The old saying goes “Just because you put lipstick on a pig it doesn’t change the fact that it is a pig.” The president’s lawyer set up a company called Essentials Consultants to pay Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her paid for sexual encounters with Mr. Trump. Mr. Cohen’s access to the president-elect made him a prime target for bribery and extortion from businesses that operated on a global level who wanted things to happen financially in their favor that the president could make happen with the stroke of a pen. The amount of money that was to flow through Mr. Cohen’s sham business account has now reached almost a half a billion dollars. This story has taken on a global interest because of the Russian connection.
The president said that he welcomed any entity that could help him win the election of 2016. It appears that he might have made a deal with the Devil to be on the top of the world but at what cost? Russian collusion in the elections of 2016 is all over this story. This is a replay of Nixon and the Watergate scandal. Nixon told the American people “I am not a crook” This was proven to be a lie that his supporters believed until the bitter end. he resigned his office in disgrace. This president’s downfall will not only be about politics as usual but how we accept as normal the negative side of our psyche. Donald Trump is just a symbol of what we have become as a society that is lost and looking for a reason to feel good about itself. The strategy of tough love might be appropriate here, and just maybe the president is “crazy like a fox” to make America great again. Despite his personal failings as a human being.
