congressional hearings

“He’s a conman and racist” Michael Cohen called his former boss, President Donald Trump.


In sworn testimony before Congress yesterday, Michael Cohen former attorney dubbed “Donald Trump’s fixer” called his former boss, President Trump, a conman and racist.

To back up his claims that the President is a racist, Cohen recalled a statement Trump made about Black Chicago residents.

“While we were once driving through a struggling neighborhood in Chicago, he commented that only Black people could live that way,” Cohen said in a prepared statement before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

“And he told me that Black people would never vote for him because they were too stupid,” Cohen added. “And yet I continued to work for him.”

Cohen recalled other incidents in his prepared statement.

“Mr. Trump is a racist,” he said. “The country has seen Mr. Trump court white supremacists and bigots. You have heard him call poorer countries ‘shitholes.’ In private, he is even worse.

“He once asked me if I could name a country run by a Black person that wasn’t a ‘shithole,'” Cohen said. “This was when Barack Obama was president of the United States.”

House Republicans attacked Cohen who was convicted last year of lying to Congress about a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen testified on Wednesday that he lied to protect Mr. Trump.

Wednesday was day 2 of three consecutive days of congressional appearances for Cohen. The disbarred former lawyer will appear before the House Intelligence Committee where he will speak in private on Thursday.

  1. He said “Only black people can live that way” Oh really? So we are all savages looking to kill and destroy each other? Has he never heard of affluent African American neighborhoods like Ladera Heights and View Park–Windsor Hills, California, Olympia Fields, Illinois, Wheatley Heights, New York or Kettering, MD where it is low crime, low poverty and over 40% of the population have Bachelors Degrees? probably not, because he’s too busy being a bigot.

    Hollywood made white poor glamorous. Take for instant the waltons out there in the woods with all them kids everybody all happy n singing n having no problems. Aint worried about bills or having enuf 2 eat. Kids go play deep in the woods n dont have 2 worry about being raped or kidnapped by another white man.Whereas james on good times got 3 kids in a 2 bedroom apt cant keep a job n the kids cant go outside in their front yard without the fear of being shot or killed by another black man.

  3. Trump despises the poor and hate the middle class as do a lot of wealthy people. The type that are members at the invitation only country clubs. That’s their business to be exclusionary but the no civil servant especial the President of the USA cannot.
