What a Creep
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!
