Seems like nothing, and I mean nothing, is going right for Donald Trump these days. He’s been dumped by major corporations he had business relationships with, painted as a racist, xenophobic asshat (which he is), and now comes word that his beloved show “The Celebrity Apprentice,” which NBC fired the Donald from, may soon be hosted by…wait for it…….George Lopez.
How’s that for karma coming back to bite you in the butt?!
“There have been initial conversations with George Lopez’s representatives, and, given Donald Trump’s crazy comments, George would be the perfect loud response to Trump.”
And a second source added:
“It could be a smart move by NBC to cast George as Trump’s replacement, and it would also bring diversity to the network. The talks are in the very early stages.”
The irony of the whole situation is almost too much to take! Imagine George Lopez getting to look into the camera and say, “You’re fired,” much in the same way NBC did to Trump just a couple of days after he remarked:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Not only is the irony sweet as can be, but can you possibly imagine just how right-wing heads will begin exploding when they see Lopez as Trump’s replacement? They’re already fond of claiming that Hispanic immigrants are taking jobs away from Americans, so when they see this, no doubt they’ll say it’s all part of a grand conspiracy.
Memo to NBC: I never cared for “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but if you do hire George Lopez, I fully intend to become a loyal viewer.
