Secret conversation 

If you’re a president and had alleged affair with ex-pornstar or Playboy models then do not wonder people want to know about a hush payment you’ve made for their silence.

Thus, Trump made headlines again after CNN exclusively aired the audio recording of the conversation of presidential candidate  with his attorney Michael Cohen in late 2016.

The topic of discussion was how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model’s story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years earlier.

The tape was part of several recordings seized during an FBI raid on Cohen as part of a criminal investigation into his business dealings. Its contents both increase the scrutiny on Trump’s involvement in the payments and signal a potential rift between the president and Cohen, his longtime “fixer”.

What does the recording say?

The tape offers a glimpse of a conversation between then-candidate Trump and Cohen in September of 2016 that touches upon purchasing the rights to McDougal’s story.

Trump asks his attorney about financing when Cohen explains he will have to establish a business to buy the rights to McDougal’s story.

“We’ll have to pay,” Cohen says, to which Trump appears to respond: “Pay with cash.”

Because the audio is muddled, it is unclear if Trump was advocating for his attorney to pay with cash or not pay; but Cohen is heard saying, “No, no.”

“The only people who use cash are drug dealers and mobsters,” Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, said on CNN. “Cash is not what you do. And it was Michael Cohen who said ‘no, no, no, no.'”

What does it change?

The White House claimed from the beginning that Trump neither engaged in extramarital affair with McDougal and nor was he aware of any payment made to her. The response echoed the White House’s denials of an alleged affair between Trump and adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who was paid $130,000 in hush money by Cohen.

The tape makes clear that Trump was at least made aware of efforts to purchase the rights to McDougal’s story. Trump’s mention of paying in cash, if proven to be his preferred method of addressing the issue, also appears to contradict statements made by Rudy Giuliani. The former New York City mayor, who joined Trump’s legal team earlier this year, claimed last week that the president sought to have the payment handled through a check so that it would be officially recorded.

Who is Karen McDougal?

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal described a sexual affair she said she had with  in 2006.

McDougal described the alleged affair as a consensual, loving relationship, and said she did not know Trump might have seen other women at the time besides his wife.

Recently, McDougal filed a lawsuit against The National Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc, who paid her $150,000 for her story with Trump. But the tabloid never published her story in order to protect Trump, Karen McDougal believes.

McDougal wishes to be released from an agreement in 2016, which restricts her from speaking on the matter.

‘Get me a Coke, please’

One particular moment of the full tape has spawned a thirsty meme wave on Twitter.

It seems like all the internet could focus on was a demand by Trump to an aide to “get me a Coke, please,” before discussing how they would buy the rights to McDougal’s story.
