Twitter erupted late Tuesday night after CNN began broadcasting the tape that Michael Cohen recorded of his former client, President Donald Trump, in which they discussed a payment to buy the story of a Playboy model who allegedly had an affair with Trump.
Former Playbody model Karen McDougal alleged she had an extramarital affair with Trump about a decade ago.
"I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David," Cohen told Trump ahead of the 2016 presidential election, likely a reference to American Media CEO and chairman David Pecker.
McDougal was silenced by Pecker, who bought her story for National Enquirer and then reportedly spiked it.
Trump interrupts Cohen, asking, "What financing?"
Cohen tells Trump, "We'll have to pay," and then Trump is heard saying "pay with cash."
The reaction in Twitter was swift and massive:
