Pity the Political Comedian …

hush money


Andy Borowitz writes,

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Millions of Americans on Wednesday demanded that Donald J. Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, issue them checks in the amount of $130,000 for not having sex with Trump.

After Cohen revealed that he had issued such a check to Stormy Daniels, a porn star who he claims never had intimate relations with his client, there was widespread outrage among other Americans who had also not had sex with Trump but had not been paid for not doing so.

It’s funny. I do not remember a time in my legal career when I paid $130,000 of my own money to hush up someone with a story to tell about a client.
