Mika Brzezinski said she knew the cause of President Trump frenetic morning on Twitter — Michael Cohen.
On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski suggested that the stress of the president’s former lawyer’s possible cooperation with prosecutors was getting to Trump.
“The president is all over the place, ricocheting wildly,” she said. “This is because of Michael Cohen. Cohen is driving him nuts. So he must deflect in any way he can, but of course not talk about Stormy Daniels or Michael Cohen.”
“Or Vladimir Putin,” said Scarborough in concurrence.
It certainly was a busy morning for Trump on Twitter, with the president tweeting in all sorts of things. As the show noted, Trump hit out at Rep. Maxine Waters, MS-13, Democrats, the fake news, President Obama and many others.
On Monday, ABC published highlights of Cohen’s first on-the-record interview since his home and office were raided by the FBI. In his conversation with network host George Stephanopoulos, Cohen warned that his loyalty is to his family and country.
“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” said Cohen. “I put family and country first.”
Cohen made the statement about his family “with emphasis,” according to Stephanopoulos who relayed the moment on “Good Morning America.”
In the past, Trump’s former attorney has expressed his devotion to the president, even once saying he would take a bullet for him if it came to it.
