David and Clint explain the Great Plant Versus Flower Debate of 2010. Trump asks if Clint likes David, and Clint says that's not it; he has compassion about David, which David finds insulting since he doesn't need pity. Trump tells David he can get rid of that stigma by being successful, and David agrees and thanks him. Then Don calls out Clint for being the only guy not wearing a tie while trying to work for The Trump Organization. Trump says he does like ties, then asks Nicole what she thinks. She says her whole personal philosophy is about presentation and overdressing. He asks how her team did, and she says all of her ladies did great. He says that's not true, since he judged it and they did terrible. She thinks they did great given the time constraints. So he asks Tyana what she thought of Nicole. And Tyana rightfully says she didn't think Nicole led, because she didn't delegate or manage. She did love the office, though, but she credits the other ladies. Trump asks if Nicole is surprised Tyana said that about her, but she's not, because she knew Tyana talked shit to Don. He says that's true, but makes Tyana sound very fair and reasonable, talking about delegation and telling people it was up to them. Nicole admits she did that, but says she was trying to delegate. Trump doesn't see her as wishy-washy (because she's pretty and young and he's Trump). Tyana says she is, and everyone talks over one another, and then it abruptly cuts to another commercial.
Back in the boardroom, Nicole says she didn't want a dictatorship, but Don says she's the leader. Liza and Tyana agree about her poor leadership, and then Liza calls Nicole out for not being involved in the physical act of painting, and left them without a point person. Brandy, who we still haven't been introduced to formally (but I looked her up and she's a former lawyer turned entrepreneur), says Nicole is a leader, but ultimately delegation would have helped. Trump asks who was best, and Brandy says they all worked hard and were sweaty. Trump: "Slutty?" Everyone cracks up as she clarifies she said "sweaty," and he's just like, "Oh, wishful thinking." Okay, he didn't say that, but you know he was thinking it. He asks Mahsa, who tells him she thought Nicole would be awesome, but she totally wasn't. She points out that Nicole didn't want to use the one person with design experience for design. There's some debate over who threw whom under the bus first, and Ivanka tries to wedge in that they didn't love the design anyway, but Mahsa won't stop talking. Trump mutters, "This is the district attorney over here, so we have to listen." And they do to a point, then he cuts her off. Trump asks Nicole if she's a little surprised the team's being so vicious toward her before they even know if they've lost.
