Well they sure did a bang up job, didn’t they?

President Donald Trump directed his son Eric and former personal attorney Michael Cohen to coordinate a legal effort to keep porn star Stormy Daniels from publicly describing her alleged tryst with the real estate magnate turned politician, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
The Journal, citing people familiar with the events, said the president instructed Cohen in February to seek a restraining order that would prevent Daniels from talking to the media. Trump also told his then-lawyer to coordinate his efforts with Eric Trump, the president’s second-oldest son, according to the newspaper. Eric Trump then enlisted a Trump Organization lawyer to help with the paperwork, the report added.
Trump suggested in a phone call that he would cover the costs for the legal action, saying, “I’ll take care of everything,” the Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the conversation.
An outside lawyer involved in the legal efforts against Daniels had said that Eric Trump made the request to file arbitration documents against Daniels in late February, people familiar with the matter told the Journal. Eric Trump was also reportedly involved in drafting a response to news outlets asking about the arbitration in March.
What a weird task to give to your son.
“Hey boy, I want you to keep my secret about cheating on your stepmother, just like I cheated on your mother, a secret okay? Whatever you do don’t let this porn star tell the world about my weird tiny mushroom shaped penis. Can you do that?”
And remember when Trump claimed in April that hey had no idea who had paid off Stormy Daniels?
Yeah, that certainly aged well.
