Have you ever wondered why most conservatives aren't comedians and entertainers? A video produced by the Republican National Committee that was scheduled to air during their convention in August should easily answer that question.
When the RNC was forced to cancel the first day of their convention due to the threat of Hurricane Isaac, that also meant that a vignette they filmed starring former presidential hopeful Donald Trump would never see the light of day. Or so they thought until NBC's Today Show obtained the never-before-seen video and showed clips of it... well, today.
In a spoof of his role on The Apprentice, Trump sits behind his desk as he conducts a review of Barack Obama's presidency in front of an Obama stand-in. Clips are shown of Obama saying that the private sector is fine, and Trump mentions that the President refuses to take blame for the national debt. After driving home his points with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer, Trump declares that the American people want results and proceeds to issue his trademark catchphrase, "You're fired!"
Although Today reached out to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign for their comments on the video, they did not respond to NBC. I guess at this point, Romney's camp is more concerned about other videos making the rounds this week.
