*It’s pretty easy to use Donald Trump and the word “moron” in the same sentence. All you have to do is look at him on the campaign trail and listen to what comes out of his mouth. But his moronic activities are nothing new as you no doubt know.
Nope, his moron side was In full effect in one particular situation while filming All-Star Celebrity Apprentice in 2012 was happening. Back then Trump for whatever reason called rapper/producer Lil Jon an “Uncle Tom” and thought nothing of it, until he was called out for it.
The Daily Beast reports that Trump used the derogatory term for African-Americans while filming an episode where two teams of contestants were tasked to create competing displays for hair care products. Lil Jon donned an Uncle Sam costume to help his team encourage more sales.
After reports of the incident were made public over the weekend, Lil Jon immediately took to social media to give his side of the story.

Lil Jon, whose real name is Jonathan Smith, confirmed that Trump had used that term and claimed he know didn’t know that it was offensive.
“Several of my castmates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment,” Lil Jon wrote. “I can’t say if he knew what he was saying or not, but he did stop using that term once we explained it’s offensiveness.”
Yep, in our estimation, Trump is a moron for supposedly not knowing it’s an offensive term and/or he’s a moron for coming up with the lame excuse that he didn’t know.
In any event, the Grammy winning producer continued, saying that he disliked much of what his former TV boss had been saying on the campaign trail.
“I don’t agree with many of the statements Mr. Trump has said during his current run for President,” Jon said.
