As reported in the Huffington Post, Donald Trump dug himself further into a hole of disgusting sexism when he told “Fox & Friends” that a former Miss Universe winner’s weight gain was a “real problem.”
During Monday night’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton attacked the GOP presidential nominee for his many negative comments about women’s appearances. One of the women Clinton referenced was Alicia Machado, a Venezuelan beauty queen who says that Trump’s insults left her with crushing body image issues.
As quoted in Huffington Trump defended himself Tuesday morning by arguing that Machado deserved every bit of his attacks.
“She was the worst we ever had,” he said. “She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem with her.”
His remarks, however disturbing, probably shouldn’t surprise us at this point. The GOP presidential hopeful has a long history of insulting women for the way they look. He’s called Rosie O’Donnell a “fat pig,” told The New York Times’ Gail Collins that she has “the face of a dog,” and claimed that supermodel Heidi Klum is “no longer a 10.”
Oh, One other thing, when it comes to comparing body image, I’ll pick Machado over Trump 🙂
compare Alicia Machado to…
Hey 3rd party Stein/Johnson protest voters: I mean are you really going to let Trump kill Planet Earth because you’re pissed off at Hillary?
Seriously you’re waiting for Hillary to “earn your vote”?
