Without mentioning what happened yesterday, Trump just took a jab at Michael Cohen on Twitter this morning:
If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!
That’s his only tweet so far today. I’m not expecting any more on the topic.
Twitter was quick to poke fun at Trump:
This tweet is understatedly great, although very low energy https://t.co/PFDfcTszxt— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) August 22, 2018
Also, how many dozen people told him exactly this when he told them years ago, “I’m thinking of hiring Michael Cohen”? https://t.co/PFDfcTszxt— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) August 22, 2018
If only you had taken this advice a long time ago... https://t.co/fU3xAfkkwH— Jack in the East (@talkradio200) August 22, 2018
You mean if anyone is looking for a good jailhouse lawyer? https://t.co/NAcCQxNUC1— Connie Hair 🇺🇸 (@ConnieHair) August 22, 2018
Actually I am looking for a good president, who would you recommendhttps://t.co/VDJ5wCNPsS— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) August 22, 2018
And thus begins a new day.
UPDATE: I was wrong. Trump just defended Manafort and took another shot at Cohen:
I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family. “Justice” took a 12 year old tax case, among other things, applied tremendous pressure on him and, unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to “break” – make up stories in order to get a “deal.” Such respect for a brave man!
As Ben Shapiro points out…
Very strange that Trump continues to defend Manafort, who has not implicated him in anything. https://t.co/oqbaLkFHjm— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 22, 2018
It is strange, but I think it’s because Trump feels that Manafort is still being loyal. We all know Trump loves him some loyalty.
Trump isn’t done yet…here’s two more tweets:
A large number of counts, ten, could not even be decided in the Paul Manafort case. Witch Hunt!
Michael Cohen plead guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime. President Obama had a big campaign finance violation and it was easily settled!
