So he sort of simultaneously making the Stephanie Clifford story, the stormy Daniels story, mainstream news, and also just sort of more broadly becoming this kind of anti-trump figure on cable news. Exactly. And I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, I know that handsome lawyer. I've seen a lot of Michael avenue on TV every time I turn on the TV. There is extra. The of Noni was on cable so much that news would break while he was on a said, and he would actually just react to it, live on air. Do you want to hear what the president said? All right. Here we go. Take a listen. I think there was one morning where President Trump went on FOX and said something about the case. How much of your legal work was handled by Michael Kohn? Well, as a percentage of my overall legal work at tiny, tiny, little fraction, but my goal would represent me and represent me on some things. He represents me like with this crazy stormy Daniels deal, he represented me and, and then thank you. So the president just said that Michael Cohen represented him on the stormy Daniels case and another gift. From the heavens. In this case they keep coming. I don't know. I don't know how I've how I fallen into such good luck in this case, but I'm going to take it. Joe. Scarborough turns damn, I remember this vividly and says the impact of that. Huge, hugely damaging admission by the president. Because according to what he said on Air Force One, if you weeks ago, he didn't know anything about the agreement. He didn't know anything about the payment. It was like, wow, you on TV a lot. And it's his far as I can tell unprecedented in terms of the sheer amount of interviews he gave in a relatively short period of time. Again, this is only a few months ago, right that he came onto the scene and he was giving upwards of one hundred interviews easily and a period of weeks.

I was really interested in that world of cable news in the big personalities. You not watched of naughty pretty regularly. And so when after noon who's a Sunday, I think emailed them.
