Trump talks about the two yooge potential jobs for the next Apprentice, and this part confuses me every year. Whichever one the Apprentice takes, the other one...what? Lies fallow? Or the runner-up gets it? But then why would he say...never mind. I couldn't care less, to be honest, about this part. The first one is a $400M condo project called "Trump Plaza Jersey City," which will be a double "architectural jewel" and will have "breathtaking views of the Hudson and Liberty State Park" and will be a "beautiful testament to high-end luxury building and design." The other one is a tripartite expansion/renovation on Trump's three Atlantic City casino/hotels (the Taj Mahal, the Marina, and the other one), which actually sounds like more fun, because it's entertainment and expansion, rather than residential and ground-up building. He tells them he'd like their decisions first, "before" he makes his mind up for sure, and Randal replies glibly that the Atlantic City project seems to hold the "greatest promise and greatest impact" for the Trumpanies as a whole. Grandma has questions about this, I think. ["So do I. Let's start with this one: Has Randal been to A.C.? Because I mean, he's going to have to live there, functionally, which in theory, yes, take the casino job. In practice ." -- Sars] Rebecca says that Atlantic City sounds very expensive and fun, and wishes Trump the best with it, but expresses a preference for the Jersey City one. Everybody claps, Trump says that makes things easier, I still have no idea what any of them are talking about.
Trump asks Rebecca whether it's possible that Randal is overeducated, and Rebecca explains that she would never undermine education, but that it's a matter of what you do with it. Specifically, that you know what you're doing, and then that you do it. Huh. Stupid question, content-free answer. Randal "would add, Mr. Trump, that [he runs] a multimillion-dollar consulting firm, BCT Partners," so the fact of his "five academic degrees" is "overshadowed by the fact that" he's run five companies. "So we have to keep that in mind." Randal answering questions nobody asked, that's like a nervous tic, and I think it comes from way over-rehearsing, which itself arises from the fact that he taped this shit a hundred years ago and has spent every day since then being told this is his to lose.
