Chris complains that Markus "absolutely destroys team cohesiveness [sic]," and Carolyn jumps at this one too. "But that's not the reason for this loss. The reason for this loss is a lack of creativity, so why don't you tell us who was responsible for the creative portion of this task?" Markus looks smugly over at Chris like her "us" her totally includes him. Markus and his best friends Carolyn and Trump would like an answer, please. Chris lays it out nicely: he was responsible for the video element, and he placed Mark in charge of the photo element. I like that he -- I mean, he's already about to go too far, and that's sad, but I like this -- even here, he's being a good little PM and noting his ultimate responsibility for everything. Trump: "So you're bringing back Mark." No, sir. Of course not. George and Josh, in separate cuts, both see where this is headed. Clay tells Trump that Markus should be fired, and Markus looks shocked. His overbaked reactions to everything are really insulting to watch. He just doesn't know what to do with his face, or his hands, or his body, or his boundless saboteur energy. None of it. The whole thing is this physical plea to be part of the in crowd, which in the boardroom is Trump and the Viceroys, just this hugely overdone dramatic thing where he's just scandalized by the low level of people he's being forced to work with and it's so, so stupid.
