If you haven’t paid any attention to the long and filthy career as a grifter of one Donald J. Trump, you might believe he’d be willing to protect his children from harm or incarceration.
That would be the decent thing to do, and for that reason, disabuse yourself of any such notion.
“He’s going to turn on his accountant and point the finger,” says his former fixer Michael Cohen. “He’s going to say, ‘Don Jr. handled that, Ivanka handled that,” Cohen admitted. “Melania. Don’t take me. Take Melania.’ He’s going to tell them to take everyone except for himself. That’s just the kind of guy he is.”
Cohen knows – from experience and to his agony – how little concern Donald Trump has for the well-being of anyone but himself.
