It’s Been 20 Years Since Trump Bullied Alicia Machado—She Fights Back!

During last night’s debate Hillary Clinton brought up a name that Donald Trump is very familiar with, Alicia Machado. Trump bullied the 1996 Miss Universe by calling her fat and even referring to her as “Miss Piggy.” This was after the Venezuelan beauty gained about 15 pounds, weighing around 130 pounds, which doesn’t sound like too much, but this gave Trump the leverage to cause her extreme pain and embarrassment.

“She gained a lot of weight. It was a real problem,” said Trump during the debate. “We had a real problem.” A problem he was focused on addressing in front of the media. He called Machado names, such as “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” and held press conferences so that the media could film her while she exercised.
