Trump finally gets down to the nitty gritty: The team failed because their product push wasn't consistent. Sinbad insists it was. Trump states matter-of-factly that it couldn't have been if the secret shoppers didn't get the cards. Don chalks it up to disorganization. Ivanka says the executives actually loved that the team pimped out the website, it was simply a failure of execution. Trump asks Blago who he'd fire. "Absent compelling facts where one of the players failed egregiously," prefaces Blagojevich... Sinbad.
Trump asks Bret why he walked away. Bret says he's self-aware enough to know that he would have blown up on Sinbad and could have cost valuable time by fracturing the team. Trump thinks he should have fought anyway, but he doesn't seem to realize that Bret had nothing to fight for. He just wanted to be told "Sweep the floor. Blow up balloons. Dance, monkey, dance!" Any of these would have done. It wasn't a matter of fighting for principal. Trump asks who Bret would fire. No-brainer: Sinbad.
Trumps turns the table, asking why Sinbad shouldn't be fired. He argues he's an asset because he's both a great leader and follower. Trump asks if Bret's manageable. Sinbad says yes. Well then why couldn't Sinbad manage Bret, wonders Trump. He doesn't even let Sinbad answer the questions before cocking up his pointer finger and declaring, "Sinbad, you're fired."
Sinbad seems more beaten-down than anything. Tired. He takes it easily and leaves with amicable guy-hugs to Blago and Bret. Ivanka says Sinbad couldn't talk his way out of getting fired. The Trumps agree it was a case of a bad thing happening to a good guy. Or a bad cat, as it were. Sinbad struts out, saying he had a good time but probably should have been a bit tougher in the boardroom.
