During a 2009 taping of “Celebrity Apprentice,” Donald Trump reportedly said some pretty nasty things in reference to Khloé Kardashian’s weight right before he fired her.
via Huffington Post:
Trump’s remarks were delivered off camera and before the show’s pivotal boardroom scene where he dismisses the episode’s poorest performer with his famous catchphrase: “You’re fired!” According to sources on the show, Trump complained to producers about Kardashian’s looks and itched to have her removed from the show.
“He basically wanted to just get rid of her,” an editor on the show recalled. “He called her a ‘piglet.’” The editor said that Trump asked: “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?” ? in reference to Kardashian’s sister, Kim.
A second source at “The Apprentice” confirmed the incident, using similar words to describe what Trump said about the Kardashians. “He said: ‘Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?’”
A third source, another editor, recalled the firing as being notable because of how personal Trump made it. “When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit,” the editor said. “It was on him not liking her.” The editor said that Trump went to the staff and asked: “What’s the reason we can get her off [the show]?”
The Trump campaign did not return a request for comment. But his alleged disparagement of Kardashian fits a pattern of boorish behavior he reportedly engaged in when “The Apprentice” cameras weren’t rolling. Earlier this week, HuffPost reported a transcript from an unaired moment in which Trump ridiculed a young country music singer’s skin, saying she needed “some serious fuckin’ dermatology.” On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that Trump repeatedly described deaf actress and former “Apprentice” star Marlee Matlin as “retarded.”
This man can NOT be president, y’all.
