Trump sends Hydra back to the suite, where they can watch the ensuing events. Piers asks, and Trump reports that he won another $51,300 for his charity, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. This brings Piers’ season total to $116,300!
Trump probes for the reasons Empresario lost. Trump asks Omarosa and she brings up Baldwin’s absence of sales. Back in the suite, Hydra grudgingly acknowledge how Omarosa is trying to get Trump’s focus elsewhere.
Baldwin tells of Carol scooping up his client. Trump asks if they were fairly scooped up. From what we know of Trump, I shudder to think what he considers “unfairly scooped up…” Maybe if they were forced to change galleries at gunpoint? Trump doesn’t really buy Baldwin’s complaint as valid.
Trump asks them if he should fire two people. Maybe he’s trying to get some emotion out of them, because they are beaten down flat. Of course, they think one is enough.
Omarosa tells the tale of Piers’ threat to hit Baldwin, without mentioning Baldwin’s questionable behavior. It’s agreed that Piers was fired up today, and Omarosa admits that she provided the fuel to that fire.
Ivanka asks if, looking back, Omarosa ought to have handled things differently and not fired up Piers so much. Omarosa replies that she was greatly insulted (I won’t repeat the names, but Piers says he never said the worst of them)… then, she admits she said some vile things, too. She quietly adds, “because I know some things about him.”
Prompted to flesh that out, she says, “He’s in the closet.” Whuzzat?? Her reasoning is that he always wants the guys to be taking their shirts off. For those of you keeping score at home, this is yet another great way to guarantee you will be fired in the real world!
Trump asks if Piers wants to come back and defend himself. Yup!
Piers hustles to the Boardroom and strides up to the Empresario side of the table. He leans over, kisses Trace on the cheek and says, “Trace, you’re a beautiful cowboy!” and walks out again. Ha! Classic moment, that!
Almost everyone laughs, but Omarosa half-heartedly pretends she thought Piers was going to hit her. Baldwin has a smile he’s trying to suppress, but Trace is visibly quite upset, to the point where Trump actually has to tell him it was a joke! My estimation of Trace just slid a little.
Trump asks Trace who he should fire. Trace takes a long time to say that all he did was make two prearranged sales (meaning Omarosa exaggerated her sale) and is disappointed in his own results.
Trump turns to his kids for opinions. Don Junior is disappointed in Steven, plus he notes this is Omarosa’s third loss as a PM. Ivanka says Omarosa acted defeated ever since she came into the Boardroom. Trump agrees with Ivanka, and she’s fired.
Let me type that again. Omarosa (perhaps the inspiration for the stylized picture that accompanies this article) is fired!
Once more, just for me:
OMAROSA IS FIRED !!
As they leave, Trump says, “Well, that was pretty easy, to be honest. That one was obvious.” The kids agree. It was actually obvious in week one too (and probably week six, also), but Trump has his own agenda.
In the cab, Omarosa publicizes her charity, the Positive Vibrations Youth Mentoring Program at the Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum. She says, “No man is your friend; no man is your foe; but every man is your teacher.” I say, I cherish my friends, stay wary of those who would do me harm, and never accept the advice of anyone Baldwin-ish.
Next week: Selling a designer sandwich. Who’s in a pickle, who’s a ham, and who doesn’t cut the mustard? We’ll find out!
My Comments: It would have been completely appropriate for Trump to fire two people after the biggest defeat ever, and even dumping the entire trio has a lot of merit. Baldwin mailed it in and Trace was also ineffective. At this stage of the game, are they holding back?
Join me here next week for more of the same… sans Omarosa!
