We have an African American and here she is…..


 

Could someone offer her a chair?

I think one of the reasons that black people loved Bill Clinton, is he knew black people, had black friends.  He and Hillary, didn’t seem out of place in a black church and didn’t need to bring a prop, when he spoke to people of color.

Unfortunately, the need of a prop is still a part of politics today.  There are some politicians, who believe they are more effective if they have a prop when they address a  crowd of people who do not resemble them ,to make those people comfortable.

Yesterday, North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows brought a prop.  In the form of Lynne Patton.   President Trump former Attorney Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee. Said  Trump is a racist who told him that African Americans were too stupid to vote for him.  Lynne Patton sole purpose was to tell the world, that she is black and as a black woman she would never work for a racist.

I was troubled as this black women stood in a sea of white faces.  I guess they didn’t have an extra chair.

No one in America, will ever question if our President is a racist.

” Ms Patton very presence offended nearly every woman of color”

Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts posed a question to Michael Cohen

“Would you agree that someone could deny rental units to African-Americans, lead the birther movement, refer to to the diaspora as ‘shithole countries,’ and refer to white supremacists as ‘fine people,’ have a black friend, and still be racist?”  Yes he answered.

 When it was Congresswoman  Rashida Tlaib of Michigan turn to speak, she went further.  “Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean they aren’t racist,” Tlaid said. “And it is insensitive, and some would even say that the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this committee”—here she took a heavy sigh—”is alone racist in itself.”

Congressman Meadows responded angrily, demanding Chairman Cummings strike the Congresswoman’s comment from the record.

Congressman Meadows double down by saying he wasn’t a racist, as his nieces and nephews are people of color.  Clearly the Congressman isn’t close to his family as its very unlikely they would approve the use a person of color as a prop.

Congressmen Meadows lives in a world where people would never work or support anyone who is racist sexist, or homophobic with one exception, if he were President or Congressman from North Carolina.  Some will remember back in 2012, he told his supporters that they were going to send President Obama home to Kenya or wherever it is?

Turns out, Michael Cohen was responsible for Trump hiring Mrs Patton.   Cohen told the Congressman that there were no black executives in the Trump Organization.

Remind me, it is 2019, right?

President Donald Trump’s “Worst Day Ever!”

A Very Dark Cloud will follow President Donald Trump as he enters the Civic Center in Charleston,West Virginia in a few minutes where he plans to encourage voters to support Republican Candidates in the midterm elections.

Just a few hours ago, his former campaign chairman was convicted by a Virginia jury of eight unrelated felonies: Five counts of felony tax fraud, one count of failing to report a foreign bank account, and two counts of bank fraud.  The 68 year old faces eighty years in jail.

Manafort  is due back in court in Washington next month in Washington for a second trial centered on allegations of lying to the FBI, money laundering and foreign lobbying.

Michael Cohen accepted plea in the United States District Court in New York where he pleaded guilty to multiple counts of tax evasion,bank fraud and breaking campaign finance laws.  He said that he arranged payments to two women“at the direction of the candidate” to secure their silence about affairs they said they had with Donald Trump.  He went on to say the payments were “for the principle purpose of influencing the election” 

Robert Mueller’s Witch Hunt has seen the conviction of Donald Trumps national security adviser Michael Flynn.   George Papadopoulos ,a former foreign policy adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign.   Alex van der Zwann at Dutch attorney he was charged for lying to federal investigators in the Russia probe.  California resident Richard Pinedo who pled guilty to using stolen identities to set up the bank accounts in February. Deputy Campaign Chairman Rick Gates and his business partner and his former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and his long time personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen. 

In the last few minutes in West Virginia. President Trump told reporters he feels “very badly” for him” (Paul Manafort) he called Manafort “a good man”   He  also said  the charges had “nothing to do with Russian collusion,” which he called “a witch hunt and a disgrace.”

??????????????

Will he go off script in West Virginia?  Will he forget to endorse the candidates? At 4am should we expect a Twitter Storm?  Will he call Michael Cohen a good man?

Its been one hell of a news day!  News at eleven?  How bout news in 15 minutes!

August 21, 2018 the day it sucked to be President Trump

Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former fixer, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to campaign finance and other charges. He made the extraordinary admission that he paid a pornographic actress “at the direction of the candidate,” referring to Mr. Trump, to secure her silence about an affair she said she had with Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen told a judge in United States District Court in Manhattan that the payment was “for the principal purpose of influencing the election” for president in 2016.

Mr. Cohen also pleaded guilty to multiple counts of tax evasion and bank fraud, bringing to a close a monthslong investigation by Manhattan federal prosecutors who examined his personal business dealings and his role in helping to arrange financial deals with women connected to Mr. Trump.

 Attack the Country/Raid Michael Cohen’s offices-its the same thing believe me!  

 “It’s a disgraceful situation. … I’ve been saying it for a long time. I have this witch hunt constantly going on.”

“It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense,” Trump declared. “It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”

“This is the most biased group of people, these people have the biggest conflicts of interest I’ve ever seen,” the president said. “Democrats all — or just about all, either Democrats or a couple of Republicans that worked for President Obama,” Trump said. “They’re not looking at the other side. They’re not looking at the Hillary Clinton.

 

 The Prez says the Democrats are after him

All the people involved are Proud Republicans most of whom HE appointed

 Attorney General Jeff Sessions who recused himself for the Russia Probe.  Robert Muller is a Republican ,Deputy General Rod Rosenstein

Last January,  Jeff Sessions appointed Geoffrey S. Berman to the office of the Southern District in New York . This office executed the search warrants and seized the privileged communications from Michael Cohen.  Mr. Berman is a former law partner of Rudolph W. Giuliani, a former New York mayor and a supporter of Mr. Trump.

Update: Geoffrey Berman was recused from the investigation before FBI agents raided Cohen’s offices and home.  Last year, President Trump personally interviewed Berman for the position. A President doesn’t normally interview potential candidates.  Trump Tower is in the Southern District. Berman donated $5400, to Trump’s Campaign.

Ohh Stormy! Image result for stormy danielsP

I’m not sure if President Obama or Hillary Clinton ever met  Stormy Daniels.  Michael Cohen knew her well enough to give her $130,000  just because.   He even took out a loan to pay her.  To get that loan, did he tell the bank, the money was for renovations or Stormy?

After weeks of being silent about the weather.  Last week the Prez told the press he didn’t know  any thing about a payment to Stormy?

“Storm Clouds”

Bank Fraud? Wire Fraud? Campaign Finance Violation? 

Banks don’t usually require much explanation from customers about how they use such credit lines. However, Cohen may have been asked to provide explanation for the large-dollar transfers he made when he moved the money to a shell company and then to a lawyer for Daniels.

To obtain a search warrant, prosecutors must convince a federal judge that agents are likely to discover evidence of criminal activity.

DAMM! DAMM! DAMM!

The Prez may have put the investigation into high gear when he said, he didn’t know anything about any payment to Stormy.   Leaving his mouth piece, vulnerable and possibly jeopardizing Cohen’s freedom and his career.   The problem for the prez, should he fire Muller, this investigation will continue.

 The Prez believes the raid on his attorney is like an attack to the country!
Okay!!
