I just read Michael Cohen’s new Tell-All about his years as Donald Trump’s “fixer”. It is called Unfaithful: The True Story of President Donald J. Trump’s Former Personal Attorney. Much of the book is that Cohen skinned himself as a lackey who happily performed Trump’s commandment, even knowing he was being asked to lie, cheat, or cover up Trump’s wrongdoings. He was a lawyer and showed no respect for the law. His job for Trump was to twist the law to help Trump and silence those who claimed Trump wronged them.
The book has a morbid fascination. It confirms everything Trump’s most rabid critics have said about him. He lies whenever it suits his purpose and he expects his top executives to lie for him without hesitation. He is ruthless, amoral, cynical and completely absorbed in himself. Everyone else in the world is just an instrument to drive their self-enlargement.
He despises the working people who form his base. He pretended to be a Christian in order to attract evangelical leaders who met with him at Trump Tower and blessed him with a “laying on of hands” ceremony. As soon as they left his presence, he mocked them. He has no religious beliefs at all. He’s obsessed with hating Obama; He even hired someone to impersonate Obama so he could pour out his anger on the actor. Trump’s ticket into politics was obstetrics; He made up a story about sending investigators to Hawaii to see if Obama was an American citizen. He promised to publish the results. He never did. Claiming Obama’s success in life was entirely due to positive action, he implied that Obama was a mediocre student. Meanwhile, he hired Cohen to see to it that his own academic records from high school, college, and graduate school were never published.
When asked why he didn’t convict the Saudi government of the murder of journalist Jamaal Khashoggi, Trump said, “What the hell do I care? He shouldn’t have written what he did. He should have shut up. «So much for freedom of the press.
Cohen spends much of the book explaining his attraction to Trump, who he knew was a scam. Trump demanded absolute and complete loyalty, and Cohen gave it to him like a puppy. Cohen admitted he was drawn to Trump’s insolence, money, power, fame, flair, and the excitement of being in a daily circus of chaos and drama.
Cohen’s fascination with Trump is hinted at by his description of his youth. He grew up in an affluent suburb on Long Island, New York. His father was a refugee who became a doctor. Young Michael wasn’t interested in school except to get through. What he liked best was hanging out at his uncle’s club in Brooklyn, El Caribe, who was a favorite of the Mafia characters. They were tough and bold. They carried guns. He admired her coolness, her wealth, her power. He writes about an incident in which a wise man took off his bathing suit in the middle of the club’s swimming pool, which was full of women and children. The tough guys told the villain to put on his suit. he did not do it. Then one of them pulled out a gun and shot him in the butt. Blood streaked the water. When the police arrived, nobody knew anything, nobody saw it. Cohen enjoyed being armed with a gun on his belt as a Trump executive, another in an ankle holster. He says Trump is also armed.
We learn that Trump regularly ridicules Don Jr. in front of other people. He thinks Don Jr. is a fool and a loser. Don Jr. takes his father’s insults and defeats in silence; he is used to his contempt. Tiffany, the only child of Marla Maples, is treated as an outsider by her half-siblings. Jared is an arrogant snob. According to Cohen, Trump’s first campaign manager in 2016, Corey Lewandowski, was drunk and had an affair with Hope Hicks.
Trump is very boastful about his sexual prowess. He believes he can have any woman he wants. Cohen recalls a day he went swimming with his family at Trump’s New Jersey Golf Club. Trump spotted a young woman on one of his tennis courts and said, “Look at that piece of ass. I would love some of this. “Cohen was ashamed. It was his 15 year old daughter. Cohen was too on his back to object.
If you love hearing stories about how Trump managed to outsmart others and stiffen the little boys, you will find plenty to enjoy. For Trump, the “art of the deal” was to deceive people with millions of dollars. Contractors and subcontractors working on Trump properties were fortunate enough to get 20% of what Trump owed them. Anyone who threatened to sue him was threatened with a counter-suit that would bankrupt them. Who wants to be sued by a deep pocket billionaire?
Michael Cohen is in jail. It’s hard to feel sorry for him. He chose his destiny. As a young man, he admired gangsters and loved being with ruthless thugs. In the Trump world, he found the environment in which he flourished and provided the muscles and threats to force people to retreat if Trump cheated on them.
He’s less interesting than the megastar he lived in orbit: a liar, a cheat, a cheat, a narcissist, a man with no ethics, morals or conscience. Trump drew moths to his flame and Cohen was burned.
