MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace and her Tuesday political panel cracked up at the irony of Michael Cohen's downfall while President Donald Trump has called himself a "law and order president."
"This is huge news. And it's not a good day for the Trump administration when you put this combined with [Michael] Flynn delaying his sentencing, and then [Paul] Manafort," said former DNC advisor Doug Thornell.
He noted that these are all very senior people in Trump's orbit.
"It calls into question the best and the brightest claim that this president made that he was going to be bringing in the best and the brightest to the administration. He also ran as a law and order president," he continued.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged to bring in "all the best people" and "drain the swamp." The antithesis has been the case.
"He's bringing in criminals and corrupt agency heads into these positions," Thornell also said.
"'Lock her up' has a new meaning," laughed Wallace. "They're locking up the entire former leadership of the Trump orbit from the campaign years."
