George Will: The Cohen Tapes Show Trump a ‘Low-Life From Queens’ With an ‘Incontinent Sexual Appetite’

NBC Political Analyst and conservative columnist George Will came in with the barbs Tuesday on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell, after the world heard the first of what has been promised to be multiple tapes of President Donald Trump‘s conversations with his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Will told O’Donnell that this first tape, in which Trump and Cohen discuss a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, is just “redundant evidence” that Trump is “a seedy man whose incontinent sexual appetites get him into trouble with seedy women.”

“The superglue that adheres Trump’s supporters to him is one of the scientific wonders of our age,” he mused. “At the end of the day we have good decent Americans listening to not John Quincy Adams and Lincoln and Roosevelt and Eisenhower, but listening to this low-life from Queens talking about paying off his low-lives from Playboy magazine.”

“I mean, there does come a point at which the American people will say ‘enough’,” he continued. “See, I don’t think, Lawrence, that the American people, by and large, are angry. I think they’re deeply embarrassed and I think they’re sad about what has come to the country.”

“And I think at the end of the day embarrassment and sadness are more explosive than anger,” he added.
