    Mr. Trump, confronted with drastically declining ratings for his show, Celebrity Apprentice, has, out of desperation, resorted to desperate measures. While he has in the past placed a motley group of odd and strange individuals on his show, he has now gone full out, placing the most nutty and crazy nitwits that money can find on his show. All this in the hope of convincing them to make complete fools of themselves in front of the entire country. Other than the one sane person in the group, Meat Loaf, who was picked because of his outrageously sounding stage name, the rest are a bunch of has-beens, never-wases and monumental losers. One cannot help but fear for the mental health, safety and welfare of poor Mr. Meat Loaf, who, no doubt, will be driven completely insane by the rest of the cast before all this nonsense is over.
    The specter of what is to come is most frightening and it is hoped that Mr. Trump will keep is daughter away from this coming debacle in order to protect her and her unborn child from any harm.

    Leakes and Starr! WOW!! Both such egomaniacs, it will be interesting to watch those two in ACTION! I think Starr will win out – Leakes may THINK when she enters a room that she OWNS it, but Starr will have probably already claimed ownership by the time Leakes finishes ‘primping.’
