‘The the biggest con job on the face of the Earth’: Tennessee Democrat drops the mic on Trump’s entire time in office

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, blunt-speaking Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen detailed all the ways President Donald Trump has enriched himself and his family since he was elected in 2016, calling it a “criminal enterprise run amok on the American people.”

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Cohen explained that Trump has no interest in serving the public and is only interested in cashing in for as long as he can.

He took particular aim at Trump’s involvement with the Saudis.

“In every action, he takes he’s making money for him and his family,” Cohen stated. “It’s that type of behavior which was really never a vision to be this obvious and outrageous when the founding fathers put the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution. This president has asked for no permission and he’s taken money from the Saudis in Trump Tower where they’ve got a big holding and at the Trump Hotels where they stay anytime they can. And he said publicly they have so much money, anything he had asked, they paid enormous amounts of money for his condos.”

Adding, “Trump’s interest trumps everything,” Cohen later said, “We have about 17 or 18 sponsors for the impeachment of the president and one of the basis is Emoluments Clause violations both foreign and domestic.”

“It’s about the money he makes from taking money for the government for trips to Mar-a-Lago and charging our Secret Service for golf carts and food and you name it,” he elaborated. “This is just a criminal enterprise run amok on the American people and the biggest con job on the face of the Earth.”

Hundreds of people had gathered in Times Square on Saturday, rugged up and ready to bunk down in freezing temperatures, in a campaign to raise funds for what organizers said was record homelessness globally.

Smith told the crowd that his Oscar-nominated role in "The Pursuit of Happyness" -- a 2007 biopic of a salesman forced to live on the streets of San Francisco with his young son -- was a "life-changing experience" that had allowed him to understand the misery of poverty.

Here are 5 reasons to suspect Jesus never existed

Most antiquities scholars think that the New Testament gospels are “mythologized history.”  In other words, based on the evidence available they think that around the start of the first century a controversial Jewish rabbi named Yeshua ben Yosef gathered a following and his life and teachings provided the seed that grew into Christianity. At the same time, these scholars acknowledge that many Bible stories like the virgin birth, miracles, resurrection, and women at the tomb borrow and rework mythic themes that were common in the Ancient Near East, much the way that screenwriters base new movies on old familiar tropes or plot elements. In this view, a “historical Jesus” became mythologized.
