NBC To The Donald: YOU'RE FIRED! Why? Because You're A Racist

NBC To The Donald: YOU’RE FIRED! Why? Because You’re A Racist

The past few days have been pretty rough on conservatives. What with the same-sex marriage issue settled, Obamacare upheld, and the confederate flag finally being removed from state properties and businesses left and right, they are probably somewhere curled up in the fetal position. We hate to pile on, but we have something else for them to whine about and put on the head of the “liberal media.” Here’s one more in the “win” column for sanity.

You’re fired, Donald Trump!

NBC says it is dropping all of its Trump-related programming and ending their business relationship. The action comes on the heels of Trump’s strange and profoundly racist announcement for candidacy for the Republican nomination for President. Trump made the declaration that “[Mexico is] sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and they are rapists.” The well-known comb-over king also spoke of erecting a huge border fence between U.S. and Mexico and making Mexico foot the bill. We’ll just let that one lie, okay?

NBC issued a statement released to Deadline on June 29.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

The statement continues: “To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC.”

The megalomaniac millionaire’s response:

“NBC, frankly, I’ve had a great relationship with them. But they didn’t want me to run because they wanted to do The Apprentice…I just told them I cannot do The Apprentice because of the fact that I’m running…They were not happy with this, and now, with my statements on immigration, which happen to be correct, they are going to take a different stance – that’s okay. Whatever they want to do is okay with me. I’ve had a lot of great relationships with NBC. As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that, because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC. You have to stop illegal immigration. I know NBC might disagree with me, but you cannot have illegal immigration. You do not have a country if you do…I told NBC I can’t change my stance… My stance on immigration is correct.”

There are a couple of things you have to say about the guy: he is awesome at lying through his teeth without a care in the world, and he sticks to his guns, no matter how warped and just wrong he may be.

In a recent interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Trump stands by his original statement about “Mexicans.”

“Some are good and some are rapists and some are killers. We don’t even know what we’re getting… The United States is like a dumping ground for the world’s problems. You’re probably going to have terrorists coming from the Middle East. Somebody said ‘Oh, we don’t have terrorists.’ They don’t even know, because they don’t know who’s coming because we have this open border.”

You may or may not be surprised to learn that Trump really seems to connect with the racist element of the conservative base, according to a recent Fox “News” GOP Nominee Preference poll, (for whatever that’s worth). Trump is coming in as second in the field of Republican candidates, at 11 percent. This number is just behind Jeb Bush, who leads with 15%.

At least he won’t be flapping his gums on NBC anymore.  Now if I could just get his stank off my coffee.
