Steve Cohen Calls Donald Trump ‘The Worst Person in the Universe’


U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, a Democrat who represents Tennessee’s Ninth Congressional District, has gone over the top yet again, this time calling U.S. Republican President Donald Trump “the worst person in the world.”

Cohen made the remark Friday on CNN with host Jim Sciutto.

Sciutto asked Cohen if his constituents in Tennessee were exhausted with Cohen’s investigations of Trump? Sciutto also asked if they instead thought they should focus their energies on defeating Trump in November 2020.

Cohen responded with this:

A few people tell me that. Most people tell me don’t let up. Don’t stop. They want him gone. Now, my district is a predominantly Democratic, African-American district. That is a demographic that is very much against Trump and feels his racism in a very personal way.

But it’s not just my African-American constituents. It’s my Caucasian constituents, as well [as] my Hispanic constituents. They encourage me to continue to go after Trump. They find him to be one of the most miserable people ever to live — that Keith Olbermann should come back and declare him the worst person in the universe.


As The Tennessee Star reported last week, Cohen went on MSNBC and put on a red hat with the slogan “Make Russia Great Again.”

According to Fox News’ account, Cohen was in the closing moments of his appearance with host Morgan Radford. Cohen had made what the network described as “a clear attempt to mock President Trump’s signature campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again.’”

Even Radford did not know what to say, other than “Oh my word, OK.”

As The Star reported last month, Cohen embarrassed himself as former special counsel Robert Mueller wrapped up his testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

According to a video on C-Span, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat representing New York’s 10th Congressional District, brought the hearing to a close, but before he did he requested everyone remain seated and quiet.

At that point, Mueller got up to leave.

A person out of the camera’s line of sight applauded, regardless, for a few seconds. Then that person stopped after realizing no one else had followed his or her lead.

According to journalists and one Capitol Hill employee who posted on Twitter, that person was none other than Cohen.

Cohen recently sought attention for himself by nibbling on Kentucky Fried Chicken during a formal congressional hearing.

Cohen also said last year that now U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn should jump off the Harahan Bridge in Memphis.

Cohen said on television last month that Trump is a “paranoid, delusional individual” who needs professional help.

    Cohen is an IDIOT!

    That comment just shows how out of touch with reality Mr. Cohen is. Somebody buy this man another bucket of chicken.

    Cohen’s ridiculous barking is a fitting reflection of the fetid sewer he represents.

    Tennessee would be a much better, safer, more prosperous state without both Cohen AND Memphis.

  8. Traditional thinker

    Once again the clown from “It” comes out of the storm drains of the underground to show his evil ignorant face. And once again his stupidity radiates like the sun. Maybe its all of the alcohol consumption, or possibly the unconfessed sins of his past and present which drives his comments. Whatever it might be, the sadness of it all is the fact that he is nothing more than a paid punch line or butt of a joke, such as I’m describing right now.
