Think what you like about Donald Trump but he’s run a fucking mind-blowing campaign.
In almost every interview, press-conference and debate he’s said the sort of things that would sink the career of 99 per cent of politicians across the globe – yet he’s prevailed and is now a presidential hopeful, reports Mother Jones.
However, according to numerous polls across the U.S, Trump’s support is down and at an all time low – but don’t tell his advisers.
Michael Cohen, one of Trump’s top political advisers, appeared on CNN last night to talk about how brilliant The Donald is.
But when news anchor, Brianna Keilar, asked Cohen what he thought about the polls which claimed old Trumpy was failing badly, he just could not handle it.

Here’s the exchange in full:
Brianna: You say it’s not a shakeup but you guys are down and it makes sense that…
Michael: Says who? Says who?
Brianna: Polls. Most of them. All of them?
(Awkward long and silent pause signifying the moment logic and solid proof collides with stupidity)
Michael: Says who?
Brianna: …Polls. I just told you. I answered your question.
Michael: OK. Which polls?
Brianna: All of them.
Yeah, that was as bizarre as you thought and it gets that little bit more eerie every time you watch it…
If you fancy giving the full interview a watch – and yes I thoroughly recommend it – then you can do so below.
What a time to be alive…
