A former employee of President Donald Trump’s game show “The Apprentice” alleged Thursday that “The Donald” was a “speed freak” behind the scenes. Former contestant Tom Arnold confirmed it.
According to comedian Noel Casler, Trump would snort crushed-up Adderall, a medication typically used for ADD and ADHD. According to Arnold, it would allow Trump to film the show and participate in afterparties and go much longer. There have been stories that the president doesn’t sleep the typical eight hours each night and this might be a suspicious cause.
Casler went on, saying that he even witnessed the president inviting teen beauty pageant contestants up to his hotel suite.
The news came from a recent stand-up performance where Casler revealed what his experiences were like during the six years he worked on “The Apprentice” and on some of the pageants during the 1990s.
“I worked on a bunch of those beauty pageants he had in the nineties too,” he said. “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 literally, he would stick his little freaking doll fingers in their mouth and look at their teeth. I’m not kidding. This is true.”
He went on to say that he would line the girls up like they were pieces of meat.
“He’d be like, ‘You, you, and you, if you want to win I’m in the penthouse suite, come and see me,'” he continued. “Yep. If Trump had a cooking show they’d caught the douchebag diet. McDonald’s, chocolate ice cream, and girls that look like Ivanka are all he ever eats.”
Arnold tweeted a confirmation:
“This guy worked on Celebrity Apprentice for 6 years. He did the after parties & was Jared & Ivanka’s handler. Donald Trump abused Adderall on the set & it made him crazy. He even snorted Adderall. Mark Burnett knew it. It’s scary watch tape,” he said with a link to the video.

Another government watchdog resigns — months after Trump fired the old one: report
On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that the State Department inspector general is resigning — just four months after Trump brought him on to replace the one he previously fired.
"Stephen Akard’s departure, which will be effective Friday, was announced to staff by his deputy, Diana R. Shaw, who told colleagues she would temporarily become the acting inspector general in his stead," reported John Hudson.
Trump has now predicted COVID will ‘go away’ in each of the last seven months
President Donald Trump on Wednesday told "Fox & Friends" that the novel coronavirus "will go away, like things go away."
As Democratic political operative Daniel Wessel notes on Twitter, this is not the first time the president has made bold declarations about the virus disappearing.
Back in February, Trump said the virus "miraculously goes away," then said in March that "it'll go away," and then in April declared that "it's going away."
‘Scared’ Republicans ask House minority leader to lay out an agenda since Trump can’t
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has handed out talking points describing the GOP agenda for the upcoming election, since President Donald Trump has been unwilling to chart a course himself.
Some lawmakers "were scared" when Trump was unable to detail his second-term strategy when asked in a recent interview, so several Republicans asked McCarthy to produce an agenda for their own re-election campaigns, reported Axios.
