Ex-‘Apprentice’ producer says there are ‘far worse’ Trump tapes to come
A former producer for Donald Trump’s reality TV game show The Apprentice says that there are more tapes of the Republican nominee saying “far worse” crude and sexual things about women than the ones that came to light on Friday.
The Hill reported Saturday evening that Apprentice producer Bill Pruitt tweeted that the 2005 recordings of Trump are just the tip of the iceberg and that more recordings are on the way.
“As a producer on seasons 1 & 2 of #theapprentice I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse. #justthebegininng,” wrote Pruitt.

On Friday, an anonymous source provided the Washington Post with audio recordings made in 2005 of Trump boasting to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in a crude and offensive manner about the power his fame gives him over women.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” said Trump of the women he meets.
“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” he said. “You can do anything. Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anything.”
The offensive language has caused many Republicans to turn their back on the party’s nominee. His surrogates are flooding the airwaves in an attempt to blame the mess on the media. They insist that Trump has grown up in the 11 years since he openly boasted to an entertainment reporter about the power his fame gives him to sexually assault women with impunity.
Trump is set to debate Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Sunday night. The remarks are expected to figure heavily in the night’s topics.
