Toral interviews one of the dumbest things anyone has said this season, and it's so sad that it's in an interview, because it's not like she's getting overwhelmed in the conversation like she usually does. There's like just a guy pointing a camera at her who couldn't care less: "My strategy was really to take an extremely passive approach, to allow each person to implode, because I just didn't think that these people would be able to perform in any manner." Because that's what your beloved "Mr. Trump" likes: bench players. ["And it's only a good strategy if you're not standing off to the side all smugly saying, '…See?' Because that's not a strategy. That's a disorder." -- Sars] She makes a pretty cute face -- although it's the kind of face that implicates me, and I'm so not picking up what she's putting down -- "I'm not completely wrong about that." True enough. Except that the only people your lame-ass strategy have worked on so far are: Melissa, who's like Charlie Manson without the humility, and Jen W., who -- who? Jigga-Dawn? If you want actually well-played sub-radar strategy, talk to Marshawn and Jennifer (Jen M., and that's the last time I'll tell you). I'm just saying -- they've managed to watch lots of people "implode" without incurring the hatred of every goddamn person involved in this show including the viewers, and speaking up when they have something awesome to say. Or something freaky and coked-up, in Jennifer's case -- remember "Lamborghini, motherfucker"? -- but we'll get to that.
In the Rush Chair Bedroom Of Destruction, Toral's like, "I respect that you guys have not seen me 'step up,' as you call it [which, good one, okay, that was awesome], on all of these tasks and if that's something I have to do in the future, I will." Marshawn and Kristi look worried during this little self-exculpating exercise, but I just scream. THE FUTURE IS NOW, YOU GIANT ASSHOLE. I think Rebecca's basically thinking the same thing. Kristi unspools now, because it's clear Toral's not really getting it, the hate, and this is what she totally screams: "Now I'm expecting double, because you owe it to [Rebecca] big-time, because she stood up for you -- [for how] strong and how loyal she is to you, you owe her to bust your butt, because if we end up in the Boardroom and you're still half-assing it, I'll be pissed!" God bless Kristi sometimes, you guys. I don't think I really love her as an employee, although I like her as a PM, but I think mostly that we would get along, due to stuff like this, and that's why I'm so lenient with her bullshit. Toral laughs at this speech early on, and Alla looks worried and grossed out, and Toral moves on to creepy smirking, then shakes her head like it's a shame she's going to be expected to do something. Someday. In the future. THE FUTURE IS NOW, YOU GIANT ASSHOLE.
