Donald Trump's lawyer has apparently decided that it's his turn to make the gaffes. In an interview with CNN Wednesday, notoriously combative Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen interrupted host Brianna Keilar when she said that the campaign was "down," Politico reports. "Says who?" he asked. "Polls. Most of them. All of them?" she replied. "Says who?" Cohen asked again. When she repeated it was polls, he responded, "OK, which polls?” and Keilar said: “All of them." USA Today reports that Twitter users were quick to mock Cohen and are now replying "Says who?" to all his tweets.

Cohen, in what Law Newz calls "typical lawyer fashion," also took issue with Trump's overhaul of campaign staff being called a "shake-up," insisting it was actually a "change-up." Cohen also raised eyebrows when he told Kielar that Trump knows about "the African-American problem in this country," the Independent reports. "What I meant to say is the problem that exists in the African-American community," he later said. (Michael Moore says he "knows for a fact" that Trump never really wanted to be president.)
