NBC CHIEF: We Might WHACK Trump If He Goes Too Far



Hey Bob, WTF is your definition of The Donald going 'TOO FAR'?





Donald Trump has called for revolution and advocated ridiculous birther nonsense. But none of that seems too outrageous to NBC chief Bob Greenblatt.


At the Television Critics Association conference on Sunday, Greenblatt was asked if NBC asked the host of “The Apprentice” to dial back his clownish politics. The answer appeared to be no.


“We live in this country where you can say anything you want as long as you are not harming other people,” Greenblatt said. “He has his political belief system but I really don’t think what he’s doing in his personal life is going to corrupt what he’s doing on the show.”

That said, Greenblatt added that “if he becomes somehow hurtful and says or does things that cross a line, we would figure out what to do with that.” Greenblatt then suggested America actually owes him thanks: “We talked him out of running for president,” he said. “Wasn’t that good enough?”


No response from Trump yet on his Twitter feed.

4. Bob's comments regarding Trump were mentioned today.

He spoke about the controversial Apprentice star at NBC's Television Critics Association session on Sunday (January 6).

10. Greenblatt is disingenuous.

Trump's flirtation with his would-be candidacy for president got NBC extra ratings for his show. The corporation got enough benefit before it reeled Trump back in esp. due to the FEC rules about being a declared candidate and media time.

11. “We talked him out of running for president,” he said. “Wasn’t that good enough?”

actually no. He would have added a lot of laughs to the puke primary. He never would have made it further than that. You gots to be the one countin the votes to win the puke primary.

So Off with his head. (or hair)
