What would you ask Donald Trump?

Tomorrow, Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, who will appear as a Carolyn sub on The Apprentice 5, will conduct a telephone press conference with reporters. I, for one, wouldn’t miss that to watch the Weavers face judgement.

On these calls, reporters typically ask these TV celebrities brilliant questions like, “What’s your favorite color?” Basically, they don’t do much to conceal the fact that they’re starstruck and/or incapable of connecting with the stars as viewers of their shows. While the one or two questions I have for Trump aren’t inane, there are things I’m sure I haven’t thought to ask.

So: What are you dying to ask Donald Trump?

I don’t promise to actually ask any submitted questions, especially the ridiculously funny ones, because I am not Stuttering John. (As was evident in my interview with Jonathan and Victoria, I’m about as confrontational as a paranoid squirrel.) But hopefully they’ll be funny enough to reprint, and if they’re good enough, maybe we’ll get some information from him. Like, why does The Donald insist upon calling Lenny “The Russian”?

While I play trivia aboard a Song flight to LA later today, send in your suggested questions, and I promise to at least consider asking them. And I’ll report back after the call on Friday.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
