Steve Cohen Likens Whitaker to Luca Brasi from the ‘The Godfather’

‘I just think he was given certain talking points and he stayed on message’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

COHEN: "Well, it’s hard to say. It was kind of like — would you say Luca Brasi was being disrespectful, or Luca Brasi just kind of didn’t understand things? And he was kind of Luca Brasi-esque. I don’t think he’s very swift, and he did even with the Republicans, sometimes had the same stock start to his answers of saying congressman, I really thank you for asking that question. And then finally, David Cicilline said let’s get through the thank you stuff, don’t say thank you. And it was all a time-killer and they had coached him, and they coached him, I guess where I know that question’s important to you because he used that to Mr. Jordan on the Republican side and others as well. I just think he was given certain talking points and he stayed on message."
