Trumpism of the Day: Donald Trump Loses Again

“I really didn’t expect this,” Charles Rupaul said  after accepting the statuette. “I came here thinking I got invited to the prom and I’m going to dance my ass off tonight, but i didn’t expect that I would have this in my hand while I was dancing. It’s a very special night not just for me but for all the young people around the world who dance to the beat of a different drummer.”           The Donald summed up the whole mess  “The Emmys have no credibility — no wonder the ratings are at record lows … ” [ “The Emmys are all politics, that’s why, despite nominations, ‘The Apprentice’ never won — even though it should have many times over.”

Emmys:  RuPaul Named Best Reality Host

The Apprentice Snubbed

The awards were handed out over two nights this weekend in Los Angeles.

RuPaul won the Emmy Award for outstanding host of a reality or reality competition series on Sunday night for Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race.  

American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest, Dancing With the Stars’ Tom Bergeron, Hollywood Game Night’s Jane Lynch, Little Big Shots’ Steve Harvey and Project Runway’s Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn also were in the running for the award.  Donald Trump,  once again, was among the losers.

Donald Trump is 0-for-2 with Television Academy voters.  In fact, as the bellicose orange-hued bloviator goes after a much bigger prize, his Emmy history might provide a small clue as to what could happen if he doesn’t actually end up in the Oval Office. Just as he’s upended traditional campaign etiquette, he trashed awards-show decorum when the show he hosted and executive produced, “The Apprentice,” lost to “The Amazing Race” in 2004 and 2005.

The Apprentice  wasn’t even nominated for Outstanding Reality Competition Program for the next 10 years when it and its successor, “The Celebrity Apprentice,” were on the air.  The Donad desribed tghe winning show  It’s “a piece of crap,”  And on Twitter in 2012, he summed up the whole mess like this: “The Emmys have no credibility — no wonder the ratings are at record lows … ” “The Emmys are all politics, that’s why, despite nominations, ‘The Apprentice’ never won — even though it should have many times over.”

“I got screwed out of an Emmy,” he said, thinking back to his first time as a nominee. “Everybody thought I was gonna win it. In fact, when they announced the winner, I stood up before the winner was announced, and I started walking for the Emmy. And then they announced the most boring show on television, ‘The Amazing Race.’”

 

Trump, by the way, is a member of the Television Academy, and has been since the first season of “The Apprentice.”

So really, there’s no reason he couldn’t come back and make the Emmys great again.
