Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump mused that if he wins the Oval Office in November that he would continue to shoot his hit television show, The Apprentice, from the White House.
Trump’s need for attention is caused by his massively unjustified ego, so it should come as little surprise to the public that he planned to use his candidacy as a platform to continue with this television program. Although Trump was embarrassingly fired from NBC after his disgusting comments about Mexican citizens, the network may change their tune if he somehow slithers his way to victory in November.
The comments by Trump were originally reported by Sarah Ellison, a contributing editor for Vanity Fair, in June. However, due to Trump’s never-ending spewing of far more ridiculous rhetoric, the statement was overlooked by the national media. Now that the clock is running down on the presidential contest, all of Trump’s past statements are being combed through and the best bits are being brought forward for public consumption.
According to Ellison, “NBCUniversal Chief Executive Steve Burke and Trump outlined, presumably fantastically, that Trump should run for president; and on the off chance that he won, he would continue to star in ‘The Apprentice’ from within the White House.” The conversation between Burke and Trump took place in 2011. She continued, “That is the main takeaway here is that Trump doesn’t distinguish between what an audience would be, that you can actually monetize, and what the political electorate is, that would actually go out and vote for someone.”
While it Trump’s chances at winning the presidential election in November is looking abysmal at best, his concept of turning the highest office in the world into a reality show is another reason for the public to ingest why he is completely unfit to be president.
