Samantha Bee rips Donald Trump for Alicia Machado comments

Posted on


Full Frontal switched air dates from Monday to Wednesday night this week so that host Samantha Bee could gather all her resources to properly break down Monday night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Doing this allowed her to observe which particular takeaways were still being talked about days later. The most prominent of these has been Trump’s insults of former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado for weight gain, a controversy that has supported Clinton’s message about Trump.  

“She spent months building an elaborate trap for Trump and he lumbered right into it. All she had to do was step out of his way while he called a woman fat,” Bee said, playing audio from Trump’s Tuesday morning appearance on Fox and Friends, during which he doubled-down on describing Machado’s alleged weight problems as “a real problem.”

“L-O-L. No, you had a stunningly beautiful Miss Universe winner, but you treated her like garbage,” said Bee. “Now you have a real problem — not only with her, but with any woman who’s ever been called fat. Which is all of us. We’ve been dealing with you our whole life.”
