Michael Cohen claims Trump once hired a fake Obama so he could belittle and “fire” him on video


President Trump’s visceral, obsessive, and almost certainly racially-based hatred for his Black predecessor, President Barack Obama, is infamous for being monstrously petty and leaning into the absurd — but if his former lawyer is to be believed, his grudge went beyond the pale and into the realm of the psychotic.

According to CNN’s Pervaiz Shallwani, Michael Cohen’s upcoming book reveals that Trump’s revulsion at the election of a Black president was so intense that he hired a “Faux-Bama” lookalike just so he could “ritualistically belittled and then fired” him — and recorded the entire thing on video.

It sounds so insane that it’s hard to believe — but thankfully, Mr. Cohen provided us with an image that makes it obvious that his story is real.

Not only does Cohen give us this absolutely bonkers story about his racist hate for President Obama, he also gives us a few other choice tidbits that are so outrageously offensive they seem over the top and fabricated — until you think about what kind of man Donald Trump has revealed himself to be over the past four years.


In all honesty, folks, I am at a loss for words right now. I have been studiously following everything Trump has said and done over the past four years, and while it has definitely been a rollercoaster ride through the hills of his obviously tenuous grasp on sanity and the English language — please pardon my French —  this is absolutely the most deranged sh*t I have ever seen.

The racism is heinous and appalling, but it’s not much more reprehensible than the stuff Trump says on the campaign trail. It’s the picture that’s the real gut-punch.

We all know that Donald Trump is a man who is pathologically consumed with his prejudices and his need to exact revenge against those he despises, but for him to hire an Obama impersonator just so he could record himself fulfilling his own personal power-play domination fantasy is the behavior of a man who is entirely consumed with self-absorption and insecurity to the point where he rivals Narcissus himself.

Perhaps I’m being too optimistic at this point, but this might be the ball game for Trump.

Trump prides himself on promoting himself as this tough guy who doesn’t care what other people think and making himself out to be a winner — but nothing says weird psychotic loser like hiring a guy to pretend to be your enemy and then filming yourself yelling at him. Unfortunately, the Access Hollywood tape was waved away by too many Americans who didn’t see anything wrong with what he said and revelled in his sexual assault admission as some kind of show of masculinity, but it’s hard to see them waving this away.

He can’t just cry fake news because there’s a picture. Michael Cohen may have just atoned for his decades of misdeeds in the best way possible.
