Miss Universe shut down Donald Trump when he commented on her weight in 1996

The video has started doing the rounds again…

Donald Trump hasn’t had the best of weeks, in many people’s eyes he lost the first head to head debate of the election against Hillary Clinton, and then partly attributed his loss on a defective microphone.

This old video of an interview he did alongside 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado, has recently resurfaced, brought to our attention by Indy 100, and is making waves online.

In it Trump makes a comment about Machado’s weight, one of a number of times she was shamed by him during her reign as Miss Universe.

Trump said that Machado was one of the “great Miss Universes, and she had a little problem in the middle where she gained a little weight”.

To which Machado said: “I don’t think so.”

She continued to say that: “I am the most beautiful woman in the world – with 20 pounds or no pounds.”


Machado has also alleged that Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping,” something which Hillary Clinton brought up during Monday night’s presidential debate along with other unflattering comments he has made against women.
