Tom Arnold says he has outtakes of “The Apprentice” in which Donald Trump uses racial slurs.
“I have the outtakes to ‘The Apprentice’ where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” the actor said in an interview with KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson on Friday. “I have that.”
When asked by the Seattle radio host why he hadn’t released the tapes, Arnold said: “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 explained.
“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 former “Roseanne” star continued.
Arnold said that the Sunday before the presidential election, he got a call from the agent for new “Celebrity Apprentice” host Arnold Schwarzenegger asking him to release the recordings. But Arnold said “Apprentice” producers 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 said.
He starred alongside Schwarzenegger in the action comedy “True Lies” in 1994.
Trump first hosted “The Apprentice” in 2004 and then spinoff “The Celebrity Apprentice” from 2008, but NBC cut ties with him in June 2015 as after his comments about Mexican immigrants.
