Miss Universe strikes back

Spread the love

Former Miss Universe Alicia Machado finally has the chance to get back at Republican nominee Donald Trump for the insensitive and disrespectful comments he made to her in the late 1990s. Ms. Machado, a recent U.S. citizen from Venezuela, won the Miss Universe beauty pageant back in 1996 and has since then been a strong opponent of Donald Trump due to the demeaning and racist remarks he made to her following the competition.

Shortly after her victory, Ms. Machado gained a small amount of weight and this led Mr. Trump to refer to her as “Miss Piggy.” Another instance, Mr. Trump called her “Miss Housekeeping,” insulting her Latina heritage.

These events that took place between Trump and Machado happened in the late 1990s, following the 1996 Miss Universe Competition; however, they have resurfaced this election season because, first and most obviously: Trump is the Republican Presidential Nominee.

Secondly, though, Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton called Trump out and defended Machado at the first debate this past September, when she said “Donald, she has a name. Her name is Alicia Machado. And she has become a US citizen and you can bet she is going to vote this November.” Machado later tearfully thanked Clinton for her defense against Trump’s “Miss Piggy” remarks.

Trump’s supporters have attempted to thwart Ms. Machado’s credibility through digging up ancient accusations against her, but she has continued to fervently speak out against Trump. As reported on the Hacking Immigration Law website back in June, this former Miss Universe got her US citizenship with the intent of voting against Trump, wanting to take a mature path in opposing a Trump presidency.

Just as Ms. Machado, anyone and everyone should exercise their right to vote if they are able. If you are not a US citizen however, you may not register vote, that is a deportable offense. Unfortunately for Trump, Ms. Machado, and many others who have been offended by his disrespectful words, are preparing to cast their ballot for perhaps one of the most unusual elections America has seen in many years.
