Trump to continue as producer of ‘Apprentice’


Not only will President Pussygrabber be presiding over the nation.

He’s also continue as the top producer of the television shows that brought into the living rooms of millions of Americans every week.

Oh, but he’ll not longer be hosting.

That job goes to another guy who left show biz for politics.

From the McClatchy Washington Bureau:

In keeping with his unorthodox style, Donald Trump will be the first U.S. president in a lot of ways.

He’ll be the first commander-in-chief to be a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. He’ll be the first president with his own line of vodka. And, according to media reports on Thursday, he’ll be the first president to executive produce a reality TV show while in office.

Variety broke the news that Trump, who rose to fame thanks in part to his stints on the reality TV shows “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice,” will continue to serve as executive producer of “The New Celebrity Apprentice” when it comes back on NBC this January after a two-year hiatus.

The new iteration of the show, which will be hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is just the latest in a series of business ventures Trump is involved in that has raised questions about potential conflicts of interest when he takes office.

As executive producer, Trump will almost certainly not be involved in the day-to-day operations of the show, but his name will appear second in the credits, per Variety, after Mark Burnett, who helped create “The Apprentice.” And as executive producer, he will receive an undisclosed fee, which Variety reports is likely to be at least $10,000 per episode, with the show scheduled for an initial eight episodes after the new year.

Words fail us.
