Tom Arnold just announced via Twitter that Trump's people threatened him with a defamation suit, so he will "Open Apprentice vaults 4 discovery! Miss Universe too!!"
Original story below:
Comedian Tom Arnold has revealed he's in possession of "unreleased outtakes" from Apprentice featuring president-elect Donald Trump saying "every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever." Arnold, speaking with KIRO Radio's Dori Monson Friday ahead of a performance in Seattle, also claimed that editors and producers have been "scared to death" to release the tapes.
"Hundreds of people have seen these," Arnold said, according toMyNorthwest. "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."
Shortly before the election, Arnold added, he got a call from the new Apprentice host Arnold Schwarzenegger's agent. "I get a call from Arnold's CAA agent, sitting next to Hillary Clinton," he said. "They said, 'I need you to release him saying the N-word.' I said, 'Well, now these people—two editors and an associate producer—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."
Back in October, the Washington Postobtained and shared audio of a 2005 conversation between the president-elect and former Access Hollywood personality Billy Bush in which the man who will soon occupy the White House on a seemingly part-time basis bragged about grabbing women "by the pussy." Bush was subsequently fired from his role on NBC's Today show, while the president-elect suffered practically zero consequences.
