DONALD TRUMP'S CELEBRITY APPRENTICE
exploits carriage horses - please take action
February 15, 2008,
from Susan D.:
Last night's Apprentice (NBC-Mark Burnett Productions) aired, and unfortunately the job given to would-be apprentices by R.E. Tycoon Donald Trump was to see which team could make the most money off of NYC Carriage Horse rides!!!!
If any of the celebrity apprentices objected to the way the horses are treated or conditions they are in, it was not aired. It seems the celebrities are woefully ignorant and need to be educated about horses.
It gets worse, Steven Baldwin who is a celebrity apprentice on the show called in his brother Billy for help, at which point Marilu Henner used Billy Baldwin's name to solicit rides, here is what she said to passersby for the show: "take the most romantic ride of your life with Billy Baldwin!" Remember how Alec Baldwin spoke out against the carriage industry? I wonder how he felt about this, he was NOT on the show although he has appeared on other Apprentice shows without the horse issue.
The worst moment of the show came when country singer Trace Adkins who was team captain for this horrible project said to the camera "My horse is slow, near a heart attack, when he comes back around I'll shove a bottle-rocket up his ass!" Although Adkins was going for the laugh, it is impossible to accept this cruel remark from someone who should know better, he either knows nothing about horses at all or is incredibly cruel or both!
