Comcast facing possible Trump backlash as Inauguration Day approaches

After touting a steady stream of synergistic benefits from its NBCUniversal division in recent quarterly earnings reports, Comcast could be facing an unanticipated challenge from being tied to the programming conglomerate. Along Donald Trump’s inexplicable march to Jan 20’s inauguration, NBCU has found itself at odds with the president-elect. In short, NBCU has a terrible relationship with an incoming president who seems to hold a grudge.

A decade ago, Trump starred in a hit reality show for NBC, The Apprentice. But last summer, the network’s top entertainment executive, Robert Greenblatt, made a private Facebook post that became public, not calling out Trump by name but presumably referring to the then far-right presidential candidate. “It’s actually corrosive and toxic because his ‘mind’ is so demented; and his effect will unfortunately linger long after he’s been told to get off the stage,” Greenblatt said.
