President Trump Claims He Doesn’t Know Lil Jon Despite Rapper Starring on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’
On Wednesday (Nov. 7), President Trump gave his first press conference following the 2018 Midterm Elections, during which he claimed he doesn’t know who Lil Jon is.
The rapper previously starred on The Celebrity Apprentice with the current leader of the United States, but Trump apparently forgot. “I don’t know who Lil Jon is,” Trump said, responding to the reporter’s question. “I really don’t.”
The reporter then points out that Lil Jon was on The Celebrity Apprentice with him, to which the president responds, “Oh, he was?”
Back in October 2016, Lil Jon claimed that Trump called him an Uncle Tom while they were working on The Celebrity Apprentice together. The comment was made in response to a reporter asking the president to discuss past allegations of making racist remarks, something he continues to adamantly deny, albeit poorly. reflected on the situation, recalling the situation on Twitter.
“When this ‘Uncle Tom’ incident happened on Celebrity Apprentice in the boardroom several of my cast mates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment,” he wrote at the time. “I can’t say if he knew what he was actually saying or not, but he did stop using that term once we explained its offensiveness.”
