NBC is cutting ties with Donald Trump.
The network is “ending its business relationship” with Trump over his “recent derogatory statements” regarding immigrants, the company said in a statement Monday.
“To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC,” the statement continued.
Welcome to 2015 America, where dissent is punished but a tax dodging riot instigator and a national news anchor who is a pathological liar are embraced as valued employees. Diversity of thought will not be tolerated.
On Trump’s worst days, he is a grating blowhard. He can also be quite entertaining, which is why I suspect so many welcome his candidacy (think Joe Biden but with accomplishments). As someone who has spent his entire life in relatively close proximity to the Mexican border, I can honestly say that Trump’s comments that caused this brouhaha are the sanest, most accurate political remarks he has ever made. The only reason he is being taken to task by NBC is because he deviated from the progressive groupthink orthodoxy to which American media long ago found the right to marry.
In its eagerness to remain accepted by the hive mind, NBC has also thrown all of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant contestants under the bus. Fox News contributor and 2013 Miss New York USA winner Joanne Nosuchinsky jumped right in on Twitter to hit back at the network:
