Donald Trump under fire from 'Celebrity Apprentice' crew member

While areas of New York and New Jersey are faced with a gas shortage, Donald Trump and his caravan of "Celebrity Apprentice" transports are accused of getting preferential treatment at the pumps.

The accusation comes from an apparent crew member on the show, who sent an anonymous e-mail to Gawker regarding "a certain blonde haired blow-hard who has an obsession with our current president" and his fleet of 18 passenger vans which the show was driving from Manhattan to Yonkers.

"We got to the BP gas station ... and there was a huge car line for it. Since we didn't want to attract attention to caravan we split up and parked nearby waiting for the word to move to the station," the tipster wrote. He continued to describe how the show got a police escort to gain access to the gas station while blocking out others.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy's devastation, gas shortages have resulted in long lines and people waiting hours to fill up strictly rationed gas. NBC had no comment.

If this story is genuine, this doesn't serve to improve Trump's public image, which has taken quite a tumble in recent weeks including yesterday’s post-election Twitter rant. At the very least, it certainly flies in the face of the charitable theme of "Celebrity Apprentice."
