Trump Shouts Out MSNBC Chyron on Cohen Seeking a Pardon

President Donald Trump evidently spent some executive time Thursday afternoon tuned into MSNBC. And apparently, he didn’t entirely hate what he saw.

Shortly after 5 PM — while MTP: Daily was airing on MSNBC — Trump shouted out the chyron which appeared on screen during a discussion about Michael Cohen.

“Breaking News @MSNBC,” Trump wrote. “‘Cohen’s lawyer contradicts Cohen’s testimony about never seeking a Presidential Pardon.'”

It’s unclear if Trump stuck around to watch the full MTP: Daily discussion on the topic. But if he did, chances are he would’ve similarly appreciated it. Panelist Michael Steel — a former adviser to Jeb Bush and John Boehner — called Cohen a “mendacious mook.”

And host Chuck Todd said, “I’ve always thought it was a real risk for Democrats from the House to make Michael Cohen, this very, extraordinarily flawed witness, as essentially the first witness against the president….He’s been the first star attraction. We all knew going in this was a problem, and sure enough he couldn’t even get his mea culpa right.”

Todd added, “You are who we thought you were, Michael Cohen.”
