President Donald Trump referred to then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates with a profane name that is sometimes used to crudely refer to female genitalia.

“And Trump conceived an early, obsessive antipathy for Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates,” the passage obtained by MSNBC reads, “she was, he steamed, ‘such a c**t’.”

Watch the clip below.

Ed. note: This story has been updated to reflect that Yates was dismissed in 2017.
