Only Trump can go to China

Am I the only one who thinks this is funny? Communist mainland China will soon have its own version of "The Apprentice" — Donald Trump's reality TV tribute to capitalism. Trump will be the executive producer of the Chinese show, which will be hosted by Beijing property mogul Pan Shiyi, the South China Morning Post newspaper reported Sunday. The newspaper said China's version would closely follow the U.S. original, in which contestants compete for a job with Trump. Details of the deal are under negotiation. The show will run in direct competition with "Wise Man Takes All" — which was inspired by "The Apprentice" and backed by Trump's business partner, Vincent Lo Hong-sui. That show offers a cash prize of about $123,400.

Chinese Apprentice: "Fuck you! No money back! You buy as is! As is!"

I can't wait :)

Er... that's not racist, by the way! Really! I like chinese people. But they have some odd ideas about business dealings.

I hope they show it in the US, with subtitles. Prolly be much more ineteresting than the American version.

That could be kind of entertaining but they have to remember not to use key words like vote, democracy or freedom. Otherwise they will get more than just voted off the show.
