On Friday, a leaked audio recording from 2005 showed Donald Trump gleefully bragging about making sexual advances on women (and getting away with them because he’s famous) to Billy Bush. Since then, people who’ve previously worked with Trump have hinted that there is much, much worse out there. And that “much worse” just might include a clip in which the Republican presidential nominee says the N-word.
As Bill Pruitt — a producer who worked on seasons one and two of NBC’s The Apprentice — tweeted, “I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse. #justthebegininng.”
Emmy award-winning producer Chris Nee pointed out that there are likely to be huge financial and legal consequences for anyone who leaks audio. Indeed, a source close to Apprentice producer Mark Burnett told BuzzFeed News that the show’s chief “is pro-Trump and has made clear to his teams that he will sue anyone who leaks.”
Nee appealed to loyal Hillary Clinton supporter Marc Cuban for help, tweeting at the billionaire, “Hey [Mark Cuban] – offer to pay the legal fees and fines of anyone who produces the hot mic tapes from #TheApprentice.”
