Clinton on Trump’s Miss Universe attacks: ‘Unhinged’

Hours after Donald Trump sent out a series of early morning tweets criticizing Hillary Clinton, a former Miss Universe and the media, the Democratic nominee sent out a tweetstorm of her own.

Clinton retweeted one of Trump’s early morning tweets where he called former Miss Universe Alicia Machado “disgusting” and encouraged his followers to check out her sex tape. Clinton tweeted that Trump’s comments were “unhinged” and then rattled off a series of Trump’s previous comments about women.

The “sex tape” charge appears to be false. Machado had a racy-but-not-naked scene in a reality TV show. And pornographic videos have also circulated online featuring an actress who is misidentified as Machado, according to fact-checking website Snopes.

Machado has come to the forefront of the campaign after Clinton brought her up during the first presidential debate. Trump had previously called her “Miss Piggy” for gaining weight after she was crowned and “Miss Housekeeping” — an apparent reference to her being from Venezuela. Alicia deserves praise for courageously standing up to Trump’s attacks. And he has the gall to blame her—and say he “helped”?

When something gets under Donald’s thin skin, he lashes out and can’t let go. This is dangerous for a president.

Trump obsessively bullies Rosie O’Donnell—an accomplished actor. He insulted Kim Kardashian for her weight—when she was pregnant. Pathetic.

We’ve heard Donald’s insults for years, and his policies reflect this disregard—even contempt—for women.

Trump on equal pay: “Do as good a job” as men.

Abortion? Should be “punished.”

Pregnancy? An “inconvenience.”

Wives working? “Dangerous.”
