Cohen drops Trump attorney label on social media

Davis was referring to ABC's publication on Monday of an interview with Cohen in which he vowed to defend himself and protect his family and country first if Trump or the president's legal team tried to discredit him.

"Like most of America, I have been following the matter regarding Michael Cohen with great interest", Davis said in a statement late Thursday.

This isn't the first time Cohen has done something Trump-related. Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity.

Sacha Baron Cohen made his name through putting important people through squirm-inducing interviews at the start of the Noughties, and now it looks like the British comedian could be back on the pranks in a new show. In the the 2016 satirical comedy "Grimsby", which Baron Cohen starred in and co-wrote, Trump becomes infected with HIV after Daniel Radcliffe's blood is sprayed into his mouth due to a gunshot.

Donald Trump's former lawyer has removed all references to Donald Trump from his social media biographies.


The caustic snippets in the video refer back to an incident in 2012, when Cohen crashed the Oscars as part of the promotion for his movie The Dictator, and dumped "ashes" onto E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. Cohen's clip ends by throwing shade at the infamous Trump University.

Davis was special counsel for Clinton from 1996 to 1998 during campaign finance investigations. Under the guise of Ali G, the self-proclaimed "voice of da yoof", Cohen would interview unsuspecting celebrities and often catch them saying embarrassing things. He also denied the President's claims that the Federal Bureau of Investigation treated him poorly when he was raided, calling the agents "respectful, courteous, and professional".

The comments marked a notable contrast from Cohen's previous statements about Trump.

"Being quiet is just not in his nature", the friend said, adding that Cohen has so far been going against his "natural instincts" by laying low.

If you were wondering why the world seemed more peaceful yesterday, it's because those people up in the United States of A were celebrating the day of their independence, when they overcame an alien invasion and taught the world how to fight back against colonisation.
