Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohenhad his office raided by the feds today in a case related to his paying $130k to the porn star out of his own pocket to keep her from repeating claims that she had an affair with Donald Trump about a decade ago – an affair Trump has denied.
Trump never had addressed the payment publicly – until last Friday while waiting to use the loo on Air Force One.
Asked why Cohen made the payment, Trump told reporters on the plane:”You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney.”
Asked if he knows where Cohen got the money, Trump similarly insisted he did not know.
“He knows nothing!” Colbert marveled. “Trump trusts his lawyer so much he lets him do stuff he doesn’t know about in his name, for reasons he does not understand!”
