My new favorite podcast!!💖 💖 💖
As a recovering alcoholic (33 years), I'm all about redemption and (hopefully) forgiveness. Mr Cohen has certainly been through the wringer, peeled the proverbial scales from his eyes, admitted his wrong doing, and gotten on with life.
It's so great to hear him "unfiltered" and really passionate, I love his MSNBC et al appearances and analysis, but I've always felt he seemed 'restrained' in his presentations.
I also imagine this is much more his everyday speech and why he was known as the Orange Idiot's "bulldog and fixer" - now he's using his talents in a better way.
Bravo Mr Cohen, bravo!!!💖 💖 💖 ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ ☕️ ☕️
