Donald Trump’s (sometimes) attorney Michael Cohen has asserted his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the criminal case against him in the U.S. Southern District of New York. Stormy Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, broke down the historic nature of Cohen’s actions.

Now seems like the perfect time to look back at what President Big Mouth had to say about the Fifth Amendment during the campaign. He made it a central issue at numerous events and even a debate with Hillary Clinton.

“The mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Here’s roughly 60 seconds of Donald Trump and his take on the Fifth Amendment. Roll tape!

And doesn’t that say it all!

  1. Trump does not even have the depth to understand why Arpaio is still treated like a criminal since he pardoned him.
    He only understands he ‘should’ have unlimited power, and anything that prevents that is a function of his own arrogance, denial, and limited knowledge.
