Can we enjoy All-Star Celebrity Apprentice given Donald Trump's (further) descent into buffoonery?

We've long known that Donald Trump is a colossal blowhard. But as it turns out, he fronts a sometimes maddening but consistently entertaining reality competition product in the form of the long-running Apprentice franchise.

But will The Don's exploits over the last few years in the world of fringe-y far right politics push viewers away from the upcoming All-Star Celebrity Apprentice edition (it premieres Sunday, March 3rd, on NBC)?

To take a quick look back, Donny T inserted himself into the already crack potty Republican presidential primary foray by "suggesting" that President Barack Obama – meaning the guy that the people of the United States voted into the highest public office in the land in 2008 – was not actually born in the United States. Of course, he didn't say this outright, but instead said a lot of shady-ish things like, if what my investigators are telling me is true – and they are telling me a LOT – then this could mean we have to replace the current president with me… Or some such.

And if that's not enough, after President Obama soundly embarrassed Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2011 (on the same night Seal Team Six took out Osama bin Laden, no less!), things eventually devolved to the point with Trump threatening to sue Bill Maher over clearly satirical comments that the Real Time host made.

So memo to Mr. Trump: I still enjoy The Apprentice in its numerous iterations, and have been a loyal viewer for many years (I am one of the few people who sat through the one-off Martha Stewart edition, for instance). So please don't make it harder for me and those of my general ilk to enjoy the reality programming that you are affiliated with. Thanks in advance, my man.

In the meantime, I will do the best I can to forget the politics and embrace the ego-driven train wreck that embodies the best that Celebrity Apprentice puts on offer.

And, let's face it: that should be pretty easy with "all-stars" like Gary Busey, Dennis Rodman, Stephen Baldwin, and Omarosa in the mix. And, to be perfectly fair, I honestly will enjoy seeing the likes of strong (and mostly sane) players Trace Adkins, Penn Jilette, Lil Jon, former winner Bret Michaels, and Dee Snider back in action again.

Just when I thought I was out…
