Jenn butts in. "I have something to say." Trump turns to her in disbelief. "You ought to shut up," he offers. "You're probably not going to be chosen in all fairness, I don't know what the hell you keep talking for." Heeee hee. He's such a dorky little billionaire, but sometimes, I really do love him. Trump turns to Stacie. "If you were me, who would you fire?" She offers Ivana again, giving very good reasons about how indecisive Ivana is, and how leaders have to be able to step up and take control of a team. Ivana just turns to Stacie and says, "You're more of a liability than an asset to the team."
Trump turns to Baldford and promises to "speak to [him] honestly." "Don't you think I should fire you?" he asks. Baldford says no, but Trump continues, saying that his mistake was broader and more fundamental than ice cream sales techniques. This time, Trump calls giving up the exemption a "life-altering mistake." And, again, "stupid." Trump asks Ivana if she thinks what Baldford did was stupid. She laughs a little too hard, saying she wouldn't have done it. Trump turns back to Baldford and tells him he thinks Baldford is the best candidate in the room. Jennifer starts waggling her head again and making big gestures, and blurts out, "That's insane." "Why do you keep talking?" Trump demands to know. "I'm in the middle of saying something, and then you blurt out...whatever the hell you blurt that nobody ever knows what it means anyway." You know, it's that kind of smackdown that's missing from most of your better reality shows. I've never seen a freaked-out nutjob I wouldn't enjoy seeing Donald Trump rip into in his inimitable fashion. "I'll assess that, and I won't do it again," she says. The answer you were looking for, dear, was, "I'm sorry." Actually, "I'm sorry, sir." Just FYI. Trump returns to his pro-Baldford rant as a general matter. He says that Ivana was "a lousy leader" and disorganized. He thinks Stacie is "hated by all, is not respected by anybody," and Jennifer needs to learn to keep her mouth shut.
