Asked if tapes of Trump making those comments exist, Jillette said, “Yeah, I was in the room.”
Jillette gave one example of Trump speaking about women in a demeaning way, but declined to provide more specifics.
“If Donald Trump had not become president, I would tell you all the stories. But the stakes are now high and I am an unreliable narrator,” he said. “What I do, as much as anything, is I’m a storyteller. And storytellers are liars. So I can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was in the room with Donald Trump and I guarantee you that I will get details wrong.”
Jillette appeared on Seasons 5 and 6 of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” the latter of which was an all-star season and also featured Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Manigault Newman, a former Trump aide, claims in her new tell-all book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” that Trump used a racial slur on the set of the NBC reality show.
This week, Trump fired back Manigault Newman in a tweet, saying, “When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”
