Khloe Kardashian says Trump is 'really cruel'

As the host of Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump reportedly called Khloe Kardashian "the ugly Kardashian" and a "piglet" when she appeared on the show in 2009.

Now, Kardashian is responding, following a difficult few weeks for her family after her sister Kim was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel.

“I didn’t think he was saying those things about me,” Kardashian said while promoting her Good American denim line on Tuesday, according to the LA Times. “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."

“It’s not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks,” she said. “I find it really cruel. It’s wild.”

Celebrity Apprentice staffers claimed that Trump complained to producers about Kardashian's looks, even trying to get her booted from the show.

"We can’t even get the hot one?” he reportedly said, referring to Kim. “Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?"

In June, Khloe told Chelsea Handler that she'd never wanted to appear on Celebrity Apprentice, and that mom Kris Jenner convinced her to do it.

"I just didn't care to do Celebrity Apprentice," she said. "I don't know why. Just like, it wasn't for me. And then my mom made me do it, of course. So I did it, and I hated every minute of it."

Khloe's Trump drama follows Kim's admission that she was "on the fence" about voting for Hillary Clinton after consulting with Caitlyn Jenner, an outspoken Republican and Trump voter. Soon after, Kim shared in a post on her website that she's firmly #WithHer.

"I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her," Kardashian wrote. "I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job."
