Tom Arnold claims he’s overheard Donald Trump making racist comments about black people – and that he even once caught him ogling underage girls.
The actor, who was friends with Trump for 30 years before turning on the former reality star, was playing Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live, on Tuesday, when he was asked for the most outrageous remark that the president had ever made in his company.
Arnold claimed it was during Trump’s appearance on a 2005 episode of The Best Damn Sports Show Period.

Then a host of the sports show, Arnold said that he and cohost John Salley asked Trump who he would consider to be the best candidate for his show The Apprentice.
Arnold claims he pointed to a nearby group of black people and said: ‘They would because they’re black, and they’d have every advantage.’
‘He literally said that,’ Arnold added.
And Arnold claims that wasn’t the only inappropriate behavior Trump exhibited that day.
‘When he first walked into The Best Damn Sports Show Period and sat down, he said, ‘Look at that,’ and there were four teenage, 15-year-old girls in the front row,’ he said.
‘And I didn’t notice until I went back and looked at the tape. [They were in] school-girl outfits, and he honed in on them.’
Arnold has claimed Trump has a history of making racist comments.
He said yesterday he has seen and heard the tapes that allegedly show Trump saying the N-word on The Apprentice set.
During an interview on Megyn Kelly Today on Tuesday, the 59-year-old also claimed to have seen behind the scenes footage of Trump making his son Don Jr. cry.

His comment about Don Jr reiterates a tweet Arnold shared in May when he posted, ”Ive see him make Don Jr cry over his choice of tie on the Apprentice in front of everyone.’
When Kelly asked directly if he had seen and heard the N-word tape with his own eyes and ears, Arnold responded: ‘Oh yeah’.
While Arnold didn’t provide the context in which Trump supposedly made the racial comment, he said: ‘He’s on the set of the Apprentice. There’s a fake boardroom set at Trump Tower.’
Arnold, who said he met Trump 30 years ago, has a new TV series ‘The Hunt for the Trump Tapes’ that follows his quest to find the recordings and bring down his former friend.
He said the quest all started when Trump was running for president and he made a comment during an interview, saying: ‘I’ve seen this compilation tape… where he says the N-word and other stuff’.
When the interviewer said they’d like to see the tape, Arnold said he would ‘call my buddies and get it’ but they were too scared to hand it over.
Arnold said that’s when he asked Apprentice creator and now MGM chairman Mark Burnett for the tape.
During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Arnold also told host Andy Cohen about the time he left a note and his then-wife Roseanne Barr left an obscene photo on Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ car because she parked in his parking spot.

Tom Arnold and Megyn Kelly got into a heated argument during their interview when the NBC host questioned him repeatedly about claims he assaulted Burnett’s wife Roma Downey
‘I wrote a note. I didn’t know it was her car at the time,’ he explained. ‘And then my ex-wife, Roseanne… drove up to the car, took a Polaroid of John Goodman’s naked ass, and put that on Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ car, and then took soap and wrote ‘Julia Louis-Dry Pus’ on her car.
‘I swear to God. It’s a very famous side-note story, so you know what, it’s sad that she’s dying on the show,’ he said of Barr, who is being killed off her eponymous show after her racist tweet scandal. ‘She’s a wonderful woman,’ he added of his ex.
‘But if you know the whole story, the ‘Seinfeld’ people were being crappy,’ he added. ‘God bless Roseanne.’
Cohen then asked Arnold about comments he made earlier this year, where he referred to Barr as ‘undeniably racist.’
But the comedian appeared to back-paddle on his claims, saying when they first met, she was ‘the least racist person I ever met.’
‘When I met Roseanne… I’d never met a woman – a person – like Roseanne,’ he explained.
Roma Downey, who is the wife of Burnett, later posted a bruise she claims to have gotten in the melee and wrote: ‘Is your TV show worth it Tom? Please stop’ (photo and tweet above)
‘She was a feminist and the least racist person I ever met. I never met a person like her. I never heard the term ‘person of color’ before. She wasn’t racist when I was with her.’
He believes ‘something happened’ to change her to the point where she is ‘undeniably’ racist.
‘Look at her Twitter feed. Look at how she is. She couldn’t say one good thing about… Something happened. But she wasn’t like that [before].’
The comedian made headlines last week after getting into a physical fight with Burnett at an Emmy’s party.
Burnett has claimed that Arnold has been stalking and harassing him for his show.
Arnold told Megyn Kelly that Burnett knows he has seen the tapes.
‘He has sent me legal letters to try and fight this. Here’s a guy who pretends that nothing is going on. He’s Donald Trump’s best friend. He is covering for him, he’s complicit because he knows what’s on there,’ Arnold said.
Arnold also shot down claims he assaulted Burnett’s wife Roma Downey after she posted a photo of a bruise she claims Arnold gave her in Emmy’s brawl.
She wrote alongside the photo: ‘Is your TV show worth it Tom? Please stop’.
‘I didn’t touch her, I didn’t even see her. Think about this, I went to the party allegedly uninvited, I beat up the CEO of MGM and his wife and then I didn’t get arrested and I got to stay at the party all night – what is going on? I file a police report and had to go to the hospital,’ Arnold said.
Burnett is the creator and producer of The Apprentice, and Arnold has a new show airing this week called The Hunt for The Trump Tapes (Burnett above in 2017)
Arnold and Megyn Kelly got into a heated argument during their interview when the NBC host questioned him repeatedly about the assault claims.
‘Did you cause that bruise?’ Kelly asked Arnold.
Arnold made several jokes about Downey and the incident, to which Kelly responded: ‘Stop that, Tom. Don’t disparage her in personal terms’.
‘She said I assaulted her publicly,’ Arnold replied. ‘That’s disparaging me.’
‘Let’s be honest,’ Kelly said, ‘if you did assault her as she claims, it’s no laughing matter.’
And agitated Arnold hit back: ‘She said that I assaulted her is no damn laughing matter, Megyn!
‘If you defend (Brett) Kavanaugh and those guys, maybe you defend me for one second.’
Kelly responded: ‘No I won’t’, before clarifying she believes Kavanaugh deserves a fair trial.
