The world is changing and becoming a strange beast. Next year the President of the United States will ALSO be a producer of a reality TV show. Let that sink in.
That’s right, Donald Trump is expected to stay on as executive producer on the Celebrity Apprentice and remain on the payroll of the NBC show.
The news was confirmed to Entertainment Weekly by producer MGM, who revealed that the president-elect will keep his title on the show, as Arnold Schwarzenegger steps in to host the competition.
“Mr. Trump has a big stake in the show and conceived of it with [executive producer] Mark Burnett …Additional details regarding his business interests will be shared December 15,” Trump’s press secretary Hope Hicks told Politico.
While Trump hosted the reality show for 14 seasons, is it not a bit fucking odd that he would stay on as a producer in any capacity? Considering he’s due to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the US on 20 January, 2017.
2016, YOU’RE OFFICIALLY COOKED.
