The Chilling Proof Trump Is Treating the Presidency Just Like 'The Apprentice'
CNN anchor Erin Burnett narrated a mashup of President Trump's Tuesday press stunt with Republican leadership and his previous hit reality show The Apprentice.
Burnett wanted to demonstrate how Trump is treating the presidency similarly to his former TV show, and how it's possible to juxtapose the two scene-by-scene.
“President Trump, always the showman, an executive producer at heart, did not waste an opportunity to turn this situation into political theater, complete with empty chairs and name cards for Senator Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi," Burnett said, as the clips played.
"And if you think this looks familiar, well, yeah. On the left is the president today, and on the right, a tight shot, almost the same one of [Trump] from The Apprentice," Burnett continued. "The boardroom from today with the empty chairs. Same sort of set-up from The Apprentice."
"The only difference today was nobody was technically, fired," she concluded.
