Hillary Clinton was Donald Trump’s first choice to replace him as host of The Apprentice, with Schwarzenegger out he has asked her again.
With Donald Trump firing Arnold Schwarzenegger as the host of The Apprentice (definitely not an arms length relationship with the show) Trump needs to quickly find a replacement. He has gone back to his surprise first choice for the role – Hillary Clinton.
Behind the scenes the Donald Trump and the Clintons have renewed the close relationship they had before the election. Trump has been looking to support them as his election attacks on the Clinton Foundation have caused donations to dry up. This has greatly reduced the Clinton’s income.
Trump has been using Bill Clinton as a paid consultant to his team. His mastery of Double Speak (“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Read More>)
has helped President Trump’s team deal with the media on the allegations about their relationship with Russia.
Now Trump has gone back to Hillary with an offer to host The Apprentice again. We should know shortly if she accepts. Original Story: Trump To Make Clinton New Host of The Apprentice
Other choices – following the “I keep my friends close and my enemies closer philosophy” include:
- Meryl Streep – who Trump wants to play host as her character Miranda Priestly from the film The Devil Wears Prada (weird idea as this is a reality show)
- Alec Baldwin – I would get him off Saturday Night live – but he is rumored to want to do the show in character as Trump. The real Trump may agree to this if the ratings continue to dip.
- Micheal Scott -From The Office, Trump was heard to ask for him by name. It is thought that he thinks it is a reality show and does not realize Scott is played by actor Steve Carell.
