NBC Drops The Donald

Friends don't let friends use a "You're fired" joke.

Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 1.54.31 PMNBCUniversal has ended its “business relationship” with Donald Trump after The Donald made idiotic comments about Mexicans.

Trump, during his announcement that he will unsuccessfully run for the Republican presidential nomination, said Mexicans immigrating to America were criminals, rapists and drug addicts. Yes, he actually said this.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” explained The Donald. “They’re sending people who have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.” What a guy.

As a result of NBC severing ties with Trump, CNNMoney reports that the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants won’t be broadcasted on the network. Celebrity Apprentice will still air, but without Trump as a host. The Apprentice is “being reevaluated.”
