Donald Trump’s longtime former personal attorney Michael Cohen appears to be sending a cryptic message to the former reality show star in the form of a retweet that contains a photograph. Cohen retweeted a photo of himself with comedian Tom Arnold, the latter of whom is working on a show with Vice that features him hunting for videos of Trump in order to expose him. Arnold and Cohen, an unlikely duo, appear to have teamed up.
Cohen’s meeting with Tom Arnold comes as the embattled attorney is under investigation by federal prosecutors over his business dealings, including a $130,000 hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Arnold spoke with NBC News on Friday and revealed that Cohen “has all the tapes.”
“We’ve been on the other side of the table and now we’re on the same side,” Arnold said.
It’s on! I hope he [Trump] sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams.”
Arnold said, “This dude has all the tapes — this dude has everything” but did not say whether Cohen was going to give him the tapes or not. But the show he’s working on for Vice is about videotapes.
“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.
Arnold said the photo he tweeted was “indiscreet” but said that Trump’s former attorney has been betrayed by the president* after being loyal to him for years. Cohen is learning that loyalty to Trump is never returned.
“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 added.
There’s no telling how long Arnold and Cohen have been teamed up. Arnold tweeted the following in February:
You see Sam Nunberg’s Mueller testimony? Wow. I can’t believe you Don Jr Ivanka & Jared are making loyal @MichaelCohen212 the fall guy blaming him 4 Felix Sater & “we got duped by one terrible lawyer of a thousand” Sad Cohen’s kids gonna spend 72 Sunday’s visiting dad at Fed Pen. https://t.co/EyBJVFYsVB

And then last month, he tweeted this photo of him meeting with Felix Sater.

Cohen is reportedly feeling isolated from Trump and it appears that he’s now placing his trust in Arnold, a staunch Trump critic. To be sure, Cohen knows where the bodies are buried and if recent reports are accurate, he’s ready to flip.
Meanwhile, Tom Arnold is all up in Trump’s business and pushing all the right buttons.
