President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen appeared to take a jab at the commander-in-chief on Sunday evening after tweeting a few words of admiration towards former First Lady Michelle Obama.
ABC’s “20 20” special aired over the weekend discussing Obama’s upcoming memoir “Becoming.” During the interview, she openly spoke about her willingness to uplift the younger generation despite the current divisiveness in the country.
“Being the commander in chief is a hard job,” said the former FLOTUS. “And you need to have discipline and you need to read and you need to be knowledgeable. You need to know history. You need to be careful with your words.”
She added, “But voters make those decisions. … And once the voters have spoken, you know, we live with what we live with.”
Cohen, who’s recently opposed Trump by urging folks to vote in order to avoid more “craziness”, was also tuned into ABC on Sunday. He seemingly was impressed by Obama’s words and tweeted, “Watching Becoming @MichelleObama on #abc2020 and pray that her words bring back unity to our country.”
Trump announced in June, that Cohen was no longer his lawyer after the attorney fell under criminal investigation in New York. Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts of tax and bank fraud. He was also found in violation of campaign-finance abuse but implied that it was to pay off Trump’s alleged mistresses Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal in 2006 which the president denied.
In a passage of Obama’s new memoir, she took Trump head on and said she’ll “never forgive him” for putting her children and husband former president Barack Obama lives at risk due to his “loud and reckless innuendos.”
