Trump says it wasn't even close, and then asks Wade what that mess was all about. Wade agrees it was a mess, and says he owes Trump an apology. He says he knew it was coming and was embarrassed by it. Trump asks why Wade picks Gene, who's obviously never done this before. Wade says that Gene told him he had public-speaking experience, and he believed him. Trump keeps ridiculing Wade for Gene mispronouncing every word and not making sense. Then he compares him to Brandy. Wade can't disagree, but he really should start throwing Gene under the bus. Trump says he'll use Brandy if he needs a speaker. Wade says he thought Gene would do well, because he has a good voice and carries himself well. Trump agrees, then finally turns to Gene, asking him first why he'd bring in the big computer instead of, oh, I don't know, paper? Trump goes on and on about how bad Gene was at reading and talking, and how he didn't talk about how beautiful the shoes were even though he went into minute details about everything else. Gene says this wasn't the plan, and totally agrees. Trump says that David wasn't great, but he did okay compared to Gene.
Trump asks Gene if Wade was a terrible project manager, and Gene says he did great. Trump's like, "Yeah, right. He picked two guys who were terrible." He says Wade should have chosen Steuart and Anand, who are smoother guys and would have made a nice presentation. Trump says he never would have chosen David, and Gene couldn't have been worse. He asks why Wade didn't pick Steuart and Anand. Wade says they work well together and are stylish, so he had confidence they'd choose a good wardrobe. Wade says that Gene has a nice voice, as you can hear in the boardroom. Trump, pretty angry at this point, says he doesn't know if Gene has a nice voice, but he couldn't fucking read! He mocks Gene's reading skills some more, and thinks Wade should have tested them. Trump says this is the worst job he's ever seen as an emcee.
Trump turns to his adviser Catherine then and says what struck her is how bad it was during the rehearsal. She wonders why no one stopped it, and points out Clint and Anand as having been right there. Clint says he thought Gene just didn't have the paperwork he needed. Trump gets back on Wade about why he didn't know Gene couldn't do this, and Wade says there was no rehearsal because he kept checking in on Gene. Trump interrupts: "Did you check to see whether or not he could perform?" Wade tries to talk to Gene, and Trump stops him. Then Wade tries to say he felt confident in Gene because he's been eloquent. Trump keeps telling Wade to basically shut up. He thinks it's unacceptable that there was no rehearsal, because they would have known Gene sucked. Gene tries to defend himself and says he can speak, but Trump says even the content of his speech was boring. He says that everyone knew they lost as soon as Gene started talking. Can't he just fire them both? And just throw David in for good measure?
