[WATCH] ‘Like An Actual Wire-Tap of John Gotti!’ Michael Cohen Breaks Down Trump’s Mob-Style Threats Against Mike Pence
There are a select few who can hear Donald Trump speaks and immediately understand the subtext of what he’s saying. Trump isn’t a master of much, but he knows how to gaslight his base and use a whole lot of projection language and repetition to drive his lies into the ground until they become their version of the truth. However, he also says a lot of things without saying them directly, something his niece, Mary Trump, knows very well. And so does his former fixer, Michael Cohen.
Cohen certainly has a unique perspective, and has become a sort of “Trump Whisperer” for the masses, translating from Trump to English. His various warnings about Trump have all come true to a certain degree, and so when Cohen says that Trump was basically calling for a hit on Mike Pence on January 6th if he didn’t go along with the plot to overthrow the government.
I’d like to think I get all of Trump’s not-thinly-veiled threats, and I’ve often referred to him as an overgrown child or “King Baby.” When the January 6th Committee Hearings included that Trump told Pence, “I don’t want to be your friend anymore,” many people jumped on that and called him out for behaving like a petulant child, yours truly included.

“I don’t want to be your friend anymore if you don’t do this,” Trump – a full grown man – told Mike Pence – another full grown man – while trying to get him to steal a free and fair election.

Aguilar is now asking Jacob about testimony about Trump telling Pence: “No, no, no. You can do this. I don’t want to be your friend anymore, Mike, if you don’t do this…”
GOOD LORD THE PRESIDENT THREATENED TO TAKE HIS BALL AND LEAVE.

But Cohen says that we’re taking it the wrong way. Trump didn’t mean it in the kindergarten playground friends way. He meant in the “dese friends of ours” Goodfellas Sopranos way.

That’s a forehead slap for sure. Of COURSE he’s emulating a Mob boss, it’s all he’s ever truly wanted to be. I’ve pointed that out before, too, going as far as anointing Cohen as “Mikey the C” during the time he was still employed by Trump. I’m glad he’s not stuck on the Dark Side anymore.
In this amazing video, Michael Cohen makes the brilliant case using actual mafia wiretaps to show that Trump saying Pence is not my “friend” was actually a death threat using the same language as mafia hits. Cohen knows Trump and DECODES Trump here: https://t.co/9AXDCtSNos pic.twitter.com/DgIbn5Buau
