Top Trump Staffer Can’t Vote For Him Because He’s a Registered Democrat

Michael CohenTop Donald Trump surrogate and attorney Michael Cohen revealed on CNN Thursday that he couldn’t even vote for his boss in New York’s Republican primary because he was a registered Democrat.

CNN’s John Berman began by asking Cohen whether he thought RNC chair Reince Priebus should stay or go if Trump won the nomination. “That’s Mr. Trump and the campaign’s decision,” Cohen responded. But when Berman continued to press him, Cohen revealed he was actually a registered Democrat.

Berman was clearly shocked to hear that. “You can’t vote? Can you vote?”

“Not in the primary,” Cohen said.

“So his kids can’t vote and you can’t vote in the primary tomorrow?” he asked again.

“I’d like to be one of his children,” Cohen said, a totally normal and not weird thing to say. “But no, I’m not voting in the primary. I’m a registered Democrat.”

“Man, he’s losing votes from his family and the people who work for him,” Berman joked.
