Yesterday morning, I watched the Cohen testify before the House that our president is a liar, a cheat, a racist, a fraud, and a huckster. He said that Donald Trump never planned on being president and saw the campaign as a way to further his brand.
And none of us were surprised.
Yet, it was fairly awful to hear those things from someone who knew him pretty well. Even though that Cohen himself is a world class pig. He’s clearly trying to figure out how to resuscitate his own image, so he can have a job after he goes to prison for three years. He no longer can practice law.
Will it make a difference? Is there enough info that can be used to impeach and convict the president?
Some say no, because Cohen said that the president was careful to never clearly state his intent to his lawyer. It was all implied.
And Trump’s followers were told by his media minions to not watch the testimony. It was stunning to hear his defenders in the House try to undermine Cohen and state their outrage. In my liberal bubble, I didn’t know even the names of the Representatives who defended him.
I missed the afternoon questions that came from the new hotshot representatives, like AOC and Tailb, but the buzz afterwards was positive. I hear they did well.
I simply don’t understand his supporters. I tried asked one about his defense of Trump and why he didn’t watch the testimony, but my question was quickly discarded in the name of family harmony.
Okay. Predictions. What’s going to happen next?
