Conservative Media Begins ‘Fat Slut’ Shaming Alicia Machado For Criticizing Trump

Former Miss Universe Alicia Machado dealt with a lot of abuse from Donald Trump while she wore the crown. Trump publicly fat shamed her, mocked her for the fact she was originally from Venezuela and made her life a living hell. He called her “Miss Piggy” because of her weight, and “Miss Housekeeping” because of her nationality, in an effort to twist her actual title as “Miss Universe” into an insult against her.

Machado’s history with Trump was used as an example by Hillary Clinton of Trump’s attitude toward both women and immigrants during the recent presidential debate. Hillary went down the list of abusive ways Trump treated her, and his only response at the time was to pretend like he didn’t know what she was talking about.

Trump would later experience a sudden recovery from amnesia, when he went onto Fox News to defend his treatment of her by saying that the “massive” amount of weight she gained justified it.

Taking a cue from their woman-hating leader, conservative media is now gathering to re-victimize this woman for having the courage to speak truthfully about Trump. Right-wing trash sites like The Daily Caller are engaging in a “Fat Slut” shame campaign against her for telling the truth about how Trump treats women.

The Daily Caller suggests that Miss Machado was so incredibly overweight that she was about to have her role as Miss Universe taken away from her — but luckily Trump was there to save the day. They repeated his story about how he kept the bad people from stripping Machado of her role by helping her exercise and slim down. In reality, he forced her to work out in public with the press and media outlets filming her like she was a side show. Machado said it was one of the most degrading and humiliating experiences of her life.

As if that isn’t bad enough, they are also accusing her of being an adult video star. Of course, they have absolute zero evidence of this but they said it anyway. They continued on to talk about how she also appeared in Playboy magazine, which did happen twice, as if that is somehow newsworthy. Melania Trump did literally the same exact thing in a different magazine and conservatives actually applauded her for it.

This sad affair is a perfect example of how conservatives view women. They’re protected property when they “belong” to one of their own, but if they are independent then they are second class citizens at best.

It gets worse if they actually disagree with something conservatives say or do, because then it’s time for public humiliation. They’re trying to silence women who might speak ill of Trump by making an example out of one of them, as if they were shooting one of many hostages they had.

If there’s anything remotely positive to this story, it’s the fact that Trump is so thin-skinned he needs media sites to smear a woman because he’s too weak to handle her. This thought has to infuriate him when he thinks about it. We need to thank Alicia for taking a stand against these people. She had to know what was coming, and she did it anyway. That’s the kind of strength that Trump will never have.
