Penn Jillette Says Trump 'Apprentice' 📼 Tapes Exist: "I Was in The Room" 😱

Penn Jillette says he knows for a fact Mark Burnett possesses tapes of President Donald Trump saying disparaging, racist remarks while working on the NBC reality show, Celebrity Apprentice.

The other half of the magician duo Penn and Teller (who appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2012) recently told Vulture in an interview posted Tuesday that he is positive recordings exist because "I was in the room" when Trump would say "racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable."

The infamous tapes that have dogged Trump since his campaign are once again in the news after former White House staffer and reality star Omarosa Manigault Newman said she heard the tapes, which allegedly include Trump using the N-word during production of the NBC series which the president hosted.

Manigault Newman is currently on a high-profile media blitz for her tell-all book about her time working on the Trump campaign and her time in the White House before she was fired. She claims she has her own secret tapes that she has allowed to trickle out.

Trump on Tuesday, via Twitter, said Burnett assured him the tapes do not exist.

Jillette says otherwise. However, he will not get in to the specifics of what Trump said because now that Trump is president, the "stakes are really high."

"Nothing I can say here hurts my career. But for the world the stakes are higher," he told Vulture. "And what I’m trying to do here is tell you the story emotionally without telling you specifics. I would not feel comfortable talking about what I felt I saw in that room — because when I was on that show I was sleeping four to five hours a night. I was uncomfortable. “Stress” is the wrong word, but I was not at my best."
