Michael Cohen is the Non-Fictional Version of Barry Zuckerkorn from AD

In the past, more than one commentator has noted the peculiar similarities between members of the Trump family and his successful presidential campaign to characters and the story arc of the cult comedy TV series “Arrested Development“. It now seems that the usual similarities between reality and that TV series have stepped up one notch within the last few days. In fact, one of the central plotlines of the 4th season was the Bluth family trying to resurrect their family fortunes by pushing for the construction of a wall between USA and Mexico which was sold to racist voters as a way to “keep those Mexicans out”.

Some of you might remember the character of Barry Zuckerkorn, played by Henry Winkler, who is the loyal but highly incompetent lawyer of the Bluth family. One of the running gags in that series was that Barry (with a few exceptions) somehow always managed to make problems worse than they were prior to his involvement. Enter Michael Cohen, Trump’s long-time personal attorney, who has managed to make the whole situation around making payouts to women who claimed to have affairs with Trump in the past, far more problematic than necessary. Most of you would agree that the overall similarities between the two are considerable.

and here is a YT clip of one of the very few times his character displays competence, on a very topical issue.

What do you think? Comments?

    Perhaps you have seen this CNN video of Michael Cohen set to the Sopranos theme music.

    The hilarious thing is this was shot when Michael Cohen was suppose to be in court. The judge was angry that Michael Cohen wasn’t there. And who is he meeting with instead? The guy in the blue suite is Rotem Rosen, the right-hand man of Lev Leviev. Lev Leviev is a Russian oligarch who is every close to Putin. Rotem Rosen is the CEO of the American branch of Lev Leviev’s hold company.

    So while Michael Cohen is suppose to be in court, he is instead smoking cigars with the right hand man of a Russian oligarch who is very tight with Putin.

    You just can’t make this stuff up.
