Journalists! Your moral and intellectual superiors!!
Right after the debate, Paul McGeough of the Sydney Morning Herald wrote:
Some frown when we try to psycho-analyse Donald Trump. But seriously, his post-debate antics demand further examination, and a possible upgrading from “stupid” to “very stupid”. (…)
In the closing minutes of the debate, Clinton had skewered Trump by graphically humanising his worst sexist and misogynistic traits – with the story of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, who, according to her own account, Trump had demeaned as “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping”, the latter apparently because she was Latina. (…)
Yet, this is what Trump told the gang on the talk show Fox & Friends of Machado, a Venezuelan who, at age 19, was crowned Miss Universe 1996: “She was the worst we ever had … ”
Worst? What was she up to – using the pageant as cover for running drugs, bank robberies or worse? If Trump was insisting that Machado was no Mother Teresa, what was she – a terrorist?
Steve Sailer (who does not write for the Sydney Morning Herald or any other newspaper) also after the debate, found this in the AP archives, probably in less than 15 seconds:
Venezuelan beauty queen Alicia Machado threatened “to ruin my career as a judge and … kill me,” Judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor said on national television.
The 21-year-old Machado, who created an international stir in 1996 when she gained 35 pounds after being crowned Miss Universe, allegedly called the judge after he issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for Juan Rafael Rodriguez Regetti.
Rodriguez, 26, is accused of shooting and wounding his brother-in-law, Francisco Antonio Sbert Mousko, outside a church in Caracas last November where Sbert’s wife _ Rodriguez’s sister _ was being eulogizing.
Rodriguez apparently blamed Sbert for driving her to commit suicide.
The victim’s family accused Machado of driving the getaway car, but Fuenmayor has not indicted her, citing insufficient evidence. The judge said there were no witnesses to place Machado at the scene _ or to back up her claim she was home sick at the time. (…)
The Phillies outfielder — enjoying the greatest season of his career, by the way; right around the time this story broke, he hit homers in six consecutive games — was engaged to former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. In May, she appeared on a Mexican reality television show called “La Granga (The Farm)” and … had sex with a fellow cast member on camera.
In Mexico a few years later, Machado insisted that her new baby was the child of businessman Rafael Hernandez Linares rather than of narco cartel druglord José Gerardo Álvarez Vázquez, a.k.a., El Indio, as Mexico’s Attorney General claimed. (…)
Alicia Machado became a U.S. citizen this year, just in time to vote for Hillary.
After all, that’s the American Dream: importing vast numbers of foreign ringers to elect you President.
“One of the requirements for naturalization is good moral character (GMC)” – Vol 12 Part D – CH – 9.
How much of her lurid life did she disclose to the U.S. government? Theoretically, applicants for citizenship must have “good moral character,” but we all know that “vetting” is racist.
