If You Look Up Misogynistic Slimeball In The Dictionary, Guess Who’s Picture Comes Up?
Donald Trump just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to completely degrading women, especially when it comes to their looks. His idiotic assholery was put on display during the debate when the issue of 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado was brought up. As Hillary Clinton pointed out, quite justified in her anger, Trump was an absolutejerky sexist and racist to Ms. Machado.
“…[H]e called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina.”
The New York Times reveals even more about just how horrible he was to Alicia Machado. He went with her to the gym with reporters in tow and body shamed her IN FRONT OF THE PRESS saying, “This is somebody who likes to eat.”
And, instead of apologizing for the disgusting rhetoric he spewed forth, he doubled down when talking about her on Fox News this week.
“She gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”
According to Vanity Fair, in another interview, it was far, far, FAR worse. And somehow, for some reason, Trump seems to think HE is the victim in all of this.
“I could just see Alicia Machado, the current Miss Universe, sitting there plumply [sic]. God, what problems I had with this woman. First, she wins. Second, she gains 50 pounds. Third, I urge the committee not to fire her. Fourth, I go to the gym with her, in a show of support. Final act: She trashes me in The Washington Post. . . . What’s wrong with this picture?”

Not content with just making life hell for Alicia Machado, People magazine states that another Miss Universe contestant who participated alongside Ms. Machado had a similar experience.
Former Miss Australia Jodie Seal “said that Trump insulted the contestants’ bodies as they prepped for competition.”
“He was calling some girls some pretty horrible names as well, he said to me myself, ‘Suck your stomach in,’ or ‘Suck your gut in’….He was always wanting us to be sexy, wear your swimsuits out.”
Very Few Women Seem To Be Able To Escape Donald Trump’s Misogyny
Trump has a thing for beauty pageants, having previously owned the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe which he sold last year, according to Vanity Fair, but his disgusting misogyny wasn’t confined to his time around beauty queens. Not many women seemed to escape his body shaming.
Louise Sunshine joined Trump’s real-estate business in the mid-70s. Trump seemed far more interested in her figure than her work. Sunshine claims that Trump had a picture of her called “a fat picture” that he loved to shove into her face when he was mad at her because, as she said, “He just is that way”. She felt that she had to keep her weight down and struggled to meet Donald’s disgustingly ridiculous beauty standards. Trump, of course, denies the allegations.

In May 2016, the New York Times did comprehensive research into just how horrible Trump is to women and the picture that is painted is rather sickening.
“The New York Times interviewed dozens of women who had worked with or for Mr. Trump over the past four decades, in the worlds of real estate, modeling and pageants; women who had dated him or interacted with him socially; and women and men who had closely observed his conduct since his adolescence. In all, more than 50 interviews were conducted over the course of six weeks.
Their accounts — many relayed here in their own words — reveal unwelcome romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form, a shrewd reliance on ambitious women, and unsettling workplace conduct, according to the interviews, as well as court records and written recollections. The interactions occurred in his offices at Trump Tower, at his homes, at construction sites and backstage at beauty pageants. They appeared to be fleeting, unimportant moments to him, but they left lasting impressions on the women who experienced them.”
Temple Taggart, who was Miss Utah in 1997, gives one account of just how creepy Trump would be and how free he felt with his unwanted sexual advances.
Yes, indeed, this was extremely inappropriate, made doubly worse by the fact that he was married to Marla Maples at the time. But, Trump doesn’t care. He just doesn’t care. He is willing to shame women about their bodies, do what he pleases with them and just treat them like dirt and it doesn’t even seem to faze him one bit. And this is the man some want to be President? Heaven forbid.
