“He would say racially insensitive things that made me unpleasant,” the comic and magician said of Trump throughout their time on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
Penn Jillette says he knows for a fact that Mark Burnett has tapes of President Donald Trump saying disparaging, racist remarks while dealing with the NBC reality program Celebrity Apprentice.
Half of the magician duo Penn and Teller (who appeared on Celeb Apprentice in 2012) recently told Vulture in an interview published Tuesday that he is positive recordings exist since “I was in the room” when Trump would say “racially insensitive things that made me unpleasant.”
The infamous tapes that have dogged Trump considering that his project are as soon as again in the news after previous White Home staffer and reality star Omarosa Manigault Newman said she heard the tapes, which apparently consist of 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 Home prior to she was fired. She has launched tapes in the last couple of days of supposed discussions with White Home Chief of Personnel John Kelly and Trump that she claims she covertly taped.
Trump on Tuesday, through Twitter, stated Burnett guaranteed him the tapes do not exist.Jillette states otherwise. He will not get in to the specifics of what Trump stated due to the fact that now that Trump is president, the “stakes are actually high. “”Absolutely nothing I can state here injures
my career. For the world the stakes are greater,”he informed Vulture.”And what I’m aiming to do here is inform you the story emotionally without telling you specifics. I would not feel comfortable discussing exactly what I felt I saw because room– since when I was on that program I was sleeping 4 to five hours a night. I was unpleasant.’ Stress’is the wrong word, but I was not at my finest.”Still, he did state that Trump, during Celeb Apprentice production, “would state racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. “Jillette added that Trump would also make sexual remarks about women that made him anxious.”He would ask one castmember if he ‘d rather make love with this woman or that
female,”he stated. But, Jillette would not budge on specifics due to the fact that “I am an undependable storyteller. What I do, as much as anything, is I’m a storyteller. And writers are liars. I can emotionally tell you things that occurred racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of empathy when I was in the room with Donald Trump and I guarantee you that I will get information wrong.”
