Penn Jillette claims Trump said 'racially insensitive' comments during 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Penn Jillette claims Trump said 'racially insensitive' comments during 'Celebrity Apprentice'

It was in those encounters that Jillette said Trump used racially charged language.

Former "Celebrity Apprentice" star Penn Jillette had the flawless opportunity to smear President Donald Trump in a recent Vulture interview titled, "In Conversation: Penn Jillette Talking magic, truth, and Trump's alleged Apprentice Tapes".

The Las Vegas magician joined former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Tuesday with claims that the billionaire was "insensitive" toward minorities.

A contestant on the first season of Trump's TV show "The Apprentice" and a veteran of reality television, Manigault Newman has managed her explosive book tour for maximum effect, conducting back-to-back interviews and teasing out new bits of information in each one, successfully baiting the television-watching president.

However, Mr. Jillette stated he wouldn't share his memory of what the president actually said, because he was an "unreliable narrator".

"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.

On Tuesday, Trump referred to her as a "dog". Critics say the comments are typical of the race-based language Trump uses to attack his detractors. Omarosa insists that, with this tape, she finally has found proof Trump is racist, though maybe his having lead the birther movement against President Barack Obama was proof enough for many. She has released secret recordings of White House staffers allegedly in discussion about potential tapes and how to publicly address them.


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.

She told MSNBC that she's been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating Russian election interference, though she did not provide any details to the network or the AP.

However, he will not get in to the specifics of what Trump said because now that Trump is president, the "stakes are really high". I don't think he ever said anything in that room like "African-Americans are inferior" or anything about rape or grabbing women. "Imagine when he feels he can be frank", Jillette said. But that stature has made him reluctant to discuss details now, Jillette said. What I do, as much as anything, is I'm a storyteller.

Jillette makes it clear that, as a prominent libertarian, he is no supporter of Trump. He claimed there are no tapes of him using a racial slur during production of the reality TV series.

And yet, the showman - a longtime critic of political correctness - apparently holds a certain admiration for Trump's choice to speak unfiltered, even if he sharply disagrees with his policies. But you've heard Trump ramble when he thinks he's being careful. But I'm also happy to hear Charlie Manson talk.

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