President Trump’s disgraced former attorney Michael Cohen has made it clear that he’s so over his former boss. And yet, Cohen can’t seem to stop talking about Trump. In September, he released a scathing memoir entitled Disloyal: A Memoir – The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, which depicted Trump as a power-mad lunatic behind closed doors. He described the outgoing President as a “cult leader” during an interview with NBC News, warning that Trump will do whatever it takes to retain office (to be fair, he was right on the money there). “Donald Trump cares for no one or anything other than himself,” Cohen advised at the time.
According to The United States Department of Justice, the President’s former attorney was given a three-year prison sentence in 2018 after he pleaded guilty to various financial crimes, including tax evasion and campaign finance violations related to payments he orchestrated “to silence” two of Trump’s alleged mistresses, “thereby intending to influence the 2016 presidential election.” He was later released and ordered to home confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although Cohen wrote a book about Trump and testified against him in Congress, the disgraced lawyer has even more opinions to share about his former boss.
Trump's former lawyer reckons Melania is in it for the long haul
Pending a seemingly unending stream of election-related lawsuits, President Trump will leave the White House in January 2021. But there is speculation he’ll be going it alone thereafter, as Melania will surely be ditching him now, right? Not so, according to many Trump insiders.
Disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen told The Washington Post, “She’s very willingly complicit in his schemes and holds his beliefs as her own.” He added, “Those two deserve each other.” The first lady’s former bestie, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, agreed, telling the outlet that her role as “the soft” one is all just “part of the show.” Melania’s former chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, hit back even harder, calling divorce speculation “pathetic and exactly why people no longer trust the mainstream media.” Mary Jordan, author of The Art of Her Deal: The Untold Story of Melania Trump and her colleague Jada Yaun advised that divorce is simply “wishful thinking,” via Voz Wire. They argued, “Maybe Melania is similar to America: a big part of her admires Donald Trump, even if another part of her is appalled by him.”
It’s difficult to judge where their relationship stands, however, as the Trumps aren’t exactly affectionate in public, as Donald’s many rebuffed attempts to hold Melania’s hand can attest. Likewise, reports suggest the couple doesn’t even share a bed anymore — in fact, their bedrooms aren’t even in the same wing of the White House. But hey, that worked for Lucy and Desi, right?
