On Friday, Tom Arnold sat down with CNN’s Poppy Harlow to discuss his claims that he plans to team up with former President Donald Trump personal lawyer to “take down” the president.
It all started with this mysterious tweet sent on Wednesday showing Arnold with Cohen which the former Trump lawyer retweeted.
He then told ABC News this, referring to Cohen: “This dude has all the tapes — this dude has everything. I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together,’ and he’s so tired he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, f— Trump.’”
Then, he tweeted out this: “Michael Cohen didn’t say Me & him were teaming up to take down Donald Trump! Michael has enough Trump on his plate. I’m the crazy person who said Me & Michael Cohen were teaming up to take down Trump of course. I meant it. Michael doesn’t get paid by Vice.”
Hoping to get the bottom of the matter once and for all, Harlow tried to nail Arnold down on his claims Friday night.
Arnold was not willing to oblige and instead responded to question after question with non-answers — even at one point insinuating that the “pee tape” of Trump might just be real.
Finally, after his barrage of mindboggling obfuscations in response to Harlows direct questions, Arnold said — in response to a question if Cohen planned on cooperating with authorities — that he was not actually “f-ing around.”
“This is too important to me to f around and you know the word I’m talking about,” Arnold said suddenly being serious after repeatedly bonkers answers. “And we’re having fun with these Trump tapes, but this is serious to me and I’m not f-ing around.”
Yet, when asked directly again if Cohen said he was “cooperating with authorities should charges be brought?” the talkative former Roseanne Barr spouse got very quiet and sat for a painfully long silence on live television.
Then after breaking his silence, he told Harlow he would not let Harlow know about what he learned when he spent the weekend with Cohen.
At that point, Harlow brought the trainwreck interview to an end.
