In the final moments of the first presidential debate Monday night, Hillary Clinton brought up Alicia Machado, a former winner of Trump’s Miss Universe pageant, who told Inside Edition earlier this year that Donald Trump referred to her as “Miss Housekeeping” and “Miss Piggy” after she gained weight following her victory in 1996. “After that episode, I was sick, anorexia and bulimia for five years,” Machado said of the ridicule from Trump. “Over the past 20 years, I’ve gone to a lot of psychologists to combat this.”
As Clinton mentioned during the debate, Machado became a U.S. citizen earlier this year and “you can bet she’s going to vote this November.” In response, Trump repeated the question, “Where did you find this?” and later defended the derogatory comments he has made in the past about Rosie O’Donnell. Tweeting in Spanish following the debate, Machado thanked Clinton for respecting women, adding, “I’m with you!”
This morning on Fox and Friends Trump essentially doubled down on his comments about Macahdo.
Oh yeah, I am sure the women are just DYING to vote for this misogynist asshole."She gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem." —Trump just defended his attacks on Fmr. Miss Universe Alicia Machado. pic.twitter.com/HbVtaBpK3R— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) September 27, 2016
Trump also doubled down on his attacks against Rosie O'Donnell last night:
"I said very tough things to her,” Trump admitted. “And I think everybody would agree that she deserves it, and nobody feels sorry for her.”
There are still going to be some women who vote for Trump, probably the same ones who consistently vote for Republicans working hard to strip them of their rights and reducing them to breeding stock, but I think the majority of women are going to have a very visceral and negative view of Donald Trump after learning about his harsh words to this Miss universe contestant and Rosie O'Donnell.
The man's a pig. And I think women know a pig when they see one.
