Social Media Fans Make Hilarious Memes Of Trump’s “Get Me A Coke, Please” Audio Recording With Michael Cohen
Last week, an audio recording was released of President Donald Trump discussing hush-money payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal — with whom Trump had an affair in 2006 and 2007 — with his personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
During the recording, as Cohen is explaining some of the logistics of the payout, Trump is suddenly heard yelling “Get me a Coke, please!” and the phrase has since spawned hundreds of jokes from people on social media who found the order to be out of place.
Many users were surprised that Trump — who is known for his brash and disrespectful behavior — even said the word “please,” while others simply decided to make memes and other jokes about the president’s desire for a soda. Trump is known for consuming unhealthy foods like hamburgers and KFC, so his preference for Coca-Cola is not particularly shocking. Trump has even tweeted about Coke multiple times, having once written “I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke.”
Some of the jokes were also shared by CNN, one of the top networks Trumps despises most.
Here are some of the best responses to Trump’s request:
The best part of the Trump-Cohen tape CNN got is where you hear, in the middle of this very important conversation, Trump yell, “Get me a Coke, please”

Hahah in the middle of the tape Trump yells out to no one in particular “GET ME A COKE PLEASE” then keeps on discussing the payment. I can’t believe this is real life.
