I LOVE THIS. You guys are the bomb.
OMG. My first thought was “a racist green book” but I refused to put that in my post.
The Root didn’t brush over shit. Schubert put that speculation out there intentionally. If she had been in a court of law, she would have been called out for it. She cannot say with certainty what his mental state was.
Unrelated: your Kinja name is a great Gremlins reference. Kudos.
Overall, this testimony was enjoyable to watch if for no other reason than I liked the freshmen members of the House who stepped up and called their colleagues out for what they were doing—being dumb assholes.
Michael Cohen just told Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mi.) that he does not believe Donald Trump is acting in the best interest of the American people. He also acknowledged that just because a person has a black person working from them doesn’t mean they aren’t racist.
Do you want to get banned from the comments? 😂
I’m here for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if for no other reason than she is the Cardi B of Congress, Okurrrr?
She just rightfully called out the GOP reps for trotting out a black woman as a means of dispelling any idea that Donald Trump could be a racist—especially in light of the fact that we have seen him do it in real time on national television over and over again.
Michael Cohen just admitted that he hired someone to help rig polls in Donald Trump’s favor in 2014 and 2015, and he did so at Trump’s request.
Michael Cohen was already disbarred yesterday, so all of this discussion about whether this or that was ethical is irrelevant at this point. We need to discuss the information that he has, but the Republicans are wholly uninterested in that.
Cohen just told the committee that Donald Trump does not have a lovechild to his knowledge.
What does any of this matter, and why are they trying to use it as a means of discrediting his testimony?
Cohen just confirmed that Donald Trump lied when he said he did not know Felix Sater, a Russian-born businessman in Brooklyn.
I’m not sure why the focus is on how Cohen might get a book deal after this. People get book deals all the time after being involved in scandals. Can we please stick to the matter at hand?
Cohen has just admitted that the president’s usage of non-disclosure agreements is a means of silencing people and making then afraid to come forward with any information about him.
That was a crazy two hours of testimony. The Republicans are completely unhinged and not even trying to hide the fact that they are going to stand by their man no matter what.
And they seem to forget that Donald Trump is the biggest pathological liar of all.
I think Cohen just confirmed that Trump lied in order to get a bank loan to try and make a bid for the Buffalo Bills.
