Throw Tomato NBC to Donald Trump: You're fired

More consequences for Donald Trump after his comments about Mexican immigrants: NBC dumped his beauty pageants and reiterated he will not be in The Apprentice anymore.

It's about time. Given that his only talent seems to be being consistently wrong, why was he treated like an authority on any issue? He's basically Bill Kristol but with worse hair. No matter what either man predicts, the opposite will occur.

In fact, sometimes I wonder if I was to put Donald Trump and Bill Kristol up against each other in a steel-cage fight to the death...given that they would both predict their own victory and factoring into account that whatever they predict, the opposite will occur, just how massive a hole would I tear in the fabric of space and time and what does that mean regarding life on this planet?

Afterwards, the sound of crickets?

Anyway, Trump will be way too busy planning the bombing of the Iraq oil fields to deal with his televised cattle fairs on NBC.

Quote:
Tapper asked Trump about his plan to bomb the oil fields in Iraq. “I don’t think the government of Iraq would want us to bomb their oil fields.”

“Who cares?” Trump responded.

A different story I saw on this claimed that the "sold out crowd" he spoke to at the City Club of Chicago consisted of 350 people.

I haven't managed to find a link listing the capacity of the room where the City Club of Chicago holds their events, but found the following picture from Trump's visit on their website:

https://www.facebook.com/CityClubChi...type=3&theater

It looks pretty much at capacity from this angle, at least. They're paid events, so perhaps those in attendance gave Trump their $50 to be there rather than the other way around.
