This past Sunday, the great state of New Jersey (lol) played host to three of the biggest names in media and entertainment.

President-Elect Donald Trump, WME head cheese and new owner of UFC Ari Emanuel, and Nostradumbass himself.

Though I didn’t have much choice, since I already live here.

Why Trump was talking shop with his former rep and longtime Democrat is unknown, but sources with knowledge of the powwow — as reported by CNN — claim Emanuel wanted to “discuss some concerns he had.”

Trump is also a friend of UFC President Dana White, who spoke at the Republican National Convention earlier this year to stump on behalf of the business mogul and former TV personality.

Plans for a cameo at UFC 205 a few weeks back in New York City did not come to fruition, likely based on the volatile climate in the “Big Apple” as protestors continue to speak out against the 2016 Presidential Election.
