"Dump Trump!" Urges Noted Historian

Categories: Donald Trump

Historian Douglas Brinkley said on CNN that NBC should take a dump on Trump -- I mean dump Donald Trump.

According to the linked write-up:

"Brinkley pinned the blame for the reemergence of birtherism on NBC Entertainment for giving real estate mogul Donald Trump a primetime platform.

"Brinkley called on NBC to immediately drop Trump's show, The Apprentice, from its lineup.

"If NBC decides to keep Trump on the air, Brinkley called on corporate sponsors to pull their ads or face a massive consumer boycott."

I don't know, I'd rather go with the ad boycott -- which I've already been practicing for years -- than urge the network to dump the show because of Trump's political views.

That would only martyr him -- and then someone else would surely pick him up and he'd become even more of a crazed certificate queen!

I called for a boycott of all D Trump enterprises, hotel, casino's, tv shows, etc. This man is an idiot!!! Money don't make you special or give you special ability to say the dumbest, racist comments. The Blacks, as if we're a different species or entity, especially those whores on his show should have some damn morals and guts to walk away from the apprentice and Trump. Nene and Star Jones wake up you're being played as the stupid loud black woman as you are for Trumps benefit for a mere what "thousands" of dollars. How much is your dignity worth and how can you look yourself or your kids/family/friends in the face. Where's Trump birth certificate or college transcripts?

The more attention we pay to these people (including b-movie actors and hack pop stars) the more important they become. A Bronx Tale taught me one of the most important lessons of my life. Do any of these people put food on your table? Then why should you care about them? When you have problems, they're not going to be there to help. Start giving more time to your own life, your friends and family. They're way more important and interesting than these idiots. Enough already. Show business is interesting, celebrity isn't.

I completely agree with David Brinkley. Get rid of Trump. We need to boycott any sponsors that don't drop themselves from his show.

As Dame Edna so wonderfully pointed out, Trump in Brit slang is fart. President Fart has such a lovely ring to it, don't cha think? From the looks of the photo above, it appears The Donald unleashed a mighty trump and blew his comb-over forwards.

PS - did you see in the news how he tied releasing his tax records to Obama's releasing his birth certificate. Now he won't release the tax returns! He knows we'll find out he doesn't have nearly as much $$ as he says he does. I wonder how much he donates to charity, if anything? Actually, I think I'll take everyone's advice and stop wondering about anything having to do with this heartless cad.

A smart thing I read the other day but forgot where - when Celebrity Apprentice is over, his candidacy will likewise be over. Hope it's true.

Hey, ..I'm awaiting articulate reader comments about dork Trump stump.Whatta jerk! (i know from personal boring experience.) How can the Americanpeople even acknowledge his existence? USA media targets the lowest common denominator...dumb-down. Hey, let’s recruit some class, like we had yesteryear.

Boycott Trump is a sentiment I have previously expressed but in retrospect, the effort expended to formally announce any boycott gives him too much exposure and credibility. Just ignore the fucking asshole. Period.

We'll never see those tax returns, his college records, or anything else.

Just for the record, Barack Obama released the legal version of his birth certificate, the "short form," in 2008.

Hawai'i, like many states, does not allow you to easily access the "long form." When I, like many people, requested my birth certificate for work and passport purposes, I got a short form copy, not a long form one. This is what most states will give you.

If we had any media to speak of, they would have clarified this a long time ago. But many are as dumb as fenceposts, or Trump for that matter, though without an iota of his deviousness and guile.
