Awful! Donald Trump is at it again, attacking Alicia Machado for gaining weight and being ‘the absolute worst.’ When he called into ‘Fox & Friends’ Sept. 27, he attacked the former Miss Universe, claiming the organization had a ‘tremendously difficult’ time with her. Hear his harsh remarks!
Donald Trump, 70, did not hold back when he called into Fox & Friends and called Alicia Machado, 39, “the absolute worst,” the organization has “ever” had. He was asked if Hillary Clinton, 68, and her comments got under his skin during the first presidential debate Sept. 26. Donald claimed they didn’t until “the very end.” He described the moment, and slammed Alicia: “When she [Hillary] brought up the person, I know that person, that person was a Miss Universe person, and she was the worst we ever had. The worst. The absolute worst. She was impossible. And she was a Miss Universe contestant, and ultimately a winner, who they had a tremendously difficult time with as Miss Universe.” Wow!
When the hosts attempted to ask another question, seemingly trying to pull away from the controversial topic, Donald continued to speak negatively about the 1996 pageant winner. “She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem,” he said. “We had a real problem. Not only that — her attitude … So Hillary went back into the years and she found this – this was many years ago – and found the girl, and talked about her like she was Mother Teresa, and it wasn’t quite that way, but that’s okay, Hillary has to do what she has to do.”
Donald has been said to have called Alicia “Miss Piggy” in the past, as she was reported to have gained 60 pounds after she won the Miss Universe title. Hillary spoke of Alicia in her 2016 debate speech as Donald pointed out. Right after it ended, she tweeted an interview with her. In the video, the former pageant star told her side, in Spanish, of her experience with Donald. “He was overwhelming, I was so scared of him,”she said. “He’d yell at me all the time. He’d tell me, ‘You look ugly,’ or ‘You look fat.’ Sometimes he’d ‘play’ with me and say, ‘Hello, Miss Piggy,’ ‘Hello, Miss Housekeeping.'” OMG!
Donald Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping."

In the video, Donald is seen saying, “She weighed 118 lbs. or 117 lbs., and she went up to 160 or 170. So this is somebody who likes to eat.” Just awful! Now, Alicia is a strong supporter of Hillary, and she’s even documented everything on her Instagram. She posted a photo just 5 weeks ago that she was a U.S. citizen and said that she would be voting for Hillary in November. Alicia even tagged Donald in the caption that said, “All my power and my support become with my next President @hillaryclinton Miss Housekeeping and miss Piggy Can Vote @realdonaldtrump”. Regardless of her political views, we’re glad to see Alicia is standing up for herself!
At the end of her interview she revealed why she chose to finally speak up. “I am an American citizen, and I am going to vote. That’s why I dare speak about all this. I think Donald Trump definitely lacks the ability, experience, preparation, and human qualities, to be president of the United States,” Alicia said.
These new comments come right on the heels of the first presidential debate. Both Donald and Hillary made claims that stirred up some disputes. As they went tit for tat discussing gun control, racism, and many more important issues, the candidates were fact-checked and the outcome was pretty crazy. You can check that out right here!
