Problem is there is a complete loss of understanding whether he is lying or telling the truth or joking or being serious with him.
His words can be spun in any freaking direction as required by supporters or detractors.
What does that make him? Hopefully after Jan 20, it makes him a real estate guy again and not president.
On Jan 20 It makes him, President Trump being sworn in for his second term.
Back to words matter, though. It was fun, entertaining even, when he was a candidate, how he'd just be the every man, sitting at a bar railing on everything kind of talk that he did. Like your crazy uncle. Enough so that I voted for him.
4 years later though, I've had enough. Even if it was Hillary running again, I'd vote for her. That's how much his demeanor and attitude toward people who don't fall in line have affected me. Call it TDS? Sure. I'd actually call it being a guy with a good heart.
Michael Cohen, yet another in the incredibly long list of people who have written a book, or eventually broke ranks and spoke out against him -- I don't think there's really anyone left who thinks Trump is a nice guy. At some point, are these all losers? Disloyal? Suddenly see the light people? At some point there is a mass effect where any reasonable person has to go, hmmm, maybe it's Trump, and not these dozens of others?
I know, he doesn't have to be nice. But if he was able to dial it back from 11 to maybe a 6 or 7 on the "I'm an asshole, I know everything, you're stupid if you don't agree with me" factor, he'd win in a landslide.
"There I was, watching myself on TV, the Michael Cohen everyone had an opinion about: liar, snitch, idiot, bully, sycophant, convicted criminal, the least reliable narrator on the planet.
So, please permit me to reintroduce myself in these pages. The one thing I can say with absolute certainty is that whatever you may have heard or thought about me, you don’t know me or my story or the Donald Trump that I know. For more than a decade, I was Trump’s first call every morning and his last call every night. I was in and out of Trump’s office on the 26th floor of the Trump Tower as many as fifty times a day, tending to his every demand. Our cell phones had the same address books, our contacts so entwined, overlapping, and intimate that part of my job was to deal with the endless queries and requests, however large or small, from Trump’s countless rich and famous acquaintances. I called any and all of the people he spoke to, most often on his behalf as his attorney and emissary, and everyone knew that when I spoke to them, it was as good as if they were talking directly to Trump.
Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did. In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did, because I bore witness to the real man, in strip clubs, shady business meetings, and in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really was: a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man."
