One of Donald Trump’s Top Advisers Just Lost It on CNN—and the Video Is Hilarious

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.


Donald Trump is getting smoked in the polls right now because he has run the most inept campaign in the history of campaigns and also he’s a fundamentally unlikable racist who lies a lot.

So with that being the state of the race on this balmy Wednesday, the 17th of August in the year of our Lord 2016, Michael Cohen, one of Donald Trump’s top advisers, went on CNN to talk about how his boss is great and has very pretty eyes and is totally going to win. Anchor Brianna Keilar asked Cohen about these polls that say the exact opposite. Cohen was not having any of it!

Watch what happens when the unstoppable force of stupidity meets the unmovable object of reality.

“All of them.”

What a time to be alive.

UPDATE UPDATE: Oh my God, the full interview is even more insane.

THE BIG PICTURE

You expect the big picture, and it's our job at Mother Jones to give it to you. And right now, so many of the troubles we face are the making not of a virus, but of the quest for profit, political or economic (and not just from the man in the White House who could have offered leadership and comfort but instead gave us bleach).

In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," we unpack what the coronavirus crisis has meant for journalism, including Mother Jones’, and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support our nonprofit journalism with a donation: We've scoured our budget and made the cuts we can without impairing our mission, and we hope to raise $400,000 from our community of online readers to help keep our big reporting projects going because this extraordinary pandemic-plus-election year is no time to pull back.
