NBC Fires Donald Trump for Un-PC Comments on Illegal Immigration But Keeps News Anchor Lying Brian Williams
NBC TO DONALD TRUMP, YOU’RE FIRED … WELCOME TO LIBERAL INTOLERANCE AND THE MSM DOUBLE STANDARD.
Look what happens when you dare take a position that goes against the liberal MSM. NBC has cut ties with Donald Trump following the comments the Donald made over a week ago when he announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. NBC stated that the network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump. NBC stated in a press release that, “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” Hmm, really? NBC has respect and dignity for all people, who knew? Unless you are a Conservative, member of the Tea Party, or anyone who dare disagree with the liberal agenda.
NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
The network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump, the statement added. Its relationship with “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue, as Trump ceased his involvement with the reality show during his presidential bid.
The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism for comments he made during his announcement speech earlier this month.
Donald Trump: NBC will stand behind ‘lying’ Brian Williams, but it won’t stand behind me
What about NBC’s values regarding telling the truth? I guess that is not high on their list or a cornerstone of their values. Isn’t it quite telling about NBC that they would fire Donald Trump for speaking his opinion, yet NBC kept news anchor, “lying” Brian William after it had been documented that he had lied too many times to keep track while reporting the news. But that is OK and keeping in line with NBC values. Because that showed dignity and respect. This is the same network that also employees Al Sharpton, who has made fabricated comments as well.
UNREAL … Univision TV Executive Compares Donald Trump to Racist Killer Dylann Roof (UPDATE: The Donald Responds)(Trump Sues Univision for Breaking Contract)
AND THESE ARE THE FOLKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HOST A PRESIDENTIAL FORUM?
The President of Programming and Content at Univision compared GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump to racist murderer Dylann Roff today on Instagram. REALLY? Could you imagine what the outrage would be if Obama was compared to a murderer? It wasn’t long before the pics were taken down, but the damage had been done. How irresponsible could one be who claims to be in the media?
How do you say media bias in Spanish?
“I think he should be ashamed of himself. He deleted it. And the lawyers are going to have a field day. As you know they broke a contract… In my opinion a tremendous amount of pressure was put on, frankly by Mexico, by the leaders of Mexico put on Univision because they didn’t like what I was saying about trade… Frankly, a tremendous amount of people are coming in. We have some horrible people coming in, not just from Mexico but from all over. And they are killers and they are people we don’t want in this country… Everybody knows what I’m saying is true, Mexico knows what I’m saying is true.”
UPDATE I: Further attacks and backlash against The Donald … Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente resigned as host of the Miss USA pageant, Calls Trump a Clown.
The Chilean actor who was slated to host the Miss USA pageant pulled out even before Univision pulled the plug, saying Donald Trump was “ignorant” and a “clown.”
Cristian de la Fuente, who stars in “Devious Maids,” went nuts on Trump for calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
Cristian is not alone in his disdain. Roselyn Sanchez, his “Devious Maids” co-star, also pulled out and Univision officially pulled the plug Thursday morning.
Univision is the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States, so its decision is a blow to the Miss Universe Organization, a joint venture of Trump and Comcast’s NBCUniversal division.
Last week, in his speech announcing a run for president, Trump deplored immigrants from Mexico who “have lots of problems” and are “bringing those problems to us.”
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” he said, adding, “and some, I assume, are good people.”
UPDATE II: Trump Sues Univision.
Donald Trump intends to sue Univision for breach of contract and defamation after the media company announced it would renege on a five-year contract for broadcast rights to the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, his lawyer said Thursday.
The announcement comes hours after Trump told the On Media blog that Univision was defaulting on an “iron-clad” $13.5 million contract, which he said it had no right to terminate
Donald Trump Announces He is Running for President in 2016 … ‘Our Country Needs a Truly Great Leader’ (VIDEO)
THE DONALD IS IN …
Yesterday, Donald Trump entered the already crowded Republican field for the 2016 Presidential race.The Donald’s announcement was very different from many of the other GOP candidates looking to become the next President of the United States. Why you ask? Because he did not mince words and went after the failings of Barack Obama, Democrats and all establishment politicians, including those in the Republican party. Trump stated that he “will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” as well as going after China and Mexico. Trump said, “I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places .?.?. and I’ll bring back our money.”
Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he’s running for president and vowed to be America’s Mr. Fix It — tackling unemployment, illegal immigration and terrorism.
“I will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” the billionaire declared during a 45-minute red-meat speech at Trump Tower, his company’s Fifth Avenue headquarters.
DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCEMENT
Like him or hate him, The Donald is a different breed of candidate. Obviously we see where the liberal MSM stands and many so-called establishment, conservative pundits. Trump has a couple of things going for him; one, he is a leader. Two, he is not afraid of reading from the non-PC script and three, he is not a politician who is beholden to special interests and calls the establishment out as idiots and rips them for their ridiculous, moronic policies. Some want to call Trump a non-serious candidate, calling him a clown. I will admit he is not my number one choice, but what he brings to the political conversation and resonates with the people is the mood of many Americans that they are sick and tired of politicians, Democrat and Republican alike, who just care about their own power and either could care less about America and its citizens or are just too stupid to know better and do anything good to make change.
TRUMP: Well, you need somebody, because politicians are all talk, no action. Nothing’s gonna get done. They will not bring us — believe me — to the promised land. They will not.
As an example, I’ve been on the circuit making speeches, and I hear my fellow Republicans. And they’re wonderful people. I like them. They all want me to support them. They don’t know how to bring it about. They come up to my office. I’m meeting with three of them in the next week. And they don’t know — “Are you running? Are you not running? Could we have your support? What do we do? How do we do it?”
I like them. And I hear their speeches. And they don’t talk jobs and they don’t talk China. When was the last time you heard China is killing us? They’re devaluing their currency to a level that you wouldn’t believe. It makes it impossible for our companies to compete, impossible. They’re killing us.
But you don’t hear that from anybody else. You don’t hear it from anybody else. And I watch the speeches.
Trump rips the establishment politicians for being in the pocket of lobbyists, donors, and by the special interests, rather then working for “We the People”.
TRUMP: So I’ve watched the politicians. I’ve dealt with them all my life. If you can’t make a good deal with a politician, then there’s something wrong with you. You’re certainly not very good. And that’s what we have representing us. They will never make America great again. They don’t even have a chance. They’re controlled fully — they’re controlled fully by the lobbyists, by the donors, and by the special interests, fully.
Yes, they control them. Hey, I have lobbyists. I have to tell you. I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me. They’re great. But you know what? it won’t happen. It won’t happen. Because we have to stop doing things for some people, but for this country, it’s destroying our country. We have to stop, and it has to stop now.
The Donald shreds the stupid politicians who are destroying America.
I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs, and I’ll bring back our money.
Right now, think of this: We owe China $1.3 trillion. We owe Japan more than that. So they come in, they take our jobs, they take our money, and then they loan us back the money, and we pay them in interest, and then the dollar goes up so their deal’s even better.
How stupid are our leaders? How stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen? How stupid are they?
- Democrats are going to have a field day, especially with Jeb Bush who just announced Monday. Tueday, “the Donald” threw his hat into the ring
Donald Trump Says in Iowa: GOP Frontrunners Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush are Doomed to Lose … Regrets Not Having Run in 2012, ‘I Would’ve Won the Race Against Obama’
TRUMP HAS NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH …
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, Donald Trump said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose. The Donald also went on to say that he regretted that he hadn’t run himself in 2012. Although it is easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, Trump is
47% 100% correct on a couple of issues. One, Romney had his chance against a weak, unpopular president in 2012 and failed. Romney failed because he tried to back into the victory, rather than play offense and win the game. Two, “we’re Bushed out,” especially when Jeb Bush is for “common core” and is pro ‘illegal” amnesty. Much like what Se. Ted Cruz had stated, Romney and Bush represent the “mushy middle” and have no chance of winning.
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.
Trump said he should be in the White House right now.
Trump said he’s not sure which of the potential GOP 2016ers he’d prefer right now, but he’s certain it would be a mistake for Romney to seek a third term.
“He failed. He choked. He’s like a deal-maker that didn’t close the deal. He shouldn’t be running again. He had a great opportunity to win against a president that was absolutely lame, and he didn’t do it. … The 47 percent statement, which was a disaster, is not going away. Romneycare is not going away. All of his problems are not going away. He should get out and get out quickly.”
As for Bush, a former governor of Florida whose family has sent two men to the White House, Trump said: “Frankly we’ve had enough of the Bushes. We’re bushed out.”
At Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend, Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush saying they are just not the answer for Republicans. Trump said as to the Presidential election in 2016 and who should be running for the GOP, “It can’t be Mitt because Mitt ran and failed.” Trump further went on to say, “the last thing we need is another Bush. Truer words have ever been spoken and imagine that, they come from The Donald. The last thing the GOP needs in 2016 is an establishment candidate that is more Democrat-like than that who would be in favor of Republican principles and the platform. Donald Trump stated in Iowa that he would “build a beauty of a fence along the southern border.” Whether Trump would or not, or whether he would even give up the perks of his private life to run for president, is irrelevant. What is relevant is that we cannot have another loser, establishment, mushy middle candidate in the form of John McCain or Mitt Romney as the standard bearer.
CBS News: Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush:
“It can’t be Mitt, because Mitt ran and failed,” Trump said.
Trump said he liked Romney, formerly a governor of Massachusetts, but he suggested Romney’s infamous “47 percent” comments and his affiliation with a Massachusetts health care reform plan akin to Obamacare should disqualify him.
Plus, Romney “choked” in 2012, failing to unseat Obama in an election that Republicans could have won, Trump argued.
“You can’t have Bush,” Trump added. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”
Trump criticized Bush’s support of common core federal education standards, and he panned Bush’s comment that many illegal immigrants come to the United States as an “act of love” to help their families.
“Half of these people are criminals,” Trump said. “They’re coming for a lot of other reasons, and it’s not love.”
Trump also suggested the unpopularity Jeb Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, helped usher President Obama into office: “His brother really gave us Obama.”
Trump offered an ambitious preview of his prospective presidential agenda. ” If I run for president, and if I win, I would totally succeed in creating jobs, defeating ISIS, and stopping the Islamic terrorists… reducing the budget deficit… securing our southern border… stopping nuclear weapons in Iran and elsewhere… saving Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid without cutting it down to the bone… repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something far better.”
Donald Trump Warns GOP at Family Leadership Summit in Iowa … Immigration Bill (Amnesty) “Could Be a Death Wish’ for Republican Party”
Does it really take Donald Trump to state the obvious for Republicans to get a clue? Obviously, it does.
Donald Trump spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa on Saturday and warned the GOP of the dangers of passing immigration reform. The event was organized by The Family Leader, a Christian conservative organization. Donald Trump warned the GOP that the proposed immigration bill will be a “death wish” for the Republican Party. Trump went on to say that border security is a must. The Donald is correct. For anyone, especially Republicans, who thinks that the 11 to 15 million illegals in the United States are going to vote for the GOP, you are delusional. For any one who thinks at the illegals will be tax payers are delusional as well. We already have a bout 50% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes, what category do you think illegals will fall? Let alone the additional subsidies, welfare, food stamps and other entitlement programs. We cannot afford the current welfare state, how are we going to be able to afford the one with 11+ million more illegals and the rest that pour over the border that a government refuses to protect?
Donald Trump on Saturday made his first-ever political visit to Iowa, speaking to conservative Christians, stoking speculation about his political plans and labeling the United States a “laughingstock” during an interview with NBC News.
He warned the Family Leadership Summit in an evening speech that Republicans will have a “really tough” time in the 2016 presidential race if Hillary Clinton runs. He said the Senate’s immigration bill “could be a death wish” for the Republican Party but insisted the GOP has to do “the right thing.” And he bragged about buying the old Post Office building in Washington: “You have the White House, you have Congress and I’m building right in the middle!”
Hat Tip Video – The Gateway Pundit
“People come in illegal. You need border security. It all starts. Either you have a country or you don’t. It’s very simple. You either have a country or you don’t. And having a country starts with security at your borders … Now, when it comes to immigration you have to do the right thing. You have to. In your own heart you’re dealing with lives, you’re dealing with human beings. You have to do the right thing. But it’s gotta be done in a very smart and methodical method. The Republicans, let’s say, I hear 11 million illegals. Well, I hear the number could be much higher than that. If you do something where they get a vote just remember, and I think I was the first one to say it. I don’t know if you remember, I said this a long time ago when it first came up. Every one of those people, virtually, will be voting Democratic. Do what’s right but be careful. It could be a death wish for the Republican Party.”
Amnesty for illegals will not only be the death of the Republican party, it will be the death of the United States as we know it. Imagine this, we already have an unsustainable welfare states, now we are going to add another 11 million to it and make matters worse? The point of a responsible immigration policy is to let the right people in to sustain the country, not add 90% low income workers just because the entered our country illegally and broke our laws.
Imagine allowing 11 million new Democrat voters into America who become part of the “what can the government give me” class. How could the GOP ever win another election?
The Trump Card … Donald Trump to Endorse Newt Gingrich? Third Party Run? Who Knows (UPDATE: Trump Endorses Romney}
THE TRUMP CARD GETS HIMSELF MEDIA ATTENTION, AGAIN.
The Donald has once again grabbed the media spot light and has announced that he has a a major announcement in Las Vegas today. It is being reported byKLAS-TV8 that Donald Trump is going to endorse Newt Gingrich. The announcement is slated to “pertain to the presidential race, according to a statement from Trump’s office. Gingrich claims he has no idea what Trump is going to say. Man he has a way of continually bring attention to himself doesn’t he. Just curious, when did Donald trump become politically relevant?
An advisor to Donald Trump says he will make a major announcement in Las Vegas tomorrow. Sources tell the 8 News NOW I-Team Trump will endorse Newt Gingrich.
According to Trump advisor Michael Cohen, “Donald J. Trump will be making a major announcement tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. at Trump International Hotel & Tower, Las Vegas, Nevada… The announcement will pertain to the Presidential race.”
One might ask themselves why would Donald Trump get involved at this point in the GOP Presidential primary and endorse Newt, especially after Gingrich was just hammered in the Florida primary? Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com has come up with some plausible reasons why The Donald wants the media attention. Maybe there will be a subliminal message flashing in the back ground that says, “YOU MUST WATCH THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE”. What are the chances that Trump will make a reference during his announcement that the new Apprentice show begins in two weeks? It is free advertizing after all.
… Trump might also pitch the next season of Celebrity Apprentice while announcing an endorsement for Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. Another possibility is that Trump will announce plans for a new show called “The GOP Candidate Apprentice”…
My take is if Trump does endorse Newt Gingrich, who because of not being on so many primary ballots has more than an up hill climb for the required delegates, The Donald is doing it to set up a potential third party run. Its a win-win for Trump. This was he can say either at the end of the GOP primary, my candidate won, look at me, I am so relevant, I am a king makers. Or if Romney wins, he can then say, I am running as a third party as I do not think that Mitt is right for America and still put himself out there is the MSM limelight. Of course, any third party run by Trump is a victory for Obama.
UPDATE I: Looks like all the so-called pundit politicos in the know got it wrong … TRUMP endorses Mitt Romney. That is correct, The Donald picks Romney. As the Daily Caller opines, there are some with quite a bit of egg on their face.
In the end, The Donald went with what he is perceiving as the sure thing.
Donald Trump, the Apprentice, Opportunist, Shameless Self Promoter …
According to ABC News, Donald Trumps minions are exploring a potential third party run for The Donald for the Presidency in 2012. Trump did not want to go through the process of a primary and have his past, finances, tax returns, multiple bankruptcies, marriages and past positions and comments fodder to be dissected by other candidates or the media in debates, but he wants the pass and run as a third party. Nice.
Third Party Candidate … Don’t for get to watch the Apprentice
ABC News’ Huma Khan and Jennifer Wlach report:
Donald Trump’s top political adviser told ABC News he’s speaking to “high-level political operatives” to explore a third-party presidential bid on behalf of the real estate mogul, in a sign that Trump may not quite be done with the 2012 presidential race just yet.
“I can confirm that over the past two weeks I have spoken with many high-level political operatives, campaign managers, finance directors — some of whom I have spoken to in the past. Most are new people from all over the country,” said Michael Cohen, executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to the reality-TV star.
The Donald continues to shamelessly self-promote himself and his TV show at the expense of a Presidential primary. How pathetically sad. This egotists knows damn well that if he ran as a third party candidate that it would mean sure victory and reelection for Barack Obama. If Donald Trump actually does run in 2012, we will then know what his true politics really are. Honestly, I think its more to keep his name in the news and free PR for his TV show, The Apprentice.
