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.”
If every CEO, network president & member of the media called Mark Burnett right now & insisted he release just one Trump Apprentice “n” word tape @realDonaldTrump would STFU about guys kneeling during National Anthem forever & we’d have solved a problem today. #FridayMotivation

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.
I don’t need to know whether Trump used the n-word to know that he’s a racist.

Omarosa: I have a tape of Trump being racist and sexist and making fun of disabled people!
America: yeah girl, we can all DVR CNN.

I heard Donald Trump call Mexicans rapists, Black men sons of bitches, Muslims terrorists, Haiti a shithole, and Nazis fine people…
I don’t need to read Omarosa’s book to reiterate that he is a racist.

Girl, we’re still not buying this trash book @OMAROSA. We already know he’s a racist. We also know that u were perfectly okay w it until they kicked you out. You were not the only one “keeping a list.” Black folks don’t see it for you. It’s a CHOP! https://t.co/NyMJ9OGLuQ

On Friday afternoon, Omarosa stated the Trump family once offered her $180,000 a year to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
So, now it’s revealed that Omarosa was offered $15K a month by the trump org to keep silent after her removal.
We also know that trump’s former bodyguard Keith Schiller gets paid $15K a month from the RNC.
Looks to be a popular number. Question is, who else is being paid?

Stormy Daniels got $130,000. Karen McDougal got $150,000. Now Omarosa says Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump offered her $15,000/month (that would be $180,000/year) in hush money to sign an NDA to keep quiet about Trump. https://t.co/3zogaSFuPr

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