His Happy Place

Trump wants to spend his whole life watching a well-produced and well-edited teevee show starring Trump which makes Trump look good and his brain worms are so advanced that he can't distinguish between the making of it and the edited version.
Since taking office in early 2017, the president has confided to close associates that he misses hosting The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice on NBC, the reality-TV staples he left behind to become the Republican Party standard-bearer and then the leader of the free world. Trump has waxed nostalgic about how he created what he sees as the greatest thing reality television has ever seen. Two sources who’ve spoken to him recall Trump saying that he will perhaps one day revisit the medium.

And it may not just be fits of nostalgia.

According to three people with knowledge of the situation and another source close to Trump, Apprentice creator Mark Burnett and the president have sporadically kept in touch, mostly over the phone, since Trump won the election. The pair remain friends, these sources say, and have discussed reviving their creative partnership, pitching each other details on potential TV projects to be filmed after the Trump presidency.

The Apprentice must have been the greatest thing that ever happened to him and he should just quit and return to it.
