Tom Arnold turned out the funniest performances of his career this week as the comedian took to the media to share details of meetings with President Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen.
Arnold eluded to various media outlets, including CNN and MSNBC, that he had a personal relationship with Cohen and his recent meeting included talks about secret tapes being held by Cohen that will prove to be damaging to the president.
The interviews took place after the former husband of Roseanne Barr tweeted a photo of his latest encounter with Cohen.

After minutes of stuttering and incoherent sentences on CNN’s Outfront, Poppy Harlow pressed him with, “Did Michael Cohen tell you he had something incriminating on President Trump?” Refusing to answer directly, Arnold replied, “How could he not have any?”
Arnold said his latest meeting with Cohen was a “come to Jesus thing” to see which side Cohen was on. He said he was going back to the Regency Hotel to spend the weekend with Cohen and further prep for Arnold’s upcoming Viceland TV series titled “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.”
The only problem is, Cohen says the two did not have a meeting, just a chance encounter where Arnold asked if he could take a selfie.
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

And just when you think things could not get any weirder, Harlow’s final question, which asked if Cohen had specifically told Arnold that he is cooperating with the Trump investigation, resulted in more than 20 seconds of on-air silence.
Watch that awkward moment now…
