(Breitbart) – Monday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) waved a Sharpie as he compared President Donald Trump’s actions to O.J. Simpson’s claims he will find the murderer of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.
Discussing the president allegedly using a Sharpie to alter a Hurricane Dorian weather map, Cohen said, “The Sharpie thing is amazing. When they asked him at his press conference and he gave the same look when he was asked about paying off Stormy Daniels’ checks, the doe in the headlights look of, ‘I have no idea who did it.’”
”But he never did say, ‘I’m going to find out who did it,’” he continued. “He’s done about as much to find out who did the Sharpie thing as O.J. Simpson has done to find out the murderers.”
Flashback: Democrat Steve Cohen: Trump Rally Reminiscent Of Germany During ‘Hitler Regime’
Appearing Thursday on MSNBC, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) claimed President Donald Trump’s Wednesday evening rally in Greenville, North Carolina, was reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
A partial transcript is as follows:
HALLIE JACKSON: I want to pick up right where this conversation has left off and your reaction to what you heard at that rally in North Carolina from President Trump overnight.
REP. STEVE COHEN: It was more reminiscent of Germany during the beginnings of the Hitler regime. People yelling send her back was un-American. I fear for the congressmen’s safety. I fear for the safety of other Congresspeople, [Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) in particular, and the other three ladies [Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). The atmosphere that Trump is creating is dangerous to American citizens and that’s abhorrent.
JACKSON: Congressman, there are people who will say your rhetoric right now, evoking the specter of Hitler for example, means you are just as responsible for the heated rhetoric as anybody else.
REP. COHEN: It’s just what it is. That’s where we got crowds get behind a xenophobic, nationalist leader, who took a minority and made them scapegoats, use them as a foil for his political rise to do some of the most awful things that . have ever happened in this world. I had relatives that were killed in the Holocaust. I don’t like it being used. I see the same tactics being used and to bring those racists up to remind people where America could be going is important.
