Oh for goodness sake! Now Donald Trump and his band of TV thieves settle out of court after being sued for theft: For stealing the idea for their TV show (and a bad show at that) from some poor unsuspecting sap. Unless this poor unsuspecting sap fought back against Trump and his fellow thieves by suing for what was rightfully his!Donald Trump will probably "fire" his lawyers now for not making sure the poor unsuspecting sap didn't just go away. Oh, yes! Making someone just go away is a little bit for difficult for Trump these days now that his "muscle" - famed firebombing, illegally wiretapping, intimidating PI Anthony Pellicano - is in jail.
