A Woman Just Added ‘Arrested Development’ Quotes To Photos Of Michael Cohen

Author, feminist, and self-described "soulless ginger" Molly Jong-Fast caught the attention of the interwebs today when she humorously captioned photographs of President Trump's longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, with quotes from Arrested Development.

Cohen, who less than a week ago had his home, hotel room, and office raided by the FBI and who the Justice Department has admitted has been under criminal investigation for months, skipped his courtroom date on Friday, for the second time this week, in favor of lunch, sportscoats, and cigars with friends.

People were quick to appreciate the Arrested Development references:

Rolling Stone Magazine, in a recent article about Cohen's criminal ties, said:

Michael Cohen's bare-knuckled tactics earned him the nickname of 'Tom,' a reference to Tom Hagen, the consigliore to Mafia Don Vito Corleone in The Godfather.

Twitter users seemed more focused on their own speculative evidence of Cohen's potential mob ties.

It seems the Daily Mail had the scoop on Cohen's jacket:

The lawyer did not attend the hearing and was pictured returned from his lunch outing wearing a checkered blazer by the Italian menswear brand Isaia. A similar model made out of wool, linen and a silk blend retails for $3,225.

Regardless of your take on the situation or Cohen's coat, it seems everybody is here for it when it came to drawing comparisons between Cohen and the family Bluth…
