Bermudian’s Tweet About Cohen Goes Viral

August 26, 2018 | 1 Comment

A tweet by Bermudian journalist Clare O’Connor about her negative experience with Michael Cohen went viral, with some 70,000 reactions on the social media network.

After President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to multiple charges, Ms O’Connor, an accomplished journalist who works in the United States, tweeted, ”Just taking a beat to remember the day 3 yrs ago when Michael Cohen told me he’d ‘ruin my life and take everything I have’ because I wrote about Macy’s dumping his then-employer’s sweatshop suit brand. You reap what you sow, you absolute monster.”

The tweet attained over over 58,600 likes, over 10,000 retweets and some 500 comments, and in a subsequent tweet Ms O’Connor added a link to this story she wrote for Forbes back in 2015, explaining that “this was the story that resulted in a threatening M. Cohen phone call and multiple DJT tweets.”

After the story in 2015, President Trump — who was then a candidate for President — tweeted about it and as seen in the screenshots below, he mentioned Ms O’Connor in five tweets, using his standard style of criticizing the reporter and media outlet following a news story.

The Bermudian journalist is one of many reporters who the U.S. President has criticized, with President Trump frequently complaining about the media, and even labeling the press as the “enemy of the people” on multiple occasions.

Ms O’Connor’s tweet came on a dramatic day of developments in U.S. politics, as the New York Times reported, ”Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, made the extraordinary admission in court on Tuesday that Mr. Trump had directed him to arrange payments to two women during the 2016 campaign to keep them from speaking publicly about affairs they said they had with Mr. Trump.

“Mr. Cohen acknowledged the illegal payments while pleading guilty to breaking campaign finance laws and other charges, a litany of crimes that revealed both his shadowy involvement in Mr. Trump’s circle and his own corrupt business dealings.”

The lawyer’s guilty plea came within minutes of President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort being found guilty by a jury on eight counts, leading some to term it as “Donald Trump’s nightmare news day,” the “worst hour of Donald Trump’s presidency”, and a “catastrophic day for Trump.”
