Donald Trump Jr. has been watching his father’s longtime personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen’s testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee Wednesday and he should be worried. After all, the checks which were given to Cohen to reimburse him for hush money payments to Stormy Daniels are signed by Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg. Cohen came with the receipts so Junior is panic-tweeting. The Trumps are good at projection but in this instance, Junior is way too obvious as he accuses Cohen of seeking fame and wanting “his own TV show.”
It’s almost as if you can switch the name Donald Trump, Mr. Apprentice himself, with Cohen’s name in his tweet.
And that’s what all this is about. Cohen just wants to be famous. He always wanted his own TV show and the limelight and when he couldn’t get it one way he had to try another.

Cohen is going to prison so it’s doubtful that he’s seeking fame. Back to reality: Here are images of the hush money payments with one of them drawn from Trump’s personal account.
Here are the checks Michael Cohen says he obtained from President Trump reimbursing him for the illegal hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels. One is drawn on Trump’s personal account, the other on his revocable trust (which owns Trump’s private businesses). pic.twitter.com/8eLDVtLUNi

Attorneys quickly weighed in on the severity of these checks,
.@DonaldJTrumpJr you signed one of the hush money reimbursement checks? You realize that implicates you in the criminal conspiracy, right?

Does this mean that Donald Trump Jr. authorized Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg to make the payment from the trust?
That would make him “Executive-2” in the charges against Cohen. Executive-2 may have significant federal and state criminal liability. https://t.co/uDhLVKwVJF

Rep. Ted Lieu weighed in, too.
Michael Cohen pled guilty to felony campaign finance violations. Don Jr. and Alan Weisselberg are part of the same conspiracy based on Cohen’s testimony and the check documents. They should both be investigated for whether they violated federal criminal laws.#CohenTestimony https://t.co/1DiSoKBfrS

It was Donald Trump who always sought fame and attention. He thrives on adoration from his base. That’s who Donald J. Trump is as a person. As for Junior, he’s trying to please his father, possibly over unrequited love. It’s curious as to why Don Jr. has failed to deny signing that check, but instead, he’s manically tweeting. Projection, it’s a Trump thing. The sh*t is hitting the fan and for some reason, Junior has chosen to plug the fan in while turning the switch on.
