Erin: I have a problem with you and Stephanie having a problem with John. Yes, he dominated the negotiations but, first, you asked him to come along. Secondly, why didn’t you DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? Drives me batty when people complain about a co-worker after the fact when it does absolutely no good.
Prediction: Eventually, Trump and the gang will realize you’re still there, kind of like what happened with Ereka in season one. She was Project Manager and they remembered they hadn’t fired her yet. You’ll be the same way.
Stephanie: See above. If you didn’t like John’s style, you should have done something about it. Complain to him. Call Chris. Something. And yeah, I know you’ve been taken to task for being negative, but as I’ve said before, being negative to cause change is one thing. Being negative just to complain is another.
Prediction: It will surprise absolutely no one when I say that you will be fired for your poor attitude and negativity.
Angie: You did a good job with the set and production, I suppose. It occurs to me that we’ve never seen you do a whole lot.
Prediction: You’ll be another one who gets fired because there’s no one else that should go. They’ll probably give some asinine excuse like “you’re too old.”
Chris: You got rid of Craig, which was a good move, and Tana, which wasn’t. You should have gotten rid of Angie, who has yet to show any talent aside from answering the phone.
Your problem on the task was not that you delegated the negotiations, it’s that you had NO IDEA what was going on with them. Huge difference. Had you gotten regular reports from Erin and Stephanie and known the kind of ass John was making of himself, you might have nipped it in the bud. Or at least been able to say why John did a bad job in the boardroom. Yes, John got fired (mainly because John and Erin convinced Trump not to fire you), but you’ve proven yourself a bad leader, which didn’t do you any favors. Dead man walking.
Prediction: As with Stephanie, it will be no shock when you are fired for blowing a gasket in the boardroom. Either that, or you’ll be fired for something stupid like chewing tobacco. Yes, it’s a bad hobby, but it’s an idiotic thing for Trump to be focusing on, especially considering some of the harassing activity that went on this week that got no play.
John: Boy, you had quite the turnaround, huh? Here’s a hint for you – people, especially celebrities, want to hear about themselves, not you. And if you’re going to completely take over a task, you might want to do a good job. One might think you would have learned that from Kristen a few weeks ago, but then it looks like learning anything from a woman is totally against your nature. Geez, what kind of moron would have a celebrity say that they wanted to offer a BIGGER charity package and then talk them out of it?
I still can’t believe you had the nerve to call your teammates “fluffers” on national television! How you managed to hide such a raging misogynistic streak for so long is beyond me. Then again, you’re a musician, and you said your proudest moment was meeting Gene Simmons – both HUGE negatives to me, thanks – so I’m not putting anything by you. Had I KNOWN you were a musician I would never have bothered with you in the first place. Good luck in your dream of being just like your idol Gene – a laughably failed businessman who offends everyone in his path. At least you’re shooting high.
