President Donald Trump’s personal fixer Michael Cohen recently retweeted a photo of himself with Tom Arnold — who’s investigating the existence of recordings showing Trump’s “most incriminating moments” for a new show.
Cohen, whose business deals are currently being probed by the feds, met with the comedian at the Loews Regency Hotel in Manhattan.

Arnold originally tweeted the photo of the two chumming it up with the caption, “I love New York.”
“We’ve been on the other side of the table and now we’re on the same side,” Arnold, who is Roseanne Barr’s ex-husband and an outspoken critic of the president, told NBC News Friday. “It’s on! I hope he [Trump] sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams.”
Arnold was in the city doing interviews for Vice’s show that is “dedicated to uncovering what’s really going on with the rumored recordings,” including the one in which Trump allegedly orders Russian prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed.
“I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together,’ and he’s so tired, he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, f*** Trump,’” Arnold said.
He wouldn’t say whether Cohen — who famously paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money over her alleged 2006 affair with Trump just before the presidential election — would turn over any tapes he may have of Trump.
Cohen didn’t respond to NBC’s requests about his retweet, which Arnold called “indiscreet” but said the lawyer has been betrayed by the president.
“Michael Cohen showed up and worked diligently above and beyond and sacrificed and Donald Trump is like ‘I don’t even know who he is.’ You think Michael doesn’t notice that?” Arnold said.
Vice’s “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes with Tom Arnold” is set to air later this year.
“The host will draw on his high-profile network of celebrity friends, entertainment executives, and crew members he’s met over more than 35 years in showbiz to dig for evidence on Trump’s most incriminating moments — and, being a comedian and all, he’ll have a little fun along the way,” Vice said in hyping the show. “He’ll be backed up by a handful of experienced journalists, and — aside from trying to uncover the tapes themselves — he’ll look into the companies and tycoons who have allegedly fought to keep the damning recordings a secret.”
Cohen recently hired a former high-ranking federal prosecutor to handle his case in preparation for cooperating with the feds, according to reports this week.
