For his Truthful Tuesday prompt this week, PCGuy asks…
Is there something that you like or love now that you used to dislike, hate, or at the very least, have no opinion of before? Or perhaps there is something you now dislike, hate, or maybe even loathe that before you liked, loved, adored, or at least had no opinion of? In either case, or both cases if you so choose, what changed your mind?
I am ashamed to admit it, but when American reality television program, “The Apprentice,” starring Donald Trump, first aired on NBC in January 2004, I was a fan.
In that show, Donald Trump would judge the business skills of a group of contestants. Yes, I used to enjoy watching the hapless contestants vie for Trump’s approval and do his bidding in order to avoid getting fired. I even enjoyed Trump’s “You’re Fired” catch phrase.
Little did I know how far from “reality” that “reality television” show actually was. It was contrived to feed Donald Trump’s ego; to make him appear to be a competent business man and a good judge of talent. Sheesh, how naive I was.
So, to answer PCGuy’s question truthfully, I used to like Donald Trump when he hosted his reality show. Now I can’t think of anyone I loathe more than Donald Trump, who apparently believes being President of the United States is one big TV reality show and whose only goal is to get high ratings.
