In his appearance on MSNBC’s Saturday morning show, Cohen told MSBNC's host Steve Kornacki, “I obviously do not have an opportunity to go within the conference, the Republican, we call it a caucus, they call it a conference. But I know some of the members there, and a lot of those members, they're rabid, they're sophomoric, literally, they're second term in Congress, never worked in politics before, and they think they are somehow like--it's all talked in military terms.”
“Nancy Pelosi's Democratic caucus and give or take 80 reasonable Republicans and pass some bills to avoid another CR problem and shutdown and avoid the debt crisis, protect the country from these people, who really, you got to think, we take an oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic, and these are the domestic enemies.”
Since President Obama took office, several Democrats in Congress and liberal citizens have branded conservatives, which include Tea Party members as racist, un-American, enemies, and have issued threats.
One personal threat was made on Friday by a liberal citizen in New Jersey against Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and was reported by Spokane Conservative Examiner, Joe Newby.
Cohan, who is 64 years old, made news headlines in July when he got caught tweeting at a 25-year-old female college student during the president’s State of the Union address, then said it was his “secret” daughter only to find out through DNA that it was not his daughter.
Cohen has become the first sitting member of Congress to call anyone in the House of Representatives or the Senate, a domestic enemy and then use the oath to support the country against all enemies foreign and domestic as his excuse.
