Trump Was Terrified Of Getting Cream-Pied In The Face, Attorney Testifies

Donald Trump was terrified of getting cream pied in the face, his former attorney has claimed.

Michael Cohen was called up as a last minute witness in an ongoing lawsuit involving the actions of a member of the former president of the United States' security team several years ago.

An activist has taken Trump to court, claiming that they were beaten by his security detail during a protest outside Trump Tower in 2015.

And during a four-hour deposition, seen by the Daily Beast, Cohen said the 75-year-old was scared of being struck by a pie after seeing Bill Gates hit by one.

Cohen said: "For some reason that upset Mr. Trump terribly. We were all instructed that if somebody was to ever throw anything at him, that if that person didn’t end up in the hospital, we'd all be fired."

When asked by the outlet about the comments, Cohen explained: "It wasn’t just one time. It was an ongoing and regular thing. As he would go out to various different open venues, he would always remind Keith [Schiller] to keep his eyes open.

"He never would turn around and say, 'If anyone throws a rock or a bottle…' It’s always a pie. He always brought up that pie thing."

During his testimony, Cohen recalled the day of the protest, which was sparked by comments Trump made about Mexican migrants.

He said: "They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Cohen told the court that when he arrived at the tower, he told Trump about the protests that were going on downstairs, which was when he called his head of security, Keith Schiller.

According to Cohen, Trump asked: "Did you see that there’s a demonstration going on? Get rid of them."

To which Schiller allegedly replied: "OK, boss."

When Schiller returned, he was holding a ripped piece of cardboard, which he had taken from one of the protesters, Efrain Galicia.

Cohen claimed that Schiller then said: "I took the sign. He grabbed me, so I hit him across the side of the head."

To which Trump allegedly responded: "Good."

Trump had previously testified that he never ordered Schiller to use any kind of force against the protesters.

When asked, he said: "No, I didn’t."

The alteration between Schiller and Galicia was caught on camera, which was released by NY1.
