NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–September 27, 2016. Hillary for America released a new video featuring former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. Machado shared her story of how Donald Trump bullied her because of her weight and heritage. Hillary Clinton closed her debate tonight with slamming Donald Trump for continually demeaning women like Alicia Machado.
In this video, Machado recounted Donald Trump’s constant verbal abuse, which led to eating disorders after he publicly degraded her by inviting reporters to watch her exercise because she gained weight. Trump would tell her, “You look ugly”, “You look fat”, and other times greeted her with a, “Miss Piggy”, or “Miss Housekeeping”.
Alicia Machado is now empowered to share her personal experience and take action by standing up to Trump’s hate and bigotry. Machado became a naturalized citizen and will be voting for Hillary Clinton.
HILLARY CLINTON: Well one thing, Lester. He tried to switch from looks to stamina, but this is a man who has called “women pigs, slobs, and dogs.” And someone who has said, “Pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers.” Who has said, “Women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good of a job as men.”
DONALD TRUMP: I never said that.
HILLARY CLINTON: And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest – he loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them – and he called this woman “Miss Piggy,” then he called her “Miss Housekeeping” because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name—
DONALD TRUMP: Where did you find this? Where did you find this?
HILLARY CLINTON: Her name is Alicia Machado, and she has become a U.S. citizen, and you can bet –
DONALD TRUMP: Oh, really?
HILLARY CLINTON: — she’s going to vote this November.
