Hillary’s “Bimbo Eruption” Comment, Alicia Machado, and the 2016 Presidential Election

On Wednesday, September 28, CNN (a.k.a. the Clinton News Network), in an apparent attempt to attack Donald Trump on behalf of their candidate, Hillary Clinton, blared the headline “Miss Universe Strikes Back.”  This headline is a reference to Alicia Machado, Hillary’s new poster child for the war on women by Donald Trump.

This headline is extremely ironic.  First, how is she striking back?  She is the one who brought this up 20 years after the events supposedly took place.

The second irony is the title. It is a reference to the 1980s Star Wars saga in which those “striking back” were the evil Emperor and his right-hand man, the equally evil Darth Vader, who battle against the forces of freedom —those who wanted to make the Republic GREAT AGAIN!

Is CNN saying Hillary is the evil Emperor and Alicia Machado Darth Vader?  Wouldn’t that make Donald Trump Luke Skywalker, one of the greatest heroes in the history of cinema?  Seriously, the irony here is extremely laughable.  CNN may want to rethink this headline; especially since they are trying to help her get elected. But enough on that.

I want to get to Alicia Machado’s statement.  First, one has to wonder whose paying her to drudge this up 20 years later?  Can you say George Soro’s?

She told CNN’s, Anderson Cooper, “I know what I left with him and he knows, too. And he was really aggressive. He was really rude. He was a bad person with me…That is the story that I need to share with my community. We cannot accept no more insults for my Latin community. No more insults for the women. I know very well Mr. Trump and I can see the same person that I met 20 years ago.” — CNN.com

This statement is almost verbatim what she said to Megan Kelly on the Kelly files.  If you are a thinking person, this statement sounds a little to rehearsed?

Third, she accuses Trump of calling her “Miss Housekeeping” and “Miss Piggy.”  Of course, she has no evidence, no eye or ear witnesses, she just puts it out there for all to hear.

Daniella Diaz, writing for CNN explains, “At the presidential debate on Monday, Clinton referenced Machado to make a bigger point to Trump about his public treatment of women — which has become a key campaign issue that hits on his vulnerabilities with both Hispanics and women.” — ibid.

Even if it is true that Trump said this to her 20 years ago, someone, please explain how this is an attack on women (plural)?

I never could wrap my brain around this one.  Are liberals, and Hillary Clinton saying that if I fire a woman from my company because she is lazy, that I must be calling all women lazy?  That’s just stupid!  No rational person would conclude that.

But this is what the Democrats want us to believe.  I, for one, believe women are smarter than that.  Well, maybe not Alicia Machado who actually won the Miss Universe pageant and during her reign thought it was a good idea to gain 50 pounds!

Never one to back down, on Fox and Friends, Trump stood his ground saying, “She [Machado] was the winner and you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. We had a real problem…Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her, so Hillary went back into the years and she found this girl — this was many years ago. And found the girl and talked about her like she was Mother Theresa. And it wasn’t quite that way, but that’s OK. Hillary has to do what she has to do.”

And here is the stickler.  Hillary is the real woman-hating sexist in the 2016 Presidential race!  She only cares about women until they become unprofitable and unable to help her achieve her goal of becoming Emperor, I mean President.  Once she has sucked the life out of these women, she throws them under the bus, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

She was the one who enabled her philandering husband to groped, fondled, and sexually assault women like Gennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, and scores of others, and she said and did nothing to stop him.

Hillary stood by her man so she could ride his coattails.  And when these traumatized women came out to tell their story, Hillary called it a “bimbo eruption.”

Can you imagine if Donald Trump had said that about Alicia Machado?  Of course, Hillary, the Democrats, and the media would accuse Trump of labeling all women everywhere throughout all time bimbos.
