Trump asks Lee what the issues were, and Lee says that there were "areas of opportunity" that they missed, and scoffs when Trump asks if any of that is his fault. Bill asks Lee if he was particularly hard to manage -- so I guess he was listening to parts of Charmaine's bitching sentences -- and Trump laughs about how of course not, because...yep, you got it: he's such a fucking "politician." Do they even need to show up for these things? Really? All he sees is stick figures with one-word cartoon faces and occasional breasts anyway. Charmaine says that Lee was maybe "a little difficult," but that nobody really could ever compare to Tarek. Trump says drolly, "Tarek's tough, huh?" And because Trump's got a smile on his face, Tarek busts a hump: "I always get that, Mr. Trump!" Like it's something to be fucking proud of. But Trump hates Tarek anyway, no matter how much ill-advised ass he smooches, so he's like, "All right, whatever. Settle, you." He asks Michael whom he should fire, and Michael gets scary and weird and stupid-sounding. "The person who was most difficult to manage. When you look at a team of four, all struggling for the same goal, they need to work together, need to be managed, and if one person is causing mismanagement because of attitude and the way they act, you look at that person and say, 'Why?' And you look at the PM and say, 'Are they doing their best?'"
Trump blows a gasket about how "very well-stated" that complete lack of opinion was, and Michael thanks him and returns to injecting bleach into his eyeballs or measuring his toes over and over and over or whatever somebody that fucking weird does for fun. Tarek begins, "In my own defense..." and again, Trump shuts him the hell down. It's satisfying to see Trump's utter dislike and disinterest in Tarek's mess. I like Tarek, basically, even though his issues are boring and cause him to act like a fuck-up most of the time, but it's still kind of like Christmas. I don't remember Trump just hating anybody this much. But then, I've never seen him in the kind of total gay love with anybody as he was when this started up. He turns back to Michael about how it was a "beautiful statement," even though it was...not a declaration of anything in particular, just a simple proof: when the team fucks up, you look at the leader and you look at the team, and you determine who caused the issue. Isn't that beautiful? He should be a published poet. Michael responds in the most asinine, unbelievable manner possible: "I believe it. When you believe something from your heart, it's hard not to say things like that." Tarek bursts out laughing; I have never loved Tarek until this moment. My God, Michael. What the EFF is wrong with you? Trump gets super-pissed at him for making fun of Michael, because that means he's making fun of Trump, which can never happen, because he's "smarter" than Trump, which is all there is to Tarek. He's so fired; it's over. He doesn't know to lie down yet, but he just died. ...But it was kind of worth it, because that was fucking embarrassing, that little non-speech followed by that little I-don't-know-what, and Trump should be made fun of for getting so drippy about it.
