NBC Chief Slams Donald Trump as 'Toxic' and 'Demented'

We know what Trump won't do when he loses/drops out.

Though NBC was once home to Donald Trump, the GOP candidate's warmly welcomed days at the network are gone, according to chairman Bob Greenblatt.

Two weeks after the executive publicly told a group of reporters at the Television Critics Association tour in Beverly Hills that Trump "would never be back on Celebrity Apprentice, as long as I'm here," he is slamming the reality star–turned–politician as "toxic" and "demented."

"The sad state of affairs thanks to a pompous businessman turned reality TV star (whose show consistently ran LAST in its time period, by the way) who thinks speaking his mind is refreshing," the chairman penned in a Facebook post in response to a New York Times op-ed titled "Donald Trump is Making America Meaner."

"It's actually corrosive and toxic because his 'mind' is so demented; and his effect will unfortunately linger long after he's been told to get off the stage," he continued, Page Six first reported.

A source confirms to PEOPLE that the post was a personal post on Greenblatt's private page, which is not open to the public.

2. But for purposes of ratings and ad revenue, he'd still like to see the election be a horse race.

3. I think that's no longer true of most media moguls.

 

And I bet that Donny's antics continue to bring in big bucks.
