Trump Just Lost His Lawyer And Twitter Is Here With The Jokes

Representing the president of the United States used to be an honor and, for an attorney, a real career-building opportunity. Unfortunately for President Trump, he can’t seem to hang on to attorneys.

You may recall Trump’s reaction to a New York Times story a couple months ago reporting he was dissatisfied with his legal team and thinking about firing some of them to bring on Emmet Flood, who handled Bill Clinton’s impeachment:
