President Donald Trump’s long time lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen has been sentenced to three years in jail.

Cohen admitted lying to Congress, campaign finance violations and tax evasion, but blamed his charges on Trump. The disgraced attorney told the New York court that Trump had caused him to "follow a path of darkness rather than light". He told the court his "weakness was a blind loyalty to Donald Trump" and that he "felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds".

Regardless of motive, Cohen will be spending Christmas behind bars. Which is ironic because, as many people have pointed out, Cohen frequently taunted Hillary Clinton - Trump’s 2016 opponent - with insinuations that she should be in jail.

We all remember the chants of "lock her up!" throughout the 2016 campaign. Cohen even once offered his legal services to ensure that Clinton was sent to jail, despite numerous investigations absolving her of legal wrongdoing.

Naturally, given the way things have worked out, Twitter users have wasted no time in mocking Cohen for his past stance.

Life comes at you fast.
