Trump Attacked By Who

Michael Cohen dismissed former President Trump’s concerns about missing his son’s high school graduation due to the ongoing New York criminal hush money trial as “comical” and “insulting.” Cohen, speaking on the MeidasTouch “Political Beatdown” podcast, pointed out that he had to miss significant life events while serving time in prison.

Trump has voiced worries about Judge Juan Merchan potentially preventing him from attending his son Barron’s graduation in May. Merchan has not yet made a final decision on the matter but denied Trump’s request to be in Washington for Supreme Court oral arguments next week, related to a claim of presidential immunity in other federal criminal cases.

Under New York state law, Trump must attend his trial unless the judge grants him special permission to be absent. Cohen, who indicated he was unaware of Trump attending his own children’s graduations, expressed no sympathy if Trump misses Barron’s graduation.

Cohen recalled missing important milestones like his 25th anniversary and his wife’s 50th birthday due to his actions for Trump’s benefit. He mentioned Melania likely not being upset about Trump’s absence, and he stated firmly that he won’t lose any sleep or shed a tear over Trump’s situation.

However, Cohen’s assertion about Trump missing his other children’s graduations has been challenged. Law360 reporter Frank Runyeon claimed on social media that Trump attended Eric Trump’s high school graduation in 2002, as they were classmates at The Hill School.

Cohen, Trump’s former fixer and personal lawyer, is expected to be a key witness in the trial, where Trump faces charges related to falsifying business records linked to payments made to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. These payments were to keep her quiet about an alleged affair, which Trump denies.
