The Cohen Hearings: Is This Who We Are?

I’ve spent most of the day watching Michael Cohen give testimony.

He seems tormented and determined to redeem himself.

This felt like a day of reckoning for Michael Cohen and the American people.

The President represents the People; and our ‘ethos’ as a People is an expression of who we are as individuals.

Donald Trump is a sadistic crook: is that who we are as individuals?

 

“When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked: In 2019, what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact? Did we stand on the sidelines and say nothing?”  Rep. Elijah Cummings, February 22, 2019

 

I’ve gathered segments of Cohen’s testimony from different news outlets
for the sake of comparison.

And because I can’t resist:

Dolls: He Calls the Hotline

Bobby has clearly had it.

He calls the hotline:

Bobby: I’m so depressed I don’t know what to do;

Bob: Sounds like you’re feeling depressed.

Bobby: Yeah. I think I’m gonna kill myself.

Bob: Sounds like you’re thinking of suicide.

Bobby: Yeah–My dick fell off in the shower.

Bob:  Sounds like you need to watch what you eat.

Bobby is a gash in the arm of God, lost as he segues
to a regrettable death.

“Try not to think about it,” says Bob, “It’s in Robs hands now.”

Rob’s Weekly Wrap-up 02/15-02/22

This week started with much ado about Trump’s Fake Emergency followed by the stark midweek revelation from Andrew McCabe that trump is a suspected enemy agent, at best, unwitting. In the meantime North Carolina gets a new congressional election, the FBI arrested a violent white supremacist for planning to unleash a chemical weapons attack against everyone on Trump’s political hit list, a judge gagged Roger Stone and Robert Mueller is and is not soon to release his report on #TrumpRussia, maybe.

On a personal note, therapy is rough as I come to terms with the years I lost to my illness.
