Donald Trump: “Stop with the fake boos, okay?”
Simon: “Okay, excuse me . . . hang on, hang on. Can I have your first name?”
Donald Trump: “You need to ask? Who do I look like?”


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


My name is Donald J. Trump. I’m seventy (70) years old. I consider myself a native New Yorker, but presently, I now live in Washington, D.C. due to work.

Most people, they look at Trump, they think he has everything, you know, successful businessman, reality star, President of the United States . . . but I’m seventy-years old. I’m not going to be here forever; I’m trying to make the world a better place and spread a little joy.

And that’s why I’m here.

I don’t think about the competition. The world is a garden, and I wanna shine in the sun and the spotlight.

The President of the United States on America’s Got Talent: you don’t get better than that.”


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Donald Trump: “We’re going to make America’s Got Talent great again.

It’s going to be huge.”

Howie Mandel: “You think you can win this competition?”
Donald Trump: “Oh, I know I can win it. I know I can win it.

Hold on. Can I just finish?

I am here on a mission of love. It’s true.”

Howie Mandel: This had better be good, or they’re gonna build a wall around you, and this audience is going to pay for it.”

Mel B: “So go for it. Good luck.”


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Simon: “Is that it?”
Donald Trump: Wait, there’s more.”


.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Donald Trump: “Folks, if I don’t make it through to the next round after that, this thing is rigged.”
Simon: “Okay, Howie.”
Howie Mandel: “Okay, I’ll have to be honest with you: it’s funny and I think in these times, this is the kind of performance we need, and you know what? You’ve won this audience over. You’re gonna be HUGE!

Donald Trump: “Thank you Howie.
Simon: Heidi.
Heidi Klum: See this is not about liking Donald Trump or not liking Donald Trump. This is America’s Got Talent, and you are talented. This is the first time that I really like Donald, I have to say.”
Simon: Mel.
Mel B: For me it was not enough good singing, and oh no.
Donald Trump: Can I say something, Mel? Many people say I’m the best singer in the history of the universe.

Simon: I mean for me, I think what you’re missing the point on Mel, is that this is something, trust me, we’re all going to remember. I’m with Howie: this is exactly the kind of originality and act we are looking for in this show.

Donald Trump: I love this show. Thank you, thank you.
