It was recently revealed that Donald Trump calling Omarosa a “dog” and used the N-Word to describe her but it’s far from the first time the President of the United States has attacked an Apprentice star.
Three former Apprentice staffers revealed in a 2016 Daily Beast story that the President of the United States routinely called deaf contestant Marlee Matlin, “retarded.”
Trump, it is alleged, also made sexual comments about the Oscar-winning actress.
The Daily Beast spoke with three different former Apprentice staffers in 2016 who confirmed the President’s predilection towards using derogatory comments against Matlin. The staffers claim the insults happened both behind her back and directly to her face.
“[Trump] would often equate that she was mentally retarded,” said one source, who had to remain anonymous because of their non-disclosure contract.
In another case, The Daily Beast revealed that Trump once wrote a note during filming that read: “Marlee, is she retarded??”
Another source says that Trump would make fun of the actresses voice and was often still mic’d up while talking to his son, Donald Trump Jr. about Matlin.
Each of the three sources claims Donald Trump was “insensitive” to Matlin’s deafness and would regularly talk to her as if she was “special.”
It’s not really a surprise that Donald Trump would act in such a manner, he is known to mock people with disabilities. Remember when he mocked a New York Times reporter? Here’s a reminder.
From calling Omarosa a dog to using the N-Word and claiming he grabs women by their p*ssy’s, it’s not really a surprising revelation that Donald Trump would attack a deaf woman. If anything it’s a sad commentary on the state of our leadership in 2018.
