-- The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His Former Attorney And Personal Advisor?The Man Who Helped Get Him Into the Oval OfficeOnce Donald Trump?s fiercest surrogate, closest confidant, and staunchest defender, Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons are buried. This is the most devastating business and political horror story of the century. As Trump?s lawyer and "fixer," Cohen not only witnessed firsthand, but was also an active participant in the inner workings of Trump?s business empire, political campaign, and presidential administration. This is a story that you have not read in newspapers, or on social media, or watched on television. These are accounts that only someone who worked for Trump around the clock for over a decade?not a few months or even a couple of years?could know. Cohen describes Trump?s racist rants against President Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Black and Hispanic people in general, as well as the cruelty, humiliation, and abuse he leveled at family and staff. Whether he?s exposing the fact that Trump engaged in tax fraud by inflating his wealth or election fraud by rigging polls, or outing Trump?s Neanderthal views towards women or his hush-money payments to clandestine lovers, Cohen pulls no punches. He show?s Trump?s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate, mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul?a man who courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to the common man, but then rips off?small business owners, a con-man who will do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the cost to his family, his associates, or his country. At the heart of Disloyal The real real Donald Trump who permeates these pages?the racist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating President?will be discussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.

There were some eye-rolling moments as I read Cohen's book because he came off as a wannabe mobster who was willing to do almost anything for Trump. However, Cohen took full responsibility for his action and the consequences like helping get Trump elected. There were some new things I learned from reading this book so it's worth trying if you're interested in another "tell it all" book from someone who used to be very close to Trump. Just be warned that it's full of many infatuated moments until the ending when reality hits Cohen.

Here's another Trump book that I just couldn't get into. I skimmed it over, and found nothing new in what I was reading. I think if I had borrowed the book earlier in the year 2020, I would have found it more current and relevant. It's hard to read now and find it interesting when there's a new president in the White House!

Cohen is a sleeze and he admits it. But he's not as bad as his boss. Cohen deserves all his punishments for his role in helping a psychopath get elected.

I wasn't expecting such an intelligent and well written book from Cohen. Not surprisingly he tells a story of a mob boss who has no interest in a job that he is utterly unqualified for as are the stooges and sycophants that surround him.

I didn't see this as a Poor Me like other reviewers mention. I see it as a Learn from my Mistakes. Also, it is terrifying! Cohen shares how all the Trump staff know he lies non stop, doesn't pay his bills, and lets others take the fall. Cohen admits he did all the horrible and fraudulent things for Trump because he was caught up in the Trump cult. It is easy to read and follow and prepare to just be so disheartened by the nasty ways of 45 and his staff. Cohen predicts Trump won't go quietly when new president is sworn in. I hope he is wrong. So far though, he is correct. Trump still claiming election fraud as of 12/8/2020.

Agree on the "poor me" bit. Hard to feel sorry for someone who's sole purpose was to put a man-child in the highest position of the country. Greed could be his middle name. All the lying & manipulation caught up to him. It's a feel sorry for me book & might have held some merit if he had walked away early on exposing the corruption. Little late, Michael. Guess you can kiss your pardon goodbye

I was actually feeling quite charitable towards Michael Cohen after his re-testimony in Congress - until I read this. A very long and circuitous tale of "poor me" by just another greedy, corrupt, heartless and power/money hungry gangster, who avows he's telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth as he very selectively "reveals" rotten things about Trump that everybody already knows, and then ends the charade with the claim that he (author and power/money hungry skeevy crook who was only too happy to do whatever was required of him in the employ of an even greedier, more corrupt, more heartless and more power/money hungry skeevy crook - whom said author still loves) was blamelessly framed and imprisoned. Oh, puh-leeze.

Disloyal and Mary Trump's book pair well together and provide valuable insights into the toxic stew created by people with a malignant narcissistic personality disorder.

I remain mystified as to why Michael Cohen was drawn into Trump's cult. He hints that he was impressed by the swagger of Mafia dons at his Uncle Morty's club, but he certainly knew that it didn't end well for most of these guys.

It was chilling to read how eager powerful men are to enable each other's corruption and sexually predatory behavior. Mr. Cohen had a vast network of people ready, willing, and able to become complicit in Trump's evil deeds.

Yes, the book's dig up dirt, apologize, rinse, and repeat becomes boring. Still, it helps us decide for ourselves whether Mr. Cohen's remorse is genuine or merely a smoke screen for his regret that he got caught. In the end, I got the clear sense that he hopes Trump gets a well-earned visit from Karma at 12:01 PM on January 20, 2021 shortly after Trump is evicted from the White House.

I share his and Mary Trump's concern that Trump may stage a successful coup.

Say what you want about Michael Cohen, but he knew Donald Trump inside and out. What he saw was very disturbing to say the least. Cohen was a loyal cult member (for awhile) as is the Republican Senate and House and their supporters. I will never work for NASA in any capacity, but I can see that Donald Trump is a narcissistic idiot, who is unfit for the office he holds, but not for much longer, thankfully.

I was somewhat pleasantly surprised to enjoy this book, albeit the topic of Trump makes me grind my teeth. Cohen has self deprecating humour and he seems well aware of how idiotic he was in slavish devotion to Trump. I do feel I have more understanding of how Trump operates, as well as how/why so many fawn all over him.
