Trump says he was totally enthused about Dennis, and wanted him to kick Joan's ass. Trump says this is an interesting case, supposing the women lose, what should Trump do? He says he's never done this before, but maybe he should fire Dennis. Since the episode's minutes are ticking away quickly, I'm thinking we're not going to have the women discuss enough for a firing, so it's going to be Dennis, I think. It's time to find out. On a possible score of 100, the men scored 86. Trump says that's very good. Using the same criteria, the women scored 91. Tionne's teary, and Trump says he loves her attitude. He asks what her charity is, and she says it's the Sickle Cell Disease Foundation of Georgia. Wow. That's a mouthful. Trump congratulates Tionne again, on being so great.
Trump says he'd normally send the women out, but in this case he doesn't think there's a need. He tells Dennis it was a rough time, and he thinks Dennis has had a rough time. He says he's given Dennis every single benefit of the doubt. Dennis says, "Absolutely." Trump says he likes him and respects him. He adds that he respects the "real" Dennis. (Unless, of course, alcoholic Dennis is the real one, and the NBA champ was a façade?) Trump asks if Dennis has anything to say. Dennis says yeah, that he always does. He says these guys are threatened by him. Trump says he doesn't think they're threatened -- that they like him when he's not drinking -- but go on. Dennis says that outside this show, he can kick anyone's ass at anything. Trump asks Jesse to respond. He says Dennis should try to kick their ass at being a good person. He says he used to drink, and he has walked in his shoes. He says the way Dennis acted last night -- that's not how Dennis would want people to see him. And he adds that Dennis is a person he really likes. Trump says that Clint can't love Dennis, but Clint says he understands him. He says he likes who Dennis really is, but not who he's trying to be. He says he's not for everyone, but he could be for a lot of people. Trump says he knows two Dennises also. He says the real Dennis is a solid guy, but this other Dennis -- because of alcohol -- is a different guy. Trump says he has great respect for him, but he disappeared and disappointed his team. He says he wanted Dennis to prove something, but he didn't prove it. He fires Dennis, who says "Absolutely." Everyone looks sad. Dennis says good luck as he leaves. Jesse and Annie walk out arm in arm. How is it possible that the boardroom decision that makes the most sense is also so damn sad? Am I really getting teary-eyed about Dennis Rodman's drinking problems? Um, no. I'm not, okay?
