“A parade of contestants has shown up for the new series of ‘The Apprentice’ at the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse. Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and Florida Rep. Byron Donalds all starred in this week’s episode in which contestants vie to be Donald Trump’s running mate as he endures the indignities of Manhattan DA ‘Fat Alvin’ Bragg’s hush money trial. ‘I do have a lot of surrogates and they are speaking very beautifully,’ Trump told reporters. In previous episodes, they’ve gone to Mar-a-Lago to audition for the role of vice presidential candidate or appeared on television with pithy attacks on lawfare. … as fans of the original NBC series starring Trump from 2004 to 2017 (billed as ‘The Ultimate Job Interview’) will know, the winner is not always evident halfway through a season.” (05/15/24)
