We’ve done funniest tweet round-ups about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ribs, the terrible bagel emoji, Cynthia Nixon’s bagel order, Paul Ryan’s “Jewish” ancestry, and Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony, so it brings us great joy to add to this series a round-up of hilarious tweets about Michael Cohen’s testimony in Congress.
The Jewish attorney, who called his former boss (i.e. Trump) a con man and a racist, is finally testifying in front of Congress after pleading guilty to lying to them about the Russia investigation. And yes, Twitter is having a DAY. Let’s dive in:

4. Who likes their own tweets???
If the Republicans really wanted to discredit Michael Cohen, they’d point out that he likes his own tweets. pic.twitter.com/gXGKgfokE8

6. RELEASE THE SCORES.
Me: SAT scores are extremely poor indicators of future student success, have no relationship to intelligence, are overall useless and I think we should abolish the tests in the name of equity and access.
Also me: RELEASE HIS SAT SCORES

7. I think you’re on to something…
Guys, stay with me for a second here. But I think the GOP tactic here *might* be to impugn Michael Cohen's character.

GOP congressmen: This man lied for years! He is here telling us about those lies!

11. Seriously, what’s up with Jared Kushner’s voice?
I just realized that I've never heard Michael Cohen's voice but it's absolutely exactly how I imagined it. Unlike, say, Jared Kushner's

15. Not funny, just real.
Saying Trump can’t be racist because he hires black people is like saying he can’t be a misogynist because he marries women.

20. Happy early Thanksgiving!!
POTUS frequently said his son, Don Jr., "had the worst judgment of anyone in the world," Cohen says.
Yow. Thanksgiving should be fun.
