Cohen reveals the ‘darkness’ of working for Trump in startling court speech: I have been living in mental prison

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen addressed the court prior to his sentencing Wednesday.

“I take full responsibility for each act that I pled guilty to,” said Cohen. “The personal ones for me and for the President of the United States of America” he added.

“I have been living in a personal and mental incarceration ever since the day that I accepted the offer to work for a real estate mogul whose business acumen that I deeply admired,” Cohen said.

He continued his tirade against the President.

“Recently the president tweeted a statement calling me weak and it was correct but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds,” Cohen said.

“Today is one of the most meaningful days of my life. The irony is that today I get my freedom back,” Cohen told the court. “Blind loyalty to this man [Trump] led me to choose a path of darkness over light.”

Although Cohen agreed to collaborate with investigators, prosecutors with the Southern District of New York recommended a lengthy prison sentence.

In the past, Cohen—who worked as Trump’s fixer for years—had pledged to take a “bullet” for the president.

Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental fitness just draw attention to his own problems: Joy Reid panel

Published

on

MSNBC host Joy Reid gave some helpful advice to President Donald Trump and his children, who frequently attack former Vice President Joe Biden for his mental health: It makes you look worse.

Speaking to her closing Wednesday panel with Jason Johnson and Howard Fineman, Reid showed a super-cut of Trump's knack for getting words wrong, not knowing how to pronounce simple things, slurring his words, stumbling down the stairs, not knowing where to go, dragging his feet and more.

"Well, you know, my pretext for all my students this fall will be: person, woman, man, camera, tv, and if they can do that, I know they're at least as smart as the president," joked Johnson. "Here's the thing. Joe Biden demonstrated that he literally can ride a bike and do something else at the same time. Like, I have always thought the argument that Joe Biden has lost a step or has some sort of mental deficiency was a complete lie. It's Republicans just projecting. What's important to remember is that no matter how much they spout this nonsense, every single time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he looks worse. There is nothing Joe Biden can say that is more foolish or incoherent than Donald Trump in the middle of a substantive interview."

Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?

Published

on

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
