Heidi Klum has spoken out about Donald Trump's outrageous insult, revealing her reasoning behind making a video comeback to the presidential hopeful’s recent diss that she’s “no longer a 10.” 

In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly the German supermodel admitted, "To be honest, I have no idea how I got [to be] a part of this election! But since I was, I was just making fun of the whole situation. That’s why I did that little video, because I thought it was just fun and would make light of it. I don’t take myself, or the whole thing, too seriously.”

Billionaire Trump, 69, took a swing at the Project Runway host during an Aug. 15 interview with the New York Times.

"Sometimes I do go a little bit far," he admitted of his insults, adding, "Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."

The Heidi Klum Intimates founder took to Twitter two days later, sharing a hilarious video which proved that the 42-year-old beauty's sense of humor was every bit as impressive as her model looks.

“#TrumpHasSpoken #sadly #9.99 #NoLongerA10 #IHadAGoodRun #donaldtrump #HeidiTrumpsTrump #BeautyIsInTheEyeOfTheBeheld,” the blonde stunner captioned the clip of herself.

In the video, Klum wears a shirt with a piece of paper that reads “10.” A man wearing a Trump mask comes up and rips the “10” off to reveal a “9.99.” At first Klum looks outraged, but then she shrugs it off and “#HeidiTrumpsTrump” flashes on the screen.

“I don’t think any woman deserves this, but we all do work so very hard and we always try our best, I believe,” the supermodel tells Us. “Any woman that works very hard, takes care of her kids, husband, family, and of herself — I do believe that we all deserve a 10. I do."
