In audio recorded by Cohen in 2016 that CNN aired Tuesday night, Trump abruptly interrupted the lawyer as they discussed a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal (with whom Trump allegedly had an affair) to demand that someone “get me a Coke.”
Trump’s demand comes at the 2:30 mark below:

Guess he didn’t have his red button handy at the time ― the one that reportedly sits on the president’s Oval Office desk to summon a White House butler with a Coke.
Trump, on the tape, then said what various accounts report as either “please” or “Liz” before returning to the matter at hand.
The tape itself has caused a political stir, showing that Cohen is escalating his break with Trump.
But many people on Twitter couldn’t resist using their new favorite catchphrase “get me a Coke” to have fun at the president’s expense:
