Actor and comedian Tom Arnold is on a mission to bring down President Donald Trump, and he recognizes the absurdity of the situation.
The fringe celebrity is hoping to reveal outtake recordings from "The Apprentice," which Trump hosted and Arnold appeared on as a contestant, that he believes would do politically fatal damage to the president, reported Politico.
Arnold is hosting a Viceland show that will feature conversations with former Trump associates such as Michael Cohen, Felix Sater and Anthony Scaramucci, and he said the president recognizes the threat he poses and is afraid to go after him.
“The second he says my name, we’re going to f*cking go in to ['Apprentice' producer] Mark Burnett and he has to open it up for me," Arnold said. "Because I know exactly the episodes. I know exactly what I’m going to do.”
Arnold has claimed outtake footage shows Trump using racial slurs and other offensive language, but the former "Apprentice" contestant said the president's incompetence was on full display in those recordings.
“My whole goal, really, is to get one 12-hour day of the boardrooms shoot, because if America could see that, they’d know what’s going on in the White House right now, how incompetent the guy is," Arnold said. "That’s really my goal. It’s not to hear one N-word -- and by the way, you’d hear much worse than that."
Arnold said Americans would see from those unaired meetings that Trump was incapable of fulfilling the duties of his office.
“You’d see the incompetence that’s going on," he said. "You’d see why we don’t know what’s happening to these children at the border, you’d see why Puerto Rico [happened], you’d see what’s going on with the Supreme Court, why the country is falling apart, all the lies, all the people that were working at the White House, the jobs, the EPA. You’d see why the country is on the verge of this stuff with North Korea."
"If you see one 12-hour day, America would go, ‘Oh,’" he added. "And then when Robert Mueller comes out with his stuff, they’d go, ‘Oh, yeah. That makes a hundred percent sense.’”
Arnold offered a bizarre challenge as proof these recordings exist.
“I just want to see — to go in there and — and if he didn’t say the N-word in those 10,000 hours of ‘Apprentice’ things, then I will let him take a piss on me on the White House lawn, and that will be the pee tape,” Arnold said. “But I also happen to believe there’s a pee tape.”
The actor-comedian poked fun at his own reputation to pull the president down.
“Donald Trump is a D-list f*cking president, and his enemies are D-list, like Tom Arnold,” he said.
