There are those who remember this phrase – “Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist party?”

IN the early 1950s, the whack-job politician Joseph McCarthy had everyone convinced that Communists were everywhere. News media and sheep masquerading as elected public servants allowed paranoia to be the name of the game.

Fast forward to another era and the machinations of the central legal arm of McCarthism, Roy Cohn would find another schlep to guide.

Watch this Youtube video interview: “Roy Cohn (1927-1986), Trump’s legal representative in the 1970s. 1951 interview. “Decades later, Mr. Cohn’s influence on Mr. Trump is unmistakable. Mr. Trump’s wrecking ball of a presidential bid — the gleeful smearing of his opponents, the embracing of bluster as brand — has been a Roy Cohn number on a grand scale.”
