Bonnie Watson Coleman has been a leader in the civil rights movement for decades. And in 2014, she became the first African-American female to ever be elected to the House of Representatives in the state of New Jersey.This week, Rep. Watson Coleman appeared on the Dean Obeidallah Show to discuss recent comments made by Donald Trump. According to the Democrats, the former President is a ‘disgusting human being.”
Obeidallah began, “Putin is like our enemy. We’re in a proxy war with Russia. We’re not fighting them, but we’re giving them weapons to kill Russians because they’re taking out democracy. And there’s Donald Trump literally praising Putin again at his rally Saturday, and then on TV, on some horrible show I don’t watch somewhere, saying that Putin should find out dirt on Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. In the middle of this war!”
Watson Coleman responded:
“So I don’t want to disrespect anybody who has experience is in any way with mental illness. But Donald Trump represents a multiplicity of mental illnesses. And he has no soul. So there’s nothing, there’s actually nothing this man could say or do that would surprise me. He has been a disgusting human being since he’s been an adult, and we’ve known about how he treats people who worked for him, how he treated contractors, how he beat people out of money, how he lied, how he treated women. What does one expect from him? And if anything, I think he’s deteriorating, and I’m so grateful. I’m so grateful for the Jan. 6 committee doing its job and trying to get to the bottom of the who, what, when, where, why, how, and how many folks were involved. Because at the end of the day, the one thing we have to ensure is that we never, ever, ever have to worry about Donald Trump holding office. He can’t even be a dog catcher.”
