Trump really seems to be just trying to humiliate Sandy, it seems to me, when he stops Andy and says, "Who's smarter between the two?" That is such a fucked-up question. He never used to ask that kind of shit except on very, very rare occasions, and now every week he pulls one of these questions that are just intended to foment ugliness, and that serve no other purpose. Anyway, Andy -- knowing the answer that Trump, with his hard-on for college degrees, is looking for -- says that Jen is smarter. Asked who was harder to manage -- do we really need to go on? -- Andy basically just piles on Sandy, refusing to say anything even remotely even-handed that would imply Jen was anything less than perfect in this process in which, given that the team completely failed, she was apparently not that brilliant.
Now, Sandy is asked what she thinks of Andy as a leader. She says he was "immature," and proceeds to call out the bit where he wouldn't allow hard-working people to eat, calling the experience "embarrassing." Not only that, but as Andy tries to take the floor back, Sandy just keeps on talking, not letting him back her down, considering that he's obviously determined to pound her, so it's not like she has anything to lose. She goes on, all the way up to and including "we were treating them like slaves." Hee. Carolyn then asks Andy, quite calmly, how he motivated the design team if he wasn't even letting them eat. Andy first talks about how he thanked them lots and lots. And watching over them to make sure they were working. "And?" Carolyn says, with great distaste. "Cash incentives," Andy says. "Cash," Carolyn repeats, as if it were the word "Hookers."
Asked how Andy did as a leader, Jen takes her usual route of laying the foundation for the argument that he is of course not as good as she would be, but not as bad as the person Jen has decided to blame for the week, by saying that Andy "did a fair job." Really? "Fair"? Gee, don't be too effusive. Jen waffles and dances, saying that Andy "has strengths and weaknesses." Wow, that's some very skilled weaseling, not that I expect anything less. She says that, on the one hand, he was frantic, but on the other hand, that can be viewed as enthusiasm. Well, sure. And dandruff can be viewed as snow, but that doesn't make it melt. When Jen is all done with the endless weaseling, Carolyn smiles and says, "That's a safe answer." Because it is. Asked by Trump again whether she thought Andy was a good leader or just okay, Jen says that he "did a solid job," thus avoiding the question again. Asked about Sandy, Jen is more open, because Sandy is the blame-ee of the week in Jenworld, so she says that Sandy didn't make much of a contribution. That would be in spite of all the times we saw Sandy up at the board, contributing ideas they ended up using, while Jen, we saw...doing what, exactly?
