You have to give Michael Cohen, Prznint Stupid’s Stupidest Lawyer™ (Sorry Rudy!), some credit as a fixer.
Remember the other day when we noted that the Grifter Apprentice’s master plan was to rig an online poll (and subsequently stiffed of the Liberty University rat-eff’er who rigged it in the most Xristian way, Praise Jeebus!)?
Today we learned that the pride of Thomas M. Cooley Law School used his degree to further his boss’, um, death march into the White House: he threatened to sue CNBC because they didn’t rank The Russian Usurper higher as a top bidnessman.
“Donald Trump and his then-attorney Michael Cohen pressured CNBC in 2014 to place the real-estate tycoon higher in its list of the country’s top business leaders after Mr. Cohen failed to manipulate the rankings in Mr. Trump’s favor, according to people familiar with the matter.
“Mr. Cohen called CNBC and threatened that Mr. Trump would sue over his poor standing in the ranking, arguing that the news channel was “ignoring the will of the people,” the people familiar with the matter said. CNBC didn’t respond to the threat, and Mr. Trump didn’t sue. Mr. Cohen didn’t respond to requests for comment. Mr. Trump also called network executives to complain, the people familiar with the matter said, in addition to griping publicly on Twitter about it.”
The Wall Street Journal’s request for comment from Comrade Stupid resulted in a statement that will stand the test of time from this stupid era:
“The president stands by his tweets.”
