Over a year after turning on President Donald Trump by cooperating with the Mueller investigation and testifying before the House Oversight Committee, Trump's former attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen is again making the case against a second Trump term.
Cohen, who is currently serving the rest of his three year prison sentence at home due to the pandemic, will soon release his tell-all memoir, Disloyal, which tells of his decade as one of Donald Trump's closest confidants.
While the book won't be out until October, Cohen is already featured in a new anti-Trump ad from political action committee American Bridge 21st Century.
The people who know Donald Trump best are sounding the alarm: our country cannot survive four more years of a Trump presidency.

In the ad, Cohen translates what Trump really means when using his famous superlatives and spurious claims:
"I'm here to tell you he can't be trusted and you shouldn't believe a word he utters. So when you watch the President this week, remember this: If he says something is 'huge,' it's probably small. If he says something will work, it probably won't. And if he says he cares about you and your family, he certainly does not.
"He's going to tell you that if you reelect him, the economy will bounce back, that only he can get us out of this economic crisis...Maybe, for those like him. But if you think he cares about working class Americans, you're dead wrong. The President is gonna talk to you about law and order. That's laughable. Virtually everyone who worked for his campaign has been convicted of a crime or is under indictment, myself included."
People were stunned by the brutal ad.
This is better than godfather part 2.

Unprecedented how many former Trump associates are forcefully repudiating the president during the RNC this week— https://t.co/kwrOr6pFnq

“Virtually everyone who worked for his campaign has been convicted of a crime or is under indictment. Myself included."
Hell of an anti-Trump ad featuring Michael Cohen, his longtime right hand.

Some commended Cohen for speaking out.
Well, that works. I don't like you, Michael, your actions for Mr. Trump are criminal. But, I am listening to you. Thanks for stepping up with some hard truth.

Thank you @MichaelCohen212 because at least you don't try to dismiss your own complicity you acknowledge it, bc to atone for something you've done wrong, first one needs to own up to it!
Many on both sides could learn from your example!
Keep speaking your truth!

Cohen ends the video with a plea: "You don't have to like me, but please listen to me."
