Back in the suite, Piers talks excitedly about his Dream Team, winning with only three people. And in the board room, Trump asks Empresario whether they should have had a female PM. Tito says that Omarosa pushed it off on him, and Omarosa denies it, totally dishonestly, and they end up in a pissing match over it. George calls Omarosa out for not using her marketing background to be the PM. In the suite, Piers is enjoying watching Omarosa being put on the spot, as she has to admit that her PM record is 0-2.
Back from the ads, Omarosa says that she tried to educate Tito on Redbook. George calls her on not focusing on the product as well. Omarosa there was no concept, and when Trump asks her whose fault that is, she says it was between Tito as the actual Project Manager and Stephen as the de facto PM. Trump calls Trace a "quiet star" (agreed -- dude's a stealth marketing genius) and asks him who he would fire. Trace sticks up for Omarosa, saying she made suggestions that nobody listened to. He says that Tito let things get away from him, and didn't listen to Omarosa's ideas. This goes around and around for a while, with everyone finally agreeing that Stephen was the one who insisted on leaving the shirtless shots out. Trump asks Tito who he most wants to keep. Tito says Omarosa worked the hardest. And without anyone leaving or coming back, Trump just goes ahead and fires Tito.
But he's giving him a $50,000 parting gift of his own money for Tito's charity, just because of how special Tito is. And add to Trump's list of crimes this one: he's putting me in the position of being pissed at him for giving money to a children's hospital. Trump's pro-fighter bias has been pathetically apparent throughout the season, and now that he basically has no choice but to fire one of them, he's also giving him a reward that amounts to two-and-a-half times what previous winning PMs have been getting for their charities. I mean, I'm all for Trump giving away as much to charity as he wants to (if not more), but if the concept of "competing for charity" is going to mean anything, you can't reward the losers more richly than the winners, just because you feel like it. And that's exactly what I'm going to tell the first pediatric cancer survivor I meet whose life was saved at St. Jude's, too.
