Trump Has No Recollection Of Lil Jon, Who Appeared In A Full Season Of 'The Apprentice' 😑

Another day, another bonkers press conference performance from Donald Trump.


In the wake of the midterm election results that proved decisively that the country is, like, not here for his antics (and also places him in some pretty grave danger), President Trump appeared Wednesday before the White House Press Corps for a wide-ranging press conference wherein he seemed on the verge of puking, nearly choked up about Oprah Winfrey not liking him anymore and, of course, berating the press for not being willing to lie for him.

It was, as usual, bizarre and a bit shocking.

And then someone brought up Lil Jon. You know, as one does.

A journalist asked the President about accusations that he's made racist comments in the past, including Lil Jon's own accusations in 2016 that Trump called him an "Uncle Tom" on the set of The Celebrity Apprentice, on which he appeared twice, in 2011 and 2013. "Uncle Tom" is a slur used to label a Black person as someone who makes himself subservient or deferential to white people. According to Lil Jon, he and several of his castmates confronted Trump about the comment at the time.


But in the heated exchange with the journalist yesterday, Trump's shot back, "I don't know who Lil Jon is." When the reporter reminded him that Lil Jon appeared on The Apprentice, Trump denied remembering him, before going on to say, "I would never do that, and I don't use racist remarks, and you know what, if I did, you would've known about it."



The internet quickly went in on the President's patently ridiculous claim, starting with Trump's former protege and cabinet member, Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who, as usual, brought receipts:

And also revealed, in a detail both hilarious and humiliating, that Trump had meant to call Lil Jon "Uncle Sam":



Of course, one needn't be a celebrity to bring Trump receipts for this particular claim: they were right there in his Twitter feed, as usual:




And all over the internet:




And the journalist who originally broke the story chimed in, too:


Of course, this being Twitter, the jokes using Lil Jon's trademark catchphrases soon came rolling in:





Anyway, seems pretty clear that Trump is lying through his teeth on this one. After all, as Vampire Weekend famously told us, "Lil Jon, he always tells the truth."

A child being kidnapped is every parent's worst nightmare, so one can never be too safe when thinking of ways to avoid danger in public areas. For instance, a couple in Arizona taught their child one simple trick that ended up making the difference when a stranger tried to get her into his van.

Iowa Republican Steve King, who recently won re-election to the House of Representatives despite growing attention for his views that many describe as "white nationalist" or simply "racist," was the subject of a November 6 report by The Weekly Standard, which claimed that King had compared Mexican immigrants to "dirt." King claimed the paper was lying. Fortunately, they had the tapes.

Millennials are pretty sick of being targeted by older generations. It seems like everything is our fault. From the death of the diamond industry, to being "snowflakes" on social media, it's become a sport to make fun of millennials. But millennials fight back, too.
