Ex-beauty queen hits back after Trump attack

Ex-beauty queen hits back after Trump attack

Machado has been working with the Clinton campaign this year and did recently become a citizen and will vote against Trump.

"Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an "angel" without checking her past, which is awful!", Trump tweeted at 5:14 a.m. ET.

Two of the top searches related to Machado refer to him calling her "Miss Piggy" and another concerns accusations from 1998 that she once drove a getaway vehicle after her then boyfriend shot someone and that she made a threat against the judge in the case.

Spanish-language outlets in the United States are also playing up the story. Trump said in his Twitter messages in the early hours of Friday.

The California daily La Opinion ran a series of internet memes mocking the incident. Machado has endorsed Clinton and has become one of her most prominent surrogates since Monday's presidential debate.

She said Trump, who owned the pageant at the time, had called her "Miss Housekeeping" and "Miss Piggy" when she gained weight after winning the contest. When she gained some 40 pounds a few months later, Trump was livid.

Alicia Machado responded Friday to Donald Trump's early morning twitter attacks against her, in which he referred to her as "disgusting", "a con", and urged people to "check out [her] sex tape and past".

"He said to me, 'suck your stomach in. He was a bad person with me", she told Cooper. "How dare he blame her and say that he helped her?"

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016What kind of man stays up all night to smear a woman with lies and conspiracy theories? "A lot of things are coming out that I wasn't aware of".

Machado was thrust into the election spotlight when Hillary Clinton referred to her during Monday's presidential debate, blasting Trump for allegedly calling the 1996 Miss Universe victor "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping" at the time.

"Her name is Alicia Machado, and she has become a USA citizen, and you can bet she's going to vote this November". "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".

Noah recounted several moments in the recent past when Trump called out his fellow candidates, including saying Clinton doesn't have "the look to be president". He suggested Clinton had helped her gain citizenship.
