“It was not uncommon on the set of ‘The Apprentice’ for Donald to make public comments about women’s looks, about who he would sleep with or who he would ask others would they sleep with,” Dr. Randall Pinkett said in a video published by the left-wing MoveOn.org Tuesday.
“[It was] demeaning, disrespectful, almost reprehensible behavior for a professional environment,” added Pinkett, who is now chairman and CEO of BCT Partners.
“He has been divisive, he has been sexist, he has been misogynist, he’s been racist. This is not, in my opinion, the leader that we need for our country at this time.”

Pressure is mounting for archived footage from “The Apprentice” to become public after a controversial audio recording of Trump recently leaked.
Footage emerged last Friday of Trump discussing his failed sexual advances on a married woman and groping women without their consent in 2005.
“I did try and f—k her,” Trump says in the clip, which captures his conversation with former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush. "I moved on her like a b---- but I couldn’t get there.
“And when you’re a star they let you do it. Grab them by the p----. You can do anything. You can do anything.”
The producer of “The Apprentice” on Monday confirmed he cannot release footage of the show from its archives.
“Despite reports to the contrary, Mark Burnett does not have the ability nor the right to release footage of other material from ‘The Apprentice,’” he said in a statement with MGM, which owns both his production company and the NBC show itself. "Various contractual and legal requirements also restrict MGM’s ability to release such material."
Trump hosted “The Apprentice” from 2004 to 2015 before entering politics and becoming the Republican presidential nominee in July.
