After some commercials, David tells Jose in the lobby how much respect he's gained for him and how intelligent he is, with so much integrity. Jose appreciates it. Huh. I wonder if they'll gang up on Hatch in the boardroom? Please don't make me root for the asshole. Trump calls them back in, and asks Hatch why he should fire Jose or David. Hatch says it would be a real mistake to fire him, because if he really understood the dynamics of what took place, he'd recognize an efficient operation. Trump butts in, "But you lost." Hatch acknowledges it, but says Jose didn't raise a single penny. Jose looks creepy with his blue contacts. Trump reminds Hatch he previously said that Jose was working hard, so he can't call him out now for not raising money. But Trump turns to David and asks why he didn't raise money, since he's a star with friends. David says he did raise money, and Hatch says his daughter brought in $1,000. Trump asks who Hatch would fire: David or Jose. Hatch says he'd fire David over Jose, because he was more difficult to manage. Trump asks him if that's why he got physical with him. Hatch says he didn't think he got physical with him, but if he did that's probably why.
Ivanka says that Jose called David an underdog, and asks if that's how he perceived him in the context of the team. Jose says he said that because Hatch had it out for David. Hatch says he just felt that David needed more guidance, because there was a lot of whining. Ivanka laughs, and says, "whining, delicate..." Trump says that David was whining, and he shouldn't be, since he's a big star, bigger than these other two "in a certain way." Hatch says that's what he means by having to manage him differently. He says David is a star and is used to a little more coddling, perhaps, which he doesn't mean disrespectfully, of course. Hatch says if he had been told that he was being offensive, he would have adjusted.
