Donald Trump’s children aren’t the only ones who’ll miss the opportunity to vote for the Republican frontrunner on Tuesday: Michael Cohen, his adviser and special counsel, can’t vote either—and not because he forgot to register, but because he’s registered as a Democrat.
The revelation came as Cohen was knocking Reince Priebus and the Republican National Committee for trying to undermine Trump. “Well, I think Reince Priebus has an obligation not just to the RNC but really to the American people,” Cohen said. “He’s supposed to keep the Republican Party unified. That’s what his job really is.”
“And he’s not doing that, and he’s doing a terrible job at it. Do I personally, as a voter, as a supporter of Mr. Trump, believe that the process is rigged? I do. I think that the...establishment does not want Mr. Trump to be the nominee.”
“Me, personally, I’m actually a registered Democrat. So I don’t really care about Reince Priebus,” he said. Come again?
“I’d like to be one of his children. I’d like to be one of them, but no, I’m not voting in the primary. I’m a registered Democrat,” Cohen said. “Don’t worry about Mr. Trump. He’s around 50-plus percent in New York. This is his hometown.”
