This week, we had the first presidential debate. The two candidates, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, faced off on Monday. Donald Trump was the clear loser. His constant snorting also started some rumors about Donald Trump being a cocaine user.
At the end of the debate, Clinton brought up a former Miss Universe winner from Donald Trump’s past. Alicia Machado was the first winner of the pageant under Donald Trump. He treated her horribly.
“One of the worst things he said is about a woman in a beauty contest. He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name. Her name is Alicia Machado, and she has become a U.S. citizen. And you can bet she is going to vote this November.”
Here is Machado herself talking about it:
Donald Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping."

Only 27 percent of the people watching the debate actually thought that Trump did well. I guess these ladies would agree; say hello to the “Trumpettes.” They are shown here criticising Machado because she gained weight.
Women need to stick together. We shouldn’t be putting each other down like this.
These women refer to Trump as a “God,” so I don’t think we can expect too much in the way of decency out of them:
One of these ladies, Sandee, said:
“I think if he keeps on point and keep telling us what you’re going to do and keep talking positive the way you are, he’s going to win. We all feel the same way. We always have for years. So we finally have this god that’s gonna come down and help us all.”
They are organizing. They have a website. I’m scared.
From their about page:
“We are sure that with Donald J. Trump we will get the best of the best to run our country because he is intelligent has incredible business acumen, and he cannot be bought or bullied. He is a man of fine character and it reflects in observing his family. His children are in every way what any parent would be proud of.”
“Your job as a Trumpette is to help get the real Donald J. Trump elected, not the one the press wants you to believe in. No one networks better than women so introduce the real man to your family, your friends, the people you work with and anyone you come in contact with. No matter whom you meet, where or how, just take a few minutes and talk about Trump. Ask them what they think and then be ready to explain why you think Donald Trump will be the best President for all of America.”
