So every presidential election for the last decade or so, Donald Trump pretends like he is considering running for the presidency. I never really believe he is serious, because, he’s kind of busy running eleventy billion businesses and hosting Celebrity Apprentice. One of his other entertainment enterprises is the Miss USA and Miss Universe Franchise. Some reports indicate that this enterprise is jointly owned by Trump and NBC. I don’t think that exactly accurate. I believe Trump owns Miss Universe and partnered with NBC for the TV shows.
Which brings us to this year when Trump is actually honest to God running for president. This meant that Celebrity Apprentice would be on hold until he dropped out. I can live with that. But then, Trump said about illegal immigrants ” they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” Well, this caused the Hispanic population’s head to explode. God forbid we mention that the illegal immigrants are committing crimes simply by entering the country illegally, draining our public school systems, burdening our jails, and committing violent crimes. If you live in the south, anywhere, this is no secret. Apparently, it is not nice to mention that criminals commit crimes. Sure Trump’s delivery sucks, but nothing will win the votes of Texans and Arizona voters like promising to seal the southern border with a big ole wall.
So then Univison who airs the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant in Spanish says they are not going to air it anymore because Trump is a big ole windbag who hates Mexicans. So now all the people who work on the Spanish version of the show are out of a job, and all the countries with Spanish-speaking representatives in the pageant can’t watch and Univision (and Trump) lose money. Who cares the least about this? Trump.
Then today NBC also said they will no longer air the Miss Universe or Miss USA pageants either. Well that’s just brilliant. The show is set to air July 12th. All the girls that have worked for YEARS to get to Miss Universe are told two weeks before the pageant it won’t be televised. I mean Cait Jenner had plans to be there and judge! Add Cait to all the people who just lost their jobs. Clearly, NBC hates transgendered folks!
And THEY FIRED TRUMP FROM APPRENTICE! What about the D-list celebrities who need have a free hotel room and a nice per diem, NBC! Think of the Bravolebrities!!! Apparently, Mark Burnett is going to think of a way to do Celebrity Apprentice without Trump. Can you do Survivor without Jeff Probst? Can you have Big Brother without Julie Chen? No. No. You. Can. Not.
NBC doesn’t care! They said today,”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 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.”
Trump did not say anything about LEGAL IMMIGRANTS from MEXICO. He is addressing an actual problem in this country with ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. We cannot just continue to ignore the illegal immigration problem in this country. Our borders are wide open for ISIS and other terrorist groups to get through just as easily as the illegal immigrants who are just searching for a better life.
Trump said he didn’t care and that he’s not apologizing for his statements because they “were correct” when addressing reports at a Chicago campaign speech.
“Whatever they want to do is OK with me,” Trump told reporters in Chicago after a campaign speech to civic leaders.
But Trump’s Corporate office said “NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct. That is why our country is in serious trouble.”
Trump has already promised to sue Univision. I’m sure the legal threats have already begun toward NBC.
Can we please have a moment of silence for the pageant girls and the Bravolebrities effected by this national disaster ?
