“I’m spending the weekend hanging out with Michael Cohen. And there’s a lot going on.”
Like many other Hollywood has-beens, Tom Arnold is trying to revive his career by appealing to the anti-Trump crowd. He recently made some wild claims about former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on CNN, but the segment made him look mentally ill.
P.J. Gladnick of NewsBusters sets the scene:
Tom Arnold has Epic Meltdown During CNN Interview with Poppy Harlow
Comedian Tom Arnold’s funniest performance might have happened on the evening of June 22. He didn’t even intend to be funny but his epic meltdown during his interview about the supposed Trump tapes with Poppy Harlow who was substituting for Erin Burnett is destined to be viewed by millions as comedy relief. Besides the hilarious notion that he and former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen are buddies despite only a chance meeting for a quick selfie photo, Arnold experienced two embarrassingly long brain freezes during the interview.
Combined with his constant fidgeting, nervous tics, and the inability to answer simple questions, the two major brain freezes are just the icing on the cake of his unintentional comedy classic.
This has to be seen to be believed:
This is an apt observation:
WATCH: It looks like Tom Arnold needs rehab more than a guest spot on CNN…

Cohen has already refuted Arnold’s claims:
Appreciate @TomArnold kind words about me as a great father, husband and friend. This was a chance, public encounter in the hotel lobby where he asked for a selfie. Not spending the weekend together, did not discuss being on his show nor did we discuss @POTUS. #done #ridiculous

MSNBC saw this interview and thought: We need to book this guy right away!
Matt Wilstein writes at the Daily Beast:
Tom Arnold in Bonkers MSNBC Interview: Michael Cohen Knows Trump ‘Does Not Care About Him’
On Thursday evening, actor Tom Arnold tweeted a photo of himself with longtime Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen and the message, “I love New York.” By Friday morning, he was claiming that he and Cohen would be “taking Trump down together,” adding: “This dude has all the tapes.”
Those tapes—allegedly an outtake reel of the president using the “n-word” during his Celebrity Apprentice days, among other things—are at the center of an upcoming Viceland special Arnold is hosting, called The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.
You can see the video in Byron York’s tweet below:

If that’s not enough crazy for you, you’re in luck. Arnold is also saying he wants to target the children of Trump and others. Caleb Tolin reports at MRCTV:
Actor Tom Arnold Vows To Harass Barron Trump at School Over Trump’s Border Policy
Actor Tom Arnold, Roseanne’s ex-husband, tweeted that he is going to harass the Trumps in several different locations to protest the President’s recent immigration policies.
In a tweet, Arnold says he plans to show up at Barron Trump’s school because he knows Melania will be there to drop him off. He wants to harass the First Lady and her son because that is definitely how we change policy, right?
Way past sad & all in for these kids with @JuddApatow @FoxNews already hates me. On a plane to NY. Next is protesting Baron’s private school as well as James & Lachlan Murdoch’s kids. This is what I can do to end the abuse of these children. We’re going to make you uncomfortable https://t.co/ESAIWC49la

Dude, we can protest at The White House too. Also Melania takes him to school. We want to have a word with her. If we see babies tomorrow we’re going to Kushners kids school. Don Jr’s kids are already working at Hooters so we’ll protest there for lunch.
