Michael Cohen’s new tell-all is out today. Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump is described as “The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His Former Attorney and Personal Advisor—The Man Who Helped Get Him Into the Oval Office.” Now that man is talking exclusively to NBC News about the president:
“I describe Mr. Trump as a cult leader, and I was in this cult. While I was in the cult, I was really refusing to acknowledge that the actions I was performing for my boss were morally wrong.”
“So one of the purposes of writing the book is really from one former cult member to the current ones. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: Open your eyes as I have. And I want you to appreciate that Donald Trump cares for no one or anything other than himself.”
Cohen also has a warning for the upcoming election.
“Trump will do anything, everything within which to win and I believe that includes manipulating the ballots. I believe he would even go so far as to start a war in order to prevent himself from being removed from office.”
Watch what else Cohen told NBC’s Lester Holt above.
Meanwhile, Trump is lashing out at Cohen today calling him “a convicted lier (sic).” Many point out the hypocrisy associated with Trump calling his former fixer a liar.
Does the president not remember the circumstances that led Michael Cohen to become a "convicted 'lier'"? pic.twitter.com/t5VjhQn3Lo
