Creepy Michael Cohen Tweet With Racy Photo Of His Daughter Comes Back To Haunt Him

Trump's personal attorney slaps BuzzFeed with a lawsuit for publishing Trump-Russia dossier

Already knee-deep in controversy, this creepy tweet by Michael Cohen from last year is the last thing he needs resurfacing.

The Washington Post reported earlier this month that: “Michael Cohen, the longtime attorney of President Trump, is under federal investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations, according to three people with knowledge of the case.”

FBI agents on Monday [April 9, 2018] raided Cohen’s Manhattan office, home and hotel room as part of the investigation, seizing records about Cohen’s clients and personal finances. Among the records taken were those related to a 2016 payment Cohen made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had a sexual encounter with Trump, according to a fourth person familiar with the investigation.

Investigators took Cohen’s computer, phone and personal financial records, including tax returns, as part of the search of his office at Rockefeller Center, that person said.

In the midst of all this controversy, the last thing Cohen needs is more heat; and, as if he doesn’t seem creepy enough to most as Trump’s “go-to guy,” his “fixer,” this tweet from last May is making the rounds again.

“So proud of my Ivy League daughter…brains and beauty channeling her Edie Sedgwick,” he tweeted.

As Elle reported at the time: “Cohen’s daughter Samantha is 21 and attends the University of Pennsylvania, the alma mater of Trump and his daughter Ivanka.”

“Hundreds of Cohen’s followers responded to tell him that posting such a sexy photo of his own progeny was inappropriate and creepy—very Trumpian behavior—and in true Trump fashion, Cohen fought back,” Elle continued.

Possibly the most damning remark coming in the form of a response to a tweet from Twitter user Bonnie Bratnober criticizing the pattern of creepy behavior regarding women coming from the Trump administration.

Another twitter user followed up, noting that Cohen’s response of “Jealous?” was possibly “more creepy” than Cohen posting the photo of his daughter had been:

Providing some background, New York Magazine‘s women’s site, The Cut, reminded readers that:

Michael Cohen is a longtime Trump surrogate whose statements are sometimes too polarizing for even his bombastic boss to handle. During the campaign, Trump twice distanced himself from Cohen’s remarks — the first time when Cohen told the Daily Beast that legally, “you cannot [email protected] your spouse” (Cohen later apologized), and the second time when Cohen said the women accusing Trump of [email protected] assault “aren’t women he’d be attracted to.” (Trump made the same claim himself but later denied it.)

Shannon Coulter, co-founder of the website Grab Your Wallet which keeps a running list of companies supporting Trump and/or his family business to boycott, aptly pointed out to Cohen that: “Edie Sedgwick bucked social norms for women in the mid-1960’s. If you’d been her dad, you’d have been angry and terrified.”
