“Locker room talk” led to Donald Trump firing TNA’s Maria Kanellis in 2010

The leaked audio from 2005 of Donald Trump using vulgar terms regarding women continues to dominate the news cycle. I would expect more stuff to be dug up as the election heats up. On Monday night, The Daily Show found a clip from an episode of NBC’s The Apprentice from 2010 where TNA Knockout Maria Kanellis gets fired for using “locker room talk.” Kanellis had just come off her WWE run when she appeared on the show.

In the clip (see below), when talking about a fellow castmate, she said, “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. That is the whole purpose of why I was upset.”

That line was apparently too much for Trump and he promptly fired her. In addition to calling her comments “gross” and “disgusting” he added that “This is my boardroom. It’s not a locker room. You’re fired.”

Kanellis has been retweeting some of the news stories circulating today. Check out the clip below:
