Fox News’ John Roberts: Trump Was ‘All Over the Place’ Talking About Cohen, But on Sentencing Day, ‘Crickets’


Fox News chief White House Correspondent John Roberts made a point tonight of noting the odd silence from President Donald Trump (so far) on the sentencing of his former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Cohen, who said today he helped cover up Trump’s “dirty deeds,” was sentenced to three years in prison.

Trump publicly weighed in on the case, tweeting in the past week that Cohen deserves a “full and complete sentence”:

On Special Report tonight, Bret Baier noted how people are “watching Twitter for reaction,” and Roberts said, “So far nothing today.”

“Ahead of the Cohen sentencing,” he continued, “President Trump was all over the place urging Judge Pauley to throw the book at him. But on the day that he learned of his fate, from the White House, crickets.”

Roberts’ report on the day’s events in Washington noted that Trump didn’t mention Cohen at all during his only public event and “even on Twitter he was oddly silent.”

We should, of course, note the day is not over yet, and there’s certainly a chance Trump ends up weighing in eventually.
