‘You Can’t Let Him Off The Hook’: Trump-Loving TV Guest Calls For Violence Against Michael Cohen
During a Monday interview on far-right network Real America’s Voice, a supporter of Donald Trump called for violence against attorney Michael Cohen, suggesting that he deserves hit “between the eyes” because his testimony could result in an indictment for the former president.
“He lives in New York, right? Michael Cohen? He lives in Manhattan?” a guest named Jared asked host Ed Henry. “I hope he’s being protected, because even though the president doesn’t condone violence, that man needs his ass handed to him.”
“Maybe not violence,” Henry interrupted. “We’re not calling for violence.”
“I mean, he’s a lying sack of crap, man,” Jared continued. “It pisses me off. And I’d slap a figure-four leg lock on him in seconds. That guy is disgusting. You talk about a horse face.”
“He’s like, I can’t stand that guy,” he added. “Right between the eyes, he needs it. Anyway, that’s my opinion on Michael Cohen. You can’t let somebody like that off the hook. You can’t let him off the hook.”
Co-host Karyn Turk downplayed the guest’s calls for violence.
“Well, and being from Jersey myself, I want to say that like the things that you say, you know, these are normal speak for someone from Jersey,” she opined. “They’re not to be taken totally, literally.”
“Don’t blame Jersey,” Jared quipped. “Just blame me. I’m a man of loyalty. I’m a man of passion. I’m a man of conviction. And for that man to do what he did alone, he needs his ass handed to him.”
Trump himself has also suggested his supporters engage in violent protest as he faces a possible indictment amid multiple investigations.
