New Fat-Shaming Allegations Surface Against Trump, Including Rant Against Kim Kardashian
A slew of new fat-shaming allegations are coming back to bite Donald Trump, including a 2013 rant against Kim Kardashian that has come back to the surface in a heated election campaign.
The conversation happened on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, where Trump said Kardashian, pregnant with her first child, North West at the time, had “gotten a little bit large."
He added: "I would say this, I don't think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds."
In addition, a Los Angeles Times investigation has revealed employees at a Trump golf course in California claimed he wanted to fire women who weren't pretty enough for their jobs.
The allegations were made in a 2012 lawsuit against the Trump National Golf Club, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
Trump would periodically visit the club, and managers said they would go on high alert, scheduling young, thin, pretty women to work in the clubhouse restaurant.
One club manager testified that Trump told him restaurant hostesses were "'not pretty enough' and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women."
Another manager went so far as to say: "Mr. Trump doesn't like fat people."
The lawsuit was settled with no admission of wrongdoing in 2013, and a lawyer for the Trump Organization told Inside Edition the allegations "meritless."
