THE women who’ve come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct over the last week aren’t the only women he’s deemed unattractive.
Despite claiming he fired Khloé Kardashian from Celebrity Apprentice in 2009 because of a past DUI arrest, a new report from the Huffington Post claims the Republican presidential nominee axed the reality star because of her appearance.
“He basically wanted to just get rid of her. He called her a ‘piglet,’” an editor on Celebrity Apprentice told the website.
Another source connected to the show accused Trump, 70, of being even more scathing in his critique of Khloé, 32. “He said: ‘Why don’t we fire Khloé? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?’” they said.
Yet again an editor said that despite what it may have looked like on the show, Khloé was fired because Trump didn’t like her. “When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit,” they said. “It was on him not liking her.”
According to the report, the offending remarks were made off-camera before the show’s famous boardroom scenes in which Trump would send one contestant home, gleefully telling them, “You’re fired!”
Despite the frequent disregard for decency he’s shown during this election cycle, Trump knew, or was at least told, that he couldn’t fire Khloé because he found her “fat” or “ugly,” and instead claimed that the decision had been made because of a past DUI arrest she had failed to disclose during the second season of Celebrity Apprentice.
The 2009 incident isn’t the only time presidential nominee has shown a preoccupation with the Kardashians’ weight. While Kim was pregnant with daughter North West, Trump said the reality star should rethink how she was dressing.
“She’s gotten a little bit large,” he said at the time. “I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.”
The report comes the same day that former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos became the latest woman to come forward and accuse Trump of sexual misconduct in 2007.
