In what may perfectly wrap up a day in which Donald Trump’s spokespeople spectacularly flamed out while defending a campaign that appears to be in a death-spiral, Trump’s own attorney may have set the new bar for haplessness during a interview Wednesday afternoon.
Trump advocates flooded the airwaves on Wednesday attempting to put a happy face on personnel changes after it was reported that Breitbart Chairman Steve Bannon was taking over as CEO for the crumbling campaign
Appearing on CNN, Trump attorney Michael Cohen was asked about the shake-up, only to deny things look grim for the campaign.
“You say it’s not a shake-up, but you guys are down,” Cohen was asked by host Brianna Keilar. “And it makes sense that –”
“Says who?” Cohen abruptly retorted before repeating it again.
“Polls. Most of them. All of them?” a clearly flabbergasted Keilar suggested.
After pausing for an uncomfortable few seconds, Cohen once again asked, “Says who?’
“Polls. I just told you. I answered your question,” she stated.
“Which polls?,” Cohen shot back.
“All of the,” Keilar said with finality, to which Cohen conceded by saying, “Okay.”
