TRUMP biopic 'The Apprentice' faces MAJOR HURDLE - Talking Feds



A Trump coming of age biopic about his relationship with his mentor Roy Cohn entitled 'The Apprentice' may never reach theaters. Despite a glowing reception at Cannes, the film's producers are struggling to find a distributor willing to cross Trump.

Meanwhile, one of the film's financiers, disgraced NFL owner and Trump ally Dan Snyder, is trying to bury the film which he had thought would be a positive portrayal. - 06/19/2024.

1. I wonder if they could just get some really rich liberal to be the distributor? Someone willing to

take on the lawsuit? I looked it up and anyone can be a film distributor. Maybe a small film distributor could ask for donations?

3. Even a Go-Fund-Me I'm sure would raise millions for distribution. It would have all kids of publicity! nt

4. It certainly would! Even deluded TFG supporters would likely be interested since they'd see more of him!

Trump wants to be just like Putin.

Dan Snyders motives? He likes to censor the truth about a person who may help him in the future? Slime birds flock together? He has no integrity?

Harry’s got a real nice picture behind him. Distracted me.

6. I tend to think that it may be distributed the more publicity it gets. TFG has made countless enemies with good reason

Maybe as a double feature with the Epstein nonsense. MAGAs will stand in line for hours to cheer on their chosen pervert.

Unlike some wavering independents such showings will never change my vote. Boggles my mind that some folks are thinking about not voting for trump because he’s been convicted of 34 FELONIES AND COUNTING. What the hell is there to think about?

8. There is nothing to think about, he was not qualified to begin with, and continued to prove it until this day

He stole classified documents, jeopardizing our national security, and attempted to overthrow the government he's now running to lead - and is now a convicted felon! Who would vote for that??

Back in 2016 I finally quit watching the news since it was all about this offensive blowhard to the exclusion of those I thought of as legitimate candidates. And I couldn't wait for the election to be over so we'd never have to see or hear from him again!

And now that I'm hearing about the lead up from Liz Cheney's book, it was definitely worse than we knew. Through his commissioned election investigations and his dozens of failed lawsuits, he knew he lost and lost badly - yet he continued to spew his blatant lies to the American public and continues to lie every time he opens his mouth. And now that he's finally a convicted felon, he should no longer be eligible to run - and it's long past time that he finally faces the other more serious charges and trials that he's managed to delay.
