NBC has decided to cut all ties with professional racist Donald Trump and related entities following Trump's recent remarks on immigration. These entities include Miss USA, Miss Universe, and Celebrity Apprentice — though the latter will likely continue in some capacity without Trump's participation. In a statement obtained by Deadline, NBC noted Trump's public deviation from the "cornerstones" of the network's core values:

At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values.

For those not following the beautifully rapid decline of Donald Trump, the ill-haired presidential candidate had this to say regarding immigration:

"The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems [with them]. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists."

Good riddance.


Donald Trump is planning to sue NBC in response to Monday's news of seemingly permanent severed ties, according to Deadline. In an oddly worded statement, Trump referenced both Brian Williams and his own campaign slogan:

As of today, Donald J. Trump is no longer affiliated with NBC. Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct— that is why our country is in serious trouble.
