When Trump hosted “The Apprentice”, he said that it was the most successful show ever, and that everyone at NBC thought he was the greatest.
It appears that isn’t the case.
NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, whose division produced Trump’s Apprentice series since before Greenblatt joined in 2011, has taken to Facebook to vent about the former reality-TV star and current Republican presidential nominee. Last year, NBC severed ties with the real-estate mogul in large part over his Mexican-rapists comments.
Greenbelt said, “The sad state of affairs thanks to a pompous businessman turned reality-TV star (whose show consistently ran LAST in its time period, by the way) who thinks speaking his mind is refreshing. It’s actually corrosive and toxic because his ‘mind’ is so demented; and his effect will unfortunately linger long after he’s been told to get off the stage.”
Remember…Trump always says that The Apprentice was NBC’s top show, and always won its time spot and got the best ratings.
Greenblatt’s Facebook post was a personal response to a recent New York Times op-ed penned by Nicholas Kristof that shows how “all across America…Donald Trump is mainstreaming hate.” The column touches on bullying in schools, and recounts a moment during a high-school physics class in Forest Grove, Oregon, in which a “group of white students suddenly began jeering at their Latino classmates and chanting: ‘Build a wall! Build a wall!'” (Greenblatt, who is the first openly gay broadcast TV chairman, has long been active in pro-LGBT advocacy, as well as in anti-bullying efforts.)
So, Trump’s mind is “demented”. Need we say more?
