Michael Cohen’s Judgement Day
Michael Cohen was sentenced to 36 months in prison for multiple crimes including personal business and also crimes he said were committed at the President’s behest. Cohen will enter prison on March 6th 2019 and when he’s released, the odds are high that someone with the last name Trump might be starting their prison term.
"Recently the president tweeted a statement calling me weak and it was correct but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds"— andy lassner (@andylassner) December 12, 2018

It does seem unfair for Michael Cohen, the puppet, to spend time in jail while Donald Trump, the puppeteer, goes free. But Trump’s time will surely come.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) December 12, 2018

Yes, Michael Cohen was Trump's personal lawyer, but more recently he was Deputy Finance Chair of the Republican National Committee. The Deputy Finance Chair of the RNC was just sentenced to 3 years in prison for felonies committed during the 2016 presidential election campaign.— Matt McDermott (@mattmfm) December 12, 2018

Michael Cohen told the judge he’s been living in “personal and mental incarceration” because of Trump. That’s something he has in common with a solid majority of Americans.— Larry Sabato (@LarrySabato) December 12, 2018
Imagine if Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, and Donald Trump were all in the same prison. That would be the best season of The Apprentice ever.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) August 21, 2018
Three years for Michael Cohen seems unfair.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) December 12, 2018
I mean, the rest of us were sentenced to four years of Trump.
