One thing that Donald Trump used to be known for was that he was the host of The Celebrity Apprentice. When his political career started, it was revealed that Donald would not be the host for the next season. Now it turns out that Donald Trump won’t be coming back to the show at all. E! shared that Donald Trump won’t even be welcome back to the show at all according to NBC. Trump is going to have to find something else to fill his time if he doesn’t become President. If he wins President, Donald will be busy for a while, and it won’t be an issue for him anyway.
This news all came out when NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt talked to reporters following his executive session at the network’s TCA Summer Press Day 2016. He said, “I have no idea if he has a future in television, but he would never be back on The Celebrity Apprentice, if that’s the question. As long as I’m here.” It sounds like the only way that Trump could come back was if for some reason Greenblatt didn’t work there anymore. He didn’t go on to explain the reason that he doesn’t want Trump on the show, but it was obvious that he isn’t a fan. You can guess that he probably won’t be voting for him in the upcoming election either.
Greenblatt did admit that Trump might be on NBC because of different political things that air there. When it comes to other reality show opportunities in the future, he just wasn’t sure how that would all end up playing out. There is no way that he can keep Donald Trump from being on their channel at all. It just doesn’t look like they have any plans to actually hire him for a job.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke didn’t say that Trump couldn’t ever come back, but she did share her own thoughts on it. She said, “I have no idea. I have no idea what our response would be. I think with him we’re taking one sort of day at a time and seeing where he ends up and sort of watching this unfold like all of you. We’re not involved in his life, and we’ll evaluate those things as they come up in the future.” It sounds like she has pretty much forgotten about Donald Trump and moved on.
Sometimes I think I'm watching SNL, but then I realize this whole Trump thing is real life.... https://t.co/qiqB46FC2t— FionaForbes (@FionaForbes) August 2, 2016
The Celebrity Apprentice just won’t be the same without Donald Trump there. He has been the host for so long and changing things up just doesn’t always work. The Celebrity Apprentice is known for waiting a long time between seasons anyway. Trump did the show for 14 seasons total, but now when it returns in January, it will be hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger. This 15th season will be airing on NBC starting in January, but an exact date hasn’t been revealed for the premiere.
CNN shared that Donald Trump has someone else that isn’t a big fan of him either. Obama actually spoke out and said that he doesn’t feel like Donald Trump is fit to be President at all. Here is what Obama had to say about it.
“The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president. He keeps on proving it.”
Are you shocked to hear that The Celebrity Apprentice isn’t allowing Donald Trump to return? Do you think that they should want him back again? The show just won’t be the same without Donald Trump, so it will be interesting to see if the show will continue after this season.
