Actor Tom Arnold is claiming he has taped footage of President-elect Donald Trump using the ‘N-word,’ the ‘C-word’ and other offensive terms. The Los Angeles Times reports that Arnold talked about the footage during an appearance Friday on the Seattle radio program “The Dori Monson Show.”
Arnold is quoted in the Times story saying that the outtakes from “The Apprentice” include footage of Trump “saying every dirty, every offensive, racist thing ever.”
Asked by Monson why he hadn’t leaked the tape, Arnold reportedly said, “When the people sent it to me, it was funny.” He explained that the footage circulated years ago as a Christmas video.
“He wasn’t going to be president of the United States,” Arnold added. “It was him sitting in that chair using the N-word, using the C-word, calling his son [intellectually disabled].”
Arnold reportedly was contacted by Hillary Clinton and others before the election and was asked to release the tapes, but held off to protect the people who were responsible for its distribution.
