NBC to Trump: ‘You’re Fired’
NBC has decided to cut ties with Donald Trump as his election year rhetoric on Mexican immigrants has apparently inflamed … Mexican immigrants.
Trump is no stranger to ill-thought remarks and NBC is unabashedly biased.
The Donald made some comments in his June 16th campaign kickoff speech that made the Mexican government a little uneasy. He said “the U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
The Mexican government’s response was to pressure Univision to cancel their contract to air Trump’s Miss USA pageant and soon after to get enough public support against Trump so that NBC would cut ties with the boisterous billionaire.
Where does that lead our badly-coiffed candidate?
What NBC may not realize is the giant favor they’ve done the right. By joining the campaign to color Trump as an enemy of … whatever, he will likely lose his moderate and populist following. Chris Christie and Jeb Bush will be left to fight over the middle.
In an epic bit of karma, Trump’s biggest critique of Carly Fiorina now applies to him too – he’s been fired.
I can concur 100% with his ‘statement’. Any doubts (and there are many) I may have about ‘The Donald’ would be as to his true ‘motivation’ for running. One shouldn’t doubt his business attributes, However, consider that this offers a man that thrives on notoriety both.
Recalling that it was Ben Carson’s blunt back talk with Obama at the table that made us all yell with glee “Score one for the people!” this is much the same. I suspect the brass shine will soon turn green. We certainly don’t need another power pac man ego telling us he is the only one that knows. He has already called the Congress idiots.
But, hey, when it comes to being wrong, this isn’t my first rodeo
