Donald Trump Attacks Another Woman–This Time Over Weight Issues

September 27, 2016

When you are in a hole just stop digging.  Lest Trump forgot the mission now is to attract voters to his campaign……

Donald Trump pushed back against criticism he received from Hillary Clinton during last night’s debate regarding his treatment of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, saying “she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”

Trump made his remarks on “Fox and Friends” this morning in response to Clinton pointing out that Trump called Machado “Miss Piggy” while berating the Republican nominee’s overall treatment of women.

“She was the winner, and, you know, she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem,” Trump said of Machado. “We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her.”

Trump spoke about Machado’s appearance today while answering a question about whether or not Clinton had gotten under his skin. He said that she hadn’t done so, and went on to describe Machado as “the worst we ever had,” a reference to Miss Universe winners.

Machado, while representing Venezuela, competed and won Miss Universe in 1996 when she was 19 years old. She gained weight after winning the competition, and accused Trump of humiliating her based upon her appearance shortly thereafter.

After Miss Universe, she acted in international soap operas and had a brief stint promoting a weight loss product. She appeared in a 2006 edition of Mexican Playboy.

She became a U.S. citizen in May of 2016, and has become a supporter of Clinton.
