Comedian Tom Arnold, while speaking with KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson, said that he has in his possession the unreleased recordings of Donald Trump using insulting language on The Apprentice.
“I have the outtakes to ‘The Apprentice’ where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” Arnold stated. “I have that.”
You might recall that Trump’s popularity suffered during the election when it came out that he used vulgar language to talk about women, even going so far as to brag about groping women’s private parts.
After that, rumors surfaced that there was much more unreleased footage of him using equally vulgar and offensive language. Due to confidentiality agreements, these tapes have never been released.
As to why he didn’t release the tapes before, he said, “I’ll tell you why. Because when the people sent it to me, it was funny. Hundreds of people have seen these. It was sort of a Christmas video they put together. He wasn’t going to be President of the United States. It was him sitting in that chair saying the N-word, saying the C-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children. Oh, this is so funny, this is this guy. The Sunday before the election, I get a call from Arnold’s CAA agent, sitting next to Hillary Clinton. They said, ‘I need you to release him saying the N-word.’ I said, ‘Well, now these people – two editors and an associate producer — are scared to death. They’re scared of his people, they’re scared of they’ll never work again, there’s a $5 million confidentiality agreement.”
Arnold is confident that the tapes will eventually see the light of day, because billionaire Mark Cuban has offered a job for life to the person that releases them. On top of that, a Vanity Fair reporter has said that they would be willing to go to prison if they had to in order to protect the anonymity of the person who releases these tapes.
Arnold says that he “can’t stand” Donald Trump and has known him for 25-30 years. Monson says that he has spoken with Trump and has always found him to be an extremely sweet man.
“That’s the problem with him, he’s so sweet,” Arnold states. “He would call my house every year, every year to ask me to do the show and I wouldn’t do it. And then once he started the birther thing, I was like, I’m completely out…”
Arnold went on to say, “Once somebody’s nice to me, it’s over so I have to stay away from him. I’ve known him for maybe 25 or 30 years. Here’s the thing, so he calls the house the last time and I hang up the phone and my wife’s like, ‘Why did you say you’d do the show?’ I go, ‘I didn’t say I’d do the show.’ She goes, ‘The last thing you said to him is, ‘I’ll see you in New York.’’ I go, ‘What, I did? Oh my God, have my agent call immediately, I’m not gonna.’ But he charms you and I didn’t even realize I’d said that. So, it’s frightening.”
When asked if he thought these tapes would have “finished” Trump’s campaign, Arnold responded, “I don’t think so. I think if the people that like him saw him saying the N-word, he’s sitting matter-of-factly in front of there has to be 30 people there, and he’s matter-of-factly saying all of this stuff. So I think they would have liked him more, the people. For being politically incorrect.”
