So here's a quick rundown of the latest Trump fiasco:
On Tuesday, CNN published footage from the press conference in which Trump and a trainer casually discussed the need for Machado’s weight to get back down to an acceptable number. Machado would later claim she was simply planning to work out at the gym that day and that she was caught off-guard by the reporters Trump invited to watch. “I had my self-esteem on the floor,” she said. “It was the most horrible moment that some girl can [have].”Just a Note: During the first debate, Trump said a little too much:
Hillary Clinton invoked Machado’s name as a reminder of Trump’s history of crude commentary about women. "...he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name: Her name is Alicia Machado. She has become a U.S. citizen,” Clinton replied. “And you can bet she’s going to vote this November.”
Trump turned one of the GOP's best Clinton attacks around on himself: When Clinton brought up Trump's debt and business dealings, she cited a report that said the real-estate mogul might owe "Wall Street and foreign banks" as much as $650 million. Trump went on a tirade to defend himself
He and others have cast on Clinton many times, accusing her of coziness with the industry because of her paid speaking engagement at banks … Of course, getting paid by Wall Street is very different from owing Wall Street money ... if Trump makes it to the White House, we won't know what kind of favors Trump may owe. Trump praising banks — those "very fine institutions" in his words — couldn't have happened at a worse time.
