I cannot believe I have to tell you this but it appears that I do: DO NOT DONATE TO MICHAEL COHEN'S GOFUNDME, PEOPLE. HE IS A SLEAZE AND A CON.
It's been less than 30 hours since Micahel Cohen pled guilty to tax evasion, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations, and his lawyer (or some genius tweenager posing as his lawyer) has already set up GoFundMe account. And it's raised over $112,000. You could buy like 100,000 fidget spinners for that kind of cash, but, instead, people are dumping their dollars in this idiot's lap.
The page reads:
On July 2, 2018, Michael Cohen declared his independence from Donald Trump and his commitment to tell the truth.
On August 21, Michael Cohen made the decision to take legal responsibility and to continue his commitment to tell the truth.
Michael decided to put his family and his country first. Now Michael needs your financial help — to pay his legal fees.
The Michael Cohen Truth Fund is a transparent trust account, with all donations going to help Michael Cohen and his family as he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about Donald Trump.
This fucking guy provided the hush money that ushered Trump into the White House and now he wants us fools to pay his legal bills?? And we're actually doing it?? I'm reminded of dear Jill Stein, who did everything she could to keep Hillary Clinton out of office and then raised money for a goddamn recount. Maybe in 2020 they can run together.
Michael Cohen is a grifter and he doesn't belong in our good graces just because he (finally, in court) told the truth. He belongs in prison, right beside his old friend Donald Trump.
