Democrat Michael Cohen Behind Trump’s Presidential Bid

Michael Cohen is a Trump organization executive, who is a Democrat and a high-profile Obama supporter is “offended” by Obama’s agenda and months ago co-founded the Should Trump Run? website.

ABC News:

…since Obama’s election in 2008, he said he has grown disappointed with the president, so much so that he now describes himself as “offended” by the administration’s agenda. America, Cohen said, has become a “third-world nation,” echoing words that have become a familiar refrain of Trump’s.

“I thought it was the greatest thing ever,” Cohen said he felt during the first months of the Obama presidency. “This fantastic orator was going to make a change in this country. He was going to do things that Bush clearly did not do.” His distaste for Obama, and Trump’s professed interest in pursuing the Republican nomination in 2012, led Cohen, businessman Stewart Rahr and other supporters to create “Should Trump Run?” as a way both to spark — and gauge — interest in a potential Trump presidential bid.

Cohen serves as Trumps special counsel and he and The Donald are close. Around the Trump offices, Cohen is affectionately known as “Tom,” as in Tom Hagen, the Godfather’s consigliore, and he wears only Dolce Gabbana suits and Hermes ties. Cohen describes his job this way:

“It means that if somebody does something Mr. Trump doesn’t like, I do everything in my power to resolve it to Mr. Trump’s benefit,” Cohen said in an interview with ABC News. “If you do something wrong, I’m going to come at you, grab you by the neck and I’m not going to let you go until I’m finished.”

Update: I left an important Cohen quote out when I first published. Twitter friend Conserv_Voices brought this to my attention:

“I’m prepared to put the fact that I voted for Obama to the side,” he said. I’m more concerned now about my children, future grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and everybody’s children and families. I’m more concerned about them than I am about party affiliation.”

It’s obvious that Trump is serious about a run for president, for whatever reason. The man doesn’t like to lose, so I expect to find out more about Obama’s natural-born status, because…he doesn’t settle for losing. If you haven’t heard about Trump telling Hannity that Obama was born “Barry Soetoro and changed his name somewhere along the way, take a look at this video.”

  • Still undecided on Trump. I’m torn between, will he be a good candidate, or another spoiler for the Republicans. Just not sure. I remember another Billionaire, from Texas..

    • David, I think he will end up being a spoiler, but I don’t think that’s his intention. I believe the things he is saying are very important – and that’s why he is getting the support. People are so grateful to hear someone with a platform speak to their issues, but his school records, bad grades, a ghost writer – all of that would be important in making a choice who to vote for. Still yet, none are a crime against the people. A lie, whether about his birth place, his citizenship due to his father, or an incorrect name is a crime against the people. Just my opinion:-)

  • Oh I agree.. and my comment on the interview blog entry says that I’m sure Obama is getting a big pain in his frontal lobe.. I think that even if Trump doesn’t get the nod.. he’s showing the other GOP candidates that we need to take Obama to the mat on all the policies as well as his hidden record.. and associations. God bless Trump if he does nothing more that open Obama’s maggot infested past. As well as how stupid this countries policies are. If he gets the nod.. I’m voting Trump.

  • The man has some very alarming ties, especially to Soros.
