President Trump's lawyer and spokesman Michael Cohen has found himself engaged in a social media fight after proudly posting a picture of his daughter dressed in lingerie.

"My father, who has always been supportive of my endeavors, was merely expressing his pride," Samantha said. "There is nothing inappropriate in the picture and those who seek to make it something it is not are merely Trump haters who are using this as an opportunity to stir up drama.

Cohen asked one woman on Twitter if she was "jealous" after she described the photo of his daughter as "spank-bank material."

Some Twitter users came to Cohen's defense. One woman, who said she was a mother of two Ivy league daughters, said the picture is "no big deal."

The comments to Cohen's account are in stark contrast to those on Samantha's Instragram account, where the photo was originally posted. There, the image received high marks from friends, calling it "very beautiful" and "gorgeous elegance."

Cohen is the president's personal attorney. Previously he was executive vice-president of the Trump Organization and special counsel to Trump.
