Trump surrogate and general counsel Michael Cohen made an appearance on CNN's Situation Room today to discuss recent changes to the Trump campaign. In classic Trump fashion, general counsel and all-around nasty human Michael Cohen was behaving like a sexist jerk toward Blitzer's stand-in, Brianna Keilar.

Keilar started off the conversation by acknowledging that Cohen isn't calling this a shakeup, but they are down, and the conversation went into la-la land fast.

"Says who?," Cohen retorted.

Keilar shot back, "The polls. Most of them. All of them?"

And then there was a long, long pause, after which the gaslighting* was so painfully evident it hurt.

Watch for yourself above.

*Gaslighting, defined: To manipulate events and situations in order to make a person believe that he or she is crazy.
