‘Rappers say it all the time’: Observers predict Fox spin if Trump ‘N-word’ tape leaks

An NBC executive on Thursday rekindled long-standing rumors about former President Donald Trump being caught on tape making explicitly racist statements during his tenure as host of “The Apprentice.”

In a column for Slate, producer Bill Pruitt alleged that there was a video of Trump calling an “Apprentice” contestant the N-word, which is also a claim that has been made by other sources in the past.

“I’ve seen this compilation tape,” comedian Tom Arnold said in 2018. “If you’re on one of these reality shows — there’s compilation tapes of me doing horrible, disgusting things. Of course, I do horrible, disgusting things, but I’m also not running for president. I remember this tape I saw, and I described it exactly. He says the N-word, he calls Eric the R-word. Now they call it the N-word tape. I have friends that worked on that show, and I explained it exactly.”

Reacting to Pruitt’s column, many Twitter users then predicted how Fox News would try to spin such an “N-word” video of Trump should it ever see the light of day.

“Trump on video, calling a black contestant on his game show the N word, is the least BREAKING NEWS of all time,” Michigan GOP watch said.

“I can hear them now …“N word!?!? Of course he can say it Black people say it! Freedom of speech! It’s his 1st amendment right to use it…” said the influencer account Old Man Ebro.

Another individual agreed with the sentiment, noting Fox News hosts “will just say rappers use the N-Word all the time. Lastly, unless the tape is released, why talk about it?”

Worse, there is a fear that MAGA fans will be emboldened by the news and will start using the word themselves in public.

Others remarked that Trump supporters are likely thinking that it makes him more relatable since they also like to spew racial slurs.
