*During an appearance Wednesday on CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight,” President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen speaks at length about #45’s racism, which he says is very real and longstanding.

“I’m not really sure why people don’t get it. Donald Trump is a racist,” said Cohen. “His sister [Mary Trump] said it. His oldest sister [Maryanne Trump] said it. I’m saying it. [Melania Trump’s former senior advisor] Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is saying it. Everybody who technically knows him is telling you that the man is a racist.”

Cohen, currently making the rounds to promote his new book “Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump,” went on to cite specific examples of Trump’s racist behavior.

*Finally, we’re getting word that former US President Barack Obama‘s long-awaited memoir is set to go on sale starting November 17, two weeks after this year’s presidential election.  It’s also worth noting that the tome will come in two parts.

Volume one is titled “A Promised Land” and according to publisher Penguin Random House, the book will trace Obama from his childhood through his first term in the White House, culminating in the death of Osama bin Laden.

“There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one. I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in ‘A Promised Land’ I’ve tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office,” Obama said in a statement.

“Along with being a fun and informative read, I hope more than anything that the book inspires young people across the country – and around the globe – to take up the baton, lift up their voices, and play their part in remaking the world for the better,” the former president added.
