More Tapes Won’t Sway Trump Loyalists

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 26, 2018

BY NOW YOU HAVE HEARD OF TAPES OF CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN ATTORNEY MICHAEL COHEN AND DONALD TRUMP THAT PURPORT TO PROVE THE NOW-PRESIDENT DISCUSSED PAYING HUSH MONEY TO A FORMER PLAYBOY MODEL WITH WHOM HE ALLEGEDLY HAD AN AFFAIR, AN AFFAIR THE PRESIDENT DENIES.

QUESTION: SINCE THESE TAPES WERE OBTAINED IN AN FBI RAID, HOW DID THEY WIND UP BEING PLAYED ON CNN? COHEN’S ATTORNEY, LANNY DAVIS, PROVIDED THEM TO THE NETWORK AND THEN CAME ON TO TALK ABOUT THEM. A KEY LINE IN THE INTERVIEW WAS DAVIS’ APPEAL TO TRUMP VOTERS. DAVIS IS A LONGTIME FRIEND AND SUPPORTER OF HILLARY CLINTON AND FOR HIM TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO TRUMP VOTERS GIVES AWAY THE GAME: THE LEFT IS TRYING TO UNDERMINE THEIR SUPPORT OF THE PRESIDENT. THEY HAVE THROWN EVERYTHING AT HIM AND IT HASN’T WORKED. I DOUBT THIS WILL WORK EITHER.

TRUMP SUPPORTERS HAVE MADE A JUDGMENT ABOUT HIM. THEY LIKE HIS POLICIES, NOT HIS BEHAVIOR. THAT’S WHY THEY ELECTED AND SUPPORT HIM. WHETHER THAT IS GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY OR THE PRESIDENCY IS ANOTHER ISSUE. COHEN HAS TURNED ON THE PRESIDENT TO SAVE HIS OWN SKIN. THAT. TOO, IS A JUDGMENT PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO MAKE ABOUT HIM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
