Trump Biographer on MSNBC: The President ‘Knows He’s Bleeped’

Tim O’Brien, an editor at Bloomberg and author of a biography of Donald Trump, said he thinks the president knows that “he’s bleeped” Wednesday.

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace set up O’Brien, during a conversation about Michael Cohen‘s sentencing to three years in prison for various crimes, some of which implicate Trump.

“Does it look to you like Donald Trump knows that he’s bleeped?” Wallace asked.

“I think it definitely looks like he knows he’s bleeped,” O’Brien replied. “And he’s cornered. And he’s spent a year and a half pointing at the Mueller investigation, on a routine basis, nonstop as being a witch hunt. And any time he starts tweeting at the investigators, it’s usually when there’s a big shoe about to drop.”

O’Brien pointed out that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg — who has worked for the Trump family since the 1970s — has an immunity deal with the Southern District of New York. O’Brien predicted the sprawling investigation will continue until after Trump leaves office, and will “get to his children.”

“People are going to start flipping, I think, that Trump never thought would flip before,” he added.
