    As He Heads to Harvard, Cohn Criticizes Shutdown I6ke0

    From The Boston Globe

    Michael Levenson of The Boston Globe wrote:
    As He Heads to Harvard, Cohn Criticizes Shutdown BBSnzur

    Gary Cohn, President Trump’s former top economic adviser, is sharply criticizing the government shutdown, as he heads to Harvard for a fellowship.

    In an interview with The Globe, Cohn called the shutdown, prompted by an impasse over Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion in border wall funding, “completely wrong,” and said the furloughing of thousands of federal workers “makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.”

    “I don’t understand what the outcome is here, and I don’t understand where we’re going with it,” said Cohn, a free-trade advocate who resigned last March after Trump announced he was imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. “I’m confused as to what the White House’s strategy is on this a little bit.”

    Cohn will be one of 10 new fellows at the Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics, a group that hopes to model civility and the free exchange of ideas at a time when bitter political divisions have led to the longest shutdown in history.

    A Democrat and former president of Goldman Sachs, Cohn will co-lead a study group with Heidi Heitkamp, a Democrat who just lost her Senate seat in North Dakota. The study group, called “The Real State of the Union,” will explore fiscal, health care, and trade policy.

    “When you lead with ideology and you paint yourself into a corner, you miss an opportunity to solve problems,” Heitkamp said in a phone interview with Cohn on Wednesday. “That’s a major theme of the work we’re doing with the IOP.”

    The list of fellows also includes:

    ■  Andrew Gillum, the former Democratic mayor of Tallahassee who hoped to become Florida’s first black governor last November but lost a close race to Republican Ron DeSantis, a Trump supporter.

    ■  Barbara Comstock of Virginia and Carlos Curbelo of Florida, two Republican House members in swing districts who lost their seats in November, when the Democrats reclaimed the House.

    ■  Mitch Landrieu, a former mayor of New Orleans who gained national attention for removing four Confederate monuments and has been mentioned as a potential Democratic presidential candidate.

    ■  Michael Nutter, a Democrat and former mayor of Philadelphia.

    ■  Aisha Moodie-Mills, a former president and chief executive of the Victory Fund, which seeks to elect LGBTQ candidates.

    ■  Catherine Russell, a former ambassador-at-large for Global Women’s Issues under President Obama.

    ■  Michael Zeldin, CNN legal analyst and former Justice Department official.

    Cohn’s appointment is noteworthy because the institute faced a backlash in 2017 when it named as fellows two other Trump aides: Corey Lewandowski, the president’s former campaign manager, and Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary.

    More than 2,600 Harvard alumni signed an open letter calling on the university to rescind the fellowships. The letter accused the institute of giving moral and intellectual legitimacy to “those who have done much to degrade public discourse in this country, re-ignite white nationalism, and further reactionary policies that harm millions.”

    Kennedy School officials did not rescind the fellowships for Lewandowski and Spicer. School officials have emphasized that they want to bring fellows from across the political spectrum to Cambridge, in hopes of sparking debate and challenging students.

    That’s why the latest group includes Republicans and Democrats, activists and elected officials, said Mark Gearan, the institute’s director.

    “This is quite an extraordinary group that will be here that I think really matches the times in which we live,” Gearan said. “These are divisive and challenging times so our role is all the more important.”

    No surprise here.

    As went Day 27 of the Partial Government Shutdown, we hear from a former Trump economic adviser and HE'S saying that this shutdown is wrong.  When you have 800,000 people either sitting at home wondering when their next paycheck is coming, or literally working for free, all for a wall, that he (Trump) swore up an down (then doubled back on) saying that MEXICO would pay for it ("and be happy about it").  I've heard it said numerous times. Trump is holding the government hostage for a wall.  In two weeks, he is supposed to deliver the State of the Union Address.  Here's a spoiler: The State of The Union is that we are shut down, and we can thank Donald Trump for the most part.

    Just Saying.
