Heidi Klum is puzzled as to why GOP frontrunner Donald Trump would comment on her looks.
The Project Runway host sat for an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show on Tuesday to respond to Trump’s remark that she is no longer a 10.

“I was watching the election because, really, for the first time, I have to admit it, it is quite fun, because of all the fighting and all the madness that is going on and all of a sudden my name comes up. What do I have to do with any of this?” Klum asked, confused. In an August interview with New York Times, The Donald said he thinks the model is “no longer a 10” to which Klum responded with a clever Instagram video with hashtag #HeidiTrumpsTrump.

The model explained why she is unaffected by the seemingly insulting flak, “I mean, who even is a 10? No one’s a 10.”
Klum admitted she had no idea why the Presidential candidate had said that. “I guess because now I’m 42?” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Before the show ended, Klum said she is supporting the Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and stated America needs a woman for president this time. She added Germany has a female chancellor, who has been in office for 10 years now.
“We have not been doing very badly in Germany,” Klum, a native of Germany, told DeGeneres. “We have a German chancellor, Angela Merkel, and she’s been in office since I think 2005 — which is 10 years now. And you know she’s been doing very well.”
DeGeneres agreed with Klum saying, “It’d be nice to have a woman… I agree with you.”
As for her parting words for Trump: “All I have to say (is), may the best woman win.”
