Donald Trump has been on the presidential campaign trail for the past year, but unfortunately for him, it seems like he’s better known for being on a campaign to insult and bash as many people across America as he can with his bigoted, sexist and disrespectful comments. And now it appears like the next person in line to receive some Trump shade is Khloe Kardashian.

Back in 2009, Kardashian appeared on the ninth season of “Celebrity Apprentice” and, according to news reports, several staff members have now come forward to claim that Trump made numerous shady comments about Kardashian’s looks and her popularity when the cameras weren’t rolling.

“He basically wanted to just get rid of her,” said an editor from the show. “He called her a ‘piglet.’ ” The editor also claims that Trump was disappointed that they couldn’t get Kardashian’s more popular sister, Kim Kardashian, on the show and he asked the staff: “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?”

Another source from the show backed editor’s claim and said that Trump said, “Why don’t we fire Khloe? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”

Well, Trump finally got his wish in episode six of the show when he fired Kardashian and sources claim that Trump only let the reality star go because he wasn’t fond of her.

“When they fired [her], it wasn’t on merit,” the editor said. “It was [about] him not liking her.” The editor said that Trump asked the staff: “What’s the reason we can get her off [the show]?”

Well, sources claim that Kardashian isn’t the only cast mate that Trump has bashed throughout the “Apprentice’s” run. Sources claim that Trump also called season 11 finalist Marlee Matlin, who is deaf, “retarded.”

Matlin responded to the reported shade by releasing a statement about Trump, calling his alleged comment “abhorrent.”

Matlin added, “I am deaf. There are millions of deaf and hard-of-hearing people like me in the United States and around the world who face discrimination and misunderstanding like this on a daily basis. It is unacceptable … it’s not about insults or taking each other down. As a person who is deaf, as a woman, as a mom, as a wife, as an actor, I have a voice. And I’m using that voice to make myself heard … and vote.”

Well, what do you think of Trump’s alleged shade to these reality stars? Let us know in the comments.
