George asks what exactly ruffled Bill. Nick says that it was the multitude of things coming at him all at once. George wants more detail. Nick cites the lost signs. Katrina cites Bill's "unbelievable potential," and talks about what a great candidate he is. She says he just needs "more confidence." Carolyn actually nods a little while Katrina is talking. That's a new pair of people to find in agreement.
Trump turns to Team Kwame for their full report. Assorama says that Kwame was "quite the opposite" of the way they're describing Bill. She says in her smooth, maddening way that if anything, Kwame was too laid-back, and too hands-off. She says they didn't see "intensity" when things went wrong, and she thinks they may have needed to see some. Trump asks Heidi if she thinks Kwame has "the intensity." She says yes, but she adds that she does "like to be micromanaged." In other words, yet again, "I fear being asked to actually be responsible for anything" is basically the point she's making. She's consistent, at least. Assorama tells the story of losing Jessica Simpson. "She just cut off all communication with us." Trump makes a face. Assorama complains that Kwame didn't do anything to deal with that situation. Trump asks the team if indeed Kwame is too laid-back. Troy insists that Kwame is laid-back, but he's prepared -- he has the whole formula for being a great manager. Carolyn says to the team that it sounds like they're saying that if they worked for Kwame, they'd actually rather see him a little more wound up at times, and they don't disagree.
George asks all of them if they've stopped to consider what they would do if they were in Trump's shoes, trying to hire someone for the job that Trump is looking to have done. "We're talking about somebody who has the ability to build into a long-term career." "Then that's Kwame, hands-down," Assorama says, as if she didn't spent the entire task cutting Kwame off at the knees. Trump cuts this inquiry short and just puts it this way -- who would they choose if they were Trump? All of Team Kwame says they'd choose Kwame. All of Team Bill says they'd choose Bill. "All right, get out of here. You haven't helped me at all," Trump snaps. Hee. Scram, losers! They get up and leave. Carolyn chuckles. The teams pass their fearless leaders in the lobby on the way into the elevator. The guys sit, drowning in their own tension like Cheerios in milk.
