And we're back live. Hey, there's George in the audience, clapping away. Of course he's happy; he doesn't have to sit at that table tonight.
Trump calls Trace out to the live board room, and he enters in his three-piece suit and cowboy hat. Which is not nearly the ridiculous affectation in New York City that a touch of black nail polish is. Piers comes out next in a poorly-fitting game show host suit. At least the money he's raising is really going to charity and not a decent tailor. He sits down to mixed cheers and boos. Trump's first question is to Trace, asking what he thinks about Piers. Trace says that he doesn't care for Piers much, and reminds him that the strongly business-minded Erin Burnett and Jim Cramer thought Piers should have been fired. Piers cops to being the "evil, obnoxious, disgusting Brit." Think it's getting to him yet? No, me either.
Time to bring out the rest of the also-rans, who come out one by one and take seats in what looks like a jury box, but without the box. Gene Simmons is gone, because he's busy shooting a movie in Japan. Finally, that sequel to KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park that I've been waiting for! And the other missing celebrity? Omarosa.
Cue a montage of Piers vs. Omarosa's greatest hits. I've had some time to think about this since their big blow-up all those weeks ago, and I've realized something. Yes, Omarosa went below the belt with Piers. The meanest, worst, coldest thing you can say to a normal human being is that their family hates them and is disappointed in them; and Omarosa went there with Piers. But the meanest, worst, coldest thing you can say to Omarosa is this: "You're not that famous." And that's where Piers started with her. So take that for what it's worth. Anyway, we're reminded that back then, Piers vowed never to talk to her again. So then she finally comes out in full dragon-lady regalia. Trump asks her why she doesn't like Piers. "Because he doesn't floss," Omarosa says, failing to impress Trump with a diatribe about Piers's poor dental hygiene. Piers just pretends not to know who she is. There he goes again.
