Wondering who got kicked off Celebrity Apprentice Sunday? See it here.

celebrityapprentice-logo.jpgAs many noted on Twitter Sunday night, it was good to see that, when President Obama rebuffed "birthers" like Donald Trump by saying he had better things to focus on, he was talking about capturing and killing the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.

On a night of many ironies -- it was the 8th anniversary of President Bush's ill-fated "Mission Accomplished" speech; as a candidate, President Obama vowed to take just such action -- the announcement also pre-empted the end of Sunday's episode of Trump's showcase unscripted series Celebrity Apprentice (it also took wind out of some press leaks saying that Trump had decided to run for president).

So, in case you just have to know what happened, here it is. I'll have a longer essay on the implications of this -- including asking why Trump kept asking whether NeNe Leakes was violent, when he didn't seem to care about such issues when Meatloaf went on a screaming tirade against fellow showbiz burnout Gary Busey -- tomorrow or the next day.
