Footage of Donald Trump on ‘The Apprentice’ reportedly shows racial slurs, more ‘lewd and sexist’ behavior

Donald Trump appears on NBC's 'Today' show at the Rockefeller Plaza

Just days after footage of Donald Trump describing sexual assault went public, a pair of television producers alleged “far worse” footage of the Republican presidential nominee. According to the producers–and several people who worked on the show–clips from his time as host of The Apprentice involve Trump dropping racial slurs and making female contestants cringe from lewd remarks.

Bill Pruitt, a former producer on the show, tweeted this weekend that there is Donald Trump The Apprentice hot mic footage “far worse” than what the public saw on the 2005 Access Hollywood tape:

After Pruitt’s comment, Emmy Award-winning producer Chris Nee followed up by leveling a more specific allegation against Trump–namely, that he dropped an N-bomb during filming:

The “penalty fee” Nee refers to is apparently a clause in the contract of Apprentice producer Mark Burnett, who owns all rights to footage of the show. Nee tweeted at billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, an outspoken Trump critic, seemingly inviting Cuban to cover the $5 million penalty should someone leak an Apprentice video. (And, as Jezebel pointed out, Burnett is also the producer of Shark Tank, on which Cuban has appeared since 2012.)

Nee was also quick to say that she doesn’t know anything for sure, and to clarify that she never worked on The Apprentice:

The Apprentice-specific allegations follow an Associated Press report on Trump’s “lewd and sexist” behavior during his time as host of the show. “Eight former crew members,” the report claims, “recalled that he repeatedly made lewd comments about a camerawoman he said had a nice rear, comparing her beauty to that of his daughter, Ivanka.”

Another crew member, who was not identified in the report because of a non-disclosure agreement, recalled one instance when Trump talked with male contestants about wanting to sleep with a female contestant while the group stood in front of the female in question. “We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, ‘You’d f*ck her, wouldn’t you? I’d f*ck her. C’mon, wouldn’t you?’ Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat.”

The Trump campaign denied the allegations in the AP report. Apprentice creator Mark Burnett has not offered comment.

    Come on… like Hillary is a saint!? Pssh! What is she teaching women? To stay with a man who gets blow jobs in the White House? What kind of woman role model is she!? I personally can’t wait till this election is over, sick of hearing about it 😬

    • savannah

      Not a Hillary fan at all but it’s disgusting to try and compare his sexist remarks to a wife choosing to forgive her husband’s infidelity. Not even in the same category.

      It’s so sad how many people I’ve seen blame her for bill’s cheating. It’s never a woman’s fault when a man cheats.

      • Me too

        Agree, but as a woman, she should have left his ass as soon as they left the White House. He totally humiliated her, and she took it like a weak woman would & still is… Not someone I think girls should look up to. And yes trump was wrong with his remarks, but what man on this earth hasn’t said remarks like that. Men have dirty minds. I don’t like either of them, wish this election was over already..

        • Ellen Clement

          It takes a stronger woman to make a marriage work than to walk away. You contradict yourself, btw. You say hillary is weak for staying with Bill, but in the next couple of sentences say that we should be OK with trump because all men say those kinds of things. Which is it: are you weak if you put up with that kind of behavior or are we supposed to just accept it because every guy does it? Also, God help us if all guys speak as trump does about women. Just saying.

          • Me too

            Whatever..a weak woman will stay with a Cheater, a strong woman will tell her cheatin man to take a hike! Once a cheater always a cheater. Js

            • Ellen Clement

              I would probably leave a cheater myself. I am only pointing out how your argument holds no balance.

              • Me too

                O thank you so much Ellen … sorry I held no balance.. 😒 get over it! 😂

            • Emmy

              Hmm… I don’t know, divorce is the easy way out for the cheater too.
              The best revenge is to let him stay and make him miserable (LOL). That takes a strong woman.
              The best way to heal is to receive heartfelt apologies and forgive. That takes a very strong and smart women.
              When there’s enough love and trust left after that, it will take hard work but saving the relationship can be done.

              I’m not sure I could be that strong actually. Think I would opt for divorce.

              • Me too

                Are you crazy??? Stay and make him miserable?? Why would that be smart or make you happy? Leave the Cheater…and move on! smh

        • savannah

          I strongly believe I would leave my husband in a heartbeat, but everyone makes different choices when they’re faced with a cheating spouse. I just don’t think her decision to stay in a marriage has anything to do with running for president. Trump cheated on his first wife and probably all of them after that, and I think that’s much worse than forgiving a spouse for cheating.

          I wish the next 4 years were over already haha

          • Ellen Clement

            I agree with everything you just said. I hate the hypocrisy of people. Shame on hillary for what bill did, but trump was just making locker room talk? I mean, seriously? I hate this election. I hate how divided we are. I hate how this is an election based on double standards and emotions/fear instead of the facts.

  • Jen

    If people are so offended by the words Trump used, who in the hell bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Grey????

    • savannah

      Women that are into mutually agreed upon sex with consent, not creepy old men who grab them and assault them

      • Jen

        …says the uneducated Hillary support. Actually do your research and you’ll find that Trump never grabbed anyone. Precious good ole Bill Clinton is the only one that actually ASSAULTED someone. Also raped someone. But who cares about that right…it was SO long ago.
        And Hillary actually DEFENDED a child rapist in court then made fun of/laughed at the accuser. But I guess that’s not quite as bad as Trump’s guy banter. SO very tired of you DOUBLE SIDED, pot calling kettle black Hillary forgivers.

        • Mothership3

          AMEN JEN!!!!

        • Charla

          Is Bill or Hillary running? Trump deplorable supporters have lost a grip of reality. They don’t even see his landslide lost coming. 😂

          • Jen

            Um savannah said Trump grabbed and assaulted someone. so I mentioned the only one who has assaulted anyone is Bill Clinton. Didn’t say anything about him running for president? You are a special kind, sweetie. Very special indeed, like most Hillary supporters

            • savannah

              Don’t misquote me, I said creepy old men who grab and assault them. Never said trumps name in my original comment.

              • Jen

                Haha!!! That’s funny. So who did you mean then exactly? why are you acting like we’re all little kids not adults. Everyone on the board knew exactly who you were implying whether you thought it or not. I just lay the cards out like they are, unlike you.
                but go ahead and send a murderer into the White House. Good luck with that for the next 4 to 8 years.

                • savannah

                  Maybe you feel I’m speaking to you like you’re a child since your comments make you sound like you’re out of control and way over emotional right now. If you’re a trump supporter, scary, but okay your choice. I’m not interested in debating politics with you since there’s no point there. It’s just ridiculous to compare a fictional novel about consensual sex to a man who is a cheating, sexist pig who speaks about sexual assault nonchalantly.

            • Charla

              I guess you’re lacking in analytical abilities, like most deplorables. Not sure why Bill keeps getting brought up. Pretty sure he and Hillary are two different people, i.e. what he did is a reflection upon himself only.

              • Lynn

                Why is bill being brought up!!!??? He’s Not her 3rd cousin! He’s her Cheating husband! Who stuck a cigar in Monica’s V then smoked it!! Go Doormat Hillary! Smh! 😂😂😂

                • Charla

                  And Donald didn’t cheat on and abuse Ivana? It’s common knowledge that Donald cheated on his first wife with a woman who became his second wife. And he’s currently on his third. Hmm 🤔

                  • Lynn

                    Hmmm … Ivana isn’t running for president. She isn’t stepping up wanting women to look up to her in the highest power of America.

                    • Charla

                      And Hillary wasn’t the cheater. Of the two running for president, one has cheated on their spouse, the other hasn’t. 🤔

                    • Lynn

                      One is a strong leader..the other is a doormat. And I’m done arguing…May the best candidate win! 😏

                • NoWayNoHow

                  You are disgusting and have no self-respect! No wonder you are not offended by Trump and his nasty attitude toward women. Guess you wouldn’t mind if he grabbed at your private parts.

        • savannah

          Again, I’m actually not a Hillary voter but nice assumption. It seems you’re the uneducated one here since you equate fantasy sex novels (50 shades of gray) with a man who is currently on trial for possible rape of a minor. And compare trump to bill Clinton, a person not currently running for president. You must be confused.

        • jen

          That’s what defense attorneys do, they defend people. She also wasn’t laugjing at the kid, she was laughing at the prosecution. Why are you not mad at the state for not adequately proving their case?

          • NoWayNoHow

            Jen, save your breath. These people love Kool Aid and you just cannot fix stupid!

        • SciLife

          “Do your research”… Hillary was doing a job defending the guy. Public defenders have to defend a lot of awful people, but by law someone has to do it. She also didn’t laugh at the accuser, that is a false story that has been debunked. Also, the rapist did go to jail after the original trial that was botched by the prosecutor. Hillary had nothing to do with getting him off. I’m all for uncovering dirt as long as the facts are straight. This is not dirt.

          • NoWayNoHow

            Right on!! Hillary Clinton also did NOT want to defend him…she was court ordered to do so.

          • Jen

            Listen to the audio. Obviously you haven’t. I have and it’s not that she’s defending him as much as it is that she laughs at the accuser (who was a child at the time) and makes fun of her. Now THAT is deplorable (since Clinton supporters love that word so much).
            Comments like these are the reason why I don’t get into political debates- let alone on sites like this. It’s impossible to have an educated discussion with someone who is uneducated.
            So once again, DO YOUR RESEARCH.

            • SciLife

              What audio are you listening to? I have heard the interview and she never laughs or makes fun of the victim at any point. I’m pretty well educated, by the way.

    • Charla

      Didn’t know a presidential candidate was held to the standard of a trashy, poorly written, novel… 🤔

      • Jen

        What are you even talking about? Go back and re-read the comments sweetheart. I said that if people are so upset about graphic and sexist words then why was Fifty Shades of Grey a number one bestseller in the same country that people are so offended? I was never comparing the back to a presidential election? Let’s go ahead and go back to elementary school and learn to read, sweetie.

        • Ellen Clement

          In 50 shades of grey, a contract was drawn up, negotiated, and signed. That is the definition of consenting adults enjoying sex the way they see fit. Donald trump said that he doesn’t even ask. That is the exact opposite of consent. And there is your difference.

    • Emmy

      So Jen, how often do you discuss the contents of 50 shades with others (you barely know?). And how often do you brag about grabbing men in their jewel department cause you know you 99% sure will get away with it ? ( Your lawyers will destroy anyone who dares to complain.)
      Aah, right, that’s the difference.

      • Jen

        Knew it was pointless to get in any kind of political debate on a website like Starcasm.
        Should have said: I find it both hilarious and hypocritical of those choosing to continue to talk trash about a candidate over something they said, when the reality is that candidate appears to be the only one (so far as I can tell) in this campaign season to have made a public apology for their actions–that in itself, is telling of the agenda versus the objectivity. Folks, please get your priorities straight and quit letting the media form your opinion for you. Goodnight.

        • jen

          Just because people don’t agree with you doesn’t make it a bad debate, that simply makes it a debate. Maybe you feel that people don’t understand you because you aren’t able to correctly convey what you are saying. Or maybe it’s because you are unable to see the fallacy of your arguement. Or maybe you’re just so blinded by the orange light that you can’t see how idiotic you sound. Oh, before you say it, I’m neither stupid or uneducated, I have a b.s. in political science.

          • Jen

            Nope. Could care less with people agreeing with me. I mean it’s pointless to get into a political debate with people who drink the spoon-fed koolaid the media serves up any chance they get instead of doing their own research. It’s also the fact that anyone responding doesn’t have the wit to argue intelligently.

  • Trumb

    A man making all these inappropriate comments, about women, a hurtful word for Afro Americans, comments about minorities and nazi language, anyone who doesn’t agree with him, etc.. A man using his ‘fame’ as an OK to grab women in their private parts. A man who is dumb, mad or narcissistic enough to do behave a certain way, say these things or brag about ill behavior while microphones and cameras are around, is that a man fit for the job? Zero self control.
    I can’t imagine how much and many times this man would embarrass the US and it’s citizens. His behavior would cause many problems and wars.

  • Aussie cathie

    I am appalled at the tactics that are being used by this pig of a man!!!
