Ever noticed...

on "The Apprentice" all the toady wannabees unfailingly address The Donald as "Mister Trump"? Such late Victorian courtesy hasn't been seen on American television since the late lamented "Mary Tyler Moore Show" went off the air.
Even on the worst temp jobs, I was always on a first name basis with the vulgarians and thugs who employed me. No matter how routinely exploitive they might've been, it was always decorously informal, first names only please.
But then Trump's preposterous ego is a carnival freakshow all it's own, attended upon by its own retinue of ambitious frauds and sycophants.
