Talk about the irony, the tables are turned. NBC has now told reality TV star turned politician Donald Trump, “You’re Fired!”
NBC no longer wants anything to do with Donald Trump after he made racist remarks as he announced the running for the Republican presidential nomination.
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some I assume are good people, but I speak to border guards, and they tell us what we are getting,” Mr. Trump said in his June 16th announcement referring to Mexicans and the Mexico country.
The hispanic community erupted with a 200,000 signature strong petition intended for NBC to drop Trump from the television network.
Now, NBC will no longer be airing either the Miss USA or the Miss Universe pageant, which are owned by the billionaire. This statement was released on Monday: “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people and cornerstones of our values.”
NBC is not the first network to end their business relationship with Trump’s programs, Univision also plans on not airing either pageants as well.
Trump plans on suing both networks reportedly and added: “NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct – that is why our country is in serious trouble.” He also adds that NBC did not want Trump to run for a presidential bid.
I think his career is what is in serious trouble and as for that presidential nomination, bye bye.
He adds the final thought, “They want to silence Donald Trump. And Donald Trump can’t be silenced.”
