UPDATE: Heidi Klum tweeted an awesome video response to Trump's dig, in which she's posing for photos while wearing a sign that reads "10." Then a version of Trump appears and rips the sign off of her, reducing her to a mere 9.9. She captioned the video, "#TrumpHasSpoken #sadly #9.99 #NoLongerA10 #IHadAGoodRun #donaldtrump #HeidiTrumpsTrump #BeautyIsInTheEyeOfTheBeheld."


Donald Trump is willing to admit that sometimes his comments get out of hand, but that doesn't mean he's going to change his ways.

The real estate mogul sat down with The New York Times' Maureen Dowd to talk about everything from his attitude to his political platform, but somehow managed to insult a woman along the way—even though he said he finds women "to be amazing."

The woman in question this time around was supermodel Heidi Klum. "Sometimes I do go a little bit far," he admitted, before adding, "Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."

Klum hasn't responded to his dig, but we're sure there are many who would disagree with the businessman.

His Klum comment comes only a short while after he made his "blood" comment about Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly, which many believed was a suggestion that she was on her period when she grilled him during the first GOP debate. He told CNN's Don Lemon, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."

Trump had the opportunity to apologize, but declined to do so, insisting that Kelly should actually be saying sorry to him. He also denied that his comments had anything to do with menstruation.

His views on women have come into the spotlight since Kelly brought up that he had referred to women he didn't like in the past as "fat pigs" and "disgusting animals." He only added insult to injury when he cracked "only Rosie O'Donnell" when Kelly was still mid-question.

Meanwhile, it sounds as though Trump and Kelly have agreed to disagree since their run-in.

"Mr. Trump is an interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate. That's why he's leading in the polls. Trump, who is now the frontrunner, will not apologize. And I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism," Kelly said on Fox News' The Kelly File following the debate. "So, I'll continue doing my job—without fear or favor. And Mr. Trump, I expect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign thus far."

"This is a tough business," she added, "and it's time now to move forward."
