CNN anchor Erin Burnett noticed that President Donald Trump's Tuesday press conference resembled the staging used by Trump during his previous career as a reality-TV star.


"Tonight, Trump's reality show," Burnett narrated to set the scene.

"President Trump -- always the showman -- an executive producer at heart, did not waste an opportunity to turn this situation into political theater, complete with empty chairs and name cards for Senator Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi.

Burnett noted all of the similarities between the staging of today's photo op and the board room set from the NBC show The Apprentice.

"The only difference today was nobody was technically fired," Burnett noted.
