PoliticsTrump, Newt Gingrich, and Rush Limbaugh Are Saying Evil Things About Alicia Machado
An object lesson in how not to talk about women.
Hillary Clinton's savage finishing move during Monday night's debate was revealing the story of Donald Trump, erstwhile proprietor of the Miss Universe pageant, alternately referring to former winner Alicia Machado as "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping." To defend this vile, disgusting sexual harassment, a very cranky Trump took to (where else?) Fox News.
Yikes. Sensibly recognizing the irreparable harm that such unapologetically sexist comments could do to the campaign, today, media-savvy Trump surrogates spearheaded by Newt Gingrich urgently began to conduct damage contr-hahahaha, just kidding.
Yes, this is the same Newt Gingrich who the probably-very-trustworthy web site Celebriot estimates at a cool 260 pounds, only seven shy of the Donald himself. It is the same Newt Gingrich who plaintively admitted during his failed presidential campaign, "I just find it really hard to lose weight."
Then, because he can, sentient jowl Rush Limbaugh piled on with his special blend of inflammatory inanity when he also called Alicia Machado "Miss Piggy" (very original) and falsely accused her of being a former porn star. Click "Play" with care.
Congrats to Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich, and Rush Limbaugh on your three-way tie for being the worst.
