It has been established on numerous occasions over the years that Donald Trump is a male chauvinist pig and sexist. He has called women pigs, told them to lose weight, and said other incredible insensitive things which don’t bear repeating.
And now Trump’s comments are coming back to haunt him in the form of Alicia Machado, former Miss Universe who was called “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeper” by Trump. Machado is speaking out, telling NBC News:
“You know, with 18 years old, when you are growing up, that was horrible for me,” Machado said. “My self-esteem (was) on the floor.”
Machado says she also heard Trump use racist and derogatory remarks about African-Americans:
“I listened to a few comments from him when he was my boss, but I don’t want to talk about it because it’s too much rude for the black community. He’s trying to make up distractions and now he’s in the (black) churches. He’s ridiculous.”
As if all this isn’t bad enough, rather than apologize, Trump has kept up the heat and doubled down on his comments regarding Machado. And now his allies in conservative media are also trying to slag Machado in any way they can.
One of these lowlifes, Paul Joseph Watson, wrote:
“The former Miss Universe was also reportedly the incubus for the child of a notorious Mexican drug kingpin.”
In reality, Machado, who is from Venezuela, was accused — but never indicted — of driving her then-boyfriend to the scene of a shooting. Machado, speaking to CNN Tuesday evening, bravely admitted that she had made mistakes in the past, telling Anderson Cooper:
“You know, I have my past, of course everybody has a past, and I’m no saint girl, but that is not the point now. (Trump) was really rude with me, he tried to destroy my self-esteem. And now I’m a voice in the Latin community. I’m in a great moment in my life and I have a very clear life — and I can show my taxes.”
As the 2016 campaign draws closer to November 8, you’ll be hearing a lot more about Alicia Machado. Because the way Donald Trump treated and continues to treat her shows a pattern of just how big a piece of crap Trump is when it comes to women. He must be really angry now, because he got his ass kicked Monday evening by a woman.
