Trump Lawyer Interview Flies Off Rails With Attempted Paper Grab

Posted by

Joe Tacopina, a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, tried to grab a piece of paper from MSNBC’s Ari Melber during an interview Tuesday.

The moment came as the duo was discussing Trump’s claim not to know about hush money payments to adult actor Stormy Daniels following their alleged affair.

“That’s not a lie?” Melber asked Tacopina.

“Here’s why that’s not a lie,” the attorney began to explain.

Melber picked up a piece of paper containing Trump’s denial.

Tacopina tried to seize the document.

“Could you put the paper down, put the paper down, we don’t need that,” the lawyer told Melber.

Melber held firm and moved the paper away, later posting one word about the exchange on Twitter: “Interviews.”
