Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer and fixer, took to the airwaves Monday to urge Americans not to vote for Trump.

Cohen’s announcement was featured in a campaign ad by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge 21st Century.

“For more than a decade, I was President Trump’s right-hand man, fixer, and confidant,” Cohen said. “I was complicit in helping conceal the real Donald Trump. I was part of creating an illusion.”

Cohen told viewers that Trump would “stand up and blatantly lie to you” at this week’s Republican National Convention. He added: “I’m here to tell you he can’t be trusted — and you shouldn’t believe a word he utters.”

Cohen continued skewering his former boss, saying: “When you watch the president this week, remember this: If he says something is huge, it’s probably small. If he says something will work, it probably won’t.”

He called Trump’s statements championing law and order “laughable,” arguing that “virtually everyone who worked for his campaign has been convicted of a crime or is under indictment — myself included.”

Cohen also urged viewers to remember that the president “thinks we are all gullible” and “a bunch of fools,” adding, “I was a part of it, and I fell for it.”

“You don’t have to like me,” he said, “but please, listen to me.”

Cohen on September 8 is set to release a new book, “Disloyal, A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump,” in which he is similarly critical of Trump.

“From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise — I was an active and eager participant,” Cohen wrote in the recently released foreword for his book.

Cohen did not provide evidence to back up his allegation about Trump and “golden showers in a sex club in Vegas.” He also has a history of lying and exaggerating the truth, and he’s pleaded guilty to several felony counts of making false statements to Congress, campaign-finance violations, tax fraud, and bank fraud.
