President Donald Trump had kept his lips zipped about Stormy Daniels — until Friday, that is, when reporters asked him why his attorney, Michael Cohen, paid the porn star $130,000 — allegedly out of his own pocket.
”You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney,” said Trump, insisting he didn’t know where Cohen got the money to make the payment or why it was made.
On Monday, the FBI raided Cohen’s Manhattan office, and judging from a sneak peek at Monday’s edition of Global‘s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, the host was downright giddy about the turn of events.
“He knows nothing!” Colbert marvelled about Trump in his monologue. “Trump trusts his lawyer so much he lets him do stuff he doesn’t know about in his name, for reasons he does not understand!”
Noting that Trump “said, on camera, ‘You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen,’” Colbert asked, “Guess who watches TV? Robert Mueller. Because today, on a tip from Mueller, the FBI raided Cohen’s office seizing records related to several topics, including payments to a pornographic film actress.”
Quipped Colbert: “And, remember, Michael Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels out of his own pocket. Which is crazy! Who pays for porn?”
