Trump "Apprentices" Speak Out - You're fired! That's the message from a number of former 'Apprentice' candidates who have spoken out denouncing Donald Trump's presidential campaign for being one filled with sexism, xenophobia, racism, and violence. Trump fired back describing his apprentices as "failing wannabes" only interested in the limelight. In a MetroFocus exclusive, Tara Dowdell, who appeared on season three of The Apprentice, tells us why she believes the media mogul turned politician isn't fit for the highest office.

Modine, Tribeca and "Super Sex" - Veteran actor Matthew Modine has starred in acclaimed films as "Vision Quest" "Full Metal Jacket" and in the Showtime series "Weeds," but for this year's Tribeca Film Festival, Modine has stepped behind the camera. Director of the short-film "Super Sex," Modine helps tell the story of two siblings who found a very special birthday gift for their aging dad. He joins us to talk about the film and his experience making it, especially about directing his daughter who stars in the short-film.

Catholic Priest Investigates Holocaust Killings - In honor of the upcoming Passover holiday, we are bringing you a different story about Jewish history that would have been largely forgotten if not for a Catholic priest. Father Patrick Desbois has spent over a decade traveling across Eastern Europe in search of mass graves used by Nazi Germany killing squads to bury some 2 million Jews -- or roughly a third of those who died during the Holocaust. We sit down with Desbois to talk about his work and his goal: to learn from the past and stop this kind of genocide from happening again.
