DON’T YOU FLIP: Trump Starts Saturday With a Scrambling Defense of (or Warning to?) Michael Cohen

Someone (maybe a lawyer?) should tell Donald Trump about the negative consequences of looking and acting guilty.

This morning, the President jumped on Twitter, as is his habit, in order to tweet a bunch of things that his staff will later have to explain and makes excuses for. In this case, lashing out about his personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Or warning him?

Take a look:

He’s referring to this story by Maggie Haberman of course.



Now I don’t know about y’all, but I think you can take this three different ways.

1) He’s just brainlessly lashing out on Twitter because he can and he’s annoyed.
2) He’s worried and is hoping to sweat the reporters into easing up.
3) He’s worried and warning Cohen with a back-handed defense that says “you better keep your dirty mouth shut.”

It’s also kind of funny he says “Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble” considering that’s exactly what he said to James Comey about the best way to deal with reporters. Lock ’em up until they flip on their sources. He believes in that. He believes it works.

So when he mentions that exact thing with Cohen, sounds to me Like he thinks it will work. And he’s telling Cohen “I’m watching you.”

Let’s see what Hannity says about it.

In any case, it’s just another example of why Twitter and the President can be both good and bad. I’d rather he just kept quiet about his legal troubles and taunted North Korea some more.
