Omarosa Tell-All Book Makes Claims of Racism and Misogyny by Donald Trump on Tapes from ‘The Apprentice’

Is it Access Hollywood all over again?

Like the infamous Access Hollywood hot mic recording—when the President bragged of grabbing and kissing women without their consent and grabbing women “by the pussy”—unaired footage and audio from Trump’s television shows, The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice, remain.

Part of Omarosa’s latest indictments against the President stem from those programs. News of embarrassing and potentially damaging audio from The Apprentice franchise involving Trump making misogynist comments about female contestants, racial and homophobic slurs and mocking the disabled came out in 2016 after the Access Hollywood tape made headlines.

Omarosa states in her book that recordings from that show include Trump using the n-word multiple times based on reliable sources. But she also says she personally never heard him say it.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer—owner of The Apprentice tapes—and creator Mark Burnett refused to release the footage because of “various contractual and legal requirements.”

However Omarosa makes other claims, saying she did witness an incident involving George Conway, the husband of White House Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.

“Would you look at this George Conway article?” Omarosa quotes Trump saying. “Fucking FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo.” Both flip and goo-goo are racial slurs for Filipinos and George Conway is half-Filipino.

Afterwards, Omarosa states she felt a “growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist.”

My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular.”

It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist. Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.”

Reactions to Omarosa’s latest revelations acknowledge the possibility of her claims being true, but many question why she chose to work for him and with him for so long.

On Friday afternoon, Omarosa stated the Trump family once offered her $180,000 a year to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The President has as yet not responded to any of Omarosa’s claims.
