Penn Jillette: Trump said 'racially insensitive things' on 'Apprentice' set

Penn Jillette Trump said 'racially insensitive things' during 'Apprentice' tapings

Penn Jillette, half of the magic duo Penn & Teller, says producer Mark Burnett has tapes of Donald Trump making racially insensitive remarks during Celebrity Apprentice. Jillette described "those two hours every other day in a room" with Trump "every ten minutes" was like "fingernails on chalkboard".

Jillette said Trump would ask male cast members "if he'd rather have sex with this woman or that woman", for example.

Jillette's profile made headlines today because former Apprentice franchise Villainess-in-Chief Omarosa, during interviews plugging her book about her time in the Trump White House, Unhinged, has said she's heard a recording to Trump using the n-word in an Apprentice outtake.

Trump blasted Manigault, who served as Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison until her firing in January, for the claims in her new book that she heard tapes of him saying the N-word.

On Monday, she told MSNBC's "Hardball" that she heard Trump using a racial slur on tape, in reference to first-season contestant Kwame Jackson, who is now a strategic consultant. On Monday, Trump tweeted that Burnett "called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".

"You want someone capricious and petty and narcissistic to be on your reality show, and boy - I hate to say this - but playing tapes of him doing that job might be unfair", he added. "And I'm not going to be bullied by Donald Trump", she said.

If Donald Trump had not become president, I would tell you all the stories.

Penn Jillette is the one who talks.

Fired by Kelly in December, Manigault Newman now says many of Trump's actions gave her pause but she was sympathetic to him as a longtime friend and mentor.

Jillette couched his words in a lengthy explanation of memory and responsibility now that "the stakes are high" for explaining what, exactly, Trump has said about race.

Manigault Newman continued to stir the pot Tuesday, providing CBS another audio recording that she said showed campaign workers discussing the alleged recording. What I do, as much as anything, is I'm a storyteller.

"Which means if I'm in a room with Trump I'm happy to hear him talk".

"I want those tapes to be used against him", the comedian remarked, but believes the context behind why he said what he did would make the situation complicated. He said Manigault Newman had called him "a true champion of civil rights" until she was sacked.

"I like people when they don't have filters". I love the Beat poets.
