Roy Cohn (closeted homophobe) defended Donald Trump in 1973 civil rights lawsuit

Courtesy of America blog:

I was just watching a chilling broadcast on CNN, about the US government’s 1973 civil rights case against Donald Trump.
The case alleged civil rights violations against African-Americans in Trump housing in NYC. You can see a snippet of the video below.

But then something caught my eye. CNN was mentioning how Trump, via his lawyer, hit back hard against the allocations. And I see a name flit across the screen, so I back up the DVR.


For anyone unaware, Roy Cohn was a hated man. He was Senator Joe McCarthy’s right-hand man during the McCarthy era anti-communist witch hunts that destroyed so many lives. But to add to the fun, Roy Cohn was a closeted gay man, who eventually died complications related to HIV/AIDS. But none of that stopped Cohn from destroying the lives of countless gay government employees who he, and McCarthy, drove out of of their careers.
