Rape comment apology

Apology0 Comments

Cohen apologizes for his comment that “you cannot rape your spouse.” Non-consensual sex between spouses does constitute as rape, experts say. He made this comment while trying to defend trump from comments made by Ivana Trump.

As an attorney, husband and father there are many injustices that offend me but nothing more than charges of rape or racism. They hit me at my core. Rarely am I surprised by the press, but the gall of this particular reporter to make such a reprehensible and false allegation against Mr. Trump truly stunned me. In my moment of shock and anger, I made an inarticulate comment – which I do not believe — and which I apologize for entirely.
