Trump Called Apprentice Contestant Marlee Matlin ‘Retarded’ Because She’s Deaf

Donald Trump has a way with words, and almost always uses terrible slurs to describe people who have fallen out of his favor.

For example he called former White House employee and “Apprentice” star Omarosa a “dog” and reportedly used the N-Word to describe her.

Three former Apprentice staffers revealed in a Daily Beast story that the President of the United States routinely also 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.”

Do you think President Trump bailing out a few of the big corporations was the right move?

Of course lots of other things happened on The Apprentice.

Noel Casler, an employee on The Celebrity Apprentice, regularly fills us in on what happened behind the scenes.

For example, Casler claims Trump has needed diapers since 2007:

Casler even claims that production would shut down when Trump soiled himself:

Here is video where Casler says you can tell by the way he walks he’s wearing a diaper:

Casler added that Trump repeatedly used the n-word on The Apprentice, although at this point, is anyone even surprised?

Casler also claims Trump wears lifts in his shoes to appear taller:

And this one is a doozy, that Melania uses prescription painkillers:

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.
