    Trump is a con.

    • @Ash Roskell Fun fact: Sheldon Adelson – billionaire Casino mogul – shelled out around total $200m for Trump and GOP in 2016. Now, 4 years later, under Trump’s “leadership”, especially on pandemic response, Adelson’s casinos, convention centers, hotels are all but shuttered. On top of that, because of Trump’s anti-Chinese rhetoric, his businesses lost one of the big profit sources: Chinese high-rollers.

      A couple months ago it was reported that Adelson had a phone call with Trump. The call ended not very well: Trump angrily demanded more money but Adelson didn’t say yes.

      So I guess the moral of the story is, with Trump, billionaires can and will get conned.

    • Jis Yang conned from commie China we don’t want your business nor your slave labor

    • Smelly Fly hey stinky boi, I’m not Chinese. But I’ll say this. Casino, as business, is a legalized con. So what you say is stop conning Chinese and start conning American. That’ll make America great 👍. And it looks like you don’t want slave labor there because you want slave labor here. That’s what current white nationalist admin wants to do and YOU KNOW you want it too.

      A colossal Failure too!

    • you sound like con

  2. Donald Trump killing this country

    Atleast Cohen Admitted he lied, Trump still doesn’t have the GUTS to do so!

  4. Coming over to the light side must be a freeing feeling. Well done Mr Cohen.

    • @Jay “I’ll stay in the darkness” = I won’t remove my head from trumps rectum just yet, I’m enjoying it.

    • @Coma White if you say so it just seems rather funny that you all seem to be drinking the kool aid. Doesn’t it bother you that this comes out right before the election like the anonymous claim of disparaging troops I haven’t decided who to vote for but I will say that bidens choice for vp is not helping his cause nor is Nancy pelosi and before you act all high and mighty you assume I’m voting for Trump because I dislike Nancy pelosi that’s a bad assumption but enjoy your kool aid

    • @Coma White lmao wow you counting your chickens really early it’s almost like you think an election don’t matter but if you believe biden is the leader someone might wanna inform queen nancy

    • @Jay *ROFLMAO* This is another Faux News popular talking point, “Why is this all coming out now?!” It’s NOT. NONE of this is NEW. It’s been going on since 2015. SOME of us have been paying attention the whole time, and know that.

    • @Kaotiqua if you say so

  5. He went to jail for what Donald ordered him to do

  6. When Trump accuses Cohen of being a liar, he forgets that he’s the one who ordered the lies.

  7. Vindman didn’t lie no matter how much pressure he was under. You either have integrity or you don’t. Unfortunately the majority of Republicans don’t.

    • @john smith sorry. You didn’t listen to the testimony too well. Not only was Vindman listening on the telephone conversation, but he tried to more accurately report his remarks about what was said twice and it was censored twice and ultimately left out as well. Listening to a call as it happened qualifies as 1st hand knowledge to me. He also paid a heavy price for his honesty.

    • @Pay attention l think he was talking about Trump, not Vindman. Also, since there were no live depositions televised at any time, it would be hard to watch them, moron.

    • Kay O wake op

    • @Smelly Fly Apparently you love criminals, traitors, liars, conmen, and morons.

    • So by you standard, Cohen does not have integrity. All he said in this interview were lies. CNN gave him platform to tell more lies. Why?

  8. If I were Cohen, I’d show all my receipts and bring everyone down!

    Always remember who enabled all this: the GOP.
    Either it dies or US democracy does.

    • Remember who kept the chains on the blacks throughout history. Its been the dems with their crime bills and welfare states that destroyed the black household. Ive personally witnessed the destruction of these racist laws on poor communities. Locking up people for life for a lil baggie of whatever. Over policing my communities with over aggressive policies and prosecutors more than throwing the book at my friends and family

      Logan McLean Hi Russia 🇷🇺

    • Say the people burning the country down over criminals.

    • Sorry you never had a democracy,
      A country born out of corruption,can only give its citizens,the illusion of a democracy
      For years,there have been those that have actively,at every opportunity tried to deny the electorate their voting rights.
      Corruption has reached such a level,they are literally,taking away your ability the vote before your very eyes
      As for any other democrat rights you think you may have,go ask one of America’s keystone cops,I’m sure he’ll set you straight on that

    • Right you commie crap

  10. For his sake, I hope Louis DeJoy is watching this. Although, I think it might be too late for him.

    • Oh yes he there him under the bus yesterday, if I worked for him I would be worried, actually terrified

    • DeJoy is going down just like everyone else who works for Trump. He obviously didn’t read the book “Everything Trump touches, Dies”. So I guess Trump doesn’t surround himself with “all the best people”. The best people would have done their research and taken a pass on Trump’s job offer.

  11. *If you going to call me something at least have the decency to spell it right* nice one

  12. When is someone going to make the connection between what the GOP house committee did on Feb. 7th 2017 & trumps war on mail in ballots. It is obvious to me that trump/russia is planning to hack the now unprotected walk in voting machines on election day. This is why he is actually suing states that want to do ALL mail in voting..because he cant cheat at all in those states. Only mail in ballots are safe at this point. When the Russians change votes on election day…exactly as they have for Putin, what will Democrats be able to do? If we do not get our top tech people on this immediately…we will be stuck with a man we did not vote for….our first dictator.

    • You guys honestly have more conspiracy theories than the right and there’s a ton lol

    • Diebolt who make many of the voting machines, have been a big GOP contributor for decades.
      In my country we got rid of electronic voting and went back to paper and pencil for the entire nation, as it was shown in court that the government could not make the machines safe.

    • @RogerWilco IVANKA has a patent she recently got (in the past four years!) on voting machines (and coffins) in China. Those machines WILL be used in at least three states. There is a whole lot more to this, but the gist of it is, our elections are in danger. Too much to go into here, but feel free to ask questions.

      nadia mccall – Thank you as I was thinking back & thought she had.. With tRump..if he’s having a hissy about mail in voting- there’s a reason!!
      I’ve known him to be a despicable man the last 28-29 years!
      Have a good evening & stay safe❣️🌟

    • He stated publicly that if there is mail-in voting “the republicans will never win again”. All the journalists figured he meant because a lot of people don’t make it to the polls, for whatever reason, but the one group that always makes it are the older Republican-leaning people.

    Michael Cohen essentially wants accountability for people like Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Corey Lewandowski, Trumps lawyers, Hope Hicks (possible)., KellyAnne Conway, etc. Yes they all deserve to go to prison.

    • @Michael Humphrey Unlike Bill Clinton. Clinton did not pay up to the prostitute in the oval office. And when exposed, he committed perjury. Clinton treated his prostitute as a slave. Trump treated Stormy as an equal human being in a transaction with a contract.

    • Michael Humphrey | September 14, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

      🤣 @Ric L. You seem certain Trump did nothing untoward eh? You’re positive that in paying out hush money to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougall ensuring the continued viability of his Presidential campaign was not a violation of Campaign Finance Laws? 🙄

    • Michael Humphrey | September 14, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      Well at least Bill Clinton didn’t break Campaign Finance Laws @Ric L?

    • @Michael Humphrey Neither did Trump. There was no wrong doing in dealing with Stormy. He is innocent until proven guilty. Currently there is no evidence supporting that he is guilty. All you did is speculation.

    • A felon ,you come trash

    “Liar is l-i-a-r, if you’re going to call me something at least have the decency to spell it right.” SAVAGE

  16. Vote Joe Biden November 2020 / Vote Amy McGrath Kentucky November 2020

  17. Cohen really seems honestly contrite, but above all, hurt. Vile Trump’s treachery really broke his heart and his life!

    • oh no … he’s my Elvis, and his corner of his mouth is just like Elvis did. He can write, I hope he can sing too.@Richie Black

    • hee … you never lying???????????????????

    • Michael Biggins | September 9, 2020 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      Richie Black. Not by comparison to Trump; Cohen was just another pawn thrown under the bus. Trump, the vampire, sucks the life out of anybody and everybody that can benefit him: the MAGA morons, the sycophantic Republican Senators, the wanna be’s; all just SUCKERS, played for the fools they are …..

    • @Michael Biggins Cohen is not lying any more. He is telling absolute truth, nothing but truth, from now on.

    • Michael Biggins | September 13, 2020 at 4:51 PM | Reply

      Ric L He seems genuinely contrite; if so, I hope he is allowed to make amends as is appropriate and wish him well

  18. Trump: “Lier!” I am the best lier in the world, no one has ever seen before.

    • 👄It’d spelled “liar.”

      The TV Corporate news media lies. We have 80 years of evidence on film – From the 2800 nuclear detonations around the globe from 1945 to 2009 and the absence of this data in the Climate Science –

    • Kittykitty Katt | September 12, 2020 at 2:16 PM | Reply

      Hildebeast Clinton,
      What evidence do you have that the TV corporate news media lies? People like you are fascinating, but kind of frustrating too because most major news organizations try very hard to report on facts. They may also offer OPINION, which you may be mistaking for lies. Like when the Washington Post fact checkers report that Trump has told over 14,000 lies, that is a fact. One of their editorial writers may later say that Trump is one of the biggest liars to ever run for office, which is just their opinion. Maybe you think that qualifies as a lie, but it really is not.

    • Hildebeast Clinton | September 12, 2020 at 5:06 PM | Reply

      @Kittykitty Katt
      *Male and female are not the only genders.
      *Trump colluded with Russia, when in fact Democrats did.
      *People who burn, vandalize, loot, and assault are not rioters; they’re “protesters”.
      *Rich people aren’t paying enough in taxes. Never mind that X% (not to mention 2X%) of $1 million is greater than X% of $50,000.
      *If 55% of protesters are peaceful and 45% of protesters are violently rioting, then the protests are “mostly peaceful” according to the demoncrat media. But if 99.9% of police arrests are peaceful and %0.1 percent are violent, then all policemen are brutal oppressors and all police departments need to be abolished.

  19. That’s rich. the liar in chief, the king of liar’s who can’t even spell the word but accusing others of it.

    When the Trump administration calls Cohen a liar, ask yourselves: “On whose behalf was he lying?”

    • @Kaizaro123 Yes, Hillary. Since Cohen is a liar, why do you believe what he said? You should think the opposite every time Cohen opens his mouth. When Cohen says Trump is a liar, you should think exactly the opposite. Otherwise you fall into a liar’s trap. Well, you are happy and willing to fall into liar’s trap.

    • If you are happy with Cohen’s lie, you are a liar, too.

    • @Ric L I’m sorry, how old are you? Is this your sincere view on the issue, that we should think the opposite every time Cohen speaks? For real? Because I have far better things to be doing 3with my time.

    • @Kaizaro123 If you have far better things to do, you should not even listen to him. The fact that you listened to him and believed his lies shows that you really have nothing to do except watching CNN’s promoting liars.

    • @Ric L And your response shows just how stupid you are, you’re not able to grasp even basic concepts of comprehension. I asked him if he was being serious, in which case I have other things to do than listen to that garbage. On the other hand, if he was being facetious or satirical then we can have a conversation. Keep up, bruh… this is not exactly rocket science.
