Hollywood celebrities rejoiced and mocked the news of President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen being sentenced to prison Wednesday, celebrating and wondering when other members of the administration will be jailed.
“I hate to kick a man when he’s down, but in this case I’ll make an exception: fuck Michael Cohen,” actor-comedian Michael Ian Black said.

Actor Rob Delaney called for more to go to jail, saying he’s “Genuinely unmoved. Until Pence or Ivanka go to prison I don’t care.”

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, was sentenced to three years in federal prison Wednesday for a variety of crimes, including money laundering and lying to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Cohen was reportedly emotional during his appearance in court, saying of his relationship with Trump, “time and time again, I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds.”

Kathy Griffin also chimed in, mocking Cohen over a tweet he sent in 2015 where he told Hillary Clinton that she may soon be in jail for “defrauding American and perjury.”

“So I’m warning you, tread very fucking lightly because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fucking disgusting.”
Friendly reminder of his character from Michael Cohen himself, whom his attorney described in court today as ‘a very good man.’
