Former Miss Universe hits back after early morning Donald Trump Twitter barrage

NEW YORK – This morning, Donald Trump told America to “check out sex tape” of a former Miss Universe that he fat-shamed decades ago after his rival, Hillary Clinton, brought her up in their debate this week.

Early Friday morning, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted about Alicia Machado, a Latina former Miss Universe who Trump allegedly fat-shamed after she won the beauty contest but gained weight. Reportedly, he followed her to gyms back then in highly-publicized episodes and said things like “this is somebody who likes to eat.”

Machado says she was traumatized by Trump’s treatment and delved into bulimia and eating disorders, and his rival Hillary Clinton brought her up in last Monday’s first debate. Clinton told the massive audience that Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” among other derogatory names and that she was now a U.S. citizen who would be voting this November.

After the debate, Trump said “She gained a massive amount of weight…it was a real problem.”

Once the debate numbers came out from the mainstream media, basically declaring that Clinton won, Trump hit back via Twitter. In the early morning hours Friday, Trump tweeted “Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an ‘angel’ without checking her past, which is terrible!

“Using Alicia M in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con.

“Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?”

Following Trump’s barrage, Machado hit back later Friday, first saying “I will not be bullied or silenced” and then releasing the following statement:

“The Republican candidate and his campaign are, once again launching attacks, insults and are attempting to revive slanders and false accusations about rny life, in order to humiliate, intimidate, and unbalance rne. These attacks are cheap lies with bad intentions. This, of course, is not the first time the candidate insists on discrediting someone or insists on dernoralizing women, minorities, and people of certain religions through his hateful carnpaign. This is definitely one of his most frightful characteristics. Through his attacks, he’s atternpting to distract from his campaign, real problems and his inability to be the leader of this great country. When I was young, the now candidate, humiliated me, insulted me, disrespected me both publicly and privately in the cruelest way. The same way this happened to rne, it’s clear that throughout the years, he’s continued his actions and behavior with other women. Therefore, I will continue to stand on rny feet, sharing my story and my absolute support for Secretary Clinton, on behalf of all wornen — my sisters, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, women within the community. I want to thank all of my Latinas and those who have supported me and given me love and respect for my career, and as a hurnan being. I became a United States citizen because my daughter was born here and because I wanted to exercise my rights, among them, I wanted to vote. I will continue standing firm in my lived experience as Miss Universe and even stronger with your support. I’ve been so pleas. and honored by so rnany kind and heartfelt words. I’m focusing on my career and my work as a rnother, and I will continue taking positive steps for the Latino community. I will continue being an activist for women’s rights and fighting for the respect we deserve. I appreciate all your love and thank you again for your support.”

    Trump supporters:

    “welfare mothers are getting $6,000 a year in food stamps and I shouldn’t have to pay for it….Besides, they don’t pay any taxes, anyways!”

    “Isn’t it awesome that trump is such a great businessman that he avoided paying any taxes for 18 years? Makes him a genius!”

      The sad thing is these Trump supporters actually think that the self serving Donald Trump is going to be looking out for their best interest. He will be looking out for himself and his other millionaire buddies and that’s about it. He is willing to say anything to get your vote though. I guess this explains why our local city government is such a sham. These same people keep voting in the likes of Eric, Travis and Janet.

      When Hillary’s financial advisors tell her to do something that will make or save her millions of dollars, she takes their advice too. The difference being, when Trump did it, it was perfectly legal and didn’t require any emails to be bleached away or co-conspirators to be granted immunity. if you are going to choose Hillary over Trump, you must enjoy being lied to.

          There has never been anything linking Trump to racism. Only nonsense liberal media badgering. He has no control over who his followers are. Personally the BLM movement is creating more racist than ever before. They are forcing white people to hate them.

          I not say I was going to vote for Hillary or say I supported her at all. All I did was speak the truth about Trump. He is a racist, sexist bigot.
          He is all about himself and his billionaire buddies not care less about the common man, the average man. He has just pulled the wool over all you.

            Trump launched his campaign calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” who are “bringing crime” and “bringing drugs” to the US. His campaign is largely built on building a wall to keep these immigrants out of the US.
            He called for a ban on all Muslims coming into the US. He has since expanded this ban to include anyone from specific countries, including possibly France and Germany.
            When asked at a Republican debate whether all 1.6 billion Muslims hate the US, Trump said, “I mean a lot of them. I mean a lot of them.”
            He argued that Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who’s overseeing the Trump University lawsuit — should recuse himself from the case because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who’s endorsed Trump, later called such comments “the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
            Trump has been repeatedly slow to condemn white supremacists who endorse him, and he regularly retweets messages from white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
            He tweeted and later deleted an image that showed Hillary Clinton in front of a pile of money and by a Jewish Star of David that said, “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” The tweet had some very obvious anti-Semitic imagery, but Trump insisted that the star was a sheriff’s badge, and said his campaign shouldn’t have deleted it.
            Trump has repeatedly referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has said she has Cherokee ancestors, as “Pocahontas.”
            At the Republican convention, he officially seized the mantle of the “law and order” candidate — an obvious dog whistle playing to white fears of black crime, even though crime in the US is historically low.
            In a pitch to black voters, Trump said, “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

            “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” – Donald Trump 1991

            The illegal immigrants are illegal. Islam isn’t a race, so wanting to take drastic measures to curb their invasion is not racist. You don’t get to have it both ways on Paul Ryan. Hillary openly courts the Black Lives Matter vote–the most racist, vile bunch of opportunistic looters in the same country she wants to rule over. You’re wrong about Trump’s “candidate of law and order” comments and I suspect you know it–he is endorsed by law enforcement, ICE border patrol, and our military. Hillary wishes she could have their backing without doing anything to earn it. Stay tuned and pay attention.. before this is over, Hillary is going to need immunity too.

            Blowing smoke out of your nether regions there, seventhson.

            Trump endorsed by the military, hardly.
            Compare Trump’s haul of 88 to the 500 retired generals and admirals who took out a full-page ad in support of Mitt Romney in 2012.
            And none of the 88 signatories supporting Trump was a service chief or led a major combatant command.
            Among prominent ex-military and national-security leaders, the edge clearly belongs to Clinton.
            Not to mention Trump’s public feud with the Khan family, that did not go over well at all with Iraq & Afghanistan war vets.

            As to ICE & Border patrol endorsing Trump, that is a flat out lie.
            It is completely, entirely,and undeniably illegal for federal agencies—including ICE to endorse political candidates per the Hatch Act.

            What is the flavor of that Trump kool-aid that you have been drinking?
            You are the one that needs to “pay attention and tune in” there, son.
