Cohn was a lawyer and friend of Trump’s when he was younger.
Cohn was a pure maggot, serving as Joe McCarthy’s chief counsel during the infamous Army-McCarthy hearings.
He was also a big pal of Roger Stone, another Trump apologist.
Stone says of Cohn, “He was interested in power and access.”
Stephen Miller, Trump’s bizarre excuse for a “senior policy adviser” is the new Roy Cohn, willing to say or do anything to make his boss look good.
“Scorched earth” doesn’t begin to describe Miller.
Roy Cohn was gay and conservative Republican and former US senator Alan Simpson has pointed out, “The so-called ‘Red Scare’ has been the main focus of most historians of that period of time. [1950s] A lesser-known element … and one that harmed far more people was the witch-hunt McCarthy and others conducted against homosexuals.”
Cohn’s own sexuality didn’t keep him from destroying the lives of other gays.
For Cohn and people like him, nothing will stand in the way of access to power and prestige.
David Marcus, Cohn’s cousin, thinks he was attracted to Trump saying, “Something about Roy’s self-hating-Jewish persona drew him to fair-haired boys.”
Trump has surrounded himself with people like Miller or should we say they are flies being drawn to a pile of dung, fair-haired or not?
