Watch Tom Arnold Offer a Cryptic Warning on MSNBC About Michael Cohen 'Flipping' on Trump

Rumors about President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen cooperating with federal investigators have been swirling around for months now, but Tom Arnold — who is known to have recently spent time with Cohen — gave hints Friday on MSNBC that he may have already decided to turn against the president.


Arnold appeared with Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" to discuss his efforts to bring down the president. 

"Is he going to cooperate with — did he say anything that made you think he's going to cooperate with prosecutors?" Wallace asked, referring to Cohen. 

Arnold seemed hesitant to answer like he was holding something important back.

"He's going to do... here's what I know," Arnold said. "He's going to take care of his family, his country, us, the rest of us Jews. Donald Trump is not. He's done. He knows Donald Trump — Donald Trump does not care about him. He does not care about his family, and it's over. He also doesn't want me — he doesn't want to be harassed by Donald Trump because he is the president of the United States still, and he probably has a bunch of dudes. But Michael Cohen is going to take care of his family and his country first. That's all you need to know. Think about that."
