What a Creep; Roy Cohn (Season 4, Episode 9)

What a Creep

Roy Cohn

Season 4, Episode 9

Roy Cohn is one of the most influential lawyers to have ever practiced in the United States. Linked closely with McCarthyism and never accepting responsibility for its defeat– Cohn was a self-described patriot who felt the ends justified the means.

He was the professional mentor of current our President and his pugnacious attitude and complete lack of a moral compass during the 50s-80s predicated the world we live in now.

  • He was a self-hating Jew who attacked Jews.
  • A gay man who prosecuted homosexuals
  • A lawyer who broke the law frequently and ripped off his clients

 So, let’s learn about him now!
