Donald Trump isn’t exactly winning the Kardashian vote these days.
Khloe Kardashian ripped into the GOP presidential candidate on Tuesday after published reports that Trump had called former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Kardashian” a “fat piglet” and “the ugly Kardashian.”
While Kardashian told the Los Angeles Times that she didn’t feel that the reported comments were directed at her, she did note Trump’s reputation for disrespecting women, calling his comments “cruel.”
“I didn’t think he was saying those things about me,” Kardashian said. “But he says those comments about a lot of women — really derogatory things. Someone who is that simplistic to judge things off of surface is not someone I want running my country.”
The reality TV star added, “It’s not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks,” she continued. “I find it really cruel. It’s wild.”
According to a report published by the Huffington Post, Trump wondered whether Kardashian should be fired from “Celebrity Apprentice” and disparaged her looks.
“He said, ‘Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?'” the Post reported a source as recalling.
In recent days, Trump’s attitude toward women has faced increased scrutiny. Earlier this month, leaked audio from a 2005 conversation with then-“Access Hollywood” personality Billy Bush revealed Trump as bragging that, when you’re famous, women will let you do whatever you want.
“I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he said. “Grab ‘em by the p—y.”
Trump subsequently apologized, but also dismissed his remarks as “locker room talk.”
More recently, former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos came forward to claim that Trump kissed her “very aggressively,” placed his hand on her breast and thrust his genitals.
Trump has denied Zervos’ account, as well as similar accusations made by at least nine other women.
