Republican nominee Donald Trump's campaign manager revealed she had harsh words for the candidate regarding his comments about women, according to Politico.

"Did you reprimand him for that and say to him: 'Listen, why are you saying women are fat? Why are you calling women fat pigs?'" "The View" host Joy Behar asked Kellyanne Conway during her appearance. "Did you say that to him?"

"Yes," Conway replied, but added it is "beside the point."

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton targeted Trump over his comments on women, particularly former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, whom he called "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping."

A lawsuit filed by former employees at Trump's California golf club alleges Trump sought to fire women who were "not pretty enough," The Los Angeles Times reported.

"I had witnessed Donald Trump tell managers many times while he was visiting the club that restaurant hostesses were 'not pretty enough' and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women," Hayley Strozier, former director of catering at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Veres said in a sworn declaration.

"Well, I don't discuss people's weights and their looks," Conway said after being asked how she feels about Trump's remarks. "I never knew how ugly and how stupid I was until, you know, we had Twitter," she said, suggesting viewers watching would send disparaging remarks about her looks and intelligence, later saying she gave Trump "a second chance."

"The company involved wanted her terminated," Conway said. "Hold on. No, that is just the truth. Hold on. I want everybody to know this. Because she was in breach of contract and the company wanted her terminated, he gave her a second chance. The choices were give her a second chance or terminate her, and he did that. He also has said publicly, I think last night, he's talked to her very briefly over any number of years.

"This was 20 years ago, and she obviously has a troubled past that I won't get into."
