‘It Is On, People’: Twitter Reacts to Trump Going to War With Former Lawyer Michael Cohen

Tensions between President Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen exploded into a public fight on Friday, after a week in which it became apparent Cohen had turned on his former client — and Trump fired back.

Trump is under pressure over the news that Cohen is claiming he personally authorized his son’s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer at Trump Tower, something the president has denied many times. Trump has gone on a Twitter rampage in light of this development, slamming Robert Mueller for scrutinizing his tweets while saying Cohen is “trying to make up stories” to get himself out of trouble.

Now, since the president and his former attorney are both accusing each other of lying, it only adds a new dimension of intrigue and questions about Trump’s connection to Russia — and whether Cohen is prepared to tell-all to the Special Counsel.
