There was a moment of amazing and incredibly awkward television on CNN Wednesday afternoon, when Brianna Keilar interviewed famously pugnacious Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen. Just watch the beginning of this segment:
KEILAR: You say it’s not a shake-up, but you guys are down—
COHEN: Says who? Says who?
KEILAR: Polls. Most of them. [confused] All of them?
COHEN: Says who?
KEILAR: [as if speaking to a small child] Polls. I just told you. I answered your question!
COHEN: Okay. Which polls?
KEILAR: All of them.
COHEN: Okay. And your question is?
I have literally watched this exchange about half a dozen times for more and it never stops being entertaining.
The arrogant look on his face as he responds with "Says who?" followed by the crestfallen look as he hears "All of them" is priceless.
I swear there must be no worse job to have in America right now than the job as a Trump spokesperson.
The only comparison I can think of is being a member of the orchestra that continued playing "Nearer My God to Thee" as the Titanic sank into the freezing North Atlantic Ocean.
