'No sh*t Sherlock': AT&T buried in ridicule after it admitted it shouldn't have forked over $600K to Trump 'fixer' Cohen

After the Washington Post revealed that telecom giant AT&T paid Donald Trump's longtime attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen $600,000 to advise on their legally-dubious merger with TimeWarner, the company admitted it had made a huge mistake — and Twitter's response was a collective "no sh*t."


"Our company has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons these last few days and our reputation has been damaged," CEO Randall L. Stephenson wrote in a memo to the company's employees. "There is no other way to say it — AT&T hiring Michael Cohen as a political consultant was a big mistake."

"I would love to hear someone from AT&T and Novartis explain why it was a mistake to hire Michael Cohen, because it seems like the only honest response is 'Because we got caught,'" Pod Save America host Jon Favreau tweeted, referencing the other company that made headlines this week for working with the president's personal lawyer who was recently raided by the FBI.

"They’ve changed their story more times than Rudy Giuliani!" activist Amy Siskind wrote.
