Fox News is said to be in negotiations with President Donald Trump to co-produce a reality show tied to his re-election campaign. The program, tentatively titled “The Emissary”, will pit selected contributors to the Republicans party as they compete against each other in various challenges modeled after the reality show “The Apprentice”.
In one proposed challenge the players will compete to get sponsors to bid for the opportunity to promote products that can be branded “As Seen In The White House”. The winning items will be displayed in the Oval Office, the Brady Press Briefing Room and throughout public areas. “Some examples of sponsors our participants may approach could be drug companies, evangelists and Kool Aid,” said a spokesperson who spoke off the record as the contracts have yet to be finalized.
Another project being considered is the selling of time shares to buyers, or ‘Ambassadors’, at Trump properties proposed to be built in Pyongyang, North Korea; Ankara, Turkey and Moscow. “These are, of course, only make believe locations,” said the spokesperson, “with imaginary floor plans, permits and tentative opening dates scheduled sometime mid to late 2021.”
Although Trump is quoted as once saying that reality television “was for the bottom feeders of society” he now believes that without those viewers he wouldn’t be president.
The President will be joined by co-hosts Ivanka and Melania Trump to announce the winner at the Republican Party’s National convention in April of 2020.
