Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 15, 2016

While shooting the 13th season of The Apprentice, Donald Trump repeatedly used a racial slur to refer to rapper and contestant Lil Jon -- even after several producers urged him to stop, three staffers on the show told The Daily Beast. During an episode of a season that first aired in 2013 (dubbed All-Star Celebrity Apprentice), the "Turn Down for What" singer was tasked, along with the other celebrity contenders, with mounting competing displays around and inside glass trucks in order to promote hair-care products. In the heat of competition, Lil Jon bought and donned an Uncle Sam costume to help advertise the "beautiful" hair product. During the day's shoot, Trump himself caught wind of this gimmick and began referring to Lil Jon around Apprentice staff as "Uncle Tom" instead of Uncle Sam. "We kept trying to explain to [Trump] that that's not a word you can use, that it's offensive," another Apprentice employee told The Daily Beast. "One of the executive producers had to call him up directly to [plead with] him not to say it, and Trump was like, 'No, that's a saying, it's Uncle Tom.' There are several takes in the footage of the dailies that has him trying to figure out the difference between 'Uncle Tom' and Uncle Sam."

Did he call him lazy, too? Well, at least he didn't grab his ass and shove his tongue down his throat while insulting him wth racial slurs.

So there's that.

Not mentioned in the article is that Trump considered it a compliment.

He obviously wasn't pretty enough. Or had hit puberty.
