Pretty emphatic description of Trumps character and raison d'être in a Quora answer:

Michael Cohen is testifying against Trump; various things including hush money payments from Trump regarding covering up his affair with a pornstar and also Trump's knowledge about his campaign meeting with Russian agents to obtain information on Clinton prior to the election.

I wonder whether he'll be able to wriggle his way out of this one. Watching bits of it live and it's kind of shocking how partisan the committee is.

The Republican's on the committee are just insane. I don't see why they think backing Trump is such a good idea; they must know that he is toxic to the party in the medium term, so they're basically just increasing the chances of their own ousting at the next election.

none of this matters. I stopped caring. His base will never move. Bill Maher put it beautifully. America abandoned the rural states and as a consequence they don't fucking care. They know he is a cheat and a racist. They are bible bashers and they defend a serial adulterer. They don't give a shit about their hypocrisy.

They just want to see it burn

I don't know if I'd describe patronising as beautiful.
Something in my aspect and speech seemed to excite vague fears and aversions in everyone I met, as if I were a being infinitely removed from all that is normal and healthful.

I don't disagree with the main point, but yeah, he comes off as pretty condescending. It's also yet another example of an American explaining a problem as if the rest of the industrialised world hasn't had that exact same problem for a hundred years.

Even in doing Justice they manage to fuck it up. Shitshow.

2 laws mate

one for the rich and connected

and one for the plebs

I am not even surprised or shocked.

When Prince Philip crashed into another car with a baby and faced zero consequence. Two laws. The quicker you accept that the easier you will sleep

He could get 10 years in the second case. The judge there seems a bit more grounded but you never know....

Mueller report is in. This will be interesting. :-s

I don’t think much will point directly to Donny but we’ll see.

Come for the disclosures, stay for the atrociously-written article of typical BBC smash-it-out-and-correct-later-cos-NEWS style.

What a bar he's set as president by personally not colluding with a foreign power to influence the result of an election. The tagline for his next campaign should be Trump: Never murdered a child (as far as we know).

At least we know he'll be gracious and subdued about it, won't make a complete tool of himself and move on gracefully. Yes...
