STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Going in, [Hillary Clinton] was trying to get under your skin a couple of times. Did she? 

DONALD TRUMP: No, not at all. I didn't see it that way. At the end, maybe, the very last question, when she brought up the person that became -- I know that person, that person was a Miss Universe person, and she was the worst we ever had. The worst, the absolute worst. She was impossible, and she was a Miss Universe contestant and ultimately a winner who they had a tremendously difficult time with as Miss Universe. 

DOOCY: Did not know that story. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Well, I didn't know either. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): What --

TRUMP: She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her, so Hillary went back into the years and she found this girl. This was many years ago, and found the girl and talked about her like she was Mother Teresa and it wasn't quite that way, but that's OK. Hillary has to do what she has to do.
