Trump Lawyer Tweets Images With Black Friends To Prove He’s Not Racist

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s very outspoken personal lawyer, took to Twitter Wednesday morning to let everyone know that he’s not racist by posting a collage of photos of himself with black people.

Cohen, who is perhaps best known for tweeting lingerie shots of his college-aged daughter, said in the new tweet that he is the son of a Holocaust survivor, declaring “I have no tolerance for #racism.” He also noted that his support of Trump does not make him a racist, along with a photo collage of him posing with African-Americans including Omarosa Manigault and Diamond and Silk:

The president has been the subject of intense criticism after he defended white supremacists gathered in Charlottesville over the weekend in a press conference on Tuesday.

Neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups descended on the Virginia city Saturday — armed with assault rifles, tear gas and torches — to protest the removal of Confederate monuments. Violent clashes broke out between those groups and anti-Nazi protestors, before a white supremacist plowed his car into a crowd, killing one protestor and injuring others.

In Trump’s Tuesday presser, he blamed the anti-Nazi protestors for “charging in without a permit” and said that some of those gathered to protest the removal of the statue were “very fine people.”
