The host of “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC on Thursday read excerpts from Michael Cohen’s forthcoming book on his time working as Donald Trump’s lawyer and fixer.

The book, “Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump is set to be released before the November election.

Cohen released the forward to his book online, which describes allegations of deviant sex acts — and a backchannel to Vladimir Putin. On Thursday, the hashtags for “Urine Trouble Trump” and “Golden Showers Trump” trended on Twitter after Cohen’s allegations.

Cohen also described receiving hundreds of death threats after flipping on Trump.

“I urge you to really consider that fact: Trump has no true friends. He has lived his entire life avoiding and evading taking responsibility for his actions. He crushed or cheated all who stood in his way, but I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them. I was the one who most encouraged him to run for president in 2011, and then again in 2015, carefully orchestrating the famous trip down the escalator in Trump Tower for him to announce his candidacy,” Cohen wrote.

“When Trump wanted to reach Russian President Vladimir Putin, via a secret back channel, I was tasked with making the connection in my Keystone Kop fashion. I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners, lied to his wife Melania to hide his sexual infidelities, and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened Trump’s path to power. From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise—I was an active and eager participant,” he admitted.

“Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did. In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the real man, in strip clubs, shady business meetings, and in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really was: a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man,” Cohen explained.

Trump makes fun of Kamala Harris’ name during extended Fox & Friends rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump made fun of Sen. Kamala Harris' name during an appearance on "Fox & Friends."

The president called in to the show he apparently watches most mornings for a wide-ranging interview, where the hosts asked how he'll fare against Joe Biden in next week's debate.

"Well, look, I think he's a professional," Trump said. "I don't know if he's all there, but I think he's a professional. I have to assume that he's a professional and that he can debate. I don't understand what's going on, he doesn't seem to be answering questions, and he can't answer questions, and much worse a little while ago when he was on the stage with the Democrats, he couldn't do well. He did okay with Bernie [Sanders], it was sort of a tie. It was nothing great. I always say it wasn't Winston Churchill, but it was okay. He was horrible when he was debating the Democrats."

Lindsey Graham ‘is in danger of an upset’ loss: top elections forecaster

Published

on

Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) re-election campaign looks increasingly in peril, according to one of America's top elections forecasters.

The latest update from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics claims that Graham today "is in greater danger of an upset" than he was just weeks ago, which has led to a ratings change in Graham's race against Democratic rival Jamie Harrison from "likely R" to "leans R."

Among other things, the Center for Politics points to Harrison's gaudy fundraising numbers as too big to ignore.

Published

On Monday, The Washington Post reported that Kentucky state Sen. Robert Goforth has been indicted for strangulation and assault, after allegedly attacking a woman with an Ethernet cable.

"Earlier this year, a woman said Goforth, 44, strangled her with an Ethernet cable to the point where she had trouble breathing and threatened to 'hog tie' her, according to a police report reviewed by the newspaper," said the report. "The charges have renewed calls from local Democrats for Goforth, a staunch supporter of President Trump who had previously been accused of sexual assault, to resign from his seat. Neither he nor his attorney, Conrad Cessna, immediately responded to requests for comment from The Washington Post."
