When you want to win The Apprentice and the Donald says, “You don’t want to bring in Mark,” or “I just don’t know why you would bring Markus in with you.” Trump TOLD HIM HOW TO STAY ALIVE and he ignored it.
Last week, Kristi was smart enough to keep her yap shut when Carolyn gave her the hand. In the end, Melissa was fired for being difficult, rather than Kristi for coming up with a bad marketing campaign (XXX) and not hustling more to win (and for giving Trump the lame excuse, “we only lost by $19.” He HATES that!). She let Melissa hang herself with her, “I don’t work well with women – they are intimidated by my beauty and intelligence” comment.
Key lesson from the movie, “The Godfather”: when you kill a guy, it’s not personal, it’s just business. Chris let his dislike for Markus get in the way of his better judgment. It was obvious Trump liked the guy and would not have fired him if Mark had been brought in.
Lesson from last week: Shut your cake hole.
Lesson from this week: Think with your head, not with your heart.
