Between Donald Trump, alleged casual racism, and Scott Baio‘s uninformed opinions, this is a whopper of a story.

Trump Tower is on metaphorical fire this weekend, and as the campaign melts down all around The Donald, things are only getting worse for him — because this afternoon, word is breaking that there is unreleased footage of the candidate using "the N-word," according to a producer.

Chris Nee, an Emmy Award-winning TV producer, tipped off his Twitter followers a couple hours ago that producers of The Apprentice are right now sitting on unreleased footage of Trump saying "the N-word" during his time hosting the show.

Tweeting at public anti-Trump advocate Mark Cuban, Nee mentioned that there is a $5 million penalty fee for leaking footage from the show, and dropped the bomb (below):

@mcuban the price is 5 million to cover the penalty fee. And we all get to hear him use the N word from what I hear https://t.co/IsmJvHHL1K

I don’t have the tapes. I’ve signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the "much worse".

Whoa.

That… that would be huge, if released.

Horrible sexism, bragging about sexual assault, all the things that have already come out, those things are beyond terrible in their own right, and rightfully deserve to see Trump taken down for them.

But this?? Race relations are VERY strained in America right now, and if there’s a tape released of the GOP Presidential candidate dropping an N-word… or several?? WOW!!!

That’d really, really blow the top off this wild controversy.

Of course, it’s not just sexual assault, or alleged casual racism, that The Donald is known for now — former producers and employees of NBC that worked on The Apprentice came out to the Associated Press about Trump’s behavior during the production of the show.

As you’d expect, they revealed that Trump routinely, inappropriately talks about sex — openly — with people who flat out don’t want to discuss it, and the bombshell report includes this little passage:

"We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, ‘You’d f… her, wouldn’t you? I’d f… her. C’mon, wouldn’t you?’ Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat."

Goodness gracious…

And yet there are still Trump supporters out there, like absurd actor Scott Baio!

Baio went on FOX News and said, uh, well, he said this about The Donald:

"[@realDonaldTrump] talks like a guy. And ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around." –@ScottBaio pic.twitter.com/BpnY0YR5lm

Uh… what?

This whole thing is melting down. Something tells us it’s only going to get worse.

Tonight’s town hall-style debate sure is going to be something! Ha!!
