Carol Leifer Fired by Trump

Stand-up comic Carol Leifer got the boot in the premiere of Celebrity Apprentice’s second season. Leifer, who is best known as a television writer on shows such as Saturday Night Live and Seinfeld, left the boardroom upset and called her celebrity teammates “dumb.”

In the first episode, the celebrities were split into two teams: men versus women. Leifer was grouped with stars like Cyndi Lauper, Sharon Osbourne and Holly Robinson Peete. The men’s group consisted of public figures like rocker Bret Michaels and former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. The first task was to raise the most amount of money running a burger joint.

Leifer’s team lost the challenge and entered Donald Trump’s boardroom. During the deliberation, Leifer’s name was thrown around by her group as the weakest team member. When project manager Cyndi Lauper couldn’t pick two teammates to leave behind, Trump told all the women to stay seated. Trump then announced that he was left with no choice but to fire Leifer. Before leaving, however, Leifer convinced Trump to donate money from his personal pocket to her chosen charity, the North Shore Animal League.

Celebrity Apprentice airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
