Immediately after Donald Trump fired Martin Clarke on the first episode of The Apprentice 6, Martin said, “This is unheard of,” as if Trump had never fired anyone before.
What’s really unheard of is that Martin is now practically begging Trump to give him a second chance. He’s launched a web site that’s creatively accessible at givehimachancetrump.com.
Besides a bio and information about his projects, a big fiery logo says, “Give Him a Chance Trump! Vote for Martin Here!” But clicking that just opens up a window that asks for comments and your name, e.mail address, and phone number–as if any idiot would just give that information away with no explanation about how it’s going to be used.
Meanwhile, a 49-year-old man is suing Donald Trump, executive producer Mark Burnett, and others for age discrimination. Joseph Hewett says “he was quickly brushed aside as a potential contestant on ‘The Apprentice’ TV show after interviewing for a slot in 2005 because, at 49, he was considered too old,” according to the New York Post.
He “wants to get class-action status for his suit” so “thousands of rejected ‘Apprentice’ applicants would join him as plaintiffs,” assuming there are thousands of other rejected old farts like him.
