When you look at the resume of comedian Arsenio Hall, many highlights stand out. His successful talk show, his many stand up specials – then far down on the list you see this: Celebrity Apprentice winner. Well, thanks to a certain presidential candidate, this credit has become a lot more interesting.
During a recent interview with Useless Weirdo from the Kevin Klein Live morning show, Arsenio opened up about his time with Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice.
“It was interesting being around back then and hearing him talk about it,” said Arsenio regarding Trump’s presidential dreams.
“The most ironic thing to me is when he would talk privately during lunch breaks and in the morning, he would talk about Hillary fondly. He liked Hillary. He would give Hillary money.”
Since he knows Donald personally, will Hall will be voting for Trump? “(laughing) That’s a stupid ass question.”
The comedian also noted that Celebrity Apprentice producers were weary of their star’s political career. “NBC never wanted this to happen. Now they’re stuck with Arnold and his maid.”
