E-freakin’-gads! What a whole lotta hoopla to jump through just to give a quarter mill to his charity! Once again Donald Trump has staged a whole season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ around a supposed competition of supposed celebrities!
First, he signed on icon (as in, “I con people into thinking I’m a legend”) Joan Rivers as the contestant for his charity, then acted like a total pussy in her presence throughout the season. What’s worse, is she demanded her daughter Melissa take another ride on her thinly-worn coattails to join the show’s cast, and had Trump wussing out to her as well.
Despite Joan Rivers’ acting like a raving lunatic, comparing competitor Annie Duke to Hitler, storming off the show when Melissa was fired and despite 50+ years in show business, not being able to raise a fraction of the coin or celebrities Duke brought in, Trump declared her a ‘good role model’ (uhh, has he met her diva daughter, Melissa???) and declared her “hired.”
While poker champ Duke was hands down the season’s winner, was Trump trying to throw in a wild card on what seemed like a sure bet? He didn’t call Joan out on her behaviour or lies, but was very critical of Annie and surprisingly, downplayed her fundraising abilities. What a sell out from a guy who is all about money!
On last night’s season finale Trump admitted that a good friend of his is involved in the charity chosen by last season’s winner, Piers Morgan. I’m betting Trump also has a close friend (besides Joan Rivers) who is closely involved with God’s Love We Deliver.
I think it’s way more personal than Trump would care to admit.
