Trump's Big CON: Trump is a FAKE, Even His Role on Celebrity Apprentice Was Fake

"Donald Trump’s starring role on the reality television show 'The Apprentice' transformed the mogul’s image in the public eye, establishing him as a frank, tell-it-like-it-is businessman capable of making tough decisions.

Each episode’s most dramatic moment ended in the corporate boardroom, with Trump decisively eliminating a contestant by delivering his famous catchphrase, 'You’re fired.'

But reality television, of course, doesn’t always depict, well, reality.

According to one former competitor on the 'Celebrity Apprentice,' Trump didn’t actually decide when to fire a contestant.

'He didn’t make those decisions, he didn’t fire those people,' said Clay Aiken, 38, who competed on the show in 2012 and was also a contestant on 'American Idol.' . .

'He probably is leading the country in the same way that he did ‘Apprentice,’' Aiken added. 'Donald Trump isn’t the businessman that people believe he is because we saw him on TV, playing in ‘The Apprentice.’ And he did look like he was leading, but on ‘The Apprentice’ he doesn’t lead.' . .

On 'Celebrity Apprentice,' Trump was unaware of which contestants picked fights during the week, Aiken said. Producers would need to give him updates on what happened and how the contestants were doing. Aiken said he sees a similar pattern in Trump as president, arguing Trump doesn’t appear to 'be willing to do the work and the research to figure out what’s going on.'

Trump spent 14 seasons as host of the NBC show, and its popularity helped Trump expand his business empire and brand recognition around the world.

As The Washington Post’s Marc Fisher wrote: 'He didn’t run for president because of ‘The Apprentice,’ but according to the show’s executives and producers, without ‘The Apprentice’ there would be no candidacy.'"
