The bizarre downward spiral of Michael Cohen

Michael Cohen, the former attorney and “fixer” for President Trump before he won the 2016 election, has gone from being a man with all the right connections to a convicted felon whose solace can only come if he’s able to do damage to his former boss. That’s it. That’s all Michael Cohen has left in the tank to drive him on in life.

It would be a sad fall from grace, except the more we learn about him, the more we realize he wasn’t living a life of grace at all. Instead, he existed in the shadows doing hush-hush deals and having to fake the respect he felt he deserved.

The latest embarrassment comes in the form of a WSJ article that kills any remnant of his professional and personal reputations. On the professional side, he allegedly paid money to have an IT specialist boost pre-candidate Trump’s poll numbers on CNBC and Drudge Report polls.

On the personal front, he allegedly had the same IT guy create a Twitter account that portrayed Cohen as powerful, successful, and loved by women as a “sex symbol.”

Seriously.

Women for Cohen

The clowning of Michael Cohen on Twitter has been especially brutal.

Rock bottom is coming

The reason we’re calling this a downward spiral is because it’s ongoing and the worst is yet to come. When will he hit rock bottom? That comes next month when he testifies before Congress.

We can expect two things:

  1. He will lay out embarrassing and potentially damaging information about the President that will all be denied except for the parts that Cohen recorded.
  2. He will bring the maximum level of disgrace to his own reputation and future because at this point, he really doesn’t have either.

It’s going to be ugly. Every word will be analyzed. The news cycle will be dominated by his revelations as mainstream media goes for the President Trump’s jugular.

And it won’t help

The only thing Michael Cohen has left is revenge. He feels wronged by his former boss, so he’s out to destroy his Presidency. It may work, but I seriously doubt it. Lest we forget, President Trump survived GrabThemGate. He was clowned over John Barron. He’s the guy who invoked the National Inquirer as his source to defeat Ted Cruz, then somehow convinced his base he was the champion against fake news. Whatever Michael Cohen has to say, it’s unlikely to be enough to make a real difference in the 2020 election. It’s only going to drive Cohen’s own public persona so low, he’ll be even more of a punchline than he already is.
