Trump says “everybody” wants to be on Apprentice 7

Donald Trump, never one to miss an opportunity to promote himself, contradict himself, or make himself look even more like an asshat, has responded to reports that Rosie O’Donnell was invited to be a cast member on The Apprentice 7, while saying that “everybody” wants to be cast.

“No, I never offered Rosie a chance to be on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,'” Trump told Access Hollywood. However, both reports said that others offered Rosie the opportunity: Mark Burnett’s production company, and NBC president Ben Silverman. But logic and Donald Trump don’t necessarily mix.

However, Trump also said, “It’s a good idea, because I would fire her fat ass. She would definitely not last more than one show … I would love to fire Rosie, but I don’t want her on the show.”

As to which celebrities will join the show, he said, “Everybody has been calling me and driving me crazy because they want to be on the show. We’ll be announcing who we’ve chosen maybe over the next three or four weeks.”
