Remember back in December of 2011 when Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump got together, and Trump announced with much fanfare that:
“We’re going to be picking 10 young wonderful children and make them ‘apprenti.’ We’re going to have a little fun with it and it’s going to be something that’s going to prove results.”
CorporateMal.com remembers it all quite clearly, as it seemed like an absurd publicity stunt by one of the least charitable rich people in the country. Nonetheless, I guess helping ten kids is better than nothing. Unfortunately, over a year later we can find no evidence of Trump starting an actual apprenticeship program to help anyone, anywhere.
So Donald what’s the good word? Were you in fact lying back in 2011 about starting a program for impoverished youth? If not, when is this program going to start? You clearly aren’t that busy as you’ve found more than enough time to continue with your thinly veiled racist claims regarding President Obama’s place of birth, sue Bill Maher over a joke, and pretend that beauty pageants are still even remotely relevant. You aren’t exactly spending your days finding a cure for cancer are you?
BTW, just in case you are confused, it is ok to help others when cameras are not present and there is no potential for personal financial gain. Millions of Americans manage to commit acts of charity and kindness in anonymity everyday and it actually works out pretty well for everyone.
