Comedian Tom Arnold said that President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is underplaying their relationship during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Friday.
After meeting apparently with Cohen in Manhattan to discuss being on Vice Media’s new television show “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes,” Arnold posted a photo of them on social media.
Most recently, there was speculation Cohen might flip on President Trump after facing serious legal battles. Antony Michael Avenatti said the photo served as a warning to President Trump that Cohen may leak secret information.
After an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, Arnold said that he is spending the weekend with Cohen. He also claimed that Cohen discussed being on his show, and that they chatted about President Trump.
Cohen denied these claims on Twitter. “Appreciate Tom Arnold’s kind words about me as a great father, husband and friend. This was a chance, public encounter in the hotel lobby where he asked for a selfie. [We are] not spending the weekend together, [and] did not discuss being on his show, nor did we discuss @POTUS,” Cohen tweeted.
During his interview with Matthews, he said Cohen was just down playing their true relationship. “The real truth is I probably oversold it and he way undersold it. He’s way underselling our relationship,” Arnold said.
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.
