BACK IN the forecast this week: Stormy weather, with a new front of hot air.

So show the cartoons now on our radar, after Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime special attorney, said it was he who paid out for Stormy, the Vegas-hopping porn star.

“In a private transaction in 2016, I used my own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford,” Cohen said Tuesday in a statement, as first reported by the New York Times. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.”

Was that supposed to help L’Affaire Stormy blow over as a news event?

Instead, as The Washington Post reported, Cohen’s words seem to have again attracted public eyes to the eye of this media storm.

Here’s how some cartoonists are depicting the latest breaking wave of Stormy Daniels headlines:
