Andrew Sullivan- Michael Cohen tape shows the real donald trump aka a con man

I do believe Mr. Sullivan is spot-on 100% perfect here.
(note- this is transcribed word for word, except there is one curse word which I have edited the word)

Andrew Sullivan: “What this tiny glimpse into reality reveals is something quite simple. It’s not that it’s a shock that Trump has been lying about this incident from the very beginning. That has long been clear. But there’s something about listening to his voice acknowledging this in such a breezy, matter-of-fact tone that exposes the purity of the cynicism behind the lies. ‘We have no knowledge of any of this,’ Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks, had, after all, originally told The Wall Street Journal when it broke the story days before the 2016 election. The idea that Trump had had an affair at all, let alone organized hush money to the National Enquirer, was ‘totally untrue.’ And yet here, as the curtain is pulled back, we hear Trump himself figuring out how to finance its cover-up.”


“This is not a man embarrassed by something unusual in his private life, lying defensively in a panic. It’s a world-weary operator in sleaze and outright deception, dealing with an item of everyday business. The euphemisms — ‘info,’ ‘financing,’ ‘our friend David,’ etc. — are those of people who know they’re doing something shady. He even talks of ‘using’ a religious-right figure. It’s the tape of a con man, discussing the con with an underling in a kind of consigliere code. And this revelation is therefore dangerous. It demonstrates that Trump is, in fact, just another crooked pol — and does so in his own voice.”

“Con men usually know that a con has a life span, and not a long one. At some point, it will collapse because it is, in fact, bulls_it. By then, the best con men have made the sale — think of ‘Trump University’ — and moved on. They also know that keeping the suckers sealed off from other sources of contrary information is essential until the deal is done. You have to maintain a fiction relentlessly, dismiss or delegitimize external information that might get your marks to think differently, and constantly make the sale. You have to humor and flatter and bullshit all the time, until you’ve sealed the deal.”

“And Trump is really, really good at this. In fact, it’s his chief skill, along with his instinct for the easy mark and another human being’s vulnerable spot.”

3. All the words you can want to be true do not make anything true that is criminal.

And if it is not criminal, it ain't $hit. We are back to a he said she said deal.
There is no criminal actions even being discussed at this time.

So sorry for your propaganda campaign.

If they ever try to charge Trump for anything then the right will demand and cause the arrest of Hil Liar Y and her bunch for all of their felonies that were covered up.

Trump will make damn sure of this.

Obama may be in the way of this as well.
