20/20 Hindsight

39E625E9-865A-4370-B949-F6D0E93D065B“What would you say is your biggest regret?” David, the interviewer, asked.

“You know what’s strange?” Michael said. “There were so many opportunities to do the right thing, options that could have yielded a different outcome.”

“Can you elaborate?” David asked.

Michael’s eyes got watery. He took a deep breath, put his right hand on his chest over his heart, as if he were having a heart attack, and said, “Well, I shouldn’t have put all my eggs in one basket.”

“Well, Michael, you can’t blame yourself,” David said. “After all, even though he’s a conman, he is also a charismatic guy.”

“And yet here I am, having lost everything and spending years in federal prison, while the man I did all of these illegal deeds for is still out there, unpunished, doing his thing,” Michael Cohen said. “Using 20/20 hindsight, I rue the day I first met Donald Trump.”
