Laura Ingraham flat-out asks Eric Trump how Michael Cohen was even hired as “the boss” in the first place

Eric Trump joined Fox News host Laura Ingraham in attacking Michael Cohen, the former lawyer of his father, former President Donald Trump, after he testified in the so-called hush money trial in New York.

The younger Trump called the former fixer “dizzying” and the politically motivated criminal trial against his father, as Ingraham, for her part, tried to understand how the former president had even hired a “jughead” Cohen .

“What kind of boy was he?” the Fox News host asked on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday.

“I met him a couple of times and I don't mean to be uncharitable to anyone. I really don't. But I didn't find him impressive. And your father is an incredible judge of so many people and situations. How did he ever get hired?” Ingraham asked Trump.

“Like, I called him 'jughead' and that's kind of juvenile, I guess. But he looks like a goldhead to me… Personnel is really important. Was this guy the go-to guy? Why?” he wondered about the former attorney who previously pleaded guilty to lying to Congress.

“Well, that's the reason my father didn't want to take him to Washington, DC,” Trump replied.

“And by the way, he sat there for an hour today talking about how crazy he was, right? He was literally texting people, 'I'm going to be chief of staff.' I want to be chief of staff. He's lobbying for that.”

“How much of this is resentment?” Ingraham asked.

“It's a lot of resentment,” Trump replied.

He later explained that Cohen “was fine for a little while and then he totally fell apart.”

“The self-proclaimed fixer actually broke more things than he fixed,” he said, adding that everyone saw Cohen's “true colors” after a while.

Ingraham suggested that Cohen has an “Oedipus complex” and is trying to emulate Donald Trump.

The former president's son criticized the prosecution of his father as he faces 34 felony counts related to a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Transportation to Cohen was the ” Super Bowl moment” envisioned by prosecutors, Eric Trump told Ingraham.

“The New York attorney's office is sitting in court and they're sitting there, laughing and laughing, this is their All Star moment, this is their Super Bowl moment,” Trump said. “They're excited and laughing, they finally have a chance to get my dad.”

“Then I look at Cohen, and he's giddy. He's so happy to say that he's a personal attorney for Donald J. Trump and what an honor that was and how great he was and worked in that role even after leave the organization,” he added.

In her opening monologue, Ingraham had dismissed Cohen's recording of the former president that was played in court Monday.

“The big moment in court today had to be the playback of a taped conversation that Michael Cohen taped between Trump and himself in 2016 (yes, eight years ago), where they can be heard talking about how they would buy the rights to The Karen McDougal story. On the tape, Cohen can be heard explaining to the then-presidential candidate his plans to form an LLC through which he would finance the purchase of the rights to this woman's story.” to explain

“None of the hype amounted to anything. None of it proved anything,” Ingraham said.

“Ironically, Alvin Bragg hopes that Jughead will be his fixer, that Michael Cohen can help deliver a guilty verdict in a case that was a bombshell from day one. Now, only a radical, far-left legal mind would think that a convicted perjurer and a crazy porn star should be considered serious people, let alone help decide the next presidential election,” he added.
