Donald Trump Body Shamed Kim Kardashian, Called for Kanye West Boycott Years Ago
President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West might be buddies now, but Trump has spoken ill of Yeezy and his wife Kim Kardashian in the past. Entertainment Tonight dug up some old interviews in which Trump body shames Kim Kardashian and criticizes Kanye for crashing Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
"Does she have a good body? No... Does she have a fat ass? Absolutely," Trump said of Kim during a 2013 appearance on The Howard Stern Show. "And if it weren't Kim, they'd say, 'Wow, I don't want to go out with her.'"
Trump also spoke negatively about Kim's appearance in a 2013 interview with HLN's Showbiz Tonight. To make matters worse, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was pregnant at the time with her daughter North.
"She's a nice person," he says in the old clip above. "I've known her over the years. She's a really nice person. She's gotten a little bit large. I would say this, I don't think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds."
As for Kanye, Trump called the rapper's infamous interruption at the 2009 VMAs "disgusting" and said the rapper should be boycotted "so this kind of thing doesn't happen again."
"He couldn't care less about Beyonce," Trump told TMZ. "It was grandstanding to get attention."
Those words are incredibly ironic in light of how President-elect Trump won the 2016 election. Kanye hoped his talk with Trump would inspire the hotel mogul to help Yeezy's hometown of Chicago. But as anyone can see, Trump's word is hollow to say the least.
