Rep. Cohen said on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, “It’s just more insanity. The Sharpie thing is amazing. When they asked him at his press conference and he gave the same look when he was asked about paying off Stormy Daniels, checks, the doe in the headlights look of, I have no idea who did it, but he never did say, I’m going to find out who did it. He’s done about as much to find out who did the sharpie thing as O.J. Simpson has done to find out the murderers.”
Trump isn’t a good liar. He’s pathological and unrelenting in his lies. It is a shock to no one that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross threatened to fire anyone in NOAA who contracted Trump’s crazy and illegal hurricane forecast.
The House Judiciary Committee will be voting on Thursday on the procedures that they will use to move forward in their impeachment investigation. Trump and OJ both have a lot in common. They denied committing crimes, got away with it for a while, but OJ eventually ended up in prison for an unrelated felony. If Trump really is like OJ, and election defeat in 2020 will lead from the White House to the big house for the potentially soon to be former president.
