We have become so inculcated to Trump's jaw dropping language we can sometimes shrug.
But we should pause here.
To call someone a "rat" is the language of the Mob, yet here we have it in a POTUS official White House Press Release.
Just staggering, and past presidents, most especially GOP ones, will be spinning in their graves at the gutter level language of a President.
But far more importantly, look at the context, look at what the use of this word means.
"Rat" refers to someone who is telling the truth about criminal behaviour of a friend or associate.
Trump is admitting therefore that Cohen is telling the truth. Trump's problem is therefore with Cohen "ratting", not that he is telling lies (which of course he isn't)
Imagine if the Garda commissioner tweeted that Maurice Mc Cabe was a "rat"
He'd be sacked on the spot.
But Trump, "meh"?
