Even the Apprentice Producers had to Struggle to Make Trump–and His Decisions–Seem Coherent

Daniel Politi writing at Slate:

“[Trump] had just gone through I don’t know how many bankruptcies. But we made him out to be the most important person in the world. It was like making the court jester the king.” Bill Pruitt, a producer on the show, said, “We walked through the offices and saw chipped furniture. We saw a crumbling empire at every turn. Our job was to make it seem otherwise.”

As I’ve always said, the President isn’t a particularly smart man, nor is he a particularly better-than-average businessman, but he played both on TV.
