This news should come to a surprise to no one.
It’s no secret there is a mountain of evidence that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is an outspoken, sexist pig. And that’s putting it mildly.
But the latest lady coming forward isn’t just a average joe. She’s a former Miss Freakin Universe. That’s right, Venezuelan native Alicia Machado, who took home the crown in 1996, is stepping forward to tell her story of how Mr. Trump publicly body shamed her for gaining weight after winning the title.
Disgusted yet? It gets worse.
What started out as name calling with Trump dubbing her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping,” turned into a full throttle campaign against the beauty queen.
While you may think this is just a “he said she said” scenario (Alicia went on Inside Edition to tell her story), there is actual audio and video proof of the pageant owner’s remarks. On the Howard Stern Show, Trump notoriously called her “an eating machine” and he followed up by bringing a camera crew to watch her work out.
So that’s the word in gross Trump news today. Sorry we couldn’t bring you something happier!
