On CNN today, acclaimed historian and author, Douglas Brinkley called on NBC to drop Trump’s show from it’s lineup or face a loss of corporate sponsors and massive boycotts. Via Think Progress:
We don’t have to blame “the media” for dealing with this issue. We have to blame NBC Entertainment. They need to dump Trump from his primetime news show. He’s a poison toad on the airwaves. What corporate sponsor is going to be buying ad time for Donald Trump’s show. Any company that goes into Trump and is willing to pay is going to find consumer boycott like they’ve never seen before. If you are going to do what Trump did and go after the President of the United States in such a grotesque and disingenuous way you better cough up the goods. Today the Obama administration has shown what a charlatan Donald Trump really is.
I could not agree more! The new battle cry should be “Dump Trump”!
Current corporate sponsors of Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” include the following, from Think Progress:
Corporate sponsors of “Celebrity Apprentice” currently include: Enterprise Rental Car, Clorox, Sprint, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Walt Disney, and Groupon.
