I wonder if Alicia Machado is having a good week? On one hand, she’s in the news and gets to talk about Hillary Clinton. On the other hand, she has to talk about Donald Trump.
Hillary Clinton brought up Machado at Monday night’s first presidential debate, and accused Trump of sexism, citing his use of the terms “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping”, referring to Machado’s weight and ethnicity.
As you know by now, Machado has spent her week doing a flurry of interviews and speaking out against Trump, whose comments about her weight allegedly led the young woman to develop eating disorders. His comments about her body have been documented for 20 years and he is still attacking her for it.
The Street found an old interview with Trump and Machado and it shows Trump’s true colors.
Anyone who says she’s being opportunistic by speaking out now needs to watch the video, because it’s clear she’s been trying to stand up to him for his comments for years.
Trump talks about Machado gaining weight, and her response…“I don’t think so… I don’t think so.”
