Tom Arnold fights with Mark Burnett 

Tom Arnold, who has been working on a show documenting his search for Trump tapes during his time on The Apprentice, got into a scuffle with former Apprentice producer Mark Burnett. Arnold’s show (The Hunt for the Trump Tapes )is an eight-episode series about his search for incriminating tapes on President Donald Trump and includes interviews with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penn Jillette, Judd Apatow and Rosie O’Donnell and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. Arnold has been going after the Burnett and urges the successful producer to show the incriminating Trump tapes that allegedly have Trump using the N-word several times.

“I am going to keep hammering Mark Burnett until he shows America [the tapes],” Arnold said at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour in July. “He sits next to Donald Trump and gives him cover and he never says one word. People are at the border. They are getting their kids snatched from them. It’s cruel… and Mark Burnett says he’s a Christian.”
