And this morning you got some big news spoiler alert for anybody who has -- and the finale for the different as we about it can show you who's the big winner.
And they are here's Donald Trump -- the winner.
Of the Celebrity Apprentice 2000.
Whoa yeah go with the countries that very night why John Rich Donald I mean he did he -- of the messed up a little bit in the final didn't.
Well he actually did some great work in the final verdict can that he did for 7UP was incredible fact I think we're getting used that is this stable they could use that he used to -- really he really did a good job.
And over the course of -- Celebrity Apprentice we've raised well over ten million dollars so it's been it's been a great -- to charity.
That's great and congratulations to Jon -- was on our program on Friday predicting that he would win it he had he had -- -- -- -- but Mary -- by the -- it's unbelievable she's -- And smart GM Marlins until it's just.
She is smart and she's got -- -- he's got a heart like nobody this was probably the toughest decision I've ever had to make an apprentice so it's been.
It's been amazing.
Speaking of millions of dollars that you helped raised for charity.
I know there's there's an item -- news max over the last couple of days of talks about how just before you announce you're gonna drop out for president.
Steve Burke the CEO of NBC universal came to your office over a Fifth Avenue and said Donald we need jet.
We're gonna pay -- 120 million dollars.
For two years to continue doing these celebrity -- -- -- Well you know -- -- is thinking of Hollywood as you know when he came up personally and and he he really runs and BC and Comcast and everything else and he came up border Friday personally -- me any -- Donald we really want to show we really wanted -- you know I've been watching these entertainment programs where.
If you look everybody wants to be on television and your average and they can't get on.
What their shows -- being canceled and you're have a very top show.
A real success and I'm six I think that we together but it was sort of like a little crazy -- -- its other things also -- You know it's sort of interesting Mike Huckabee and myself but it.
I was watching what -- -- competing shows there is still competing -- could that -- -- that he just the way that's why do your show I don't do other factors.
I do love your show I was watching a competing show.
On Sunday that -- -- -- I won't mention names because and you would like that but what would Newt Gingrich was interviewed the pledge interview and frankly they put up the chart.
And it had my -- could be -- Donald trouble leading in the polls.
And that I'm announcing but.
You know there's so many competing factions here Hannity but -- yeah.
-- why did the right right particularly.
It's is that when it came down to -- -- 120 million dollars or run for president but.
You know -- start a reality starts right.
Well it's so typical of public opinion I -- -- -- show we raised tens of millions of dollars to charity in addition and you know I have fun doing it I like doing it however.
I am not seeing a lot out of the Republican candidates and that's a very sad thing because I'm telling you I -- people like Karl Rove saying it's going to be tough it's gonna beat up I really think the right candidate.
Can win this election because things are going very very badly in the country.
And I really believe that the right candidate could -- I believe I -- won I believe Mike Huckabee would have when I was a little surprised.
He got out.
But I I know I can tell -- I see you videotaped response.
You can't trade him by the way a lot of people thought I did that is granted it was ready Mike called -- opened Thursday.
He did could you do response one way or the other by god I don't guys have absolutely.
So is that the cameras over he was always under present -- that.
And it put it on the show and people said.
How does trump and -- -- -- get our McCain announced.
On Saturday -- he -- -- no script to liking it really uses script either -- it -- to -- just talk from the gods always gonna do.
Another businessman Dolly behind -- can.
Well I know nothing about at least seems like a nice guy I know nothing about -- and do you know like just he can't comment too much when -- got absolutely no idea -- of course it is but.
He certainly seems like a nice guy.
The president GO PP feel that Tim Pawlenty making it official he is in the race now as we mentioned her McCain is back in there.
There are a number of players that have yet to announce possibly Michelle Bachmann -- announced by the end of the week Gary Johnson.
Some of these lesser known candidates there's a wide open field anybody standing out today.
Well I'd rather really talk about the other is when they announce and the ones that have announced I just don't see -- -- at this point in time.
They're not going to be beating Obama.
And it -- is just -- for you personally.
Donald was a lot of it is did you -- attack from so many sites.
And you -- -- business interest in your name means something.
When you get -- concerns just run just that the criticism from so many different angles was hurting me you have -- -- -- brand.
Well I don't think so I mean -- been attacked all my life and I've got to all my life and I understand that that happens that you get -- and -- a bad day and then the next day you have a good day and that was okay but you know -- -- -- so much when you do this and and I'm not just talking about it topped television -- and this is a top show.
You give up so much what you do this.
And you know it was just a decision I made.
But -- more no stranger things have happened I'd look at these Republican candidates and I'm saying what's going -- This country cannot afford to lose this election you know -- -- -- -- of what I interest certainly I got back from New Hampshire.
Made -- speech we had the largest crowd ever in that area of New Hampshire it was an amazing situation.
And I came back and I said during that speech this is the most important election that the country's ever had.
Except and I didn't -- -- except George Washington and Abraham it's pretty simple.
So you're gonna say Donald Trump did.
You would not rule out a late entry -- nothing pans out for the GO thing.
I would not rule it out now I would not -- it -- I said I wouldn't do it I said I probably you know what didn't in so many different respects I see what's going on.
I can't rule out anything that country is so important -- so vital that we choose the right person.
And at this moment I don't see that person.
So if if let's say you know six months from now when you don't see that person you might walk away from all that NBC money and say I you know what I gotta run for president.
Well I'm not gonna ruin it again thank -- -- Let's sell it just talk about President Obama -- is an island they need some money.
You know there -- -- got to pay back their bills but it's really steep hill to climb should we help out Ireland.
Well no I think Germany should help out Ireland Germany got a lot of money they're selling this Mercedes that someone has slots because all over the place.
Definitely think Germany should not cost Ireland I don't think we should help out Ireland you know they went to different system -- not part of -- dollar that could be part of something else.
And -- in charge over there and you can't we go over and we want to bail them out.
And we're bailing out other countries that were giving Brazil which is sort of the richest station is two billion dollars to drill for oil I mean.
Honestly it's incredible.
What this country and.
We did Katrina billion dollars of debt to Brazil I'm -- to Egypt or -- We -- that's what we're giving money to Egypt -- -- is so insane.
You know really we have the potential to be a really great country again and -- that we're debtor nation let's face it we have such.
Great potential and to do that we have to become a rich station -- -- -- nation.
We have to become a rich but can you imagine bailing out Ireland.
Wouldn't -- -- sitting back smiling.
Yeah good point that we are -- group rich nation this morning because of John Rich now the official Celebrity Apprentice.
Crowned by you last night Donald Trump always a pleasure have a great week we'll see back here or maybe -- -- and I finally got I -- We want we have rears you know honestly you show history.
I doubt whether the way I'm not just say that these -- shows driven which by the way -- agrees.
Com but I just think you -- talk show host you panel that -- -- -- -- who don't script for that.
That's script I don't have -- sort of makes speeches I don't have Scripps and you say it from the heart and you say it hopefully from the brain in addition.
But I'm not a big believer in that and you know wouldn't.
Which you sit back to you read this speech that you watch the audience fall -- you -- you better not use Scripps.
It does take assert itself.
But look at Gary -- -- which is almost lost the reason these days even months plus the last six we opened at right we almost -- -- sort of -- well it.
But it -- great fired mr.
-- we thank you very much we'll see you next thank you all very much back.
