Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former attorney, did something very important that Trump has never done and will never do. He admitted to lying to the government along with other crimes and accepted his punishment. He served prison time and was disbarred. I write this not to admire Michael Cohen. He fell under the sway of Donald Trump, committed crimes and got what he deserved.
Donald Trump has told many thousands of lies, documented by the Washington Post fact checkers and many others, continues to lie about the 2020 election, the January 6 insurrection, the stolen secret government files he sequestered at Mar-a-Lago and refused to return, and has lied the multitude of other crimes he has committed.
Trump still walks free, and the media are in a frenzy over the fact that Trump is about to be arraigned in New York City for a host of criminal charges. Finally. And unlike Cohen, Trump continues to lie and rage at the District Attorney and everyone else who thinks he should be held accountable for his crimes.
I’m not going to spend more time on this. I just wanted to note for the record that Michael Cohen, who is being vilified by Trump and his defense counsel, not to mention the other sycophants who don’t care what Trump does., is a better man than Donald Trump. Not a perfect man, obviously. But better than Donald Trump by light years.
Better than Trump, an incredibly low bar.
