Along with being a shady real estate investor, prior to his current position Donald Trump also added to his fortune with his reality television show on NBC called, The Apprentice. Often showcasing just how crass and arrogant Donald Trump can be, the show in no way lent itself to contributing to the skills and training he needs to lead the United States.
However, as further evidence of just how highly Trump thinks of himself, he is leaning on the show as part of a blitz to get people to buy-in to his jobs program. As always, falling in line with Trump’s agenda, no matter how little sense it makes, Sean Spicer was all too willing to play puppet to Trump.

Per the usual, people let Spicer have it:

Will these apprenticeships be aired weekly on NBC?

Hahahahahaha! Ha! What are the DETAILS of that bullshit!??

Apprenticeships=lower paying jobs as opposed to entry level jobs. Trump’s administration is a national downgrade on every level.

One clever person reminder that Donald Trump isn’t the mastermind his administration is making him out to be, and trade professions have been doing apprenticeships long before Trump tried to brand the idea as his original idea:
MCDonalds is hiring. No ones working for free. Geeze! Trades been doing apprenticeships from beginning of time. Heard of journeyman?

One person pointed out how little Trump has accomplished since taking office:
Really?? Will he also be saying “You’re fired”? Almost 7 months in and zero done….gotta love that #MAGA

A few people feel Trump’s plan amounts to nothing more than free labor for the government:
Does that mean ‘free labor’? I’m curious to see how that will be managed.

ie unpaid interns

Lol!!! Unpaid labor, let’s call it what it is. Anything to get work for free, although that’s his MO since he never pays people.

Two of the more important responses are reminders that the United States isn’t a reality television show; it’s real life:
, “The Apprentice”, may have work on TV but that reality in the labor force is barely in existence.

Playing off the name of Reality TV Start Trump’s former show isn’t a substitute for actual policy, expertise, and ethical leadership.

It’s a shame that Trump and all those around him are so caught up in their own worlds that they have no clue what people in the real world need and go through.
