In the words of the Homicide Hunter Joe Kenda, “Well, my, my, my!” It would appear the Clinton Campaign had been scoping out and planning to misquote Donald Trump’s exchange with the disgraced former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, for almost a year.
The truth of the hit job on Trump came as a new batch of emails from John Podesta, Campaign chair for Hillary Clinton, were made public.
But before we get into the substance, I encourage you to watch the video below in its entirety. This video is from the supposed press conference in which Donald Trump “forced” Alicia Machado to work out in front of the media which she now claims was a horrible and degrading experience.
But contrary to Machado, the video shows something completely different. I wonder how she would have felt if she had her title stripped away which was the pageants right under the contract?
During the first debate, Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, invoked edited comments from that 1997 press conference trying to paint Donald Trump as a monster.
Clinton said, and I quote, “And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest…He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.”
Trump responded with “Where did you find this?”
FoxNews writes, “The answer is: in a 157-page opposition research file that Clinton’s campaign had been using since at least Dec. 19, 2015, the day research director Tony Carrk emailed it…to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta. Podesta’s emails were subsequently hacked and more than 25,000 of them have been released so far by anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.” — FoxNews.com
“In a section on Page 31 titled “Trump Has Devalued And Demeaned Women Repeatedly Throughout His Career,” Trump’s comments to “This Morning” in 1997 are transcribed under the heading “Trump On Miss Universe Pageant Winner.” — ibid.
According to the Podesta file, Trump says “She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds, and she went up to 160 or 170…So this is somebody that likes to eat.”
But if you watch the video in its entirety, you know that there is more to the story. And the alleged comments “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” do not appear.
Trump said, and from this video, it appears to be true, “I [Trump] saved her job.” I guess the old adage is true, “No good deed goes unpunished!”
But the DNC, in its typical dishonest, twisted, win at all cost behavior took one man’s attempt to help and turned it into a gotcha moment.
I am hopeful the American people will see through this façade by not casting their lot with the Clinton Crime Machine.
