In American politics, it is completely expected that the rhetoric and the rampaging egos of the DC Swamp will flair up in election years.
This has always been the case, and it’s a part of the drama of our democratic system. We have often allowed our political process to lull us into complacency in the so-called “off-season”…at least in the past. Midterm elections have never been as focal and mainstream as they are in 2018, thanks in no small part to the lunacy of the 24 hour news cycle.
Now, to amplify all of this noise with the power of a thousand stadiums, we have a political circus whose ringleader is undoubtedly the most unconventional president in modern history, if not ever. The revolving cast of characters that surrounded him prior to landing in the Oval Office were no ordinary gaggle of odd men out, either, as epitomized by the behavior of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
Cohen, now fully immersed in the nation’s psyche, is reaching into an age-old bag of tricks in order to attempt a media coup against the President’s electoral aspirations.
Michael Cohen claimed that President Donald Trump used racist language in several private conversations with him during the time he worked as Trump’s personal lawyer and “fixer.”
In an interview with Vanity Fair that published Friday, Cohen recalled four times that Trump made denigrating comments to him about black people.CNN has confirmed from a source close to Cohen that the Vanity Fair story and quotes are accurate. The White House did not respond to Vanity Fair’s multiple requests for comment. CNN has also reached out to the White House for comment.Cohen alleged that Trump made a disparaging comment about African-American voters when they were discussing the turnout for one of his 2016 campaign rallies.
