Denial, it isn’t just a river in Egypt.
Michael Cohen, executive vice president at the Trump Organization and a lawyer for Donald Trump, appeared on CNN Wednesday, clearly hoping to convince viewers that everything is just fine at the former reality TV star’s presidential campaign.
Anchor Brianna Keilar wasn’t having it. For 30 awkward seconds, she made Cohen squirm as he questioned whether Trump’s campaign has actually been crashing in the polls over the past few weeks.
Here’s the exchange (although you MUST watch the video below…the transcript doesn’t do it justice):
Brianna Keller: You say it’s not a shakeup, but you guys are down.
Michael Cohen: Says who?
BK: Polls. Most of them. All of them.
MC: Says who?
BK: Polls. I just told you. I answered your question.
MC: OK. Which polls?
BK: All of them.
Keilar wasn’t exaggerating. Trump hasn’t led a nationwide general election poll since July 24th. He’s currently down in some key battleground states ― and the undeniably disastrous trend has continued over the past few weeks, as Trump has ignited a series of controversies, beginning with his attacks on the Gold Star family of a Muslim American war hero.
