Don't Support Donald Trump and Boycott the Sponsors of NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice!

    1. Petition by

      Clarence Warren

      San Diego, CA

Donald Trump in recent weeks has been fanning the flames of racism, xenophobia, and division at a time when this county needs more cooperation and collaboration between its people.  This country will not offer creative solutions with the "birther rhethoric" that Trump has been supporting in recent weeks against President Obama.

In a recent interview on NBC Today Show, Donald Trump, the creator of "Celebrity Apprentice" said,  “A certificate of live birth is not even signed by anybody. I saw his. I read it very carefully. It doesn’t have a serial number. It doesn’t have a signature.”  He also claimed that the Kenyan step-grandmother of the President Obama observed his birth in Kenya.   These statements have been proven bogus by the Hawaii state officials who have consistently stated that President Obama was born in Hawaii. 

Donald is simplly aligning himself with the most outrageous and vociferous elements of Republican Party and Tea Party, so he can promote his own brand and increase the ratings on his TV show "Celebrity Apprentice".  In the recent weeks, the ratings for program have skyrocketed with constant support of the "Birther Rhetoric" and the Tea Party Agenda.  The sponsors of  "The Celebrity Apprentice" are directly supporting the divisive rhetoric of Donald Trump and contributing  toward the negative and hostile political climate in this country. The corporate sponsors of  "Celebrity Apprentice" are  Enterprise Rental Car Company, Clorox Bleach Company,  Sprint-Nextel Cellphones, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and The  Walt Disney Company, and Groupon.

Support for this petition lets the sponsors know that viewing public will not buy or support companies who are actively supporting the Donald Trump's "birther rhetoric" and "politics of fear" in this country. 

The signers of this petition recommend that corporate sponsors of "Celebrity Apprentice should withdraw their commercial support from the Trump's program or demand that he apologize to American people for his foolish support of the "birther agenda" on the public airwaves.

It should be noted by petition signers that Groupon has publicly retracted its online advertising on "Celebrity Apprentice" as of 4-28-11. Please see the following link: http://www.groupon.com/blog/.

      Please update me via email on the status of this campaign AND updated lists of companies advertising on Apprentice. I plan to email all companies to advise them that I will not buy their products. Thanks.

      I will not watch any of NBC shows until Donald Trump is fired. Donald Trump's comments are unacceptable, and NBC should be embarrassed to be associated with him. While I don't watch the Apprentice. There are shows that I will miss:

      The Biggest Loser

      Parenthood

      The Event

      Law and Order

      I will also write to the sponsors to let them know that I will not buy their products until, the show is cancelled or they stop sponsoring the show.

      It is positively no skin off of my nose to boycott each and every sponsor this multiply-bankrupt xenophobic bigot has. He now has extended his reach toward poisoning what little political discourse this country has left, and is a disgrace. I only regret that he cannot be stripped of his citizenship, because he makes the rest of us look like a bunch of horses' hindquarters. You, his sponsors, should be ashamed of yourself, and I hope this petition is the wake-up call you obviously need.
