U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen Lectures Tennessee Republicans to Stop Destroying America and Stop Defending Donald Trump


U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN-09) this weekend used his Twitter to hurl another personal attack at U.S. President Donald Trump while he also accused Trump of using the recent election to divide people.

As The Tennessee Star has reported many times, Cohen has made countless divisive remarks about Trump and Republicans.

On Saturday, Cohen linked to a TikTok video and ridiculed Trump, whose hair in the video appeared white.

“Ran out of clairol?” Cohen tweeted.

On Sunday, Cohen linked to a Memphis Commercial Appeal editorial that lectured Tennessee Republican politicians not to support Trump and not to encourage Trump’s belief that vote fraud occurred in this month’s presidential elections.

The paper’s Opinion and Engagement Director David Plazas wrote the editorial.

“Tennessee GOP politicians must stop condoning Trump’s election results denial,” Cohen tweeted about the Memphis Commercial Appeal editorial.

Cohen, speaking to Tennessee Republicans, also said that “to do as they are is helping to destroy democracy and America!”

The Memphis Commercial Appeal editorial criticized Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, retiring U.S. Sen, Lamar Alexander (R-TN), U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), U.S. Sen.-elect Bill Hagerty and various Republican members of the Tennessee General Assembly. The editorial blasted those elected officials for “defending President Trump’s challenge to the election results.”

“The unwillingness by top Republican elected officials to recognize Biden’s victory is a political stunt,” Plazas wrote.

“Moreover, they are feeding into the mistrust, the conspiracy theories and the polarization wounding America’s democratic traditions today.”

As The Tennessee Star reported in April, Cohen held a Coronavirus Town Hall by where he touted mail-in voting and warned that Russians were in America spreading misinformation about COVID-19. Cohen warned that Russians were trying to make Americans believe Pentagon staff caused or created COVID-19. Cohen, however, had no proof to back that up.

Cohen, as reported in August, Cohen deleted a tweet he wrote that prompted another person to say U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) “might as well be” white. And Cohen endorsed that other person’s comment by pressing the like button. The tweet that Cohen liked also ridiculed Herman Caine’s death. In May, as reported, Cohen endorsed a video of actor Robert De Niro bragging he wanted to punch Trump in the face.

Cohen, in April, insulted MyPillow, Inc. CEO Mike Lindell.

As The Star reported last year, Cohen compared Trump’s alleged quid pro quo on Ukraine as an affront to civil rights workers, women’s suffrage, and people murdered by the Ku Klux Klan.

Cohen also said in 2018 that Blackburn, then a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, should jump off the Harahan Bridge in Memphis.

As reported, Cohen said years ago 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.

  1. Pandora

    He has the morals of Adam “Shifty” Schiff, the face only his mother could love, and the brainpower of a bicycle seat. He is so dumb he doesn’t even realize that when he opens his mouth he always makes himself look like an even bigger idiot than the last time he spoke.

  2. Full of it

    If brains were dynamite this Memphis Clown does not have enough to blow his nose!

  3. Mimi

    This moron was Mr. Commodore when I was at Vanderbilt. Attention whores never change. We need to continue to expose breathtaking vote fraud and give Trump his victory.

  4. Bob Marsh

    Cohan is a JackA$$ what more can you say?

  5. Teddy

    Did Steve also criticize Al Gore when he contested Bush’s election for 37 days in 2000???? I don’t think so. Steve, enough of your TDS.

  6. Wolf Woman

    Steve Cohen is a political hack. He always attacks republicans and Pres. Trump as opposed to telling us why his ideas and those of his party are superior. And his comments are divisive, never enlightening. What a sad puppy.

  7. jamesb

    this idiot is the one who sucked down greasy kfc chicken legs while participating in an illegal impeachment.

    mr cohen bypass the digestive process and stick the rest of that bucket of chicken where the sun never shines

    A true embarrassment to this state! How does he continue to get elected? Maybe he’s using the same “technique” that most demonrats do…fraud! Come one Memphis, you can do better than this!

  9. Bob

    Maybe the demoncraps should realign themselves with the American public values instead of the far left’s weird way of looking at life. I never considered one demoncrap in this election based on the leadership at the national level. As long as the demoncraps in Washington vote leaders like Nancy pelosi to lead they’ll never get our vote. With leaders like jerry nadler who craps his pants on stage during a news conference and the numbskull who lies through his teeth every time he opens his mouth, I can’t trust anything they say. The Democrats use to represent the people back in the Kennedy era, now they represent themselves.

  10. AWM

    Tennessee should be really proud to have such an upstanding “goober” as a representative.

  11. – He who has no hair should not make Clairol jokes.
    – He who has no brains should not cll others stupid.
    – He who has no character should not mock others.
    – He who looks like he should be living in the trucvk of s tree, baking cookies, should not make fun of others.
    – He who is more of an embarrassment to TN than the meth addition problem, should just shut up and go away.

    Mr. Cohen , you sir , need to stop denying the massive cheating and fraudulent activity that have been perpetrated by the Democrats during this election. If Biden does win , it will be by a very thin margin. Democracy in America is shared among all people. Because the Democrats don’t get to have total and complete reign is far from a destruction of democracy. 73 million voters get to have a voice , too.

  13. Kevin

    Steve Cohen is an out of touch elitist who couldn’t “read the writing on the wall” if it was flashing neon sign!

    Regular people are sick and tired of being used and are waking up to what has been going on. Didn’t he see how poorly House Democrats did in south Florida and Texas? It’s just a matter of time before some bright, articulate, young, “person of color” challenges and beats his sorry “honky” behind, and starts putting Memphis folk in front of Cohen cronies!

    Plus, Cohen doesn’t get the fact that Donald Trump is so very popular because he stand up for us “little people”, against con men like him!

  14. David S. Blackwell RN, BSN

    See you in court Mr. Cohen. You might want to cover that bald head, lest you catch a cold (Covid-19).

  15. mikey whipwreck

    he may be the worst person in Tennessee.

    he’s certainly the worst politician

  16. CapnDad

    Cohen is a communist tool for the left.

    Canada is building Covid camps and there Government website had bids for hydro Guillotines ! Now if we put 2&2 together we can come up with China has control over Canada and they plan to build camps for the Americans who say no to the new vaccine. For any na sayer or my favorite is the conspiracy theory. Well do some real homework not social media and don’t let the mocking bird media lead you to deception or maybe worse death. We as Americans need to try and wake people up but if there asleep box they choose to be well good written!

Ps : Tennessee is not stupid we know all CDC does is make viruses and they made covid19!as well! Dr. Fauci is a criminal !

If these pos keep this shit up we know what is next ! There building Covid camps ! Gee I bet we can trust them , they would never lie about R and put them in camps ? Better thank again !

    1. Ron Welch

      As their leftist guru counseled, “accuse others of what you do.” They constantly default to racist accusations because they are the racists. As Biden said to a black interviewer, “if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black!” Wow!

      1. Ron Welch

        That counselor was Saul Alinsky.
