Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) gave a harsh assessment of President Donald Trump, saying he is a “cold, strange man” who had no problem moving to Washington D.C. because he leaves no friends behind.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Cohen was unsparing in his assessment of the president.
Although he is a native of Memphis, Cohen said he is all too familiar with Trump.
After describing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as one of the few friends Trump has made in Washington, Cohen painted a portrait of Trump as a selfish, self-obsessed man.
“That’s why you have 17 people [Democrats] running for president,” Cohen explained. “They know we need a change, somebody the American people respect, somebody who might be able to have a pet in the White House because they’re not so self-absorbed that they can’t have anyone else around them that draws attention.”
“The man is a cold, cold, strange human being,” he continued. “He left New York and Trump Tower and never thought about what he left because he doesn’t have friends there. It’s all about him and titles. ”

Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court
Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault before getting down to the heart of the matter.
"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’
Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.
During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.
"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
