There has been a lot of finger pointing recently from those on the left who like to portray President Trump as a racist and bigot. Those on the right disagree, arguing that there is no solid evidence of such. Now it turns out that evidence may actually exist, but due to non-disclosure agreements, it may never see the light of day.
According to a former producer on The Apprentice, Bill Pruitt, President Trump made ‘unfathomably despicable’ racist comments while speaking on the set of the popular TV show which he spent 14 seasons hosting.
This was disclosed by Pruitt in speaking on NPR’s Embedded podcast this week. While Pruitt could not divulge specific details due to non-disclosure agreements which he and other employees of The Apprentice were required to sign, he did divulge some interesting information.
“We recorded constantly, we went into the boardroom to set up discussions about how and who should get fired [on the show] without talking and saying directly who got fired, so there was a big ,long exchange, all of which was recorded,” explained Pruitt. “Out of those exchanges came some really unfathomably despicable words said by this guy who is a TV star. I heard it, I watched it and those things are somewhere in some warehouse.”
Then when Pruitt was asked if these comments were only directed toward women or if they were aimed at Jews and African-Americans as well, he said “yes” confirming they were about the two minority groups as well.
“Very much a racist issue,” Pruitt stated.
A second producer, Chris Nee, has provided even more details, going as far as saying that Trump had used the n-word.
While tapes of these remarks allegedly exist, it is unknown if they will ever see the public’s eye due to the fact that everyone on The Apprentice was asked to sign non-disclosure agreements, essentially protecting both the tapes and the information that these individuals hold. While it’s not impossible that someone could risk a lawsuit by releasing more information and/or the actual tapes, that is yet to be determined.
