Donald Trump Fired 'Apprentice' Contestant for 'Locker Room Talk'

Donald Trump may have excused his words in the Access Hollywood tape by calling it “locker room talk,” but he once fired a contestant on The Apprentice for just that.

The Republican presidential candidate criticized professional wrestler Maria Kanellis-Bennett for mentioning that someone “took a crap” in her dressing room while in the boardroom.

“The reason why I said you were so arrogant was because you came in our dressing room and you took a crap and left the stench in the room,” Maria said to fellow contestant, chef Curtis Stone.

Trump said that Maria‘s comments were “gross” and “disgusting. This is my boardroom. It’s not a locker room.” He then fired her.

Maria says that she was forced by producers to apologize to Trump for her comments after her firing. “I distinctly remember that after I said what I said, I was told I shouldn’t talk like that as a lady, and that, to me, was inequality at its best. I can’t speak my mind as a female, but he can speak his mind as a male. There’s a problem with that,” she told the NY Daily News.

    He is more funnier today. He toyed with Hillary the first 45 minutes of the debate. I thought she was going to cry, and he had these little comebacks that were funny, that made threw her off her game. She looked weak, intimidated, scared. She sat their with a retarded look on her face.

    Now after the first 45 minutes, they were about neck and neck. She did better down the stretch, but she looked like a scared puppy around him in the first half.

  • Do Tell

    Trump has a lot of practice. Ever watch his Apprentice shows? He’s been doing this type of stuff for probably all his life as a businessman.

    This young lady (the wrestler) was nervous in the boardroom and that’s probably why she blurted out what she did. She didn’t think it through. The boardroom can be a vicious place. I would often leave the room or change the channel when the fighting began and Trump started tearing the folks down.

    Trump likes people who fight well.
