President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, aka “what would happen if Entourage and The Sopranos did a crossover episode,” was “the real deal” in that “he’s not some elitist who went to the best college, he went to the opposite of that,” Klepper noted.

“It’s obviously not because Avenatti brings an endless stream of damaging information about the president, and Rudy sounds like a Halloween-store skeleton running out of batteries,” Klepper insisted.
