Brande Roderick Defends Donald Trump Over 'Drop to Your Knees' Comment

The former Playboy Playmate told INSIDE EDITION that she ignored his comment because they'd only ever had positive experiences

Two people on the receiving end of Donald Trump's put-downs have reacted to the presidential hopeful's performance on Thursday night's debate.

During the debate, moderator Megyn Kelly referred to Trump's comments about Brande Roderick, a former Playboy Playmate and a one-time Apprentice candidate.

He once told her in the boardroom: "Must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."

But speaking to INSIDE EDITION, Roderick, who is starring in upcoming series Four Kings, said she was not bothered by the comment. 

"I kind of let it go in one ear and out the other because I've never had a negative experience with Donald," she said.

Following the debate, Trump also took a swipe at pollster Frank Luntz.

Luntz asked a focus group how many people had a positive view of Trump before the debate compared with after the debate. Many more raised their hands in answer to the first question.

In response, Trump sent out a series of scathing tweets.

.@FrankLuntz is a low class slob who came to my office looking for consulting work and I had zero interest. Now he picks anti-Trump panels!

.@FrankLuntz I won every poll of the debate tonight by massive margins @DRUDGE_REPORT & @TIME so where did you find that dumb panel.

.@FrankLuntz, your so-called "focus groups" are a total joke. Don't come to my office looking for business again. You are a clown!

But speaking to INSIDE EDITION, Luntz was unfazed.

"The Fox panelists handled the debate perfectly," he said, calling their questions "legitimate."

Of Trump, he added: "He just didn't have the right answers."
