Default The most dangerous man in the White House is not who you think

The most dangerous man in the White House is not who you think

The most dangerous man in the Trump administration is Roy Cohn (above) the late and unlamented lawyer who taught Trump how to be an attack dog.

The most dangerous man in the Trump administration isn't Steve Bannon or Jeff Sessions or even the President himself.
Instead, it's a sleazy, creepy lawyer who died 30 years ago, and his name is Roy Cohn.
It's not nice to criticize the dead, but in Cohn's case, I'll make an exception.
Back in the 1950s, Cohn was chief counsel for Senator Joe McCarthy, when McCarthy was destroying the lives of thousands by claiming they were Communists.

Cohn's next stop was the espionage trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
Were they spies? Probably. Did they deserve the death penalty? Historians say it's an open question, but most agree that Roy Cohn's improper actions during the trial led the Rosenbergs to their electrocution.
At parties in Manhattan, Cohn would tell people that when he was a kid, he used to swim in the Hudson River.
"But it's so disgusting and dirty!" his listeners would exclaim.

He would reply with a sly grin, "How do you think it got that way?"
Fast-forward two decades and this same sleazeball becomes the attorney for none other than a young Donald Trump.

In 1973, the Justice Department accused the Trump Organization of violating the Fair Housing Act by denying African Americans the opportunity to rent apartments.
Roy Cohn, Trump's attorney and a notorious counterpuncher, sued the government for $100 million, claiming the charges were baseless.

The lawsuit failed, but the strategy won.
Trump skated.
He also learned a tremendous lesson if somebody hits you, hit him back ten times harder, even when you're wrong.
Especially when you're wrong.
Sound familiar?
When Trump was just a businessman, how he behaved didn't matter except, of course, to the businesses he fleeced while alternating between growing his empire and going bankrupt.
We saw vestiges of Roy Cohn in Trump's presidential campaign, where he would ignore potential opponents until they attacked him, and then he would attack them with endless brutality.
We're seeing the same thing today the same brutal counterpunching tactics Trump learned at Roy Cohn's feet.
The biggest victim in all of this?
We are turning into a nation of Roy Cohns, snarling first and asking questions later.
It's not just celebrities, like the alleged comedienne who tweeted a photo of a decapitated Trump, or the Public Theater, turning Julius Caesar into a play about wishful thinking of the death of the President.
It's in the way regular people treat each other.
And it's not just one deranged gunman trying to mow down Republican Congressmen on a baseball diamond.
It's all of us.
It just feels like civility is vanishing from society.
It seems like wherever you go, on the highway, on Manhattan sidewalks, everywhere, people have less patience for each other.
Trump recently described the House bill to replace Obamacare as "mean."
But what's really become mean is we, the people.
It's just ugly out there.
I can't point to statistics and surveys. I can just tell you what I'm seeing.
People are emulating our President.
They're getting nasty.
They're getting short with each other.
As the President himself would tweet, sad.
So as you make your rounds today, try not to fall into the trap set by the President and his long dead, sleazy attorney.
Be kind.
Be patient.
Be human.
Donald Trump isn't the single most dangerous man in government, and neither are any of his cabinet members or advisors.
It's the late and unlamented Roy Cohn, and we cannot let our America turn into his.
