View Printable version of this article
Carolyn and George discuss Zip, trying to figure out what it’s supposed to be and whether it’s a male or a female. There’s no definitive answer. Trump asks Rebecca for her opinion; Rebecca says that they should have done some branding. Alla speaks up that this is the first time Rebecca has said that. George agrees that she’s only saying that because he, Carolyn, and Trump already said it. Rebecca says, “Okay, fine” (code for, “I can’t argue with that so I’ll change the subject”) and states that the team was disorganized in their concepts and didn’t go back to their research. They should have hit the 18-49 demographic.
Carolyn wonders if Rebecca said that the mascot was targeting too young of a demographic. The other women say she didn’t. Alla repeats that Rebecca has never said any of this stuff before. Rebecca protests that she said many times that they needed to hit the 18-49 demographic but no one listened to her. She thinks this is a result of bad leadership. Kristi says that Felisha was a great PM. Felisha backs this up by saying that they made all of their deadlines. For the first time, they were ahead of schedule for every deadline.
Trump asks Toral why the team lost. Toral says that the other women are fine at event planning but not at strategic marketing. The others say that Toral’s contribution to the task was nonexistent. Felisha wonders if Toral actually believes the things she says, because everything she’s been saying in the Boardroom has pretty much been wrong. “I think you stole someone’s diploma,” Felisha says. Ouch! Hitting her where it hurts – her education. She says that Toral only stepped up at the 11th hour because Carolyn was around. She and Toral start talking over each other until Toral finally tells Felisha that she was volatile, emotional, and lacked credibility. She thinks Trump should fire Felisha.
The conversation turns to Toral’s refusal to wear the costume and her claim that it was against her religion. Marshawn says very nicely that as a “woman of color,” she understands Toral’s position on cultural issues, but she herself would have worn the costume if she’d been asked to. I like Marshawn more every week. Probably because she’s dignified and professional but doesn’t come across as a snob, like some people who will remain nameless. Trump tells Toral that since the point is to win the task, she should have done whatever was necessary to ensure victory. Silly Trump. Don’t you know that the point is to cause drama until you become so ridiculous you have to be fired?
Trump asks Rebecca if she’s been “seduced” by Toral’s education. That trampy education. Always there with a candlelit dinner and a bottle of champagne. Trump wonders if Toral would have been fired last week if she hadn’t gone to Wharton. No, because Rebecca didn’t exclude her from the Boardroom because she went to Wharton. She excluded her because she didn’t want to lose the only friend she has. Who else is she going to paint her nails with and braid hair with? I mean, besides Mark. Rebecca says that Toral has a strong background in corporate business. Trump says that might be true, but that’s all she has going for her.
We hear Toral’s claims about Felisha saying she was a marketing genius again. Trump thinks that Toral keeps dealing in half-truths. He asks Rebecca if she agrees that sometimes people make bad decisions. Now it’s Rebecca’s turn to decide if Toral is worthy of staying. George asks Toral why she didn’t step up. Trump doesn’t think that Toral made a case for being PM. Toral says, “Okay, fine,” but she’s not the reason they lost. Trump turns this over to Marshawn, who doesn’t think Toral contributed.
We get the costume discussion again and Toral telling Trump to consider who’s telling him she should be fired. He points out that even Carolyn and George are against her. Trump says that a lot of the problems Toral has to deal with wouldn’t have been there if she’d been the project manager. Maybe not, but they still would have lost and she’d still get fired. They’d just find something else to nitpick. George thinks that Toral’s strategy is to stay under the radar. She should have gotten the message last week and fought to be PM in order to preserve her reputation. Rebecca finally tells Trump that Toral should be fired.
Trump is so disappointed in Toral that he’s not even going to have Felisha pick people to come back to the boardroom. (It doesn’t matter – she probably only would have brought Toral back anyway.) Toral is fired.
In the cab, Toral says that she wouldn’t have worn the costume if Trump had begged her to. Yeah, like Trump would ever beg for anything. Like he would ever have to beg for anything. Toral says that she takes her dignity seriously and wouldn’t wear the costume for a million dollars. She continues that if stupid people make stupid decisions, they’ll wind up with a stupid product. If you stand out from those people, you’ll be in the minority.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
