    What a day!

    Cohen is reading his final remarks… Pretty sure that TV Man is glued to some TV somewhere. So are Don Jr., Eric, and others.

      Way to go, meta!

    • February 28, 2019 at 1:27 am

      Only explanation is that he is referencing Trump’s behavior toward his children and wife. Other than that, have no idea meta.
      Would be worthwhile for someone to ask him. My sense, after watching today, is that he wouldn’t lie.

      • February 28, 2019 at 8:04 am

        It may simply be a case of cognitive dissonance. I’m saying I’m just not clear how he can say he’s seen and carried out the essential insistent brutality of mobster Trump, even suggest that there will be violence if Trump is not re-elected, and then be so perfectly sure about Trump never engaging in domestic violence. I’m also keeping in mind the well defined and exhibited sadism that runs through Trump’s narcissism and the manifestation that we see not only in the sick manipulation of emotions at his hate rallies but in policies such as the kidnapping, caging and trafficking of toddlers ripped from their parent’s arms. Cohen sees Trump as charismatic and Melania as a nice sympathetic figure but we’ve also seen a nasty brutal side of her as well. So it’s like trying to understand a crime syndicate full of cruel misfits and misanthropes centered on power and money.

          As one who has been there I can honestly say most people are totally unaware of those who commit domestic violence. And it may sound classist of me, but those who are richer and better connected have the ability to hide it even more, and so do their victims. I was raised in a family where the unspoken motto was “look good at all costs” and it made it easy for my husband to abuse and me to not tell a soul. And it doesn’t have to be physical violence where you can see it. Mine was also emotional and sexual, things that don’t show in public, even to best friends. Just looking at all the rest he has done I have been sure for quite a while that he is an abuser. So no need to keep working to square the statements, meta.

          • February 28, 2019 at 11:21 am

            My heart goes out to you, cd, and thank you for speaking the truth about domestic violence. I don’t know how anybody could look at Trump’s sorry ugly criminal life and think they know the depth of his viscousness and cruelty. He’s raped young girls with his friend Epstein for chrissakes. He is a SADIST.

        • February 28, 2019 at 12:03 pm

          Understood, of course, meta. Perhaps cd’s tragic personal insights below are the appropriate ‘lens’ through which to view Cohen’s statements.

          We’ll likely never know. Was just trying, probably incorrectly, to be open to the chance he was being honest in what he actually observed rather than what he might have reasonably conjectured.

  22. February 28, 2019 at 1:42 am

    Cohen has ZERO upside for ever telling another lie.

    Big thanks: Cohen could’ve walked away without bringing to Congress the 2017 checks signed by Trump = the Smoking gun.
    Donny Deutsch on Lawrence brought it home about common NY knowledge; the slimey, mafiesque Trump Organization business extorting, inflating, laundering, tax and bank fraud, and using a fixer (Cohen 500 times) to threaten anyone who gets in the way.
    -Cohen emphasized that EVERYTHING goes through Trump.
    -Trump told Cohen that running for president was “The greatest infomercial in American political history”.
    -Right now the Oval is an extension of the Trump Organization.
    -Remove slime bag.
    -RICO them all.

  34. February 28, 2019 at 11:39 am

    Until recently Cohen had a prominent leadership role with the Republican National Committee. He’s their boy no matter how much they distract.
    Yesterday he warned gop about covering for Trump and what happens when you let him own you. But what think you about the following?
    Cohen: “I fear if he loses the election in 2020 that there will never be a peaceful transition of power”.
    -Did Cohen have a conversation with the little russian on this topic?

  35. February 28, 2019 at 11:45 am

    When I saw our local news station FALSELY announce that the hearing yesterday would include the topic of Russian collusion:
    – I knew Dicktraitor would then fake claim that Cohen’s testimony had cleared him. He did.

  37. February 28, 2019 at 12:10 pm

    -Kushner met with fellow sleazebag bin Salman yesterday.
    Meanwhile Dicktraitor missed the Feb 8 deadline to report, condemn or implicate bin Salman on the VILE murder of journalist Mr. Kashoggi. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/jared-kushner-saudi-mohammed-bin-salman-cohen-testimony-trump-jamal-khashoggi-a8800441.html

  38. February 28, 2019 at 12:10 pm

    Yesterday did it for me. I think Cohen is absolutely correct about what Trump will do if he is allowed to remain in office and is defeated in 2020. He must be removed and the risk of not proceeding with Impeachment now is simply unacceptable.

    ‘Trump-Kim…Abe-Kim’: The guy’s name is Kim Jong-Un. What’s the media doing with his first name?
    Trump just walked out of the Summit.
    You know the routine: 1) charm offensive 2) demand/denigrate (omitted here) 3) walk out 4) say you won/no collusion.
    Yesterday president lovestruck said the dastardly duo would “be together a lot.”

      This whole thing was a embarrassment yesterday, to allow herself to be used like that by that racist Mark Meadows. Wonder why Meadows didn’t get those two black women who used to be at Trump’s rallies and on Fox all the time.

        Just checked the story in the tweet and looks like she’s a trump appointee – so maybe The Hatch Act doesn’t apply. But sounds like the way she participated will still get her in hot water.

    Apologies for some bitter name calling. Am so sleepless and outraged by the callous, unexplained, life-threatening treatment of infants and children by this illegitimate Administration. Where is the dire urgency to end it? We must face the reality that here in the United States children are being subjucated and senselessly damaged. They find themselves worthless and at the whim of strangers through no fault of their own. Trump goes all out to block non-Americans at the border, steals thousands of children, then fans them out across the country and holds them inside the borders indefinitely. Come on!

    • March 1, 2019 at 10:24 am

      Rep Karen Bass this week on Rachel offered no comment or hope on the thousands taken since January 2017 = even prior to the unmet ACLU action. At least 3,000 children. Ongoing reports of abuse, sexual assault, deaths, drugging, adoption without consent and probable trafficking. Where are the children? Last year we saw photos of groups of girls walking from one city location to another in the middle of the night in NY. And being transported on planes. Where are they now? Are these kidnapped children far right political pawns, slaves, what?

    • March 1, 2019 at 10:25 am

      A friend told me of an an ICE officer who couldn’t bring herself to say the word “children”. She would only sneeringly refer to the children as UAMs (unaccompanied minors). The interviewer finally got her to say the word, but with such hatred. And these are the people taking care of unprotected, often pre-verbal children. A forgiving person by nature – I will never forgive any of this.
      Why, why, why is it still going on?

      • March 1, 2019 at 10:46 am

        i know how you feel…my heart breaks for the children and their families…the good thing is that they are holding hearings…i hope that soon we will hear more about this
