Viewers of Fox News’ Fox and Friends got a real treat this morning when President Trump called in for an exclusive interview.

Trump rambled on for roughly 30 minutes, making several noteworthy remarks about his 2013 trip to Moscow, his controversial relationship with rapper Kanye West, and his feelings about the Justice Department.

But the internet latched on to the president’s shocking confession concerning his former attorney Michael Cohen and the former adult-film actress Stormy Daniels. After Cohen confessed to paying Daniels $130,000 in hush money during the presidential election, Trump denied having any knowledge of the exchange. During the interview, however, he changed his tune.

“Michael would represent me, and represent me on some things,” Trump told the morning show. “He represents me, like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me. And you know, from what I see, he did absolutely nothing wrong.”

The internet went crazy with Trump’s admission, seemingly confessing he did know about the payment, for which Cohen is currently under investigation. Even Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, couldn’t believe the development; he tweeted a thank-you to the Fox and Friends.

The reactions that followed were a mix of shock and mockery.

The White House has not issued a statement on Trump’s long-winded interview.
