During a 2010 episode of 'The Apprentice' entitled "Beauty and Brains", Donald Trump criticized the complexion of one of the contestants, country musician Emily West, who was receiving a makeover for a segment on the show -- “I assume you’re gonna leave this off, don’t put this shit on the show, you know. But her skin, her skin sucks, okay?” he says, according to the show's transcript. “I mean her skin, she needs some serious fuckin’ dermatology.”. The criticism never made it to the air, but the transcript was recovered by Huffingtonpost. After others on the show tried to stand up for West's skin, Trump went on to say, "You’re obviously not a skin man,” Trump said. He later reiterated the point, pounded the table and said, “which is okay.” He added, “I wish I wasn’t.”
