The Celebrity Apprentice will not outwit, outplay and outlast Donald Trump’s kitsch legacy. According to a new report, NBC short-listed basketball star Magic Johnson and comedian George Lopez to take over Donald Trump’s you’re-fired-hosting-role on the iconic reality television show. If you’ve been living under Mick Jagger for the past month, you might not know about Trump’s nasty-nasty, racist-racist speech.
Trump was supposedly bashed Latin Americans (he called them rapists and murderers and whatnot) when he announced that he, The Donald Trump, will apply for the biggest job of ‘em all: The President of The United States of America. The speech caused the biggest entertainment industry exodus in recent memory. Hundreds of celebrities turned against Trumpy Dumpty – they burned him at the Twitter stake and left him to die in the manicured streets of Nowhere-land.
Now here’s the clincher: Donald Trump is The Celebrity Apprentice. The show will not, I repeat, will not survive without its host. Once the host dies, the virus dies. Even if NBC replaces him with Magic or Lopez, neither the show nor the network will survive the onslaught of die-hard Celebrity Apprentice fans. It’s akin to pulling the proverbial plug and replacing it with a ‘Made In China’ second-hand ‘Appell’ charger.
TMZ reports, “Lopez says he hasn’t been contacted, but we’re told all the discussions so far have been internal. Magic seems to be a gold standard for what NBC is looking for. No word on whether he’d be interested.”
No word on whether Trump ate his toupee for breakfast. I ate a toupee once. It happened after I got fired from my job as a cashier at a candy store in the mall. I replaced the Skittles with magical M&M’s.
Never, ever replace the Skittles.
