I guess our President-elect Donald Trump doesn’t think the job of being the f**king PRESIDENT will keep him busy enough. He wants to keep his role as executive producer on his reality TV show, Celebrity Apprentice.
His manager, Kellyanne Conway, defended his decision in an interview this morning. Trump argued that presidents can do things in their “spare time.”
Conway said this about the possible conflict of interest:
“He’s a very transparent guy. Everyone can see what he’s doing, and the fact is that he is conferring with all types of experts who tell him what he can do and not do as President of the United States. If this is one of the approved activities, then perhaps he will consider staying on.”
This is a major conflict of interest because, as president, Trump will have a hand in what the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does. They regulate the content on television; this could give whatever channel that broadcasts Trump’s show an unfair advantage. This could end up causing lawsuits.
Conway also mentioned how President Barack Obama loves to play golf, which Republicans have been complaining about for years. I guess she has gotten good at pivoting while defending Trump’s stupidity. That is the logic of a third-grader, Kellyanne! Obama did it, so Trump can, too?
Does Trump not realize that being president is a full-time job? I hope he doesn’t run the country like a reality show.
