Miss Universe Fat-Shamed By Trump Slams Him In New Clinton Campaign Vid

September 27, 2016 9:58 a.m.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a video follow-up to the first presidential debate on Monday featuring Alicia Machado, the 1996 winner of the formerly Trump-owned Miss Universe competition, to illustrate how Trump treats women.

After Clinton brought up Trump’s comments about women during the debate, the campaign released a video of Machado recounting her experience with the GOP nominee as a former pageant winner.

“He’d yell at me all the time,” the subtitles read as Machado speaks in Spanish. “He’d tell me, ‘You look ugly,’ or, ‘You look fat.'”

Machado goes on to cite ad campaign work that she did as a Miss Universe winner, saying that she was never paid.

The video also notes Trump’s comments encouraging Machado to lose weight, which he doubled down on Tuesday morning, calling Machado “the absolute worst.”

“This is a man who doesn’t realize the damage he causes,” Machado concludes in the video. “Donald Trump definitely lacks the ability, experience, preparation, and human qualities, to be president of the United States.”

During the debate, Clinton used Trump’s past comments about Machado to illustrate how he treats women.

“He called this woman ‘Miss Piggy,’ then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina,” Clinton said. “Donald, she has a name.”
