Variety Says Trump to Remain Executive Producer of Celebrity Apprentice

In today's epsiode of "lowering the optics of the American Presidency," Variety is reporting that President Elect Donald Trump will keep a credit on Celebrity Apprentice, despite the ties that the show's network, NBC, supposedly cut with Trump http://www.forbes.com/sites/dorothypomerantz/2015/06/29/nbc-dumps-trump/#6ed9cccd1c82">after comments he made about Mexican immigrants in 2015.

The show is produced by MGM Studios, giving NBC an arms-length deal with the incoming commander in chief; Variety speculates that he'll continue to receive a five-figure payout per episode.
