Assorama now moves into the portion of her speech in which she says, "I think Kristi is a wonderful person, but she made some horrible decisions as project manager." Hard to argue with that, unfortunately, although Assorama doesn't mean the first part. Trump asks Assorama if Kristi choked, and Assorama says, "Unfortunately, she choked at the worst time, and that's during leadership time." Bleh, "leadership time." She makes it sound like "music time" or "art time" or "cookie time." Shut up. Trump asks her if she could have done better. Of course, Assorama says yes. She says she grew up going to flea markets, and that her mother bought their clothes there, and in that case, I have to wonder why she wasn't doing any better than sitting around a shop in Chinatown trying on hats. Either she has nothing to offer, or she was slacking. Either way, she has nothing to be quite this snotty about.
Jessie is asked what she thinks. "I think it was management," she says. "Kristi?" Trump asks her. "Kristi," Jessie says with certainty. And a little snake noise plays on the soundtrack, heh. Nice. "You think she blew it?" Donald says. Jessie nods. Oooooh, that was horrible. She is so going to hell. Kristi looks very unhappy.
Trump turns to Heidi. "What about you, Heidi? You've been very, very quiet." She gets all fake-snotty, saying, "You have never, never addressed me!" "Well," he says, amused by how dumb she is, "you're right." She complains that she's "getting a little...feeling left out, Mr. Trump!" She goes on to tell him that she saw three critical errors. "One," the product, which she didn't like. "B," the location, which she didn't like. "And," a lack of planning. Wow. "One," "B," and "And." I see some minor parallel structure issues there, but I don't really have enough time on my hands to figure them all out. Trump asks whom she thinks lost the money. She glares back. "You like putting me on the hot seat, don't you?" Heidi snaps. What happened to "up-front" now? What do you think it's been when every other damn person was asked whom they blamed? She is dumb as a post. Asked whose fault she thinks it was, Heidi refuses to assign blame, saying she doesn't know.
Giving up on Heidi, Trump turns back to Kristi for her reaction. She says she agrees that there were management errors. Assorama smirks. Trump asks Troy's opinion. Troy praises Kristi for telling the team that she would take the responsibility for the loss. "Unfortunately," he says, "we're sittin' at the table today and we've got a loss." He's pretty good at delivering that message -- the "Kristi must go" message -- without coming off totally rude or spiteful, which is more than I can say for any of the women who have spoken.
