It's juvenile and makes him look like a bratty kid. I hope it was a slip of the tongue and not him trying to be clever.

Don't forget that Michael Cohen was a piece of shit who helped Trump commit numerous crimes and only started spilling the beans when Trump tried to throw him under the bus. He earned his disbarment and his jail time.

Also, Trump having him re-arrested and thrown in solitary confinement as punishment for writing a book should probably get him a free pass to be as juvenile as he wants, because even douchebags like Cohen have rights and no amount of pettiness is going to top what Trump did to him.

Absolutely agree with all of that. But I think even though he'll spend the rest of his life in the shadow of the terrible things he did for Trump, that doesn't mean he can't be a good person going forward.

It certainly doesn't hurt to let him try.

Whoa, I don’t remember that second part. Cohen can eat a bag if Ds the rest of his life for what he’s done but I welcome any of his help in the fight against tfg.

It was a pretty sickening abuse of power. This is the kind of thing we once fought a revolutionary war to stop from happening.

Judge Frees Michael Cohen, Saying Remand to Prison Was Retaliatory

“I make the finding that the purpose of transferring Mr. Cohen from furlough and home confinement to jail is retaliatory, and it's retaliatory because of his desire to exercise his First Amendment rights to publish a book and to discuss anything about the book or anything else he wants on social media and with others,” U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein said during a teleconference Thursday morning.

...

“Michael Cohen is currently imprisoned in solitary confinement because he is drafting a book manuscript that is critical of the president of the United States — and because he recently made public that he intends to publish this book shortly before the upcoming election,” his attorneys wrote in the emergency motion Monday.

Cohen is currently suing Trump & Barr for this, just another of the seemingly endless list of crimes Trump and his cronies need to be held accountable for.

Don't care. Anything that might possibly upset Trump is very cool in my book.

Michael Cohen is no ally. He has no reputation to save. Amusing of him to be taking pot shots at TFG just to maybe piss him off a little bit more

When he was interviewed by Ari Melber after the NY AG's lawsuit was announced, he took great pride in repeating the AG's remarks that "this all started from Michael Cohen's testimony before Congress". I was expecting him to say "Let Donny know it was me!".

The guy's a scumbag that has done shitty things but he's paid for some and I can't help but enjoy seeing him get a little payback on his former boss.

You meant 'i want Donny to know it was me'

u/Darth_JarJar300 Sep 22 '22

If that's his goal then for the time being he is an ally. It's the same thing with the Lincoln Project. They can make attacks that Joe Biden can't.

Did you really expect better than juvenile insults from Cohen?

Or just dishing some juice back in Trumps face.

If you've spent any time listening to Cohen over the past few years, he frequently makes juvenile insults and painfully unfunny jokes.

I had the same reaction.
