Judge Merchan: The Perfect Gentleman and Poet of the Courtroom


During an appearance on MSNBC covering the network’s wrap-up of former President Donald Trump’s guilty verdicts, former Trump aide Michael Cohen, a key witness for the prosecution, commended New York Judge Juan Merchan, who oversaw the Trump trial.

“How do you think Donald Trump is feeling today in the wake of these verdicts?” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked.

“He took it all the way,” Cohen continued. “And Judge Juan Merchan, who is an absolute gentleman, to see him on that stand is to see poetry. It’s to see a masterful judge who was quick with decision-making. He was absolutely judicial perfection. And the jury had tremendous respect for him, as did I, which is what kept me off of all my social media, that and Danya [Perry], of course telling me to stay off the social media. It was really out of respect for Judge Merchan and the process that I did exactly that. And the jury respects Judge Merchan. And I believe a lot of the antics that went on in the courtroom, whether it was by Blanche or by Donald himself with the eye closing, the leaning back, the total disregard for the jury, I don’t think he engendered any positive feelings by anyone.”
