Trump 'fired' Obama lookalike in RNC video parody & said 'predecessor only got into Harvard due to affirmative action'
DONALD Trump "fired" a Barack Obama lookalike in an RNC parody video, saying the only reason his predecessor got into Harvard was because of "affirmative action."
In "Disloyalty: A Memoir," the bombshell memoir written by his former lawyer Michael Cohen, the convicted criminal has detailed Trump's obsessive hatred of Obama.
Discussing the explosive book this week, Cohen said he felt Trump would "start a war" to stay in power and expressed his increasing concern about what he'd do if he was beaten by Democrat Joe Biden.
In his touted tome – which is out on September 8 – Cohen also quotes Trump as saying Obama only got into Columbia University and Harvard Law School because of "f***ing affirmative action," reported CNN and the Washington Post.
Affirmative Action is a policy in which someone's color, race, sex, religion or national origin are taken into account to increase opportunities for underrepresented minorities.
The White House denied Cohen's explosive accusations, telling the Post he was just "a disgraced felon and disbarred lawyer, who lied to Congress."
But Cohen claimed Trump loathed Obama so much he hired a lookalike "Fauxbama" to "ritualistically belittle" the first black president and then fire him.
A still from the video shows the now president sitting at his Trump Tower desk in New York City across from a man who is supposed to be Obama.
Two books, one with Obama's name on the front, sit on the desk in The Apprentice-style parody.
Reports indicate that it was supposed to be aired at the 2013 Republican National Convention in Tampa that year, but GOP members deemed it to be too controversial.
But Breitbart obtained the footage which saw Trump slam Obama's presidential record, his wanting business knowledge, and lacklustre golf game his lack of business experience, and his golf game.
“It looks like you’ve never really managed people before,” Trump said. “You’ve never run a business. Who hired you?”
The exchange culminated in reality star-turned-POTUS telling Fauxbama "you're fired."
"They never put it on," Trump later told Breitbart. "The reason they didn't put it on is because they thought it was too controversial. Controversy. It might not be politically correct."
Cohen claimed that Trump went on several racist rants in his book, claiming he said "tell me one country run by a black person that isn't a s***hole. They are all complete f***ing toilets."
"I will never get the Hispanic vote," he is quoted as saying. "Like the blacks, they're too stupid to vote for Trump."
Cohen alleged that Trump also had a particular dislike for the South African leader Nelson Mandela and praised the Apartheid regime.
"Mandela f***ed the whole country up," he supposedly said, according to Cohen. "Now it's a s***hole. F*** Mandela. He was no leader."
In the book, Cohen's assessment of his former boss's character is withering, and he describes him as "a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man."
Cohen once vowed that he would "take a bullet" for his boss – but in the foreword of his book, he revealed Trump's "mob boss" mentality.
"Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did," Cohen wrote, taking credit for Trump's decision to run in 2015.
The Trump administration has repeatedly rubbished Cohen's allegations, telling the Post "he has lost all credibility, and it's unsurprising to see his latest attempt to profit off of lies."
But Cohen insisted he knew "the real real Donald Trump—the man very, very, very few people know."
"Not the billionaire celebrity savior of the country or lying lunatic, not the tabloid tycoon or self-anointed Chosen One, not the avatar @realdonaldtrump of Twitter fame," he wrote.
The first part of the touted tome was published on DisloyalTheBook.com on Thursday afternoon.
"He has no one he trusts to keep his secrets," it reads. "For ten years, he certainly had me, and I was always there for him, and look what happened to me."
Cohen, who acted as Trump's lawyer from 2006 to 2018, is currently under house arrest in New York.
He was disbarred and got three years in prison for campaign-finance crimes related to his work for Trump.
He will serve the rest of his term from home and is due for release in November 2021.
Cohen's book also references a few of his own startling wrongdoings related to his case.
"I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners, lied to his wife Melania to hide his sexual infidelities, and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened Trump's path to power," Cohen wrote.
"From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump's clandestine lovers, I wasn't just a witness to the president's rise—I was an active and eager participant."
