The discussion of the 2020 election on Twitter descended into the sewer on Thursday after former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen released the forward to his forthcoming book.
“From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise—I was an active and eager participant,” Cohen wrote.
That resulted in the hashtags for “Urine Trouble Trump” and “Golden Showers Trump” trending nationwide.
Here’s some of what people were saying:
Somehow, we also managed to get #UrineTroubleTrump to the top of what's trending? 😂😂

WATCH: Melania Trump goes maskless as she participates in White House Christmas tree delivery
First Lady Melania Trump declined to wear a face mask as she was receiving this year's White House Christmas tree.
In White House video released on Monday, the first lady can be seen without a mask while accepting delivery of the tree. However, masks were worn by everyone else seen in the video.
The White House has been criticized for allowing COVID-19 to spread at events where attendees are not required to wear masks. At least two "super spreader" events have already taken place at the White House.
The First Lady's Office has said that Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations are expected to take place with smaller crowds.
The Republican Party has already burst at the seams in the wake of Trump’s defeat: conservative columnist
Almost three weeks after Election Day — with President-elect Joe Biden having won 306 electoral votes and defeating President Donald Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote — Trump has yet to concede and continues to claim, without evidence, that the election was stolen from him through widespread voter fraud. Some prominent Republicans, including Sen. Mitt Romney, are urging Trump to acknowledge Biden's victory, while others won't say a word against the president. And conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a November 23 column, argues that these divisions with the GOP need to become a litmus test — and that Republicans who refuse to accept the election results should become pariahs.
Some conservatives are becoming apoplectic as the lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continue unabated
The lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continued unabated over this past weekend. After his mysteriously oozing press conference last Thursday, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani kept an uncharacteristically low profile. Jenna Ellis, his partner in the "elite strike force," took to Twitter to insult longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz, accusing him of "micropenis syndrome," but beyond that she too stayed quiet. They left the public appearances to Sidney Powell, the member of the team best known as former national security adviser Michael Flynn's least competent attorney.
