Trump Show Could Be In Trouble

It's no secret that Donald Trump is oddly and apparently okay with people being angry at him, and being labeled a "racist," because he doesn't seem to be slowing down with his continued character attacks on President Obama. (Now that the Birth Cert is out, Trump wants to know if he had grades good enough for Columbia and Harvard.)

Some insiders believe that this could lead to large negative effects on his TV career, short of a hosting gig on Fox or something. Why? Because celebrities are distancing from and speaking up about him, so it'll probably be hard to find contestants for Celebrity Apprentice.

Let's face it, the contestants have been kind of hard to find to begin with.

Here's what's being said:

"Attacking stars like Rosie O'Donnell or Martha Stewart is one thing, but to go after the president is taking Donald down a path that's going to do long term damage to his brand. But for guy with a show on NBC in primetime that needs celebrities to sign up in order for it to be a success, this is potential suicide."

"Every year it's been harder to find A-list stars to be part of the show. Let's face it, this season the cast includes a Real Housewife and one of Michael Jackson's sisters, when bigger stars passed. Next season his only options will be Christine O'Donnell, Glenn Beck and Ann Coulter."

Whoa! We can see that happening!

People are already starting twitter campaigns to have a boycott of this season's finale! Crazier things have happened!

It'll be inneresting to see what kind of backlash and effects will come from this, but also who will be standing behind him.

Are U standing with him??

    It has nothing to do with racism. I can't stand it when people use that card……OBAMA SUCKS AS PRESIDENT. He is a liar, he hasn't done anything, and thinks he is a celebrity. He doesn't know how to run our country!!! We need him out. I don't like TRump but he is right……so, he isn't racist. Get over yourselfs please!!! Not everything is about the color of your skin. When you screw up you screw up!!!! Get him out of office!!!!! Our country is going down!!!!!

    Look, I don't agree with 99.9% of what Trump has said, either. But I don't understand how someone who has made a habit of using publicity to antagonize others (this article specifically names Rosie O'Donnell and Martha Stewart, for example) can all of a sudden be called a racist for doing so. He has ALWAYS behaved this way. He was FAR worse to Rosie but now that the person he's aiming his efforts toward is black (and only HALF, by the way) he's suddenly a racist? I really, truly think that's absurd. How is it that's he's just a jerk if it's a white person he's attacking but it suddenly becomes racism if there's any hint of color in the other person?
    People balk at the idea that some questioned Obama's citizenship. Yes, some people are racist. But for the MAJORITY of people, it was because he had a Kenyan father, idiot relatives in Kenya who falsely reported he had been born there, and he had been raised somewhat out of the country. It just put a little doubt in people's mind. That, coupled with the fact that there was a lot of confusion and ambiguity concerning his birth certificate raised more questions. I really don't think it had to do with his skin color and throwing out the "racist card" in cases like this where it really isn't applicable is almost akin to pure name-calling. When the other side has nothing of substance with which to argue, they resort to base rhetoric like this and it's frustrating.

    donald trump is a racist bully, it is so obvious that all of this is racially motivated! I am so glad that the old dude from CBS evening news called him a racist as well. Did anyone ever question Bush, and we all know how smart he is and yet he graduated from an ivy league school. stfu and go away!! such an asshole!



  5. 5

    Trump is not attacking….he is questioning which he has every right to do. All Obama had to do was release the information when Hillary Clinton first raised the issue and it would have been over with. For whatever reason, Obama decided not to do so. Lets deal in facts not fiction. Did you have any issue when the media and others questioned Bush's academic records? If you ok with questioning one, you must be with the other as well.



  6. 6

    Re: Shine – read # 1 …. believe me its about racism anyone one that says it isn't is full of it.



  7. 7

    Trump Mr Chapter 11 Nothing but a blow-hard. Stop listening to this crazy F and he will go away and another chapter 11



  8. 8

    He can say whatever he wants, but he shouldn't be surprised (nor should his supporters) when people decide they don't want to deal with him.



  9. 9

    And people wounder why the Republican prospects for '12 for waiting to announce, hmm because any attack, any they say negatively, any thing that does not help Obama will be viewed as RACIEST! Trump is the 1st person to really attack Obama, call him raciest he does not care! Obama has been a disaster and the media covers up hi missteps



  10. 10

    Is Obama had been white, born in Hawai with an Irish father, NOBODY would have asked for his birth certificate.

    It is as simple as that.

    APEBOMA: if that is not racist, what is?

    Re: truthgal
    Let deal in facts: he did release the short form month and months ago. The short form is all you need in Hawai to get a driver's licence and so on.
    He had to as permission, from the authorities in Hawai (who usually don't accept) to release the long form.
    As I said : racist, because nobody would have cared it the guy had been white.

    Re: truthgal
    Bush lied through his teeth for 8 years.
    Remember the made up stories of the weapons of mass destruction?
    There was a surplus when he came in and left us with a deficit nobody knows how to come back from.
    Obama was left with such a huge mess, and Republicans trying extremely hard to block every progressive move he make, it's incredible he's manage to do as much as he did.

    Re: curiousred – Well said.



  18. 18

    Trump isn't just asking questions and speaking his mind. He is hate mongering and causing a feeding frenzy not on FACTS but on things
    he makes up. He never answers any questions put to him, instead
    he gets his back up and only says what he wants. He acts like he is in his
    boardroom talking down to one of his peons, instead of being interviewed.
    As long as these journalists keep handling him with kid gloves he will
    continue his attention seeking , spewing of false and unsubstanciated
    statements. Donald you said you would provide your taxes if Obama
    released his birth certificate WELL we're waiting.
    By the way for someone who wanted to see the birth certificate so badly why did you then keep refusing to look at it when it was being offered for you to examine. I think Donald has the early states of dementia.



  19. 19

    Trump is right on -Obama got into the Harvard just like most minorities - because of their skin color. PERIOD. Get over it. Own it. He's a joke of a President and needs to be booted out.



  20. 20

    I will laugh so hard if this hurts his career. He's an idiot with a big mouth and stupid hair. I just think that this whole "birther" issue is a pile of shit. You absolutely cannot run for president if you don't have the proof that you were actually born here. Sure, our government is failing miserably in many areas, but I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't slack on that little detail. Now that it has been proven that Obama is a U.S. citizen, let's attack his intelligence, because we haven't had any other presidents who were below average intelligence before. I mean, George Bush was a nuclear physicist, right? Trump is a fucking idiot.



  21. 21

    Of course is racism. None of this would have ever come up except for the color of his skin. And now that he's been proven wrong on the Birth Certificate issue, Trump's going after his education. I don't recall him questioning Bush's education and we all know how STUPID Bush was….Donald Trump is a side show….and when you consider everything that's wrong with our world; this is the only thing he can complain about? Lastly…Donald said that if the certificate was produced, he'd produce his financials….hmmmmm, anyone seen those yet? Yeah, I didn't think so; and you won't. And he may have gone to Wharton, but I'd like to see HIS grades…The "OFFICIAL FORM" please.

    Oh, and Ms. "Shine"….What should we do with the 110 idiots who take two steps back when our President trys to "do something". What should we do with the 110 idiots who can't do their job effectively, or together and are more interested in special interests, lobbies, and beating their own drums. They can't even agree within their own parties….Get over yourself Ms. Shine. It's not the President that's the problem, but he makes an easy scapegoat; doesn't he.



  22. 22

    I'm sad because what Trump says about U.S. and foreign relations is dead on, absolutely DEAD ON and correct! But his ego, his words, and his dumb ass birth certificate and college credit obsession has caused all rational/legit points to be MOOT now. He's screwed. Sad. If he cared for the country, he would not have acted in such a bad manner.

    Re: curiousred – EXACTLY!!!! Dynamite answer….well put.



  25. 25

    People who claim that racism has nothing to do with this are either naive, or they think everyone else is. It's no coincidence that Obama is the only president in U.S. history to be absolutely hounded to prove his legitimacy as a U.S. citizen.



  26. 26

    So let me get this strait, your a racist if you question Obama? But it was OK to question Bush, Clinton or any other past president?????

    I'm so fucking sick of this liberal bullshit agenda!!!

    donald trump isn't racist–he's just a douche bag

    Re: curiousred

    You're a fucking idiot. Enlighten all of us on how bush made up weapons of mass destruction??



  29. 29

    It's embarrassing to see someone as old as Trump act so childish and high on them self. All he does is run his mouth because he can't stand the idea of not being relevant in the world somehow. That's my only opinion on the subject anymore.

    Re: curiousred – Well said man! If he can't run a business then how can he run a country? idiots

    Being said by whom?
    did you just make this up?



  32. 32

    He is a douche. What were his grades like, where was he born and why does he do his hair like that? These are questions HE needs to answer.



  33. 33

    NEED we forget that Obama is 1/2 white…



  34. 34

    it sickens me how terrible America has become. there are so many more issues that need to be dealt with right now and all people are worried about is the presidents birth certificate and his grades. it is absolutely racist, and anyone who says that it ISN'T, i've noticed is white. yes there are often times where the race card is brought on when it shouldn't be, but this time, it is needed. people often forget how terrible this country was when Bush got out of office, and they expect Obama to just fix everything in only 4 years. do they forget that it took 8 years for Bush to make the country so terrible? you people are ignorant and racist.



  35. 35

    I think when people say its racist, I dont think they mean The Donald directly is a racist for discussing it (he's just a squirrel looking for a nut). But I do think people's interest and ratings stem from racism. You'll notice the same random people who think having this information is such a big deal are the same people who hate him and who say things like "we need to take back our country and shoot illegals." Your neck does not need to be red to be a racist, and the fact that everyone was just so 'unsure' and 'suspect' when he's already proven his birthplace to the people that matter, really tells you something.
    How about this, I bet you couldn't find any black people who thought he was a foreigner…



  36. 36

    He would talk about Rosies weight for a year I suggest he look in the mirror! Also I am sure he will lose a lot of friends because of this I always thought he was unstable when he went after Rosie now I have been proven right He is a nut and needs some professional help and his kids need to commit him!!!!



  37. 37

    IF the RATINGS are there Mario, and people are watching, the stars and celebrities will follow and sign up 3 hours early. Its all about exposure and they want Donald's exposure (have to wait and see). I can't stand the apprentice.



  38. 38

    Trump got him to pop. Regardless of what he put forward, Trump won. Of course they waited to do it during Bernanke's speech on the FED. And what they showed yesterday was a certificate of live birth, not a birth certificate. He waited 3 months after Hillary called him out on it and waited this long to do so? Something is wrong with this picture.

    Re: Alliestp – To be fair, no one questioned Bush 43's educational record/endeavors because he released his transcripts to the public. There wasn't anything to question because it was out in the open. Obama went through a lot of trouble to have his sealed. However, I can't pretend to suppose I know why for (Do I think he's a terrorist? No! ha Do I think he has secret ulterior motives? Again, no!). But it IS weird to go through all that trouble to have them kept private, especially if you really don't have anything to hide. I am not saying he does (I really don't know. I think all of this rhetoric is 3 years late in the game and stealing the spotlight from matters that are FAR more important) but I could completely see why it would make many people suspicious.

    Re: curiousred – Fact: The Clinton's first raised this issue in 2008. Fact: he released the short version Certificate of Live Birth….which many found inadequate. All Obama had to do was resolve the issue as he just did. It was always in his power to do so. Fact: McCain was also questioned regarding his place of birth and whether he met the consitutional requirements to run and be President of the United States. Again….if you can question McCain (white guy) then you can certainly question Obama. Its a slippery slope when you start telling people they cannot question……



  45. 45

    Re: truthgal – McCain was only questioned briefly because he was born in the Panama Canal Zone and people were uncertain if that area was under U.S. control at his time of birth. It's a completely different situation



  46. 46

    Re: curiousred – Fact….Clinton gave so many speeches on weapons of mass destruction, the United Nations passed resolution after resolution that there were weapons of mass destruction. Come on…both repubs and dems believed it and that is a proven FACT.
    FACT: Obama had a super majority in the house and senate for the first two years he was in office. FACT: he did not need one republican vote to get anything passed. If you wanted a more progressive agenda passed, he could have done it anytime he wanted.
    Fact: When Bush left office, gross national debt was 9,986 trillion, in 2011 it is 14.26 trillion.



  47. 47

    Never was a fan or cared one way or another for him.

    But now I passionately dislike him. I wish NBC would get a clue. He's poison now.

    Re: truthgal – Democrat and Republican voters are taught to hate one another, when in plain view we can or could see that both parties are actually the same people and work together, the voters are so caught up in the tit for tit fight, its as if the voting population is kept in a child like state. Your news gives you no answers.

    Re: EmsMama – Actually sweetie Bush records are not as open as you might like to think. Especially for a man who enrolled us into the most controversial wars in history. He went AWOL after "skipping" the other controversial war, Vietnam by "joining" the National Guard (maybe he would have learned something). This information is on the books, but no one ever came forward and testified because of course it would be career suicide. I consider doing something that would normally get you thrown in jail (if you don't believe me look it up or ask you fellow military man) a bigger deal than proving to a bunch a people who probably couldn't produce their own ORIGINAL birth certificate. And so now that he has, we're gonna send him to the attic and get his grades too??? Yall are tripping…

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – I don't understand your comment…I was responding to another post and answering issues raised therein. Not sure I agree that repubs and dems are taught to hate either….I always appreciate hearing another side and most times, find myself somewhere in the middle, agreeing with issues on both sides. All I'm saying is that the debate must be based on facts not emotion and a willingness to see an argument from another point of view. In my opinion, it is then that true compromise can be reached. If each side relentlessly sticks to their "talking points" there will be no solution.

    Re: Shine

    "I can't stand it when people use that card……OBAMA SUCKS AS PRESIDENT"

    Okay, then THAT should be the issue. Trump should say "Obama has done X, I will do Y". Obama hasn't done this, I will get that done.

    But when he says "my friends white kids, can't get into these schools, how did a black guy do it", there is no way to take that as anything but racist.

    You need to look at the history of USA. You need to look at the Jim Crow Laws. Trump is bring back an unfortunate and dark history.

    There is a history of making black people "show their papers" and Trump is well aware of what he's doing.



  54. 54

    Donald trump is stupid enough to think this world was made for his stupid ass only. Talk about embarassing - Shit if he was President, countries all over the world will be laughing at us because of his wrap around hair. The Donald mouth looks like a menopausal vagina. It's obvious money can't buy Class. Trump is too vindictive to be president, If he were president and some other country made comments he don't like, this fool is so vindictive, he would start a war over some bullshit. He should take some of that money and invest in a good wig for himself.



  55. 55

    Did you know that conservative think tanks pay people to find articles like these and leave pro-teabagger and pro-GOP comments? Yes, they do. Most of what is above is bought and paid for advertising. The other people supporting Trump are just racists who don't like to admit it. Obama isn't perfect as a president, but he's way better than Bush. Which, admittedly, isn't saying much.



  56. 56

    any of you fools who like or are defending donald trump have got to be crazy. he is a lying fool who will say anything he thinks the uninformed in america wants to hear. first he went on any media outlet to talk about the birthed issue and now he says he's glad it's all over because he never really wanted to talk about it and he can now talk about more important things. one of his so called important issues is how china is ripping us off and they are our enemy. i do agree with him on this but if that's how he truly feels how come the majority of his products he sells, everything from coffee cups, teddy bears, clothing, ect.. are made in, you guessed it CHINA!! also he has products made in thailand, korea, and vietnam. in fact one of the only thing he sells from america is tea. the only thing you should get from china. then recently in an interview with CNN he said that in a CNN poll he was in a dead heat with Obama if there was an election today. CNN has since said they never had such a poll and has challenged trump to show the evidence. he has not been able to prove such a poll actually exists.

    Antics? Questioning your opposition when you're considering running for his job is the American way. Since when do Americans get angry when someone dares to question something? I think a lot of Barack Obama. I think less of Trump, but he is within his rights to question in this country, and reap whatever comes of it, whether it gains or loses voter support. For those who accuse him of being racist, Barack is also half white, so maybe you're being racist yourself merely by assuming that.

    The fact that he calls his own president "this guy", hounds him for a certificate, then finds the gall to demand he HIMSELF get to inspect it for its authenticity? Biggest ego I have ever come across. If Americans vote him in I'm moving to the Moon.

    Re: Shine – Of course he is racist..why is that so hard for people to admit??? Stop acting like racism doesn't still exist because it does! Maybe I could give Trump a pass for requesting the birth certificate..fine..but now questioning his education? come on this is just getting redundant and its just plain disrespectful and ludacris! What do yo u mean that the president has done "nothing"..care to explain? Oh and why isn't anyone asking Trump for the financial records he claimed he would release once Obama released his Birth certificate??? Who has something to hide now Trump? Also, how's that little investigation going on in hawaii Trump?? I'll be waiting….NOT!
