Remember When Donald Trump Body-Shamed a Pregnant Kim Kardashian?

The people of the United States really don’t need a reminder of why we all despise Donald Trump. He’s rude, he’s the epitome of mansplaining and he has clear prejudices against marginalized groups, including women. But an old interview has found its way back into the good graces of the internet to be a little reminder of why he’s so putrid.

The picture Trump was referring to; Kim Kardashian circa 2013

The 2013 video is an interview Trump did for HLN’s Showbiz Tonight, where he was asked about Kim Kardashian registering for gifts for her upcoming baby shower while pregnant with first child North West at the time. From one rich person to another, basically does Kim need to ask for gifts when she can afford everything herself?

Starting off nicely, Trump says he likes Kim, saying she’s “really a nice person.” But as most Trump-related speeches go, it takes a turn for the worst.

“She’s gotten a little bit large,” he continued. “I would say this, I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.”

Obviously convinced that his opinion matters and forgetting that no one can dictate what you wear except for the person putting those clothes on, Trump yet again wows with his sexist and inappropriate comments. Also, this guy is seriously concerned with women’s weight when he, of all people, really shouldn’t be.
