Michael Cohen, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to Donald Trump, retweeted on Sunday evening an endorsement from @RepStevenSmith, Republican from Georgia’s 15th Congressional District, Tea Party Patriot, and parody account.

This comes after erstwhile surrogate Ben Carson said in a radio interview this week that Trump is aware that his own Twitter practices might be hindering his campaign: “He knows that it’s a problem. And the first part of solving the problem is recognizing that it exists.” Maybe Trump isn’t the only one with a problem.
In any event, it is only a matter of time until Cohen claims he knew it was a joke all along, and that he isn’t mad—in fact, he thinks it’s funny.
