The former "Celebrity Apprentice" talent handler on what he saw behind the scenes.
Full Disclosure: An Interview with Noel Casler
|by Anonymous||reply 159||10 hours ago|
WHILE IT WAS THE RUSSIANS, wreaking havoc on the election, who won the White House for Donald John Trump, the man who made Trump palatable to voters—who burnished the popular image of the longtime mob money launderer, serial rapist, and piece of shit human—was the TV producer Mark Burnett.
On his “reality” show The Apprentice, Burnett sold America a successful, hard-working, comfortably wealthy version of Trump that was completely divorced from reality. On the show, Trump had his shit together. On the show, Trump was an alpha male. On the show, Trump was not afraid to say “You’re fired” to someone’s face. The Trump on the show was a fictional character.
The comic Noel Casler worked on Celebrity Apprentice for six seasons. For the last three, he worked closely with Ivanka Trump. Unlike his colleagues, Casler has bravely thwarted his nondisclosure agreement, taking to the stand-up stage, and to Twitter, to tell us the unvarnished truth. And like Trump’s hair-do, it ain’t pretty:
Greg Olear: Let’s start with your bona fides. You were a staffer at The Apprentice, which with its Celebrity Apprentice incarnation was on TV for much longer than I’d remembered. Donald John Trump hosted the show from 2004-2015, so he really did jump from that job to the presidency, which seems even more preposterous when I type it out. How long were you working there, and what did your job duties involve?
Noel Casler: I was on Celebrity Apprentice for six seasons of the Finale Tapings. I initially took the gig on a lark. A friend of mine had been given the job of Talent Executive for the first season of CA, which has shot in SNL’s Studio 8H. She needed some experienced talent handlers, which is what I had done for most of my career in live TV, starting in 1993 on the Kennedy Center Honors. So I was assigned to the Celebrity Talent, basically making sure they get delivered to the DGA Stage Managers on time for their live “hit,” and dealing with all their needs backstage. That first year I was assigned to Piers Morgan. In subsequent years I handled the musical performers, such as Cyndi Lauper. Then for the final three seasons, I was Ivanka Trump’s exclusive handler. That’s when the fun really began, LOL.
GO: We’ll get to Ivanka in a second. First: like most Twitterers, I read your feed with astonishment. “How can he get away with saying this stuff?” I say to myself. So let me ask point-blank: How can you get away with saying this stuff? Didn’t you sign an NDA?
NC: I say what I say because it’s true. Trump knows it is true. During the 2016 campaign, Mark Burnett threatened to sue anyone who had worked on the Apprentice crew. This caused many of my colleagues to fall silent. (They had been speaking out on Facebook—including former directors of the show— and I think word got back to him.) I told the HRC campaign what I knew, and at their behest, I told People Magazine. I address the NDA stuff in my stand up.
GO: Yes, to great comic effect. I’ll add that NDAs are typically used to protect trade secrets, not to cover for a a corrupt criminal running for president. But then, Burnett wanted to make a show extolling Putin, so he’s not the most patriotic guy. What can you tell us about him? Burnett, not Putin.
NC: He is the man behind the curtain in many respects. And becoming enormously wealthy. I will say Mark Burnett helped create the Trump we now see. He’s one of his staunchest supporters and allies, and was in the room for many a racist tirade from Trump’s mouth that was recorded by the audio crew on that show.
|by Anonymous||reply 1||05/09/2020|
GO: I remember there were rumors of tapes of Trump dropping the n-word that never seemed to materialize. Not that any of his supporters would care.
NC: Trump gets off on using racist terms, especially if there are people around who happen to be of that particular minority. He seems to hate Puerto Ricans the most. I will leave it at that, but his policies after Hurricane Maria came of no surprise to me. He is basically trying to kill them, in my opinion.
GO: Nothing we’ve learned about him these last three years suggests that your opinion is wrong.
Four of the biggest bombshells you often talk about on Twitter are Trump’s incontinence and use of adult diapers; his drug addiction; his STD; and his creepy relationship with his daughter, Ivanka—your former boss.
Let’s take them one at a time. First, incontinence. To play devil’s advocate, why does it matter that he wears adult diapers?
NC: It matters because his incontinence stems from his decades of stimulant abuse and fast food diet. He pretends he’s the model of physical health, when instead his bodily functions are being dictated by his drug addiction—and he tries to cover it up. So it’s evidence of his incompetence, and one of the main reasons for the NDAs. The crew nicknamed CA “The Shitshow,” because he would soil himself during tapings, often after flying into a rage and cursing out the Script Dept. Because he couldn’t read a three-syllable word.
GO: Is Trump illiterate?
NC: He is severely dyslexic, and has been his entire life. Ivanka would joke about it off camera.
GO: The drugs are obviously a much bigger deal. Anyone who’s watched him during the last three years—and especially during the pandemic pressers—can see that there are times when his affect is radically different. The press will describe him sometimes as “subdued.” Can you detail what you’ve seen?
NC: He snorts Adderall as his maintenance high. When he gets too wired, this is tempered with benzodiazepines. There’s also a robust use of cocaine and methamphetamine in the Trump orbit, and I’ll leave it at that….NYC is also full of folks with anecdotes of Trump’s drug use. They come up to me and share stories all the time. Look into the Dr. Bornstein stuff if you want to know more, and ask yourself why Trump sent [his bodyguard] Keith Schiller to strong-arm the doctor and steal his medical records, shortly after being elected POTUS.
GO: Next: Sexually transmitted disease. I don’t think this is important, except that it tells us something about his character, or lack thereof, if he has herpes and goes around having unprotected sex—and, even worse, sexually assaulting and raping women.
NC: Yes. “Captain Valtrex” was another nickname for him. He sent his secretaries to the CVS on 57th Street to pick up his scripts for that herpes treatment. He used the name “John Barron” on some of these prescriptions.
|by Anonymous||reply 2||05/09/2020|
GO: My sense of Trump, from afar, is that he is first a narcissist, in the clinical sense of the word; second, that he is a coward, terrified of being beclowned, or of losing; and third, that he is a bully. Bullies are usually cowards, of course. I’ll add that while he has good instincts, he is not smart, in the conventional sense. What is your impression of him, having seen him up close for so long?
NC: He is very unintelligent, but he is also a master conman. He knows what he’s doing, in the sense of advancing his own interests. He is like a “Godfather,” as Michael Cohen described in his House testimony. Also, I don’t buy the dementia talk at all. His debilitation is from drug use and the slowing down of a brain that was never high functioning. But listen to the Lev Parnas audio about taking out Ambassador Yovanovitch: That’s a mob boss mentality, and a guy in charge of his faculties and interests who knows exactly where he is and what he’s doing. If anything, the dementia talk offers him an alibi to use later on.
GO: You call Don Jr. the “second-dumbest son.” He seems to be like a dumbed-down Kendall Roy. He’s also a very good troll. I blocked them all long ago, but there were times he’d tweet something and I’d laugh, in spite of myself. How closely did you work with him, and what was your sense of him?
NC: “Scrump” was his nickname on The Apprentice. He makes his father look like a nice guy. He is also just as racist and addicted. He is a deeply troubled human being with his own eyes on power, and also in perpetual conflict with Ivanka. There is no love lost between them.
GO: Is Eric as much of a moron as his portrayal on Saturday Night Live indicates? He’s now so all-in that he deserves no mercy, but it seemed like, with his original charity, he was at one point making a concerted effort to do something good. On the other hand, his wife is particularly awful, even for MAGA.
NC: We nicknamed Eric “Twizzlers” on CA because he would steal all the red Twizzlers from craft services.
GO: I really hope the Secret Service uses the same nicknames for those two.
NC: Eric is the only one on Twitter from his family to have blocked me.
GO: He blocked me too, ages ago. I can’t remember why. How come he blocked you?
NC: I posted a pic of him smiling and wrote the caption: “Sun’s out, Gum’s out!”
GO: Eric’s teeth are a sensitive topic, from what I gather.
Did you encounter any of the Trump/Russia figures on the set there? Roger Stone, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort?
NC: Felix Sater was a frequent guest at the CA afterparties, especially the ones held at Trump Soho in 2010. He would make introductions between Ivanka and the wealthy Russians that made up most of the guest list. This whole thing is a much bigger operation than most people realize. I hope they do realize before it’s too late.

GO: That brings us to Ivanka, whom you obviously know pretty well. I’ve read that her public persona is complete bullshit. That thing she does where she sex-whispers, like a drag queen doing Marylin Monroe, and tries to present as a serious grown-up, is all an act. I’ve heard she can be funny and she curses a lot. What’s her deal?
NC: Yes, it’s all an act. Her speaking voice is much lower. That’s the voice she uses to pull daddy’s strings. Everything about her is a contrivance.
GO: So she uses the sex whisper to talk to her dad. That’s horrifying, but not surprising. If Ivanka had to pick between her father and her husband, which would she choose? I’m guessing Jared, because he has more money.
NC: Yes. I would go with Jared—they have a comfortable arrangement.
GO: What else did you witness in that father-daughter relationship that struck you as strange?
NC: Everything. Ivanka runs the show and plays her father like a fiddle. She and Jared are using him to gain power. I don’t fear Trump; I’m terrified of them getting control of this country—and I believe that is their plan. As I often say: “Trump wants music to play when he walks in a room, he wants to get high and he wants to grab women; Ivanka & Jared want to rule the world.”
GO: They would be the most boring, ineffectual king and queen of all time—and that’s saying something.

Wow - I’m impressed. How is it that only one person in his world has come forward? The drugs things is the one thing that shocks. Still dubious about the “snorting Adderall” claim. That is very direct though. I thought that his adamant anti-alcohol stance meant he avoided drugs. I could see him taking pills - but not snorting. Doesn’t sound right.
Jaw-dropping that this conman still maintains support from close to 50% of US. Admittedly much of it is from having a news channel -Fox - that serves as a propaganda arm that not only props him up but also is a nonstop anti-Dem brainwashing. Sad really - but after 30 years of fighting for gay rights and Democratic politics, I’m tired and need to focus on making the most of my remaining time on earth. The whole thing is too depressing to contemplate.

As seen in Hilary's documentary, he was basically STALKING her at some point during the debates. Basically standing right behind her as she tried to walk around on the stage.

Read my post. I said that telling people he shits his diapers and has herpes, makes him even more relatable to his base.
I think this is a bunch of bullshit, and it’s being “leaked” to do just that: make his base angrier at someone whom they perceive to be a Hollywood lib, making them hate us even more, and while creating a narrative that make them even more sympathetic to them.
This is why DL has become so tedious. Any well thought out discussions regarding political tricks used by politicians, and offered as talking point about why we need to be better equipped when thinking things through, and perhaps not offer these easily manipulated idiots, low hanging fruit, like this interview, is inexplicably perceived to be support for Trump, which it is obviously NOT.

R36 Adderall can speed up your metabolism when you take it at a younger age and stay on it for short periods of time, but after many years of use, it's one of the side effects that wears off. One snort of Adderall cannot ward off two big macs, large fries, and a chocolate cake.

Back about 20 years ago I had a long conversation with a real estate construction manager about various real estate developers in NYC and the according to him the consensus in the industry was that Trump was a unintelligent con man whose word and his signature on contracts were meaningless, since he would almost always renege and sue claiming inferior work or products were delivered in order to pay less or in many case a small percentage of what the providers were owed. That included banks with which he had large outstanding credit lines that he would default on. That is why by the late 1990s nobody wanted to do any more business with him and US banks would no longer give him credit. He went to Europe, Russia, Asia and even UAE and Saudi Arabia to get loans. Many of these foreign loans were backed by Russian related shell companies or dubious characters from high risk countries. He's always been a truly terrible businessman and a disreputable con man and a sleazy character all around that relied on an alternate public persona to build up his image.

Honest question as I don't know...Where do Trump Supporters get most of their news? I know Fox, and Facebook, but I'm not a member of facebook so I don't know how that works. Is there a section of news like google and yahoo have? Or is it just from "friends" passing news stories on to each other?
Can this story be posted on Facebook? This story and others like it should be wall-papering all right-wing sites to at least get the stories out there. A majority of the people who support Trump do so because they are completely unaware of most of his true beliefs (none), racist views and massive corruption. I have found this hard to believe, but many truly don't know.
So if someone doesn't mind, please give me a short explanation of how Facebook works, and how for many, it's their primary if not only news source.

R44 is right. I didn’t *snort* Adderall, of course, but I did take it for about 10 years. (Valid prescription, under a doctor’s care, etc.). For the first year, my weight dropped significantly. But, after about a year, the weight came back and I even gained a bit more. I was taking 60 mg/day, so you’d think I would have been very thin... but I was about 40 pounds overweight. So, you can absolutely be overweight and be on Adderall.
|by Anonymous||reply 64||05/13/2020|
R64 here again. Snorting Adderall would help explain all the random and weird sniffing & sniffling Trump does.
|by Anonymous||reply 65||05/13/2020|
R44 and R64 are both correct. Of course you will loose weight initially when using a stimulant - everyone does. After using any drug, your body is constantly fighting to get back to "equilibrium" and will counteract the effects of the drug to the best of it's ability. Over time, you will need more and more of the drug just to achieve even 1/10 of the initial effect. This is why alcoholics get the "shakes" after a period of no alcohol. Their body trying to overcome the extreme depressant that chronic alcohol chronically presents on their system - the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid is inhibited and the body begins to rely on alcohol to maintain homeostasis. Then, when the drinks stop flowing, the body is sent into a state of alarm and stimulates the endocrine system to counter the effects. It can take weeks of no alcohol to change what the body has been doing daily for years in many cases. Same goes for stimulant drugs - constant stimulation will cause the body to do the opposite. I have been prescribed Adderall on and off for years and yes - always loose a fair amount of weight in the beginning. That said, if I started eating cheese burgers for every meal and just consuming vast amounts of fast food and stop exercising - I would quickly develop a dumpy body just like Trumpy Bear. Trump's behavior when "up" is plainly obvious to anyone who has a clue what to look for. He behaves like a speed addict from the sniffing, snorting, wildly erratic facial expressions, etc. Snorting any drug can lead to severe issues in the nasal sinuses (some are horribly corrosive as they are not designed to be exposed to the nasal membranes. I have never snorted Adderall and would highly discourage it. Trump was a well known coke abuser for decades - whether he drank alcohol or not.

When Dump was nothing more than a washed-up-tabloid-has-been, he was mildly amusing. Everything about him was so tacky, cheap and of another decade - the entire premise was like an inside joke.

I dunno. Yeah, we all have things we like/don't like and it's all subjective but liking The Apprentice is one of those "oh, fuck no!" things for me along with golf and Downton Abbey.
I started learning about the awfulness of Trump back in the 80s reading Spy Magazine and he never seemed fun or "harmless". He's been creepy and gross since Day One.

Never watched the Apprentice. My first experience with Trump was from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous back in he 80s. We got a tour of his penthouse in Trump Tower and he was bragging about how everything was covered in gold. It was so incredibly tacky. Like what trailer park trash would think is elegant if they win the lottery. I found him skeevy then and not much has changed.

My sister and her husband never watch TV, except for sports and Fox propaganda. I don’t think he has the attention span for anything with a plot. An exception was the Apprentice. I figured the show was shit and had never seen it, but I saw it once. They were so excited. I had to keep asking, “why is that interesting?”, or “why is that amusing?” It was the episode with Meatloaf and Gary Bussy. I couldn’t even sit through it. I went to bed.
My sister is apolitical but has been brainwashed by 15 years of having Fox running on all the TVs at all time, because he can’t tolerate quiet of any kind. But she isn’t a stupid person and doesn’t have an excuse to be an ignoramus. He is stupid. Naturally so. He falls for every con man that comes down the pike. It seems that if someone collides with him on some illegal scam, such as some kind of tax-dodge, he seems to trust that person. Then things go to shit and he actually does worse than if he actually paid taxes and made a moderate profit.
When I gave him some investment advice, the deal killer was that he told me that he wanted a guarantee, and something “safe”, and I kept telling him that nothing was safe, even doing “nothing” was not safe, and no reputable person would ever giving him a guarantee. And why would I give him a guarantee for nothing?. He didn’t want to hear that. So he gave his investment money to a guy who promised to invest his money for “no fee”. I tried to explain that there had to be a fee somehow. They guy had to feed his family. I told him to ask himself why he would do this for free? Then I finally said, if you have to do this, give him $2500 only, but no more, to see how it went. So, the idiot gives him all his money, $45,000.
And of course, there were all sorts of fees. Especially, short-term sales fees, and since he needed all the money within 4 years for his son’s education, that was costing a few percent in short term fees, plus the other fees. This is after I had spent years getting them out of another similar high-fee fund, but doing so without having to pay any exit-fees because I did so carefully. And here’s the cherry-on-top: I had already been managing their money for no fee, and had made them 53% over three years, while managing risk, which is a terrific return, so it was greedy stupidity.
So, I don’t know what it means to be a Trumper, but my brother in law already liked the Apprentice show before Trump was a politician. He likes cheating on his taxes. He thinks investing is the same as gambling. He likes making money illegally. He resents minorities, oh, he’s a racist, let’s just say. I miss my sister, since I won’t visit with her when he’s around.

This is more reason that at some point, the debates if they ever happen, that Biden needs to challenge Trump to take a drug test with him. You know Biden's campaign know all about Trumps drug usage and they need to make a huge thing of it. Make Trump squirm like the worm he is. If he refuses (which he would) they need to demand to know "why Donald, what are you hiding?".

R102, sounds good. Furthermore, Biden should just accuse Trump of cocaine and methamphetamine abuse. He doesn’t need proof for it. He should just say “people are saying”, and use the same language that Trump is famous for.

Do you think he changes his own diaper? On the one hand, I feel like he’d be humiliated for anyone to see/smell that he shits himself or to even buy his diapers for him and, on the other hand, I feel like he wouldn’t demean himself by changing his own soiled diaper. He must claim that the diapers are for someone else, but he lives alone in the White House so who would he say they’re for?

Castler has one major thing in his favor. Trump is not going to say much, or anything, about these claims because he's terrified if he does he'll be challenged to take a drug test by an independent testing source.
So once again Mr. Biden, MAKE SURE YOU CHALLENGE THE FAT BASTARD TO TAKE A DRUG TEST WITH YOU!!!

IIRC, there was a post awhile back on a Trump thread that he removes his bedsheets himself and piles them in the corner of the room, rather than having housekeeping people do it. That would make sense if he’s always shitting himself.

He was on Stephanie Miller's happy hour podcast too. One of the things he described is Trump backstage at the teen beauty pageants inspecting the teeth of the girls, because he likes the big toothy types like Ivanka.

Lonely leches would call her, describe the type they wanted and when, she'd call the basically warehouse of girls and they'd pick a match and then my friend would arrange the meet. This is was in the early oughts, but she'd been working for them through most of the 90s, as well.

The most important thing this interview confirms is that Trump is just the puppet. And even though he thinks he’s the most powerful person in the world, he isn’t. Because as his numbers continue to fail and he doesn’t get re-elected, his handlers will be threw with him and onto installing the next puppet. Trump’s days are numbered and he hasn’t exactly been discreet so we know what to look for, who to call out and how to prevent this going forward.
