If you feel like we’ve all been living in a badly scripted reality TV show, you’re right. The Trump administration is more like a poorly done parody of the White House, and apparently, Donald Trump misses being involved with a reality TV show. Here’s an idea: The “president” could just resign and go back to The Apprentice.

According to a report by the Daily Beast, Trump has told close associates he misses hosting The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice, and he wants to go back to that. While “president,” Trump has been keeping in touch with the creator of the ‘Apprentice‘ TV show — mostly by phone — over the possibility of reviving the reality TV  show as a White House version.

The two have been discussing different ideas, with one of them related to politics, and Trump’s time in the White House.

One of the ideas kicked around by [Mark] Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of the Trump-branded Apprentice, tentatively titled The Apprentice: White House, and to produce it shortly after the president leaves office. This time, however, the TV program would be explicitly politics-themed and take full advantage of Trump’s status as a former president of the United States and a newfound Republican kingmaker.”

“There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House,” one of the sources told The Daily Beast. “It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing.”

Another source told the outlet: “They actually talked about an Apprentice: White House,” but conceded that “as far as I know, the discussion did not go far.”

Mark Burnett, according to a source, openly brags of his relationship with Trump. “Mark would say ‘My relationship with the president is incredibly strong,” the source said. ‘I’m the most powerful person in Hollywood because of it. I could wipe the floor because of it.’ Mark has no shame.”’

Well, Mark and Donald have something in common then. Neither of them has any shame, apparently. With the daily chaos in the White House and a revolving door just out front, and with Donald Trump destroying everything good in his path that is attached to his predecessor, we have a few ideas for naming the new show. The Amateur: Pussy Ass Bitch President. Or, would that be too realistic?
