Trump’s a card

Plastic? We thought it was a woodland creature: You’ve seen the last of Donald Trump on “Celebrity Apprentice,” as NBC on Monday cut ties with the GOP presidential candidate over his derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants.

The only way this gets better is the plastics fabricator that manufactures The Donald’s hair announces that it also is no longer working with him.

Surfing the vast cultural wasteland: Premiering on CBS tonight is “Zoo,” a new series in which the animals of the world suddenly go on murderous rampages against humans.

Pet owners had better keep an eye on Fido and Fluffy. And Donald Trump had better keep an eye on the thing on his head.

That has all the earmarks of being a run: Stock markets in the United States and around the world shuddered Monday as Greece, apparently careering toward default on its debt to the Germans, closed its banks amid long lines at ATMs.

But don’t worry, Greece. Old Man Potter will pay you 50 cents on the dollar — cash!
