He is making a statement, and the statement is this: "I am confused on a basic level about the economy of respect in which other people constantly trade." He is making the statement: "I don't even understand the concept of being taken seriously." Another statement that he is making, even more loudly, is this: "I am on the down-low."
He states that he is also willing to hug Mr. Trump, if he'll let him go to the bathroom. This is Martin. Fuckin' Martin. Dale Peck's whackjob sense of entitlement to respect; Markus's lazy, fnurring, clueless persona swiped in total; plus whining on like a Jennifer W. scale. It is a heady gumbo. So he says this bathroom thing, which right away is the key to Martin: he believes that this entire group of professional people, 18 candidates and two Trumps and the camera crew, and you and I, should simply stop whatever we are doing, because his area of responsibility is slightly smaller than the piece of driveway on which he's standing. There are those of us who, regrettably, cannot read a room: Martin cannot read the universe. And what the universe is saying is, "Cut us a break, please."
The first task? To build a tent in the backyard of the Candidate Mansion. Angela finds this hilarious, Stefani is worried, Martin has no idea what's going on. These things are true across the board. Trump dismisses them and they run back to the yard and get started. James is funny, Heidi gets right in there, Frank is busily screaming, Derek is helpful, Carey is calm and collected. These things are also true across the board. Heidi finally barks and gets everybody's attention, and sweetly explains that she is now in control. Everybody is okay with this, because she puts a little spin on the last part where you can't disagree with her about any of it. She interviews that she has, in her time, put up many a tent. Angela interviews what went wrong next: Heidi was "doing a great job," Frank got mad that people were doing somebody else's bidding and didn't care that it was working, and tried to assume control of everybody by yelling his stupid ass off. In order to shut him up, the whole team acquiesced, and Frank proceeded to not really be helpful in any way. And still, Martin will find a way to be less acceptable than Frank. Watch.
Everybody is unimpressed with Frank; Tim openly laughs, and Nicole and Muna are not happy about this behavior. James interviews that Frank is a "cartoon character" and "kind of frenetic." Frank shrieks and yells some more; Trump inauthentically yells down from his castle that Frank needs to keep his voice down. This scares Frank, because he is a big childish dumb old baby, but it has no perceivable impact on his behavior, because: ditto. They get it done. Kristine pounds stakes with her bare feet! It's amazing! Frank interviews that everybody was participating except Martin, who "stood on a rock in his three-piece suit." The word is "jerkoff." Martin yells pointlessly down at everybody who's actually working, and everybody ignores him, and he interviews that he was demonstrating his "ability to serve a function" and "keep it unified." My fingernails drew blood from my palms is how hard my hands wanted to throttle him, and we're just barely getting started. Frank screams "HANDS IN!" and everybody puts their hands in and shouts, sadly, "Trump!" Aaron interviews that there was a sense of mystery and terror about the completion of the tent, because what will happen next?
