Kyle Griffin And Seth Abramson Team Up To Blast Trump’s Latest Hypocritical Twitter Tantrum

Donald Trump

Trump gets called out for his mind-numbing hypocrisy.

Twitter is Ground Zero for the Resistance with activists, entertainers, journalists, legal experts, politicians, and every day people like you and me pushing back against the Trump regime; and Kyle Griffin, the producer of MSNBC‘s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” and lawyer and university professor Seth Abramson are two of the best. In fact, they are both listed in our “12 Must-Follow Twitter Accounts.”



Enraged, Trump lashed out on Twitter this morning in the wake of last night’s release of a recording of a conversation with his long-time personal attorney Michael Cohen.

As The New York Times reported, “Michael Cohen’s audio clip unraveled Trump’s false statements,” and Trump clearly isn’t happy about it – as evidenced by his Twitter feed.

“What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad! Is this a first, never heard of it before? Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped – can this be so? Too bad!” he tweeted this morning.

Griffin quickly weighed in on the situation, tweeting: “In light of Trump’s complaints about Cohen, remember this from 2017: Trump has a long history of secretly recording calls, according to former associates.”

His tweet included a link to a May 2017 article by The Washington Post reporting on Trump’s well-known and long-standing history of secretly recording conversations.



As The Washington Post reported:

Throughout Donald Trump’s business career, some executives who came to work for him were taken aside by colleagues and warned to assume that their discussions with the boss were being recorded.

“There was never any sense with Donald of the phone being used for private conversation,” said John O’Donnell, who was president of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in the 1980s.

[…]

“Talking on the phone with Donald was a public experience,” said O’Donnell, author of a book about his former boss, “Trumped: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump.” “You never knew who else was listening.”

Former criminal investigator and criminal defense attorney, Seth Abramson, weighed in as well.

Responding directly to Trump’s tweet, Abramson took a different approach, reminding people of Trump’s campaign promise to surround himself with “the best and the brightest.”

“Someone chosen as a lawyer by a man who says he always chooses the ‘best people,” Abramson tweeted referring to Cohen.
