After winning the Miss Universe crown in 1996, Alicia Machado says Donald Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and demanded her to lose weight.
To Machado’s misfortune, Donald Trump had just taken over the Miss Universe organization right after she won the crown. That same year, she started gaining a significant amount of weight.
“She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat,” Trump said publicly. Because we know he can’t keep his misogynistic thoughts to himself.
Last time we checked, that’s true for any human being. The whole weight-gain controversy turned into a spectacle to the point where Trump had Machado work out in front of media to prove that she was working on losing the weight ASAP. She says all of his verbal abuse led her to become severely depressed and battle with eating disorders for years.
Oh, and he also called her “Miss Housekeeping” – because of her accent.
Same, girl, SAME.
As for what Machado thinks of Trump…
