Well well well….looks like all that bad karma Donald Trump has been putting out finally came back to bite him right on his privileged butt.
The brass at NBC Universal announced late this afternoon that it is cutting all of its ties with the Donald, meaning that the network will not televise the Miss USA pageant on July 12 or the Miss Universe pageant, both of which were co-owned by NBC and Trump.
However, perhaps most damaging to a man as conceited as Trump is the fact that NBC told him he will not be returning as host of his reality show, “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
In making their announcement, NBC said in a statement:
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump. To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC. In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ on NBC.”
No doubt you recall the statements NBC is referring to, in which Trump remarked:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people who have lots of problems,” Trump. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”
Yes, some are good people, you ignorant, self-absorbed sack of human excrement. Actually, the vast majority of them are good, decent, hardworking people who contribute something to society. Which is more than we can say for you, Donald.
Trump, never shy about speaking his empty mind, said in response to the move by NBC:
“If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.”
The difference, Mr. Trump, is that lots of people actually like Brian Williams as a human being and journalist. You, however, have no friends other than the ones you rent or buy.
Good riddance, Trump!
