Report: Gary Cohn Does Not Regret Trashing President Trump

 WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 22: Gary Cohn, director of the U.S. National Economic Council, arrives to a swearing in ceremony of White House senior staff in the East Room of the White House on January 22, 2017 in Washington, DC. Trump today mocked protesters who gathered for large demonstrations across the U.S. and the world on Saturday to signal discontent with his leadership, but later offered a more conciliatory tone, saying he recognized such marches as a "hallmark of our democracy."

 Long overdue to be fired.

National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn has no regrets about trashing President Donald Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville earlier this month.

According to a report in Politico, Cohn told “associates” that he “didn’t regret one bit having made his comments.” Cohn also reportedly complained loudly about President Trump at a dinner in a Long Island restaurant — loud enough to be overheard by others, according to the Washington Post.

Cohn, a Democrat, bought into the opposition and media line that the violent Antifa activists who attacked right-wing extremists in Charlottesville were merely “[c]tizens standing up for equality and freedom.”

He has evidently refused to reconsider his views as Antifa proudly claimed credit for the violence and launched more attacks in the days that followed, violently assaulting a group of peaceful right-wing protesters Sunday in Berkeley, California.

Nor was Cohn moved by the stirring defense offered by Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, a fellow Jew who responded to criticism by his Yale classmates with a public letter declaring that the allegations against Trump were inaccurate.

Whatever the reason for Cohn’s stubborn public opposition to the president’s words, Charlottesville was not the first time he expressed contempt for the president, whom he ostensibly serves in the public interest.

  1. Cohen functions as a useful idiot in Trumps administration...I prefer useful idiots to be none the wiser. The last refuge blog has a piece on his "useful idiot" position. indyjonesouthere
