Former President Donald Trump, a person recognized for making a literal mess when he’s upset, as soon as threw papers throughout a desk and stormed out of a deposition after studying his authorized workforce had agreed to supply lunch for opposing legal professional Roberta Kaplan, the lawyer stated on a podcast Thursday.

Kaplan has represented Trump sexual assault accuser E. Jean Carroll and Mary Trump, the previous president’s niece, in high-profile instances in opposition to him. While offering a deposition at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida resort and residence, Trump requested that they work by a lunch break, however Kaplan declined.

“And then you could kind of see the wheel spinning in his brain. You could really almost see it,” Kaplan recounted, to the hosts of “George Conway Explains it All (to Sarah Longwell). “And [Trump] said, ‘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?’”

Kaplan stated she defined to Trump that his attorneys had supplied to supply Kaplan’s workforce with lunch, prompting an explosion from Trump.

“There was a huge pile of documents, exhibits, sitting in front of him, and he took the pile and he just threw it across the table and stormed out of the room,” Kaplan stated.

He yelled at his lawyer, Alina Habba, over the scenario, Kaplan added.

When Trump returned, Kaplan stated, he requested her how she appreciated the lunch, and Kaplan stated she’d simply had a banana.

“It was kind of charming — he said, ‘I told you, I told them to make you really bad sandwiches, but they can’t help themselves here. We have the best sandwiches.’”

A spokesperson for Trump’s marketing campaign didn’t instantly reply to requests for touch upon Kaplan’s allegations. But her story shares similarities with what others in Trump’s orbit have stated about his outbursts.

In 2022, former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified earlier than Congress that Trump as soon as shattered dishes and splattered ketchup on a wall within the West Wing after then-Attorney General Bill Barr informed reporters there was no proof of widespread voter fraud within the 2020 presidential election.

That was nothing out of the extraordinary for Trump, Hutchinson stated.

“There were several times throughout my tenure with the chief of staff that I was aware of him either throwing dishes or flipping the tablecloth to let all the contents at the table go onto the floor and likely break or go everywhere,” she recounted.

Trump denied Hutchinson’s account, saying: “Not my thing.”
