So Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee for the 2016 US Presidential Election. Having made his name in real estate AND reality TV maybe he needs to look to the latter for a VP that can help him actually get to the White House [and - at risk of my getting "flamed" - I know I should never talk politics here] while I am not particularly enamored of the idea of Hilary may the good Lord help us all if Trump moves from Trump Tower to Pennsylvania Ave.

Survivor is a popular and longtime reality show where the basic premise is this - how do you persuade people you have maligned and "pissed off" to vote to give you the prize! Richard Hatch for VP anyone?

So, continuing the TV Theme perhaps NBC's next big series could be a spin-off of "The Apprentice". You know the show, people get given a task each week and then Trump gets to "fire" the worst performer. Perhaps a collection of VP "candidates" with tasks like "persuade" a group of women to vote for a misogynist, "persuade" Latino voters that he was just joking when he called Latino Immigrants "Criminals" And "Rapists" and so on. I would watch!
