The Katie Phang Present
8:29 am EDT
KATIE PHANG: Michael, good morning, thanks for becoming a member of us. How did it really feel to observe Tuesday’s arraignment of Donald Trump on 34 felony counts of falsification of enterprise data?
MICHAEL COHEN: You realize, it is fascinating, as a result of so many individuals contacted me, whether or not it was by, you understand, social media or texting, they’re all saying, this should really feel nice! Lastly there’s vindication.
And, that is not how I felt. It is not how I felt in any respect. I am glad that accountability is lastly at Donald’s doorstep. However on the finish of the day, it is a very unhappy day for America, in the truth that, you understand, he is the primary president in U.S. historical past to be indicted.
PHANG: Michael, you informed Robert Costa that you just anticipated to see quote, full and whole mayhem at Trump’s arraignment. And but, there was a complete dud there. Only a few supporters and no protests.
However we did see Trump slink again to Mar-a-Lago instantly after that court docket listening to. Your ideas on why Trump did not attempt to grandstand whereas he was in New York Metropolis
COHEN: Nicely, to begin with, that is one prediction that I couldn’t be happier that I bought incorrect. I imply, I have been proper on so many predictions. That is one which I am ecstatic.
I imply, the tens and tens of Trump supporters that have been there. Together with, you understand, Marjorie “Bathroom” Greene, who simply sat there and, you understand, the second she bought to New York, she bought the nice outdated Bronx cheer and so they ran her proper out. I believe she was right here for all 30 seconds. She realized there was no help.
And the identical factor with George Santos. I imply, he is, he is one other one which bought booted out of the downtown space extraordinarily shortly.
The one factor that, in fact, that all of us noticed, and on Donald can say no matter he desires. We additionally noticed the look on his face because the door slammed, and you understand, the police officer did not even maintain the door for him as he waw coming by means of.
You could possibly see the look of, not simply anger, however concern, full and whole concern in his eyes. And that is why he wanted to run again instantly to Mar-a-Lago, in order that he may go forward, and he may, you understand, inflate that to deflated ego of his, by having, what, dinner with Marjorie taylo Taylor Greene and, you understand, Matt Gaetz, and surrounded by all of these ridiculous acolytes and followers. Lots of whom have been most likely workers that stuffed, you understand, the ballroom there, when he went on to do precisely what Decide Merchan informed him to not do. Instructed him, cease with the violence, cease with the hatre speech, cease with the assaults on people. Whether or not it is himself, which means the choose, whether or not it is, you understand, the attorneys, the prosecutors, Alvin Bragg himself, any of the witnesses. Donald, Donald refused to abide by Decide Merchan’s guidelines. And that is simply who Donald Trump is.
HANG: However Michael, to your level, do you assume that we will see a gag order on this case, seeing how Trump can’t management himself and maintain his mouth shut.
COHEN: Yeah, I actually hope not, as a result of that may fall proper into Donald’s playbook. Once more, do not forget, I used to be concerned in writing a lot of that playbook early on. If the truth is the Decide Merchan goes forward and places a gag order, the very first thing that Donald will do is have his counsel file for a declare, or make a movement for a violation of his First Modification constitutional rights. One thing he is aware of very effectively, which is what “Revenge” [one of Cohen’s anti-Trump books] is basically all about. How, you understand, Donald Trump will weaponize the Division of Justice, and he’ll use that to gradual the case down.
On high of that, he’ll use it, no matter how the results of that case comes out, he’ll then use it to attempt to have the Decide Merchan recused. After which attempt to compound his, you understand, nonsensical request to have the case moved to someplace else. Someplace that he deems to be extra favorable. So, I actually hope that, you understand, they do not fall into that entice. As a result of that is precisely what Donald is pondering proper now
PHANG: You realize Michael, I need to take a flip to one thing a little bit bit extra critical. You and I’ve spoken about this concept, which we are able to tune in and switch the TV off if we do not need to watch this anymore, this being the Trump saga. You realize, a few of us could cease watching the Katie Phang Present, transfer on their day on Saturday, after which perhaps overlook about —
COHEN: Why would anyone, why would anyone try this? Why would anyone cease watching the Katie Phang Present?
PHANG: Oh! Thanks for that time, however, you understand, Michael, you and your loved ones, you are dwelling this. And what I actually needed our viewers to know is the extent of vitriol, hatred, and the legit bodily threats towards your security and that of your loved ones that you’re struggling proper now due to Donald Trump.
COHEN: Nicely, it is true. I imply, sadly, we won’t shut it off, particularly, I am unable to shut if off. Now, whereas I am right here in New York Metropolis, and as an example 92, 93% of the entire individuals who cross me by on the street as I proceed to attempt to lead some semblance of a standard life, making an attempt to get again to my outdated life.
Individuals will come over and say, thanks for standing up for fact to energy, thanks for doing what you are doing. You realize, do not give up. It’s extremely straightforward to surrender. It is not really easy to remain within the, um, within the second as, sadly, I am compelled to be. However then there’s all the time these seven individuals out of 100 that, they simply, they’re MAGAs, and they’re true die-hard Trump supporters. I imply, the extent of the vitriol, as you have expressed, is off the charts. Particularly by means of social media, which is less complicated to disregard than the particular person on the road.
