“He would state racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable,” the comic and magician said of Trump throughout their time on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
Penn Jillette says he understands for a fact that Mark Burnett has tapes of President Donald Trump stating disparaging, racist remarks while dealing with the NBC truth program Celeb Apprentice.
Half of the magician duo Penn and Teller (who appeared on Star Apprentice in 2012) just recently informed Vulture in an interview posted Tuesday that he is positive recordings exist because “I was in the space” when Trump would state “racially insensitive things that made me uneasy.”
The infamous tapes that have actually dogged Trump given that his project are as soon as again in the news after previous White House staffer and truth star Omarosa Manigault Newman stated she heard the tapes, which presumably include Trump using the N-word throughout production of the NBC series, which he hosted.
Manigault Newman is on a high-profile media blitz for her tell-all book about working on the Trump project and her time in the White House before she was fired. She has released tapes in the last couple of days of supposed discussions with White Home Chief of Personnel John Kelly and Trump that she declares she secretly taped.
Trump on Tuesday, via Twitter, said Burnett guaranteed him the tapes do not exist.Jillette states otherwise. Nevertheless, he will not get in to the specifics of what Trump said due to the fact that now that Trump is president, the “stakes are really high. “”Nothing I can state here harms
my profession. For the world the stakes are higher,”he informed Vulture.”And exactly what I’m aiming to do here is tell you the story emotionally without telling you specifics. I would not feel comfortable discussing what I felt I saw because room– because when I was on that show I was sleeping four to 5 hours a night. I was unpleasant.’ Stress’is the incorrect word, however I was not at my best.”Still, he did state that Trump, throughout Celeb Apprentice production, “would say racially insensitive things that made me uneasy. “Jillette included that Trump would likewise make sexual remarks about females that made him uneasy.”He would ask one castmember if he ‘d rather have sex with this female or that
female,”he stated. But, Jillette would not budge on specifics because “I am an undependable storyteller. What I do, as much as anything, is I’m a storyteller. And writers are phonies. So I can emotionally inform you things that took place racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of empathy when I was in the space with Donald Trump and I ensure you that I will get information incorrect.”
