Michael Avenatti went on MSNBC on Friday to discuss Tom Arnold’s relationship with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.
In an interview with Nicolle Wallace earlier on Friday, Arnold said that he may reveal tapes of the president’s past bad behavior. Arnold said his goal was to drive the president from office.

Avenatti discussed what this development means in his interview.
“It was first on your show that I predicted in early April eventually Michael Cohen would flip on the president and the president entrusted Mr. Cohen with secrets he should have never entrusted him with,” Avenatti said. “I made that prediction in early April. I’m going to hold to it. I want to caution people about jumping to conclusions about what Tom Arnold has or does not have. I think a lot of these cryptic communications people are assuming quite a lot.”
So why did Cohen pose for a photo with Arnold, who has been a staunch critic of the president?
“I think that perhaps Michael Cohen allowed that picture to be taken to send a message to the president that the president potentially is in a lot of trouble here,” Avenatti said. “From my understanding, Michael Cohen is very concerned about being put on an island and abandoned by this president and the White House as it relates to having some of his legal fees paid, etc. And I think that perhaps this is part of the messages… this is a flare gun shot in the air for Michael Cohen to, you know, a message to Mr. Trump or others that there may be things coming down the pike.”
American Airlines ordered passengers to stop social distancing — because they hadn’t paid for exit seats
On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that the flight crew on an American Airlines trip ordered two passengers to stop social distancing and move back to their seats.
The reason? The empty row they moved into cost slightly more.
"On a June 30 flight on American Airlines from Dallas to Newark, Joy Gonzalez, an aviation engineer based in Seattle, found herself seated at a window with two older passengers beside her in the middle and aisle seats," reported Elaine Glusac. "In order to gain more social distance, she and the aisle passenger both moved to seats behind them where two rows were empty. But before takeoff, a flight attendant ordered them back to their assigned seats, telling them they had not paid for those exit row seats, which are more expensive."
US artist’s holiday park sculpture fetches millions
A huge sculpture by American artist Alexander Calder sold at auction in Paris on Wednesday for over 4.9 million euros, auctioneers Artcurial said, after nearly six decades on display at a holiday park in southern France.
The influential sculptor is known primarily for his colorful and abstract mobiles, of which he made thousands over the course of his career.
But he also made "stabiles" -- the opposite of mobiles -- one of which remained concealed from the general public in La Colle-sur-Loup village, a few dozen kilometres from the ritzy city Cannes.
The black steel 3,5 meter (11 foot) structure was made by Calder in 1963.
Joe Shapiro’s wife disputes Mary Trump’s claim her husband took SATs for Trump
Mary Trump's upcoming tell-all book alleges that President Donald Trump's sister did his homework and friend and fellow University of Pennsylvania graduate, Joe Shapiro, took his SATs for him.
ABC News reported Wednesday that Pam Shriver, Shapiro's widow, said that he would never have done something like that.
"He always did the right thing, and that's why this hurts," said Shriver.
