CNN panel cracks up as Tapper reads Cohen post calling Trump ‘V Sch—inpants’

A CNN panel of analysts and anchors broke out into laughter Thursday as Jake Tapper read a social media post from Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s onetime attorney, using vulgar language to blast Trump.

“Okay … I apologize for this update ahead of time, but Todd Blanche, the Trump attorney, is specifically reading a post that Michael Cohen made on Twitter on April 22nd, in which he refers to Donald Trump as Von Schitzenpants,” Tapper said during CNN’s coverage of Trump’s hush money trial.

“That is just a factual record that I am bringing before you. This is in the court transcript, Von Schitzenpants.”

The panel gathered in CNN’s studio broke into giggles as Tapper continued.

“Blanche also said there are repeated attacks on Trump and his candidacy on Cohen’s podcast and TikTok account,” Tapper said. “Dana Bash, I know you want to weigh in on Von Schitzenpants.”

“I think he did it on behalf of all of us,” Bash joked back.

“I have been calling it Von Poops in Pants for weeks now, but now it’s a part of the official transcript,” Tapper replied.

Trump is on trial in New York on charges he falsified business records to conceal a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election.

Each of the major news networks has been providing daily coverage of the trial, which is expected to span weeks.
