Is anyone surprised at this point??
On Friday, Tom Arnold appeared on The Dori Monson Show on KIRO-FM radio where he says he has a recording of Donald Trump using offensive slurs from when the President-elect was on The Apprentice.
According to the actor:
“When the people sent it to me, it was funny… Hundreds of people have seen these. 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 r***rd, just being so mean to his own children. ‘Oh, this is so funny, this is this guy.'”
Apparently, Arnold was asked by Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s agent to release the tapes just before the election on November 7.
“They said, ‘I need you to release him saying the N-word’… I said, ‘Well, now these people ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ two editors and an associate producer ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ 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.'”
Even if the tapes were released, the True Lies star doesn’t believe it would’ve changed the outcome.
“I don’t think so… I think if the people that like him saw him saying the N-word, he’s sitting matter of factly in front of, there has to be 30 people there, and he’s matter of factly saying all of this stuff. So I think they would have liked him more, the people, for being politically incorrect.”
We’re living in sad times…
