A comedian who worked on the set of Celebrity Apprentice and at beauty contests with Donald Trump says that the president used to snort crushed Adderall pills and invite female beauty pageant contestants up to his room in exchange for a win. Noel Casler, performing on December 1st, spoke about Trump, describing behavior behind the scenes. The video began to go viral when shared on Twitter this week, but Casler isn’t ready to answer questions about it on the record.
“My job was taking care of the Trump family,” Casler says, describing his work on the Celebrity Apprentice set. “Don Jr., Omarosa, Melania. Like a freaking Mensa meeting every day.”
Then he goes on to more specific allegations, describing Trump’s behavior at pageants. “I worked on a bunch of those beauty pageants he has in the nineties, too. That was a good idea. Miss Teen Universe? Yeah. That’s like giving Jeffrey Dahmer a cooking show…He would line up the girls on the side of the stage and he would inspect them….he would stick his little freaking doll fingers in their mouths and look at their teeth…He’d be like, ‘You, you, and you, if you wanna win, I’m in the Penthouse suite. Come and see me.’ Yep.”
Finally, Casler declares, “He’s a speed freak. He crushes up his Adderall and he sniffs it, ’cause he can’t read, so he gets really nervous when he has to read cue cards. I’m not kidding. This is true. I had a 24-page NDA, nondisclosure agreement. I didn’t know then he was becoming president. Now it’s, no way, dumb [redacted]. I’m telling you everything I know. So he gets nervous and he crushes up these pills and that’s why he’s sniffing when you see him in debates and when you see him reading. It’s why he’s tweeting, you know, it’s like he’s out of his mind.”
Tom Arnold, who has made a mission of trying to find incriminating footage of Trump, tweeted Thursday to hint that he was in on the sharing, describing it as a way to use the First Amendment to get around the NDA, and declaring the story true.
Because First Amendment Mark Burnett MGM & Donald Trump cannot hold a stand up comic performing onstage in public to their BS 10 year $5 million NDA. Finally figured out a way to tell these true stories. Tapes too. Noel Casler, American Hero. Funnyman with impeccable credentials https://t.co/V1lkk02wSi

However, when HillReporter reached out to Casler to clarify whether the story was entirely a joke, or, as he asserts during the routine, truth, the comedian told us he prefers not to discuss the content of his routine. He was not willing to confirm this on the record and off the stage, but did retweet others, including Tom Arnold’s tweet above, saying that the story is true or that they’ve heard the same from other sources.
I have no idea if this guy is for real. However, my best friend did cue cards in Hollywood for 25+ years, and worked for Trump during those 1990s pageant years. The stories are exactly precisely what my friend has told me for years.
Precisely. Verbatim. DM if you want.

Trump has not yet responded to the allegations, instead tweeting about Michael Cohen’s sentencing, and to again call Robert Mueller’s investigation a witch hunt.
