Donald Trump’s attack dog attorney, Michael Cohen, had a major bone to pick with CNN’s Brianna Keilar on her program Wednesday afternoon. In typical lawyer fashion, Cohen had an issue with semantics. He was upset with how the media was characterizing the shake up which resulted in Trump appointing new campaign leaders. Cohen insisted that the “change up” was not, in fact, “a shake up.” Earlier today, Trump’s campaign announced Stephen Bannon, the head of Breitbart News, would become Trump’s campaign chief executive, and Kellyanne Conway would take over as the campaign manager. During the segment, Keilar pushed back saying the campaign was “down.” Cohen pushed back: “says who?” Keilar replied “polls.” And things, well, got pretty awkward.
Watch below (tensions really start right off the top and around 5:20):
Michael Cohen is Executive Vice President and Special Counsel to Donald J. Trump. He has been notoriously aggressive defending Trump against media, threatening to sue multiple organizations over stories (including this one). Interestingly, he was a registered Democrat who voted for Barack Obama in 2008.
