I’m sure Michael Cohen regrets a lot of decisions he’s made in the past few years.

Donald Trump’s former lawyer was recently sentenced to three years for crimes including campaign finance violations as part of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

But one tweet in particular keeps coming back to haunt him.

Last year, Cohen was accused of secretly meeting Russian officials in Prague during the summer of 2016. He denied that accusation with a now-infamous tweet.

You can’t argue with conclusive evidence like that, can you?

But, on Thursday morning, news agency McClatchy published an investigative report which suggested the opposite.

Naturally, Twitter users were quick to mock Cohen's previous denial.

Seriously though, why hasn't he just deleted this tweet already? Does he like getting roasted?

By now, Cohen must be used to being the butt of jokes on Twitter - he was first mocked in April this year when reports claimed the Mueller investigation had evidence he did visit Prague in “August or early September” of 2016.

This time, he wasn’t going to back down without a fight.

Instead, he decided to double down on his defence with a cryptic tweet.

In fact, he went even further than before.

Not only has Cohen never been to Prague, apparently he’s never been to the Czech Republic as well.

But wait? Didn’t he tell a journalist he went to Prague 14 years ago?

And didn’t he also tell The Wall Street Journal he went to Prague in 2001?

Either Michael Cohen is very confused or he needs to get better at lying.

That’s a bad joke Isiah. But we’ll allow it for this.
