Believe it or not Donald Trump has managed to etch out a new level of hypocrisy for himself just this past week. It all started when Hillary Clinton reiterated some of the comments he made about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. He reportedly called her “Miss Piggy” after she put on some weight and made a joke about her being a cleaning lady because of her ethnicity. Instead of trying to shy away from these comments Trump doubled down and started calling Machado more names:
In case you were wondering neither implication is true in the strictest sense. It doesn’t appear that Machado required any sort of help “become a U.S. citizen,” though she does say that she looks forward to voting against Trump. And as far as the sex tape it appears that Trump exaggerated….a lot. Anyone surprised?
Machado was on a reality show in 2005 where she was in a scene made to look like a sex tape. You can’t really see anybody’s sexy bits and it’s anyone’s guess whether there was actual penetration going on under the covers which keep you from seeing anyone’s business end. But since the whole thing was recorded in infrared and made to look amateurish Trump seems to think that qualifies as a “sex tape.”
This leads me to ask whether Trump’s own performance in a 2000 Playboy film, where he searches for the “hottest babes NY has to offer” counts as being “in a porn?” I mean Trump’s genitals are never actually visible in any of his scenes nor does he physically engage with any of the models. But since we’re painting with a broad brush why not just call him a porn star?
Which leads us to the next big reveal in Trump’s long and troubled story. It appears that Trump pushed his then-mistress and future wife Marla Maples into doing a nude photo shoot with Playboy back when he was still married to his first wife Ivanka. An editor from Playboy has come forward and verified that Marla wasn’t interested in doing the shoot and worried that it would hurt her career. But, he says, Trump was able to talk her into it and personally negotiated the million dollar payment. I wonder how much of that money actually went to Ms. Maples?
So whether or not this means we get to refer to Trump as a porn star or perhaps some sort of porn manager I cannot decide. But what is clear is that whatever Trump was trying to say about Machado and her sultry past and by extension of Hillary Clinton for being associated with her let’s not forget that he is guilty of that and more. After all even if we do decide that Machado’s sex scene makes her too hot to be associated with a future president, where did we first hear about her? Oh, that’s right she was discovered by Trump. And if Trump finds porn so disgusting, then why did he push a young girl into doing a nude photo shoot and then go on to marry her?
