Michelle Goldberg of the NYT really slammed the lid down on the coffin of Cohn's reputation:

I just cannot get my head around the psychology that "there are good people among the white supremacists" is not a bridge too far, but tariffs are - "I can like suck up the white supremacy for a tax cut, but this is my red line."

Cohn had to stay in a year to keep his tax breaks on his severance package trust, same as Tillerson.

Gary Cohn's legacy: "I shot the tariff, but I did not shoot the white supremacy."
