It appears to have been a false claim, but Cohen’s first public statement denying it was … less than definitive.
The implication, perhaps, was that he could open up his passport and show you there were no stamps from Czechia. But just tweeting a picture of the cover of your passport and saying you’ve never been somewhere is about as overwhelmingly convincing as sharing a photo of the International Space Station and saying “I live here.”
Naturally, Twitter ran with the conceit.
