NBC Gives Trump The Axe

It’s been an extremely busy few weeks for the Donald, who announced he was running for President in the most egotistical way ever and then proceeded to muck up absolutely everything he has his fingers in. Now NBC has told Trump that he’s fired. That’s right, say bye bye to Miss USA and Miss Universe. They join Univision in boycotting Trump’s pageants and do so after receiving over 200,000 signature on a petition to drop him from the network.


The Celebrity Apprentice, however, will go on. It should be noted that Trump left the show prior to announcing his Presidential bid. Losing NBC will cost Trump millions in campaign funds, but since he’s “really rich” we figure he’l be just fine in that department. In true Trump fashion he told NBC he sticks by his comments.

“I told NBC I could not change my stance,” Trump said. “The fact is that my stance on immigration is correct.” He then followed it up with this gem. “They will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be,” He also said on live TV that he has “no respect for Iraq” among other things. This can only get more entertaining.
