Donald Trump accused of throwing things, again

Donald Trump accused of throwing things, again

Donald Trump has once again found himself accused of throwing objects in a fit of anger, this time by attorney Roberta Kaplan. Kaplan, who gained recognition for representing writer E. Jean Carroll against Trump, claimed that during a deposition at Mar-a-Lago for a separate case involving ACN, Trump became so infuriated that he threw documents “across the table.” He also shouted at his attorney, Alina Habba, regarding the incident, according to Kaplan.

During an episode of the podcast “George Conway Explains it All (to Sarah Longwell),” hosted by attorney and Trump critic George Conway, Kaplan recounted the deposition. She explained that the former president was visibly irritated during the proceedings for a lawsuit involving ACN, a multilevel marketing company that sold videophones in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Kaplan’s clients are accusing Trump of promoting ACN and its videophone on his show “Celebrity Apprentice” without disclosing his financial ties to the company.

Kaplan stated that after some time, she informed Trump that they would be taking a lunch break, which he disputed because he wanted to complete the deposition. According to Kaplan, Trump asked her, “‘Well, you’re here in Mar-a-Lago. What do you think you’re going to do for lunch? Where are you going to get lunch?'” In response, Kaplan informed him that his attorneys had kindly offered to provide lunch for them. She described the moment when Trump, faced with a significant stack of document exhibits on the table, picked it up and threw it across the table before storming out of the room.

Neither Alina Habba nor a representative for Trump has responded to Business Insider’s request for comments regarding Kaplan’s allegations.

These recent claims from Kaplan follow another account of Trump’s throwing behavior by Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide who worked under Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Hutchinson stated that Trump would throw food at walls whenever he was angry, citing an example when he discovered that Bill Barr had concluded there was no widespread election fraud in the 2020 election. Hutchinson recalled walking into a room after the incident, witnessing “ketchup dripping down the wall, and there was a shattered porcelain plate on the floor.”

During her appearance on the podcast, Kaplan also mentioned that once the deposition concluded, Trump dismissively referred to her off the record, saying, “See you next Tuesday.”
