Feeling a need to clear his conscience following last week’s synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh, and in the midst of his own legal troubles, President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said in a recent interview that he recalled several instances in which his former boss used racist and anti-gay language during one-on-one conversations.
In the interview with Vanity Fair, Cohen said he wanted to express himself in the wake of a tragedy in which 11 people were gunned down during Saturday services, and looking ahead to Tuesday’s election, which he called “the most important vote in our lifetime.”
According to Cohen, during a discussion at Trump Tower after returning from a 2016 campaign rally, Cohen observed that the rally crowd was overwhelmingly white when he watched it on television.
“I told Trump that the rally looked vanilla on television,” Cohen said. “Trump responded, ‘That’s because black people are too stupid to vote for me.’”
A few years earlier, after Nelson Mandela’s death, Trump allegedly said to Cohen: “‘Name one country run by a black person that’s not a s—hole,’ and then he added, ‘Name one city,'”
