As to which is worse, driving drunk or evading taxes:
1. When did Donald Trump become God to decide?
2. our taxes help people live who don't have any money, in many ways so it could endanger lives.
His reasoning for firing Khloe K made him look positively ridiculous.
As for racism on this season's show:
No one can tell for sure if it exists on this show.
What we can know for sure is that whether it's one color picking on another color or vindictive cat-fighting women, neither is acceptable behavior.

I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.
we're supposed to be tolerant towards others and hope that they have learned from their mistake and the punishment that followed. It'd be like saying anyone who went to jail, can no longer beome a benefit to society.
He judged her for a mistake she made years ago and apparently she wasn't a repeat offender. How long does he get to hold these things against people? is there ever redemption? Shouldn't we judge on who they are now and not what they once were?
Also his brother was an alcoholc and Donald said that contributed to his death. I'm unaware of him being a victim of drunk driving though.
I suppose it's not really important. I just felt is was very unfair of him to fire her for that. It went against the show's premise and it was based on his bias.
^From what I remember, I believe one thing that Trump said at the time was that Khloe did not make him aware in advance of her situation. The way I interpreted it was that she didn't tell casting or whomever she needed to tell what had happened before filming began. If that's what happened, that is a big no-no and she deserved to be fired for it, IMO.
In terms of this season, I think it all comes down to egos, as it usually does. You have a group of contestants who are so used to being catered to and fawned over, that when they are suddenly one of many fish in a small pond, they can't take it. Some handle it better than others.
Star, Dionne, and Richard in particular just come off as Grade A narcissists. In terms of Star, there's a difference (IMO) between being confident and being arrogant. She's plain arrogant and very much has an air of "I'm better than everyone else." She may have a good education and a good professional background, but that does not make her a better person. She doesn't seem to get that, though. And from the previews of tomorrow's show that have been on the entertainment shows, it seems as if Dionne is still on her nasty kick. If she thinks she is being oh so tough and clever, the only person she is really making look like a fool on this season is herself.
Dionne, on the other hand, surprised the heck out of me. Who knew that behind her very long sucessful career, lovely voice and maturity, lies the heart of a ego-maniac??? I was really shocked when she decided that Star was not going to get special recognition without her getting some herself. When she refused to be replaced as the cashier on the previous episode, I chalked it up to her feeling she was just slow at catching on but given the time, she'd improve and be able to meet the challenge so I didn't judge her negatively for that.
Boy, was I wrong!
I wouldn't let her near any kind of digital anything!! A lot of people don't keep up with "new" technology....and I'm pretty sure she wasn't working with anything most people would classify as new and difficult....and I am talking calculators, computers (the most basic), etc. Whomever did the assigning blew that one, big time! They like to do that one-finger hunt-and-peck method, and their one finger is super-slow!

When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
Probably the only time she saw something like a cash register is when shewas on the other side, buying something and that probably didn't happen very often by herself. I think we forget that some of these people, just didn't live a regular life like we did. (but doesn't excuse her attitude)
I'm sure she considers herself "above" that kind of task.
Not me, I worked a cash register for many years and that was before it told you how much change to give back!! Back then, we had to do math!!
And then give out correct number of stamps (Blue chip, S & H Green) with the change.
