The news is now pretty much viral: Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is a total dick. Total. And he probably knows less about law than I do, which ain’t much, I’ll admit. But at least I have never stated in an interview with The Daily Beast that “by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse,” implying that there is no law against spousal rape. Wrong, dude. Spousal rape is illegal in all 50 states – even South Carolina and Texas. It’s illegal in many other places with horrendous records on civil rights — places like Paupa New Guinea, Turkey, Namibia, and Israel. Maybe Cohen was referring to Botswana or Tajikistan when he implied that spousal rape is legal, or OK, or whatever the hell he was implying.
