Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, painfully reminded by a CNN host on Wednesday that his boss is behind in the polls, came out of the remarkably awkward interview declaring victory!

He told Yahoo News that he felt he “controlled the interview.”

“I think I unraveled her,” he added.

The Wednesday afternoon interview, which quickly went viral, was a devastating comedown for Cohen, with extremely uncomfortable extended silences on his part as CNN’s Brianna Keilar reminded him that Trump is down in the polls.

While Keilar was asking Cohen a question about staffing changes at the campaign, she said, “You guys are down.”

“Says who?” Cohen jumped in to ask.

“Polls…most of them…all of them?” Keilar responded.

Cohen paused for a few seconds before asking again, “Says who?”
