Memphis’ Rep. Steve Cohen Uses Rape Analogy to Describe President Donald Trump

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Memphis, has reportedly made yet another remark that some people might take offense to, this time involving the topic of rape.

According to various news outlets, Cohen recently complained that Republicans impeached former Democratic President Bill Clinton “over sex.”

Cohen then accused U.S. Republican President Donald Trump of “raping” the country.

Cohen’s office did not respond Wednesday to The Tennessee Star’s request for comment as to whether Cohen’s latest remark might have gone too far.

Cohen reportedly made these comments during a recent Democrat Steering and Policy Committee meeting where Cohen demanded that Democrats impeach Trump.

This calendar year alone, Cohen has already expressed his delight over the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives no longer requiring people to say “so help me God” under oath.

At the time of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in France earlier this year, Cohen used the occasion to say Trump is “torching the entire structure of government.”

Among other outbursts over the past several months, Cohen has also:

• Said the Founding Fathers created the nation’s Electoral College as a way to hurt black people.

• Pushed for a formal study on slavery reparations.

Co-sponsored the Green New Deal

Celebrated people on welfare not having to work for their benefits

Compared U.S. Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn to the mentally-challenged Waterboy character

Spent $200,000 of taxpayer money on a study to determine whether stress makes kids fat.

This is not Cohen’s first bout of hyperbole.

As reported, Cohen lost his temper at a news conference in Memphis in 2013 when Tennessee Watchdog asked former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius what she would say to people whose health insurance costs doubled or tripled due to Obamacare. Cohen has also said Tea Party supporters are no different than arsonists and compared Republicans to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels for opposing Obamacare.

He also said the Ebola virus would mutate into a Biblical-style plague that would devastate Tennessee –  unless state Republicans in the Tennessee General Assembly complied fully with Obamacare and expanded Medicaid.

    As a former resident of Memphis, I know Cohen to be an idiot. I never understood how he found people stupid enough to vote for him. He is a disgrace to the human race.

    Could we be any more embarrassed by this man? What is with Shelby County?

  3. Habu

    Cohen = swine.

    Here in Tennessee, we all know Cohen is “a fudgy nut” and an embarrassment to Tennesseans. How he manages to be re-elected is quite beyond me.

    It may have something to do with the fact that he comes from Memphis/Shelby County. They’ll vote for anything that properly panders to them. Based on some of the openly racist remarks from other representatives there, though, there seems to be a major disconnect with Memphis and the rest of the state.

    Maybe Grandbubba is right and we should allow Shelby County to leave Tennessee and join as part of Mississippi, and improve the average IQ of both states…

    Cohen must be sharing the Pelosi’s loco weed.
