Trump Lawyer Joe Tacopina Heckled On Live TV After Trump Civil Rape Trial
“You’re a fucking Neanderthal,” a man repeatedly shouted at Tacopina in footage that aired live on CNN.
“You’re a fucking coward,” the man said, adding: “Fuck you, Tacopina.”
The heckling came after Tacopina was asked about the jury in the civil lawsuit taking just three hours to reach a verdict. The jury sided with Carroll, who claimed Trump raped her in a New York department store in the 1990s. It said Trump owes Carroll $5 million in total damages.
“Yeah, it was fast,” Tacopina said of the relatively quick delivery of the verdict. “I mean, it’s hard to see behind a jury room door. And I don’t know what they were thinking. What it sort of indicates is what people have been saying, which is, in New York, you can’t get a fair trial. And you know, people said, ‘You lost the case when they announced the names of the litigants.’ But again, they found him not liable for the rape.”
Tacopina mostly ignored the heckler until he came to leave.
“OK, I’m going to go now. I have a fan that wants to talk to me over there, so I’m going to go address them,” Tacopina said.
