Christie: Why Are No Republicans Defending Trump?

“The interesting thing is that there hasn’t been one Republican yet who has tried to defend the president on the substance, and I think that’s something that should be concerning to the White House. Why are no Republicans standing up and defending the president on the substance?”

Bag Man Cohen Paid to Rig Polls for Trump

$50,000

President Trump’s former fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen paid a technology expert to rig online polls in Trump’s favor, the Wall Street Journal reports. John Gauger, the owner of Red Finch Solutions and chief information officer at Liberty University, said Cohen offered him $50,000 to rig two online polls. Cohen handed Gauger a Walmart bag loaded with about $12,000 in cash during a 2015 meeting at Cohen’s Trump Organization office, but he never paid him the remainder of the promised $50,000.

Dat Damned Dem!

The Democratic Party is where it’s at.
It’s the Big Tent Party and all that.
They don’t care what you’ve done,
They’ll take anyone.
Indeed, Michael Cohen just registered Democrat.

Big Paulie Rolls

So far, there’s been 40 indictments, all tolled,
And Papadopolis and Cohen have come in from the cold.
But the day we’ll remember,
Come 2020’s November,
Is the day that Paul Manafort rolled.

Buryin’ the Cohen

Man, Donald Trump is pissed at Michael Cohen
For violating the trust that Trump thinks Cohen owes him.
First Mike records his calls,
And then has the unmitigated balls
To give the tape to Trump’s media archenemy, CNN.
