Like many of the president’s former “friends,” Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen has now become his worst nightmare. Not only has Cohen turned on his old boss, but things are getting more and more personal.
It wasn’t enough for Cohen to keep suggesting that he would flip and give up incriminating information about Trump. Now, it seems as though Cohen is actively trying to hurt Trump by speaking out against Trump’s presidency and praising his enemies and harshest critics. Last night, Cohen fired off a supportive tweet about one of the people Trump fears most — former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Cohen was glued to the television last night, watching Michelle’s “20/20” interview, and was so inspired that he took to social media to praise her (and make a not-so-subtle jab at Trump). Cohen tweeted:
Watching Becoming @MichelleObama on #abc2020 and pray that her words bring back unity to our country.

And that’s just the latest in a long string of stunning moves Cohen has made to distance himself from Trump. Recently, Cohen has also re-registered as a Democrat, and even told Americans to vote blue so this country could avoid “another two or another six years of this craziness.”
We’re not sure which part of Michelle’s interview had inspired Cohen to post that tweet, but she made several comments that would have terrified Trump. When Michelle was asked what comes to her mind when she hears about Trump and his administration, she said:
Being the commander-in-chief is a hard job. And you need to have discipline and you need to read and you need to be knowledgeable. You need to know history, you need to be careful with your words. But voters make those decisions. And once the voters have spoken, you know, we live with what we live with.”
And then, she gave a beautiful statement about what she hoped her legacy will be:
Young people are the future. And if my story, my journey, somehow gives them hope, if I played a role in that for some young people comin’ down the line, then I’ll feel good about it.”
Clearly, Cohen is missing the Obamas just as much as most of this country is.
