Former Apprentice staffers and contestants came forward to help sink Donald Trump’s political ship of fools. The people talked individually about the sexually charged cloud surrounding Trump. They said he constantly rubber-necked female contestants and talked openly about their bodies. The self-described billionaire has been king in his gold tower far too long.

He got away with his coarse behavior, because it was a reality show, where almost anything goes. Plus, he was the boss of one of the most successful reality shows, and he had the power to ruin careers or retaliate. TalkingPointsMemo.com interviewed 20 plus individuals affiliated with the show, and their remarks tell how vulgar was Trump’s behavior toward women.

Twelve former contestants and crew members talked on the record about what they called his crass behavior. Nine more talked off the record, because they didn’t want to break confidentiality agreements.

Apprentice winner Randal Pinkett spoke of his uncouth remarks:

‘He was like “Isn’t she hot, check her out,” [and] “Kind of gawking, something to the effect of “’I’d like to hit that. “’

NBC and The Apprentice show public relations firm spokesman Jim Dowd called the real estate mogul a “lover of women” [and a] “guy’s guy.”

It seems, one of Trump’s most offensive habits was talking about which female contestant he would like to have sex with. The orange man apparently graded contestants by the size of their breasts. Trump also made contestants wear dresses that showed more leg and more cleavage.

In never-broadcast clips of boardroom sessions, Trump frequently asked male contestants to rate the attractiveness of their female competitors, former crew members and contestants said:

‘If there was a break in the conversation, he would then look at one of the female cast members, saying “you’re looking kind of hot today, I love that dress on you.”

‘then he would turn to one of the male cast members and say ‘wouldn’t you sleep with her?” and then everyone would laugh.’

Contestant Gene Folkes remembered that Trump “asked one of the women their breast size at one point,” or said, “are those real or natural?”

Former producer Michael Dietz said:

‘Was he complimenting the women? Of course…I never heard him say anything about women’s bodies, but he was definitely unscripted.’

A substantial number of former crew members said Trump had a crush on one camera operator. Apparently, he commonly made lewd remarks about her, saying she reminded him of his daughter, Ivanka. He also said the woman had a “nice rear.” Of course, he was recently married to former model Melania Knauss, but he still made smutty comments.

A former producer said:

‘He said something like she was cute and she had a nice a**, and it was brought to my attention by someone else that he had a crush on her.

‘We all knew, so that’s uncomfortable in and of itself. I remember it being too much, that he made it obvious.’

A camera assistant, Rebecca Arndt told this story:

‘I remember being in the foyer once with eight or 10 cameras set up and he said something about her being so pretty.

‘He would make it about his line of sight, like “There is a beautiful woman behind that camera, so I only want to look at that.” It was supposed to be considered a compliment, but of course it was inappropriate.’

Arndt continued, saying that Ivanka was prettier:

‘He would just mention it all the time. I remember him comparing Ivanka to her and saying that only Ivanka was prettier.’

Trump surrogate Hope Hicks said:

‘These outlandish, unsubstantiated, and totally false claims fabricated by publicity hungry, opportunistic, disgruntled former employees, have no merit whatsoever.’
