CNN has read a statement from Fox News stating that Donald Trump, during a telephone conversation today demanded that Fox News pay $5 million to his charities to appear in tonight’s Fox News GOP debate. Fox declined that offer.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
- You can’t get Fox News to give money to charity to potentially improve ratings on their network – how exactly are you going to convince Mexico to pay for a wall again?
- You want $5 million for your charities? The grand prize for Leeza Gibbons’ charity winning the Celebrity Apprentice was $250,000.00. If your time is so ratings-worthy, shouldn’t your contestants on the Celebrity Apprentice have earned more than 20 times what your show paid them? That sounds reasonable for whatever lemonade-stand like competitions D-list celebrities had to endure week after week.
- Fox News vs. Donald Trump – isn’t this like picking favorites among heels in a WWE match? Alas, we remember the day before Trump turned to heel from a Democrat. It reminds us of the day when Mr. Wonderful hit Hulk Hogan with a chair during an episode of Piper’s Pit. Or something like that.
