Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina went slightly more in-depth Thursday to explain what's become a frequently usedcomparison — GOP front-runner Donald Trump and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star Kim Kardashian.

At a campaign event Thursday in Charleston, South Carolina, Fiorina said Trump's "big" mouth was similar to a Kardashian's big "you-know-what," drawing a burst of laughter from the crowd.

"You know, Donald Trump is the Kim Kardashian of politics," she said. "He has a big mouth. She has a big 'you-know-what.' And they're both famous for being famous, and the media plays along."

Carly Fiorina on the campaign trail:

Fiorina first made the comparison on Twitter last week and recently rehashed it in a meeting with theDes Moines Register.

The two Republican rivals have feuded on and off since early in the campaign season. Most notably, Trump appeared to take a shot at Fiorina's looks in a September interview with Rolling Stone.

"Look at that face!" Trump was quoted as saying. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

Fiorina was pushed back into Thursday's undercard debate — which is also being held in Charleston — because of slumping poll numbers. Trump, as he has been for each of the first five debates, remains front and center at the main event.
