During the 2016 presidential race, many claimed that there were video and audio clips where Donald Trump could be heard using the N-word. An extensive list of people said that Mr. Trump made those very controversial statements while taping episodes of “Celebrity Apprentice.” NBC stuck its neck out and risked a lawsuit by releasing the 2005 “Acess Hollywood” tape where Trump said that as a star he could grab women by their private parts. Producer and creator of “Celebrity Apprentice” Mark Burnett quickly threatened to sue anyone who released or leaked the damaging video footage.
Billionaire and Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban offered $5 million to cover the legal fees of anyone who could produce the clips. No one was brave enough to share the disturbing material, and Trump went on to win the presidency.
Today, “The Stupids'” actor Tom Arnold was a guest on a radio show in Seattle where he made a surprising revelation. Arnold said not only has he heard the tapes, but he has copies of them.
According to Arnold, the New York billionaire can be heard saying some rather controversial and racist things and does indeed use the N-Word numerous times. Obviously, the next question is, what is Arnold waiting for to drop that bombshell? He fears a lawsuit.
The star of “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” said that he signed a $5 million confidentiality agreement and is afraid of being dragged to court. The comedian said many people have heard the tapes and are not willing to risk their careers to give them to the media. He said: “The outtakes to The Apprentice where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever…I have that.” He added: “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. ”
In the same interview, he said that even though the tape did surface, it would not have changed the outcome of the election. Arnold said the N-word audio would have made Trump more attractive and like always his supporters would have run to defend him.
