Lawyer Michael Cohen's epic fallout with President Donald Trump was reportedly triggered by a meeting last June between actor Tom Arnold and the president's trusted fixer.

According to The New York Times, Arnold tweeted a selfie with Cohen and later claimed to NBC News that the pair were teaming up to take down the president.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani phoned Cohen's legal adviser, Robert Costello, because the president wanted to know what it was all about, the Times reported.

"Is he totally nuts???" Costello wrote in frustration to his law partner, the Times reported. "He is playing with the most powerful man on the planet."

When Cohen sent along Arnold's tweet clarifying the situation — "I'm the crazy person who said Me & Michael Cohen were teaming to take down Trump of course," Arnold posted — Costello sent it to Giuliani with the request: "Make sure your client knows this. He will sleep better," the Times reported.

Cohen tweeted at the time the meeting with Arnold was a "chance, public encounter in the hotel lobby where he asked for a selfie," and insisted they never talked about Trump.

Arnold tweeted Sunday about the Times account: "This was satisfying."
