I don’t even really watch reality TV. But if this is the well we’re drawing presidential candidates from, I am pretty convinced that Donald Trump, who has clung on in the public eye in part because of his reality TV show “The Apprentice,” is not the best choice.

Thus begins Nancy Kaffer’s latest column with the Detroit Free Press, titled, “8 Reality Show Stars Who’d be Better Presidents Than Trump”.

Among the reality TV stars Kaffer considers; RuPaul, Tim Gunn, and the Barefoot Contessa.
