Bob Greenblatt — the chairman of NBC Entertainment since 2011 who was there during Trump’s last four seasons as the host of “The Apprentice” — said the Republican nominee is “toxic.” (RELATED: Donald Trump Once Wanted ‘The Apprentice’ To Be Black People Vs. White People)

“The sad state of affairs thanks to a pompous businessman turned reality TV star (whose show consistently ran LAST in its time period, by the way) who thinks speaking his mind is refreshing,” Greenblatt wrote on his private Facebook page this week. “It’s actually corrosive and toxic because his ‘mind’ is so demented.”

“His effect will unfortunately linger long after he’s been told to get off the stage.”


An insider said Greenblatt’s claim about poor ratings were false.

“Greenblatt can be credited as the man who helped make Trump more famous, and appeared at the time to be delighted by the ratings,” the source told Page Six. (RELATED: Arnold Schwarzenegger Is The New Host Of ‘The Apprentice’)
