Michael Cohen was Donald Trump’s personal lawyer for many years. In the end, he paid for his loyalty to his former boss with a prison sentence. Kanye West is also connected to Donald Trump. The enigmatic rapper become Trump’s biggest celebrity endorser. West also attempted to run for president though that ended quite badly for him.
Now the odd couple is apparently working together. On Monday, Cohen told Alysin Camerota that he has become West’s fixer.
When asked about a picture of the two men eating lunch together, the lawyer answered, “One thing that I’ve done very well, virtually my entire life, was help resolve issues for people, we’ll call it being a fixer, right? This time, though, some of the issues that I’m talking about with Ye are nothing to do with porn stars or Playboy Playmates. A lot of it is business related –”

The CNN host countered then asked if Cohen was discussing political ambitions with West. The lawyer played coy. But when Cohen was asked about the strange full masks the rapper has been seen in, he responded:
“Because the second we sat down we were getting mobbed by individuals who wanted photographs with him…he’s exceptionally popular, more than even I expected. I knew people would go crazy for it but not to the level that they did.”
