Week 68 of The Presidential Apprentice! The show that, for some reason, just won’t quit, is producing lots of spinoffs, the least of which is West Virginia’s Biggest Loser, starring this turd which even Donald Trump wants to flush. Trump and Blankenship’s base kind of like that smell, but that isn’t enough to win. In red Ohio, special election Republicans can’t be little Trumps and win the election, so the party will have to pick less silly candidates if they want to lose by smaller margins. Republicans that aren’t little Trumps might as well go home. The news wonders what this has to do with Nancy Pelosi.

Still, nothing beats the hilarity of The Trump and Rudy ShowGreg Dworkin rounds up the latest Rudy news. Everyone knows Giuliani is a racist blowhard, although Rudy denies that, even if he just said that, because it’s just a rumor.

Scott Pruitt finally assists the EPA by disappearing into his spider hole. Gina Haspel begs to be put out of her misery, but Trump doesn’t think she’s had quite enough. Elaine Chao, thought to be only moderately corrupt, has found her niche in promoting her dad.

David Waldman reveals that Jewish people not working as doctors, lawyers, postal carriers or cowboys sometimes find themselves in international crime syndicates. Michael Cohen literally catered to mobsters, along with some other ventures. Israeli operatives who aided Harvey Weinstein collected information on former Obama administration officials. The Trump team hired the spy firm for ‘dirty ops’ on Iran arms deal, unless the Trump team hired a team to hire the spy firm for the dirty ops.

For the youngsters out there, David reviews the history of ACORN and how that led to Donald Trump. Being destitute and degenerate lead Donald Trump to the presidency.
