Donald Trump Wants Credit Where Credit Is Due

December 30th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Donald Trump got his skivvies in a twist when a former “Apprentice” contestant failed to mention the show (and, er, him) on her work bio.

The nerve!

Rebecca Jarvis, a fourth season contestant, scored a job with CNBC and filled her bio with layers upon layers of fluffy “unimportant” drivel, but no “Apprentice” shout out.

Trump wasn’t going to take this sitting down, and promptly penned her a letter expressing his disgust. According to Page Six, it went a bit like this:

“In your very nice . . . bio, which airs on CNBC, many facts are
mentioned about you, some very unimportant. But the only thing you don’t mention is that you were on ‘The
Apprentice,
‘ which is the sole factor leading to your job at CNBC. How
quickly we forget.”

Sole factor! Did you hear that Rebecca? You practically owe Donald your first born! You’d be filling sodas at the local Dairy Queen without him.

In response, CNBC put The Donald in his place by saying the show only got her a “courtesy interview” (ouch) but Rebecca’s knowledge of banking and journalism got her everything else.

    Trump does have an ego, but in this case he is absolutely right. Do you really think for one minute that CNBC would have hired her if she wasn’t on the apprentice even with her background? Lets be real
