Editor’s Note: Fox News reported that the website mentioned by Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, directed users to President Donald Trump’s campaign website. However, it now redirects visitors to a GoFundMe page for President Trump’s border wall.
Lanny Davis is not having a good day.
On top of having to convince people his client Michael Cohen is ‘committed’ to the truth, he was apparently also tasked with raising his own paycheck.
On Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Lanny preached Cohen’s love of everything true. “He’s committed to telling the truth.”
“We’ve actually set up a website with the name ‘truth’ in it, called michaelcohentruth.com, and he’s looking for help from people who want to give donations to help him uh… tell the truth.”
There’s only one problem. Typing michaelcohentruth.com in your browser takes you to a GoFundMe page for President Donald Trump’s border wall.
Better not cash that paycheck just yet, Lanny.
Where did it all go so wrong?
Lanny did the math. Fox has a huge number of viewers, so it would be a perfect place to promote the website. With possibly millions watching, what could go wrong?
Lanny gave a typical lawyer interview and was a courteous professional. Everybody wants to donate to those guys.
But despite doing everything right, our lovable lawyer failed to take a crucial step: visiting the website you’re planning to promote.
It’s a deceptively simple concept, one that 7 years at Yale never prepared him for.
Nobody noticed the website despite it being mentioned twice, and it was not corrected in the interview.
Before the questions get a little more aggressive and Lanny gets a little more frustrated, he was able to get one more confusing jab in.
“When Rudy Giuliani says ‘truth isn’t truth,’ you just heard Donald Trump reverse truth and make it into a falsehood.”
“It’s classic,” Lanny said, shaking his head with a chuckle. “Classic.”
You got that one right, Lanny.
