Memories, a blight on the corners of my mind
Anyway, Jennifer bickered with everyone over the task, but Mosaic won the task largely because the women hovered over their customers in their black dresses, looking like twittering imbeciles. In the Boardroom, Stacy pointed her finger at all the finger-pointers, and Carolyn was like, "What is the MATTER with you crazy harpies?" Jennifer C. kept talking and talking and talking, and she pretty much made everything worse, and Trump spoke the immortal words, "Your entire team hated you," and she was fired. She reflects that she anticipated going into the show that she would stand out for determination and intelligence the way she usually does (snerk), not anticipating that everyone else would be good, too. "They gave me a run for my money," she says. Yeah, you went out fourth, dear. I think they did a little more than that. Trump says insightfully that "She wasn't good." No encouraging words for her.
So anyway, because of the "constant bickering," Trump sent Pamela over to be the boss of Apex. She started by telling them not to spend all their time talking about boys and makeup, which I would find kind of insulting, except that my guess is that they did in fact do that, and it probably is irritating. Pamela informs us that "women don't respond well to other women telling them what to do." That must be why the TWoP staff and management is all fellas. Wrangling chicks -- what a drag! Ptooey! Anyway, as hard as Pamela tried to get the team pulled together -- which she kind of did -- the women lost again, this time by the painful sum of ten dollars. Yep, ten dollars. Even Trump agrees that "everybody ganged up on [Pamela]," and we now see that the major movers behind the ganging up in the suite were the men, who immediately descended on the women to tell them how important it was to get rid of Pamela. Raj insists to the women that Pamela is smug, is "irreverent" (due admiration for Trump being apparently a requirement), and that she believed herself to be above being booted. "You have a spider of great poison and cunning in your presence," he says. Wait, now it's because she's poisonous and cunning? I thought she was smug and disrespectful. Raj certainly is having a difficult time nailing down exactly what it is about the strong, smart woman who's taller than he is that bothers him so much. Stacy, whom I had mercifully almost forgotten, tells us that the guys were "practically unanimous" on the need to get rid of Pamela, so obviously, the women had to consider that in deciding on whom they would gang up. So now, people are going to be fired according to the complaints of the men, as relayed to the women, as transmitted to Trump. That's a reliable chain of hearsay if ever there was one. Can't imagine how anything could be obscured along that trail.
