but for kicks, let’s continue.
Breaking down the Amazon blurb, “Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons are buried.” Okay, Mike. Since ya know and knew, you choose to do this now?
Cohen is revealing only now that Trump is a racist who had “racist rants against President Obama, Nelson Mandela and black and Hispanic people in general.”
This isn’t news. It’s older than dirt.
What would be news is what did the fixer Michael Cohen do about it once he found out Trump was a racist, or did Michael Cohen participate, too, since he heard it all? That is the question.
If you stand around a racist and you laugh at his racist jokes then you may also be a racist and may also be the joke.
Or how about this one in the blurb – “He shows Trump’s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate, mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul—a man who courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to the common man, but then rips off small business owners, a con man who will do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the cost to his family, his associates, or his country.”
Pot calling the kettle a bit?
And here’s the best part of the blurb – “At the heart of Disloyal, we see how Cohen came under the spell of his charismatic “Boss” and, as a result, lost all sense of his moral compass.”
So Trump is a warlock? Believable. Are his “spells” that powerful though? I doubt it. The blurb would sound more believable if written like this: Cohen was a willing participant of his Boss since their moral compasses were so similar.
See how that gives it more non-fiction flavor?
a feather the devil flock together.
