Trump’s Obsession For Obama Takes A Strange Turn As Michael Cohen Says Trump Hired An Obama Impersonator So He Could Belittle Him And “Then Fired Him”

Donald Trump has displayed his obsessive jealousy of former President Barack Obama for years, so the book by Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, shows another level of pettiness by the White House’s current occupant toward his predecessor.  According to excerpts from Cohen’s book, the president’s obsession with Obama was so extreme: Trump hired a “Faux-Bama” to participate in a video in which Trump “ritualistically belittled the first black president and then fired him.”

In the book, Cohen goes on to describe Trump as a “racist” and a “con man” who baselessly claimed that Obama owed his places at Columbia and Harvard to “f—ing affirmative action.”

CNN obtained a copy of the book, Disloyal: A Memoir ahead of its release. The outlet says Cohen’s book doesn’t name the man allegedly hired to play Obama or provide a specific date for the incident; however, it does come with receipts. It includes a photograph of Trump sitting behind a desk, facing a Black man wearing a suit with an American flag pin affixed to the lapel. Furthermore, CNN reports that on Trump’s desk in the photo are two books, one displaying Obama’s name in large letters.

Cohen’s book further proves that Trump is a malignant narcissist.

Cohen’s book also details several racist rants by Trump. In one incident, according to Cohen, Trump said, “tell me one country run by a black person that isn’t a s—hole. They are all complete f—ing toilets.” Well, Trump certainly has turned our country into a shithole.
