    Interesting thing to say.

    Anyway, is it just another licensing deal?

    Mark Burnett owns the show and licenses it to NBC.

    He doesn't have to. It's what his contract stipulated. I get royalties for stuff I had a part of years ago but never owned a single portion of.

    I guess that's one way to nominate a replacement for Scalia.

    He was certainly collecting royalties like many actors in TV or movie series even after they leave the sequels to somebody else. Seriously, it's not a big deal and not different than collecting money from penguin. Actually I am glad, it should make him less corruptible.

    This is gold. You accuse Trump of being a corrupt/profiting president before he even has the job. Talk about bias...

    Yes his kids have profited from it already his hotel is benefiting from the secret service camping there his hotels are getting booked because he is going to be president. yes he has not isolated himself and it is going to come back to haunt him. the day after his kid sat in with his meeting with the Japanese prime minister his daughter announced a deal with a Japanese company financed by the bank of japan. He is very much profiteering from it right now at this time.

    Because what he's doing is a conflict of interest. For a person who was keen on draining the swamp, he's been adding to it. Let's not forget him berating opponents for being weak and whining. His Twitter rants are borderline childish and on the level of a teenage girl having a fit because daddy didn't want to fork over $500 for a Fendi purse.

    Nice, now to get to Trump you also insult the prime minister of Japan. Very nice.

    Its hardly a stretch to expect Trump to be the exact same man he has always been.

    If he wants to do this instead of golfing (ie. Obama), sure, but it shouldn't interfere with his official duties.

    Again with this nonsensical suggestion that Obama's time on the course is somehow unusual or excessive for a President...

    Right how did I insult him? Trump was the one that brought he's daughter who just happened to announce a new deal with Japan a day later. I know it does not mean a thing.

    Because the obvious consequence of your post is that he either took part in a small time crook scheme or that he was played like a fool.
    Or simply, the deal was already in the stove and Ivanka simply met him to tell him how glad she is to work with a Japanese company as a form of courtesy.

    good for him. so he's an actual businessman who knows how to get stuff one. perhaps if Obamafail actually would have spent any time in the real world making deals, employing people and doing something besides live off only public service he'd have had a clue.

    Define your view of draining the swamp vs what trump defined it as please. So far he's done pretty much exactly what he's told you and everyone that voted for him what he was going to do.

    The last thing this country needs is people in those positions that have had little to no real experience or success in life. We need people who can bring transferable skills to the table not more politicians.

    LOL at the pay for play comment after Trump "hosted" foreign dignitaries at his new hotel in DC and spooked several into thinking that if they came to DC, they needed to stay there as to not "offend."

    Please define what having personal success in life, be it from self-made success or as an heir to said success, and how it defines the next four years? The current administration's cabinet, the prior administration's cabinet, and ones before it always had people who had great self-made or otherwise success in life, and were incredibly wealthy.

    Trump's call to draining the swamp was to rid DC of the bureaucratic, red tape ******** that got nothing done, but made politicians wealthier and immune from action by the people. Tell me how, by having the wealthiest cabinet in US and possibly world history, that they're better off tackling the country over the next four years? What do these people bring to the table aside from self made or inherited wealth, which isn't uncommon for their positions? Or their lack of political expertise? Is that what draining the swamp meant? The majority of flyover country voted for Trump. Fair enough. But exactly what were these often poor whites thinking? That they'd get whatever Trump promised or that because he's bringing in self-made or inherited wealth, that the success would trickle down to them? Or because these cabinet members could think back to when they were the average Joe, such as Bannon, that they too can be successful one day?
