NBC is set to announce its fall line-up on May 16. It must know whether Celebrity Apprentice is on the schedule. As Lawrence O’Donnell insists, NBC ought to reveal what it knows.
“NBC can no longer stand idly by, not for one more day,” he said.
If a deal is in place for another “Apprentice” season, Trump’s attention-grabbing flirtation with a presidential bid is nothing more than a publicity stunt, O’Donnell declared.
“If Donald Trump has committed to do (’Celebrity Apprentice’), he is obviously not running for president,” O’Donnell said, “and all of this, every bit of it, is as fake as Donald’s reality show.”
So how about it? If Trump’s flirtation with running is a stunt, we should know. If it’s real, we should know that, too.
