Michael Cohen, who served as Donald Trump’s attorney and fixer for more than a decade, had a clear recommendation for attorneys who might consider working with the former president.
As Trump is reportedly facing an impending indictment over a hush money payment to adult actor Stormy Daniels, for which Cohen himself was convicted and sent to prison, the attorney told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Friday:
“The smartest thing a lawyer can do when Donald Trump asks you to represent him in this nightmare he’s about to live: run.”
“Run as fast as you can. And don’t run to Florida, let alone Palm Beach. Run east or west anywhere, but definitely don’t get involved with Donald. I’d say that,” he added.

Cohen said Trump has so far avoided accountability, always throwing those around him under the bus.
The revolving door of lawyers now working with Trump is a “clown show,” Cohen continued. He imagined them “getting out of a Mini Cooper with floppy shoes and a red nose because what they’re saying doesn’t make sense”.
Video of new Trump attorney Joe Tacopina attempting to snatch a piece of paper from MSNBC’s Ari Melber during an interview went viral this week.
“There are so many more people (Trump) in relation to lawyers that the big joke that’s out there now is that ‘MAGA’ really stands for ‘Make lawyers get lawyers’ and unfortunately that really is the truth.” , he added .
