This week, Cohen had to apologize when he made what some viewed as a sexist remark to Real Clear Politics reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns.
"You're very attractive, but I'm not talking about it," Cohen said when questioned about the paternity test this week.
On Saturday night, Cohen's week got worse when his car broke down.

When the tow truck driver arrived, Cohen told all via Twitter that the man said the paternity and sexism controversy made him African American.

Cohen's spokesman did not immediately answer a request for comment.
The tweet was first reported by Buzzfeed.
