Omarosa: Trump uses the n-word frequently, and there’s tape to prove it

“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," Omarosa said.

Forget about the mysterious pee tape — reality villain and former Trump staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman says there’s another tape of Trump, that multiple people have seen, featuring the president using the n-word.

The former “Apprentice” contestant and White House aide, who was reportedly escorted from the White House while screaming and cursing last December, claims that there is a tape of Trump using the n-word, caught during the filming of his reality TV competition series “The Apprentice.”

“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,” Omarosa, who served as the communications director for the White House’s office of public liaison, writes in her memoir.

“It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she wrote. “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.”

Omarosa’s not the first to accuse Trump of using the word or allege he said it on tape. The actor and comedian Tom Arnold, who was once married to ardent Trump supporter Roseanne Barr, claims that he, too, has seen the tape of Trump using slurs.

“I have the outtakes to The Apprentice where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” Arnold told a Seattle radio station. “It was him sitting in that chair saying the N-word, saying the C-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children.”

In the days leading up to the election, there were murmurs about Trump saying potentially embarrassing things during the filming of “The Apprentice.” The rumors were prominent enough that “Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett released a statement that he wouldn’t release any unaired footage from the show and reportedly threatened his employees with a $5 million penalty for leaking.
