Okay, but you're at lunch with Trump right now? And the task is over?
Josh mentions his feelings, which he shares with Chris and just about the whole team, that he'd be happy working without PM exemptions altogether, unless something crazy were to happen and a given PM really somehow contributed a lot, like 50\% of the revenue. Sadly, however, there was nothing amazing or particularly leaderly about Markus's work.
Back to Markus, who's lecturing Trump about business: "Don't hold back, make sure you use your resources to their utmost." Trump turns to Josh again. "He said he was going to stop talking so much. People don't change, by the way." Markus finally gets a little bit of the point and looks down, mumbling, okay. Trump addresses the table at large: "People. Don't. Really. Change." Markus is still only about one percent as embarrassed as he should be. Trump knows he's preaching to the choir, so he really sells it.
Back at the suite, Melissa starts with the backstabbing, bitching to Jen W. about how "unfortunately," the first task was led by Kristi, and "unfortunately," she doesn't "respect her." She says it's "because of the way she handled things from the get-go," and, frankly, because of the way "she dealt with us as individuals." Translation: She ignored my stupid, racist ideas and unending shrieking, and told me to shut up when I got weird and bitchy, which proves she hates you.
Jen W. is just like, "You heard her say negative, negativity, negative. Why would she think that you're negative?" But Melissa doesn't hear this, flipping out and repeating herself over and over, wanting Jen W. to "understand why I said this," her head flopping all around for emphasis, even though she's not saying anything. "I Don't Respect Kristi." Jen W. is like, so? and Melissa follows up this pointless point with an even more mind-bending "[But] I get that you do!" So, first of all, who or what are you trying to convince? You're not magic, you're not psychic. Telling someone over and over that you feel something is not going to have an effect on them other than irritation and boredom and thinking you're nuts.
