The former corporate lawyer had not been a major public face for the president until Tuesday, when he offered a passionate defense of Trump that might have even surprised his boss with its made-for-a-television audience salvos.
“Pat Cipollone is a high-quality human being. I was very impressed with Pat. He had great emotion yesterday,” Trump told reporters at a news conference in Davos. “Pat is a brilliant guy but I’ve never seen that emotion and that’s real emotion.”
Cipollone’s performance was party of a fiery defense for Trump on the first real day of the impeachment trial that played on some of his own talking points and included fervent attacks on House Democrats. It was enough to capture Trump’s attention while he was more than 4,000 miles away in Davos, Switzerland.
