Attorney Lanny Davis tries to plug crowdfunding campaign for his client’s legal fees and it doesn’t go well.
Donald Trump’s critics seem to be pretty pleased about Michael Cohen flipping on the president, but that doesn’t mean they’re ready to fork over their hard-earned money to help pay for Cohen’s legal expenses.
Megyn Kelly’s "Today" show audience erupted into loud laughter when Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, plugged his client’s GoFundMe campaign at the end of the interview.
"Could I just take one opportunity to remind everyone that Michael Cohen has suffered a tragic and difficult experience with his family," Davis said. "He’s without resources, and we’ve set up a website called MichaelCohenTruth.com, that we’re hoping that he will get some help from the American people so he can continue to tell the truth."
"The audience, they don’t appear ready to donate," Kelly told him.
But he persisted: "I would say the reaction of your audience may be that they’re not as intersted as getting the truth out about Donald Trump as many other people in the country. Approximately 60 percent of the country would not have the reaction of your audience."
The laughs then turned to groans and boos.
So far, the GoFundMe Davis set up for Cohen has raised $43,000 of its $500,000 goal. But when TooFab tried to visit the website Davis plugged, it automatically redirected to President Trump’s campaign site, www.DonaldJTrump.com. TooFab reached out to Davis’ office for clarification, and it appears he accidentally plugged the wrong URL name. The correct web address is www.MichaelCohenTruthFund.com, which redirects to the GoFundMe page.
President Trump’s former personal attorney pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court Tuesday to eight criminal counts, including tax fraud, false statements to a bank and campaign finance violations tied to his work for Trump. Cohen admitted "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office," he kept information he believed would have harmed his boss from becoming public during the 2016 election cycle. And yes, that reportedly includes that infamous $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, as well as a payment to former Playboy model named Karen McDougal.
