5. Very effective, at least from a Democratic POV.

I suspect that diehard Trump fans will find any number of excuses to not need his warnings. It's an art form by now, after all, they've had nearly four years to build the alternate fantasy world they all live in.

8. Good ad. Not that it makes any difference now that the damage has been done & is still

being done, but I think he's the only member of that crime cabal who is truly sorry for his part in it.

9. Either Cohen is looking to profit from his tattling on Trump

or is genuinely concerned about the ugly, immoral, and criminal things he did while working for the man.

Either way, this is a good ad, offered by a man who is, in fact, in prison for the things he did for Trump. (I have to wonder if his family exerted if not pressure then at least encouragement for him to do this.)

11. He resents being the fall guy over Stormy payouts and lying about Russian contacts to protect Donnie

while his former boss he protected and obeyed is increasingly powerful and getting away with unethical illegal dishonest behavior and no accountability.

16. Attention all Fall Guys and Gals: If you were ever the Faller for an asshole,

you should take this opportunity to vote against the biggest asshole that ever dodged responsibility and put it on you. Vote DEM this election and send your asshole a note describing why you did.

19. I seem to recall a complaint from him about the Stormy payoff

Cohen "laundered" the first payment -- maybe it was to the other bimbo -- and had been promised a prompt repayment by Trump -- but he had to cajole and nudge his boss for months to finally get the money. Trump knew he owed Michael the money, mind you, but seemed to think Cohen was just another "contractor" to be fleeced and ripped off. That kind of behavior from the man you're protecting does not ensure loyalty. I'm sure there's more to Cohen's flipping than that, but I can't help but think the reluctance of Trump to pay Cohen as promised must have made poor Michael finally understand that Trump couldn't be trusted to be fair, even with a long time acquaintance and fixer. So Cohen faces prison while Trump lives like a king with thousands, millions even, of duped fools lining up to kiss his ring. Worse, Trump's public statements about Cohen, after his arrest and indictment, suggest he barely knew the guy. Imagine being in Michael's shoes: Michael Flynn, in Trump's public words, remains a fine man and patriot, a paragon of honesty and good work; Cohen is just some lawyer whose help he occasionally used for some unimportant things.

Cohen was no G. Gordon Liddy, willing to take a fall for the "big guy"; and that may well be because Trump is no Richard Nixon, a paragon of loyalty to his minions by comparison. Trump is no Don Corleone, either, or his consigliere wouldn't have ratted him out.

14. Cohen paid the price with time in prison. He is telling the truth.

No matter what Trump says, Trump hasn't paid a cent yet.
Cohen paid the price. He knows the truth.

21. I'll give him points

there's something about him that leads me to believe he is sincere.....yes I know he has a book out but towards the end of him and Donald, he just seemed just plain troubled, not arrogant like the rest of Trump's enablers

He was just another victim, maybe more willing, but none-the-less a very real victim of mafia Don charm.
