The Trump Organization’s prickly attorney Michael Cohen embodies two of the Trump campaign’s core principles—an aversion to both facts and the journalists who deal in them. During an on-air interview Tuesday, Cohen objected when CNN anchor Brianna Keilar referred to the campaign’s leadership changes this week as a “shakeup,” then childishly refused to acknowledge that Trump is down in the polls (actually it’s hard to find a poll that has him up).

After the interview, Cohen told Yahoo News he believed he “controlled the interview.” “I think I unraveled her,” he said.
I couldn’t help but be reminded of another attorney from years ago named Nathan Thurm. (Thurm starts at about :20 in the below clip.)
