If trump is part of a media company, he won't own it and he won't host Jeopardy

He and FOX are done.

trump is transactional and he expects loyalty, not reality. They failed him and I get the sense that many there are over him.

Hell, this morning NY Post tweeted that he is "a long shot to host Jeopardy."

Your first reaction might be, "how dare they even think that he can host Jeopardy."

Let's be real. They know that. News Corp is trolling trump.

It mocks him for being the opposite of what Jeopardy is and more importantly, it inherently suggests that he is looking for a job because he LOST.

Now, it was rumored in 2016 that his end game was just attention to start a media company.

And that rumor is back.

He doesn't have the money though. Worse, he's hundreds of millions in debt. Worse yet, he's terrible at running businesses.

Who would invest in him?

Nobody, but an OAN or Newsmax might want to align with the trump brand.

trump didn't own the Apprentice, he simply was a player in it.

He doesn't own all of the buildings with his name, he had created a real estate brand.

Most won't touch him, but a lower tier right wing shout fest, propaganda factory is a match. They get even more eyeballs and he gets to claim a "network."

I'm not sure of the logistics of this, but it is plausible, barring what happens to him legally etc.

1. There have been rumors about him buying or purchasing a controlling

share of either OAN or Newsmax.

I don't know the feasibility of that. I'd rather having Trump and his kids doing shows nobody cares about than meddling in politics.

Think Ace Rothstein in Casino.

3. Buy with what?

I guess he has personal equity. Would they give him an equity stake for his performances?

2. He can host anti-Jeopardy on TrumpTV.

Some of the categories would be:
Orange
Comb-overs
Nepotism
Court Packing
Shitholes
Putin
Pence & Mother
Foreign Wives

4. Sure looks like he is

moving towards some type of Reality TV pay per view or subscription operation. Anyone can rent time on RT . The owners of OAN and Newsmax are mega Trump Donors,so anything is possible.

The story about Trump's new 24' Campaign operation kind of smells like a mega slush fund to keep the 15k per month coming for his Sycophants.

5. He couldn't even correctly read the answer on Jeopardy. How the actual F does this *hit get started?

What a joke. Unless someone is willing to toss money his way, none of anything will happen because he's broke. He can't get financing (maybe through foreign tho?) in the US, no one trusts him, he's known for not paying vendors, etc. He simply does not have the assets on his own to start any media company. This is all such folly. Exactly what he thrives on, right?
