Donald Trump‘s 2005 Access Hollywood hot mic comments were abhorrent, and now there is speculation that there may be footage from The Apprentice that would be even worse. Bill Pruitt- a producer for the show in seasons 1 and 2- sent out this foreboding tweet on Saturday:
The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett is a Trump and thus- as producer Chris Nee explained- there would likely be a $5 million leak fee. Nee also suggested that there may be tape of Trump using the N word.
When the Associated Press tried to uncover the tapes, NBC informed them that the network had only licensed The Apprentice from Burnett and thus didn’t have the legal right to share the footage.
According to a Buzzfeed, David Brock- the head of a pro-Clinton SuperPAC- wrote in an e-mail sent to Buzzfeed News that he’d step up and pay the costly fee if anyone leaked the taped. “If a $5 million ‘leak fee’ is what stands between truth and total Trump implosion, sign me up.”
