The Unbearable Lightness of Carson Daly

Boardroom. George and Carolyn are soon joined on their side of the table by Donald. He calls it "a close match," and says that while they "didn't do terribly," they lost, and somebody has to go. Troy "Just As Long As It's Not Me" McClain, asked for his opinion, says that he thinks Omarosa did a "fantastic job," even though he initially questioned her leadership. Heidi, asked to comment on Assorama, says that she was "pleasantly surprised." Heidi then makes what I think is probably a mistake by saying, "We couldn't have done anything different." I think a guy like Trump always wants to see you looking for things you might have been able to do differently. "But somebody has to go, Heidi. Who do you think has to go?" "It's a very, very difficult decision," she says. "But who has to go?" he asks. "I wouldn't make that decision," she says. He asks her if this means she won't make any decision, and she insists that because she's not the project manager, she doesn't have to, and she seems to just not get that he wants her opinion, and he's saying she does have to, because he's the boss and he's telling her she has to. Anyway, she eventually gives up, after more hedging than a professional topiary gardener, that the only person who had any difficulties was Jessie. So maybe Jessie? I swear, she is such a weenie. What happened to "up-front"? Trump turns to Jessie. "Who should go?" Jessie muses that sometimes leaders "succumb to the pressure," which is also unbelievably weak, as a response. Pressed for details, Jessie just repeats that she thinks Assorama "is a good leader," but just "succumbed to the pressure."

Trump turns to Assorama and asks her -- is this true? "Absolutely not," Assorama says. "I was born to be a leader." I'm sorry, but...of whom? Seriously. Who would follow someone who has nothing but contempt for everyone she comes in contact with? "There was a weak link," Assorama says, "and she's trying to protect herself." Kwame is asked what he thinks, and he says Assorama did a great job. But he thinks Jessie "had the most difficult negotiation." Trump has to ask about three times, but Kwame eventually admits that he probably thinks Jessie is the most ripe for a firing. Man, I have seen criminal defendants who are more forthcoming with answers. Jessie argues that the reasons for the difficulties with Mizrahi were that he knew better what would be a valuable "experience" with him, so he was better able to decide.

Asked how Heidi did, Assorama calls her "fantastic." She goes on, "I haven't always been a fan of Heidi...I haven't always felt that she was professional, or that she had much class or finesse, but..." Heidi laughs uncomfortably, because she really has no choice. "That's one of the worst compliments I ever heard," Trump says, and initially, I think the women think he's teasing, but he's dead-killer-serious. Trump keeps on about that being a pretty crappy remark, which I agree with, and Heidi protests, "I have a lot of class." Heh. Good one. Trump asks Heidi if she thinks Assorama has class, and Heidi says that she didn't used to think so, but now she does. Again, Heidi has no choice, because she's decided to play this scene from the acting manual labeled "Passive" instead of "Aggressive." Moreover, when Trump asks Heidi whether she likes Assorama, she says earnestly, "I do like her." Trump expresses some surprise that after Assorama's last remark, Heidi would still like her. Assorama is still smiling pleasantly, insisting that she and Heidi are "very candid." Of course, they're both being completely the opposite of candid, especially Heidi, who is pretending not to be bothered by someone taking shots at her, because we're all such up-front and fearless people. "She's entitled to her opinion," Heidi says. Well, that's big of her, and also true, but it doesn't really answer the question. "I know myself, I have class," Heidi finishes firmly. Hee. Hee hee. Oh, that Heidi.
