NBC to Donald Trump: You're Fired

Celebrity Apprentice Premiere Date 2015

Donald Trump is going to have a lot more time to spend on his presidential campaign in the weeks and months to come, because NBC has severed its relationship with the outspoken entrepreneur.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the network said in a statement released Monday. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

That means the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, part of a joint venture between the Peacock net and Trump, will no longer air on NBC.

“In addition,” the statement continued, “as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Apprentice on NBC.”

 Celebrity Apprentice, which is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and was renewed in February for a 15th season, will continue at the network.

Last week, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision announced that it would not air the Miss USA pageant in light of Trump’s recent comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico.

“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” Trump said soon after announcing his bid for president. “And some, I assume, are good people.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    We shall overcomb! Finally NBC decided to send him on his way.

    • Kim R says:

      On the new Tuesday morning, when asked about the firing Donald said he had to sever his ties with NBC because of different views on immigration. He is so delusional. When asked about his comments on Mexico he said he didn’t say Mexico! Um….can we go to the tape? #Crazytown!

    • Omar Ford says:

      lolol, you won the INTERNET!!! lol love it…

    • Bob says:

      Because he has an opinion that differs from yours they should send him on his way????
      All the model Mexican citizens illegally pouring in gives you a warm fuzzy feeling? Everyone who came across the border without a visa is a criminal. You can’t see that?

      • Temperance says:

        For a great many reasons, personal, intellectual, moral, rational, sane… why would anyone want to associate with such a person?

  2. Rebecca says:

    Donald Trump is a clown. Just saw a CNN video where he’s talking about how he’s for traditional marriage, CNN hosts asks “so what’s traditional about being married 3 times?”

    • maggie says:

      He also cheated on his first two wives, making his stand for “traditional” marriage all that more hypocritical.

      • Carol says:

        Since when do gay men want a monogamous relationship? How do you think aids ran like wildfire throughout their community? Only the aged and/or sick gay men want marriage and that’s because they are looking for a nurse or a purse. Lesbians are probably sincere in desiring to marry their partner and stay in a monogamous relationship.

        • Angela says:

          Oh, my god. Stop. Stop with the ignorance and stupidity. It is painful.

          • Carol says:

            And you are probably a millennial Angela and given a trophy for losing. I shudder to think people like you may be in a position of authority one day. I’ll never vote for any of you for anything. It’s bad enough that some of you became teachers and are polluting the minds of future generations.

          • Angela says:

            Well, I’m 30, so I’m not quite sure what group that leaves me in. But since it has zero relevance to the topic at hand, I don’t really care.
            As for the rest of your post, looks like the feeling is mutual.

          • joel f says:

            Go Angela Go!!

        • rebecca says:

          You must be writing this from church Carol.

        • baddog says:

          Hey Carol – lets just replace your ignorant stereotypical blather with things you might relate to from YOUR world…”Since when do idiotic women want a monogamous relationship? How do you think teen pregnancy ran like wildfire throughout their community? Only the religious zealots and/or failed high school cheerleaders want marriage and that’s because they are looking for a nurse or a purse. (Hey – didn’t have a change that at all!). Rednecks are probably sincere in desiring to marry their cousins and stay in a monogamous relationship.”….how’s that sit with you, as its about a true as your statement was!

        • Mary says:

          You are a idiot. I know several gay men who have been in a monogamous relationship longer than what Trump marriages have lasted, so maybe you should not make statements that are clearly delusional. Unfortunately since this is a free country, people like you are allowed to vote, but my God thank goodness the sane intelligent ones override your vote. There is no hope for people like you and Trump.

        • Bobby says:

          You’re a lunatic Carol.

        • bern says:

          Carol – you wrote one of the worst comments I have ever had the misfortune to read on a thread – You don’t know what you are talking about. I have many gay friends who are married or want to be married – who don’t fall under your nasty, ignorant categories of the sick and aged – They are good, decent, responsible people – qualities you would probably not recognize because it’s not in you. I feel sorry for you.

        • You’re an expert on gay men? You must be gay. Thanks for spreading the AIDS.

      • Bob says:

        Right. Because if you’ve gotten divorced you should have no opinion on traditional marriage. This coming days after the pope just said divorce is sometimes necessary. I hope you don’t ever get divorced or you’ll have no say in it either huh?

    • Angela says:

      Always the way, isn’t it? I will never understand why people who’ve been married multiple times or have had affairs think they can then turn around and judge other people for not preserving the “traditional sanctity” of marriage. They need to just shut up already and worry about their own relationships.
      Surprising news with NBC here, but they have good reason not to work with the guy anymore. Now if only the country at large could fire him…

    • A.M says:

      For a businessman, he’s very foolish …he’s burning all his bridges when clearly he’s not going to win the Presidential election. I’m not even American but I know that for sure.

    • Bob says:

      You watch CNN? Who’s the clown now.

  3. Chris says:

    This almost makes up up for NBC for cancelling Hannibal.

    • Geo says:

      Maybe this is an opportunity for Hannibal to come back: 1) a slot just opened up on NBC’s schedule; 2) the fourth season of Hannibal could consist of various d-grade celebrities competing, with Hannibal eating one of them per week. Instead of “You’re Fired!” it could be “You’re Dinner!”

  4. wrstlgirl says:

    ooooooooo :-) I ignore this man for the most part so I have no idea what he said. I’ll have to google, lol.

    • “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” – Donald Trump, professional idiot.

      • PKYINK says:

        So you know for a fact what he says isn’t true. Are you hanging out down at the borders? Do you work at one of the detention centers? I don’t like Trump either but there’s no doubt that a good percentage (I’m going to say 1/4 but there are different statistics and I don’t feel like doing research for a comment on tvline) of those making it over the borders have been convicted of crimes in Mexico and the ones who aren’t are still committing a crime by crossing the border illegally.

        It sucks. I have nothing against Mexicans and I really hope they can fix there country (just like we need to fix ours) but we have to enforce our borders. Everyone else does. Try going around Europe w/out a passport. Canada even. I’m pretty sure I can never go to Canada, actually. That’s unfair, right? Should I just cross the border?

        Like I said, I don’t like the guy but it’s pretty stupid to deny there’s any truth in his statement. Pretty soon all the jobs we say Americans don’t want are going to go away for good. Lost to technology. What happens then?

        • jm says:

          I dont usually reply to nonsense but sometimes, i need to speak up. So all these youngster from USA (ages from 18 till 21) come here to Europe with one objective. Get DRUNK! and if they come to Pamplona, they only objective is get killed by a bull. See this non-sense. Prejudices are bad.
          What irks me the most is that Donald Trump, Che Guevara and me share the same birthday

        • Kosha, Slezak's Sister says:

          Actually, you can cross into Canada with out a passport and pretty easily. It’s coming back into the states that you need a passport and it’s more difficult, even for a citizen of the US.

          • JBC says:

            This is not true. You need a passport or enhanced license to cross the border into Canada.

  5. Drew says:

    Were his comments about immigrants or illegal immigrants? It’s hard to find a straight news story with his direct quotes in context.

    Don’t get me wrong. The man is nuts and I wouldn’t vote for him. I’m just curious. “Immigration” is an entirely different issue than “illegal immigration”.

    • Patrick says:

      His clear implication was about illegal immigrants, but the real problem was that he implied pretty unsavory things about all Latinos, while couching it as bashing immigrants.

      • Drew says:

        I’d have to see his comments before I can have an opinion on them. Generally speaking though, illegal immigration is a problem. There are a lot of very bad people who come across the border and do a lot of very bad things once they get here. I’ve seen people demonized for saying that the Mexican border is a problem for our country, but it’s just a fact. It’s got nothing to do with the color of anyone’s skin, it’s just the situation with that border. It doesn’t help that the Border Patrol isn’t even allowed to do its job anymore.

        • dman6015 says:

          “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” He added, “They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” ~ Donald Trump, June 16, 2015

        • Andrea says:

          Here is a link to the portion of his campaign speech in which he made the aforementioned comments:

          “When Mexico sends its people [to the United States] they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with [sic] us. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime; their rapists. And some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they tell me what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably, probably from the Middle East. But we don’t know, because we have no protection and we have no competence. We don’t know what’s happening and it’s gotta stop, and it’s gotta stop fast.”

          He blatantly accused an entire continent of sending only its worst people, with a few decent ones slipping through as well, to the United States illegally. He also accused the same of a number of countries in the Middle East. Drug smugglers/dealers/cartels, rapists and other criminals, that is what he thinks of illegal immigrants.

          • Drew says:

            Well, if we are talking about illegal immigrants, he is right. The illegal immigration issue is a major problem. I’ve known Border Patrol agents. I know the stories that come directly from them about the people who are stopped, and I know how limited they are in what they are allowed to do to stop those criminals right now.

            This is why we have a system for legal immigration. People can become citizens if they put in the effort and aren’t criminals. I think he was probably speaking about illegal immigration, so I’m not outraged. But he spoke poorly.

          • Ryan says:

            Drew you are correct in that illegal immigration is a HUGE problem, but the illegal immigrants by and large right now are children that are being sent from latin america. That was what was all over the news last year, and where my family lives, it’s all they’re getting. They aren’t getting rapists and drug dealers, they’re getting toddlers and teenagers. You can say illegal immigration is a problem without saying that the character of the people who are coming are also an issue. Often times they are fleeing in the middle of the night to escape horrific conditions (like Honduras, which has the highest murder rate in South America and one of the highest in the world) not to destroy the US.

    • jesse says:

      There are illegal immigrants here in the US from all over the world including Europeans (White People) but he dirrected his comment specifically on the Mexicans. If you are pro Trump in this, ask yourself the following question (of course if you consider yourself a Christian) what would Jesus Christ think about Trumps comments?

  6. Boiler says:

    Finally his mouth got him in trouble. Never should have been on this long

  7. Brandy says:

    GOOD. It’s not like this is the first time it’s happened.

  8. LT says:

    I would have more respect for NBC had that not been in business with this clown in the first place.

  9. josh says:

    And if he was running as a Dem NBC would do everything they could to promote hm

    • Drew says:

      If he were running as a dem, the comments would have disappeared as soon as they left his mouth. But any serious candidate should know that by now, right?

    • BB says:

      I really can’t stand Donald Trump and never watch anything involving him. But NBC-Universal is a very left-leaning organization that gives second chances to people like Brian Williams. So yes, if Trump were a Dem he’d still be on NBC with excuses made or statements ignored. Having said that, I am surprised it took them this long. There is nothing funny about Donald Trump. A total clown and a disgrace to the political process.

      • HAP says:

        Comcast is anything but left-leaning.

      • Did you just equate Williams and Trump? Williams let his talk show appearances and ego get the best of him, managing to treat stories he’s embellished as fact, and when rightfully called out on it is taking his punishment with all humility. Trump sues people for reporting facts about him and doesn’t just double down on the BS, he quadruples it. He continued to push the birther thing longer than pretty much anyone else.

    • Patrick says:

      A Democrat, or liberal (aka someone with some sort of measurable intelligence), WOULD NEVER HAVE MADE SUCH A HATEFUL, RACIST, AND STUPID COMMENT.
      .
      Conservatives act like the big bad liberal media hide stupid things that liberals say. The liberals don’t say stupid stuff like this in the first place. There is nothing to hide.

      • Whatevah says:

        Exactly!

      • Brooke says:

        LOL, right? Take a look at everything that has come out of the mouths of Republican politicians in the last few years and then show me where the Democrats have a comparable issue in putting their foot in their mouth time and again.

      • Lizo says:

        Yes thank you!

      • Mike says:

        So what Trump said was wrong, but implying that anyone who identifies as a conservative is a bigoted moron is cool? Got it.

      • Lucifer says:

        I don’t consider myself a liberal or a conservative, but the fact that you not only think liberals are perfect, but more intelligent for being so says a great deal. The fact is democrats/liberals are just as bad, but they hide behind the notion that they are “all inclusive” and “tolerant.” But they rely on fear-mongering for the most part, something even President Obama does. And when liberals/democrats make mistakes, they do get passes. Look at how the media is pretty much ignoring the fact that Hillary Clinton has been specifically picking journalists and people for her staged appearances.
        .
        And you say that a liberal/democrat would never say something so hateful, but… Alec Baldwin uses homophobic slurs frequently. Lena Dunham compared Jewish men to dogs (a historically anti semitic action). Tracy Morgan joked he would kill his son if he turned out to be gay. Most female comedians, who also happen to be liberal feminists like Sarah Silverman say offensive rape jokes. Hillary Clinton takes money from countries that don’t offer women the most basic rights. Bill Clinton has been accused of rape by several women who were quickly silenced. Nicki Minaj used Nazi symbolism to portray herself as a Nazi of rap music. Most people hate Woody Allen and call him a pedo, but that doesn’t stop liberals like Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix, and Kristen Stewart from working with him. Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) portrayed a 13 year old girl who was given alcohol and raped by an adult woman as “good rape.” Liberal extremists like Bill Ayers, Al Sharpton, Andrea Dworkin, Spike Lee, Ward Churchill, and Valerie Solanas apparently never existed. President Obama shamed black men on father’s day (a few years ago), saying they need to be more reliable. Obama has also said violence is part of black culture, which doesn’t sound much different than a racist saying “blacks are naturally violent.” Joe Biden has a laundry list of racially insensitive comments and remarks, very little outcry over them. The woman who opened the first abortion clinics in the U.S. was a eugenicist and a white supremacist who purposefully placed clinics in poor black neighborhoods. Suffragettes like Susan B. Anthony were endorsed by the KKK (which was created by Democrats) because they called for the lynching of black men. I should add context to the last example: You see, black men who had money were about to be given the right to vote and this was before all women were legally allowed to vote. Those rich, white feminists actually suggested their bodies and rights would be dominated by black men if they got the vote before them. Pretty twisted, not much has changed, still fear-mongering.

        • grrrugh says:

          All of the things that you state which are actually facts ( no time to fact check all, but I’ll acknowledge at least songs of these are true) were reported in mainstream media. The media doesn’t give liberals ( which Hillary Clinton is NOT, btw) a pass at all. Fox news and Rush and their ilk ust keep telling their viewers that lie and ppl believe.

          • Lucifer says:

            I said liberals/democrats, Hillary is a democrat. Of course some form of ‘the media’ (which consists of several major news outlets, cable news, and hundreds of websites/blogs/vlogs) has reported on the examples I gave, but they are usually not treated as seriously or covered by traditionally liberal/left-leaning outlets. And hey, it’s not all the media’s fault, the public doesn’t seem to care as much when a liberal/democrat does something equally as bad as a conservative/republican. Liberals/democrats also don’t care about historical facts that make them look bad either, but make sure to focus on ones that make others look bad.
            .
            And a perfect example would be when Indiana democratic state rep. Vanessa Summers accused an 18 month old child of racism. Aside from a few neutral and mainly conservative new outlets, the majority of the media ignored it. Meanwhile, Marco Rubio paying off his student loans with his own money gets front page news and portrayed as bad.

          • I feel like conservatives believe in some crazy media conspiracy that only affects conservatives. But the media is the media. They’re sensationalist and will make news out of anything that will be perceived as negative, regardless of the political leanings of whomever is responsible. It just so happens that “modern” conservative views have a tendency to be racist, homophobic, classist, elitist, the list goes on. Meanwhile, on Fox News, they just mislead and outright lie. They will call the president a terrorist on TV. And people eat it up because it’s what they want to believe and they won’t even bother with checking facts or listening to those who see an obvious hypocrisy on a -daily- basis.

          • Lucifer says:

            @TigerNightmare, I guess you ignored all of my above examples, huh? The media does pick and choose what they want to cover. Because the majority of it leans left, they are obviously going to go in for the kill when it comes to covering anything a conservative/republican has done or said, even silly things like Rubio’s student loans. When it comes to democrats/liberals who do anything, they get a pass. Yeah, there are cases where a big deal will be made like how feminists attacked liberal-feminist Joss Whedon and scared him off twitter because of Avengers 2. But for the most part, the media is not going to be so hard if the person is a liberal and did not do or say something absolutely horrible. Especially since most liberals will disguise their hatred behind talking about some form of equality, usually gender or race. Then again, even after admitting to sexually and psychologically abusing and conditioning her little sister for 10 years (and seeing no issue with it) Lena Dunham was defended by most media outlets and even went on Ellen DeGeneres. So yeah, must be a “crazy conspiracy” that the mainstream media chooses who to go after based on politics and ideology.
            .
            I love how you describe conservatives because you could pretty much say the same for liberal-minded people of today, while adding things like pro-censorship, anti-free speech, and communists. It’s why I really don’t like identifying as a liberal and would rather focus on actual issues instead of going crazy over labels.
            .
            Pretty much everything you said about Fox News and its viewers can be attributed to all media outlets and liberals. I mean, mainstream media tends to cover two major social issue topics: racism towards blacks and sexism towards women. Even when the cases have nothing to do with either subject, they twist the story to fit that narrative because they know it sells. For example, did you hear about the two mass shootings shortly after the Charleston shooting? If so, was it covered by at least 2 major new outlets and go viral on social media? If the answer is “no” it’s because the shooters where black and the victims were black. Therefore, the media can’t sell it as a case of racism, so they pretty much ignore it as a major story to cover. It’s also why media outlets have resorted to creating stories, like the Rolling Stone rape case which was completely fake. Yet the author of the article still has her job. They don’t even bother doing actual journalism anymore, because then they wouldn’t be able to portray the story the way they like.
            .
            And you want to talk about misleading and outright lying? I once saw MSNBC try to claim a black man with a holstered rifle at a pro-gun rally was a “white supremacist trying to assassinate the president” among other things. ABC has been caught deleting comments with sources (debunking their claims) or just differing opinions of extremely bias stories they published online. Rachel Maddow has been caught editing footage to make it look like police were being attacked by protesters when it was the opposite. Not to mention most of the new outlets which lean left usually try and portray feelings and opinions as facts or will even skew stats. And then you have sites like mic.com, huffpost, buzzfeed and even tumblr blogs which churn out blatant lies that can be debunked with a simple google search. But people just lap it up because it’s what they want to hear. They want to believe American women and racial minorities are oppressed in a patriarchal white supremacy by evil, white, Christian men.
            .
            The majority of what I see people upset at Fox News over is their opinions, which obviously lean right. But guess what? Opinions are not facts and you do not have to agree with them. Most of what I see them use as facts are from the FBI or CDC, so unless they are spinning them in their favor, I don’t see how they could be 100% lying about statistics and such. I have seen a few things they have portrayed wrong or were not being completely honest, but I also don’t watch them that much so I can’t say. And seriously? When did Fox News call the president a terrorist?

      • bern says:

        I was going to say this so thanks for covering it.

    • maggie says:

      If Trump were running as a Democrat and made those comments, the Democratic party would have disavowed him immediately. And NBC would not have waited so long to dump him, as Democrats would have inundated the network with calls to cancel their business deals with Trump.

    • Mary says:

      Kind of like what fox did with the Duggars?

  10. A fan of TV says:

    Amazing!!! Does this mean ‘washed up celebs looking for work on TV’ is cancelled too? America is just on an epic roll lately!

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      “Celebrity Apprentice, which is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and was renewed in February for a 15th season, will continue at the network.”

      • Dorjean says:

        Wow Matt. I was wondering if they could pull the plug after it was renewed. I’m glad it will continue. I love to laugh at the man when he’s being pompous and unaware.

      • Erin B says:

        Now they need to get former winner Bret Michaels to host it. Maybe he can try to find love….again.

  11. BrightLight says:

    This could be the best thing to come out of this presidential campaign.

  12. Me says:

    And in a month when he is no longer running for president because it is a bad business move, all will be forgiven. I’m am surprised they let go of the beauty contests. I mean where are we going to go to see women objectified on their looks? Oh wait reality TV is still going strong….

  13. Julia says:

    Love this….intolerance and discrimination should not be welcome on any network.

  14. And yet people will still vote for him…

    • maggie says:

      People that he’s fooled into thinking he’s a self-made man, and knows how to create jobs and wealth. They don’t realize that he inherited his business and wealth, and has filed bankruptcy for a number of business ventures.

    • Mary says:

      Unfortunately that is true because this is America and people are free to vote even if the candidate is a moron. However; the majority of America does have some intelligence and he won’t win the nomination. Trump knows that, he just likes to be center of attention.

  15. Missy Kelly says:

    I was thinking of giving up hope that the world could be a better place and voila, corporate america gives me that hope. There’s two words that I didn’t think could make it so

  16. Jack Charles says:

    I suppose freedom of speech is not important anymore. Libtards have taken over.

    • Daniel says:

      There’s freedom of speech and freedom to fire people that do not follow company’s policies.

    • The Grinch says:

      Is anybody from the government showing up at Trump’s penthouse to arrest him? He can say whatever he wants. If I say stupid things that make my company look bad, they can dump me. Freedom of speech has nothing to do with it. Who’s a ‘tard?

    • Brigid says:

      Why don’t Americans know what freedom of speech means? You can say whatever you want and not get arrested, doesn’t mean you won’t suffer consequences from your employer because of your big mouth. Somebody is a Big Dummy!

    • maggie says:

      Freedom of Speech means the government can’t prevent you from speaking your mind. It does not exempt you from consequences for what you say, such as being fired because your employer doesn’t want to be linked to what you said. Most companies have codes of conduct for employees.

      • Angela says:

        Thank you. People really need to go back and reread what the Constitution actually says. And yes, people also need to understand that saying what you want also means you run the risk of people reacting to and commenting on your words, sometimes negatively. If people don’t like that, then maybe they should learn to choose their words more carefully.

    • Dys says:

      I suppose that it’s about time that you learn what freedom of speech means Jack.

    • Brooke says:

      Freedom of speech =/= freedom to say whatever you want without your employer deciding they no longer want to employ you.

    • How do I know when someone is an idiot and can’t thing for themselves? When they say something along the lines of “What about free speech?” when someone gets in fired for saying something offensive. Second indicator, some kind of play on words insult or either political party. You’ve hit both right on the head, congratulations.

  17. I firmly believe that Trump has developed a cunning plan to make a fortune in real estate by buying large amounts of barren desert land and then diverting a nuclear missile test flight to the San Andreas Fault. It will sink California and leave Trump’s desert as the new West Coast of the United States, greatly increasing its value.

    We finally get a candidate that speaks the truth and you want to fire him? Maybe I’ll fire YOU and remove every program from my dvr that’s nbc. We need more people like Donald Trump. You owe him an apology, big time!!!

    • Mary says:

      Hopefully you are joking? This guy is a loud mouth man who seeks attention. Maybe he should think before he speaks. He is a moron, plain and simple. I find it hard to take him seriously or respect the man. One who has filed bankruptcy three times and still makes money off of it, think there is something wrong with the system. I wouldn’t trust him with making sound rash decisions. No way will he get the nomination, and hopefully he by putting his foot in his mouth once again, when this is over he will be gone.

    • maggie says:

      Carol, are you one of the paid supporters that Trump hired?

    • Angela says:

      …you’re kidding, right?

  19. Nitemar says:

    Everything that comes out of his loud mouth is caca, now Trump will have to smell and eat it too.

  20. Carol says:

    Anyone that lives in CA, AZ or TX knows that what Trump said is true. What the heck is wrong with you NBC?

  21. AngelWasHere says:

    All I have to say ahahahahaha!!!!! Finally!!!! 😂😁

    • AngelWasHere says:

      *is
      Anyway celeb apprentice might actually be a watchable train wreck again if they don’t put his kids in his place.

  22. Bruce Padgett says:

    As someone who saw every episode of The Apprentice (I even own the first season DVD), my enthusiasm for the program sank like a stone the moment Trump uttered those ignorant remarks. Why NBC took this long to subsequently fire him is a mystery frankly, but at least they finally did the right thing. The man embarrassed not only himself, but the entire Republican party. I can’t wait to see how FoxNews spins this.

    • John NYC says:

      They had their lawyers examine every word of their contract to make sure Trump was ejectable without his having any come back.

  23. Dorjean says:

    Too bad The Donald doesn’t think before he speaks. I’ll miss Celebrity Apprentice, I mainly watch it for the laughs, his pomposity, and his hair. It’s such fun seeing how unbelievably vain he is and how unaware he is of what people really feel about him.

  24. dan says:

    So is The Donald going to sue NBC for not carrying the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants just like he threatened to sue Univision? I think he said something like “iron clad contract” in terms of filing a lawsuit against Univision. Is he going to ban NBC brass from his golf courses just like he banned the Univision management? I’m sure the NBC lawyers are ready for whatever The Donald throws at them.

  25. Carol says:

    You libs don’t know what you’re talking about. What a shame ill informed morons are ruining the country.

    • Angela says:

      Trump is not someone who deserves defending. The guy’s a pompous, obnoxious creep. I would not take his word on anything. You don’t have to be a liberal to know he’s a total moron.

    • Yes, ill informed morons like Donald Trump ARE ruining the country.

      • Carol says:

        If you live in So CA, AZ, NV and TX then we know that Trump is right on the money. The rest of you just don’t get it and I guess never will but do not denigrate Trump for he does know what the rest of us have seen first hand.

        • John NYC says:

          First hand from his Manhattan multimillion dollar penthouse tower?

          Good one.

        • Angela says:

          Trump’s “concerns” for the people along the border are nothing more than hot air. The only thing the guy truly cares about is money. Quit pretending otherwise.
          Also, I know people who live in those parts of the country who would strongly disagree with Trump’s statements and laugh at his ignorance. So explain that.

        • You mean eternally blue California, where San Francisco legalized gay marriage and set off a chain of events and court battles that culminated in a total of 37 states where it was legal before the Supreme Court intervened? California is red in rural and wealthy areas and blue in all major metropolitan areas, just like it is everywhere, even in Texas. But no, this isn’t about where you’re from or what you think living there automatically indoctrinates you. If you see a man who looks Hispanic and instead of thinking stranger with any possible background, maybe he’s a Oregon-born, churchgoing father of 2 girls that volunteers at a soup kitchen and manages a local coffee house for a living. If you see a stranger and you immediately think rapist, drug dealer, criminal, that doesn’t make you witness to these crimes “first hand”. It makes you a racist. It makes you Dylann Roof. Cesar Chavez was against illegal immigration himself, but not out of fear and racism like you, but because undocumented workers are severely exploited with minimal pay and terrible working conditions. If you want to get rid of illegal immigration, then start policing the cheap rich people that hire them in the first place. Treat them like sex traffickers.

          YOu are obviously uneducated. I pity you

    • Melora says:

      Got news for you. The majority of the American people will NEVER support a Republican President. You people are the American Taliban

        • Melora says:

          The Republican party is NOT the same party it used to be. It was hijacked by right wing bigotted Christan theocrats….THE AMERICAN TALIBAN

  26. Trump for president says:

    Im voting for Trump..thank you for being honest Trump

  27. Pat says:

    He is forever threatening lawsuits. What a pompous a-s. Sorry about that tv line about that last word even though I left out one of the letters, but I cannot hold my tongue when it comes to this Neanderthal. I am glad that NBC has finally come to its sense by giving him the boot!!!!

  28. Francisco Chavez says:

    Thank You NBC what took you so long! Donald Trump opened his mouth and became El Trompa Sucia !

  29. Probably should have dropped it anyhow, but hey, nice to have a recent reason as an excuse.

  30. The Truth says:

    Finally! I just wished he open his big mouth sooner so we can get rid of this cancer from the airwaves a lot soon

  31. abby says:

    i’m confused though. sounds like they will still air celebrity apprentice?

  32. Carol says:

    The majority of Americans find Trump refreshing. “Americans” being the operative word. Of course he won’t win. He won’t even win the GOP nomination and we have all the bleeding heart liberals to thank for that. He does however speak the subtext while all the other candidates are too chicken to do the same. Too scary to put him in the WH even for me at this point with his latest rant about bombing the oil fields in Iraq. He’s toast.

  33. Bob says:

    I guess I won’t be watching any NBC commercials again. I’m so done with NBC and will never, never buy anything advertised on that network. I hope they’re happy with their non tolerant issues.

  34. Bob says:

    I just tried to post a comment and was told it was a duplicate. This site will not post a negative comment about NBC’s decision. I won’t buy anything advertised on NBC or watch it until they bring back Trump. Intolerance has no place in America and Mr. Trump, just like the rest of the left wing in this country has a right to be heard and say what he wants.

  35. olet45@Yahoo says:

    This is a rich man feels he can say whatever because his bottom line is he is a racist and don’t care if blks and brown live or die just clean his toilets
    Oletha

  36. Jude says:

    I believe Trump is standing up for what he believes. It is horrific when people would rather be PC than to recognize our rights are being taken away. If we continue to allow the government to provide and to dictate right and wrong than they will take it all. Stand up and speak your mind, don’t just accept what other people say.

  37. Ryan says:

    The Donald is neither politically correct or a bleeding heart.. Since those two traits are very
    unpopular, that’s likely the reason he is not….

  38. Chimes says:

    I NEVER watch NBC. CBS This morning with Charlie Rose, Nora and Gayle are refreshing, informative, fun without being a circus. My remote control skips over NBC. Looking forward to CBS late show in September. Donald Trump is a winner.
