Trump wants to do a reality T.V. show about the White House when he leaves - keeps pitching it to NBC: report
President Donald Trump apparently misses the days when he used to host reality television.
According to a report from The Daily Beast, Trump has confided to people close to him that he misses hosting 'The Apprentice' and 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' shows that he did for NBC and used to brag were number one in the ratings.
He now wants to do a new show, and has been pitching it to ‘Apprentice’ creator Mark Burnett. He sounds interested in the proposal.
“One of the ideas kicked around by Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of the Trump-branded ‘Apprentice,’ tentatively titled ‘The Apprentice: White House,’ and to produce it shortly after the president leaves office. This time, however, the TV program would be explicitly politics-themed and take full advantage of Trump’s status as a former president of the United States and a newfound Republican kingmaker.”
According to one of the sources, “There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about ‘The Apprentice: White House.’ It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing,” while another one adds, “They actually talked about an ‘Apprentice: White House’ … as far as I know, the discussion did not go far.”
This is good news. No, not the show, but that Trump is already thinking about what he's going to be doing after he leaves office. It sounds like he is already making plans in case he loses in the 2020 presidential election.
In fact, Trump was tweeting about his glory days just a few months ago.
"So funny to watch Little Donny Deutsch on TV with his own failing show. When I did The Apprentice, Donny would call me (along with Erin Burnett & others) and BEG to be on that VERY successful show. He had the TV “bug” & I would let him come on though he (& Erin) had very little."
We think he should just drop this presidential thing all together and go back to doing what he does best: crappy T.V.
