Play of the Day: Michael Cohen's Office Was Raided and the President is Not Happy
Donald Trump's personal lawyer is in hot water.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt's scandals have been in the news lately, from his spending of taxpayer money on security for travel to his spending on office amenities like a $43,000 soundproof booth because of a fear of eavesdropping. The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked about the news, asking if Pruitt has ever heard of whispering.
On Monday, federal law enforcement officers raided the home, hotel room and office of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime attorney. Late night hosts joked about the news, with Conan O'Brien joking that Cohen tried to give the agents $130,000 to keep quiet and Late Night's Seth Meyers joking that incriminating evidence linked to the Stormy Daniels affair would be in a file cabinet marked "Payments to Porn Stars." Trump spoke about the raid on Monday afternoon, calling it a "witch hunt," saying the agents “broke in to” Cohen's office (despite having a search warrant signed by a judge) and even bringing up something about the "acid washed" emails of former rival Hillary Clinton. Jimmy Kimmel joked about the acid wash concept, saying that someone needs to get Trump "a pair of light blue jeans already."
