As you’re reading what transpired here, remember that Trump always hires the best people. Always!
Former lawyer to President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, is no longer playing on the same team as the Donald. Instead, he’s telling people to vote for candidates that will end Trump’s “craziness.”
“Listen, here’s my recommendation: grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, get to the polls,” he told a CNN reporter Friday, “because if not, you’re gonna have another two or another six years of this craziness, so make sure you vote.”

What’s even worse is that Cohen’s own lawyers recently revealed that Cohen switched his political party preference from Republican to Democrat, a move that some say is done purely for political gain.
“I’ve been Democrat pretty much my whole entire life,” Cohen said. “(I) switched because of the request from the RNC. Couldn’t be the vice chair of the RNC and be a Democrat.”
According to the Washington Times, Cohen was a Democrat during the presidential primaries in 2016 and was unable to vote for Trump in the New York primary.
Now, Cohen is willing to actively campaign for Democrats and against Trump in the 2020 campaign, according to reporting by CNN.
His comments Friday were the first on-camera remarks he’s made since he pleaded guilty in two campaign finance charges. He indirectly indicted the president, saying he made illegal payments “in coordination with, and at the direction of, a candidate for federal office.”
So let’s set the record straight. This is Trump’s former (and longtime) lawyer telling everyone to come out and vote in the midterms or face the brutal consequences of inaction.
When Trump said that he only hires the best people, maybe he wasn’t lying. Micheal Cohen is finally making sense.
