Donald Trump Needlessly Slut-Shamed Alicia Machado At The Debate: "She's No Girl Scout"

THE SEX TAPE DOESN'T EVEN EXIST!! (Though that's besides the point)

To say that last night's debate was a sh*tshow would be an understatement. Donald Trump began the night with a press conference featuring sexual abuse accusers of Hillary Clinton's husband, days after he himself was revealed to be a self-described sexual predator. As if that wasn't enough, he doubled-down on his "locker room talk" stance about the whole ordeal, and managed to make his already controversial comments about former beauty queen Alicia Machado worse.

To catch you up (if you're lost), Machado became Miss Universe in 1996. Donald Trump, as owner of the foundation, made the news after making public statements about the 40 lb. weight gain of the beauty queen a few months post-win. He taunted her both publicly and privately— she was only 19-years-old at the time.

Fast forward to the first debate, Clinton brought up her powerful story. Donald lost his mind and went on an explosive tirade from Fox and Friends to Twitter. He went on a 3am rant and said many things, and encouraged people to watch her sex tape (which doesn't exist). Anderson Cooper made space for Trump to clear up his insults last night, and he did the worst thing possible (as he's known to do).

"In the days after the first debate, you sent out a series of tweets from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m., including one that told people to check out a sex tape," (the silver fox) Andersoon Cooper said. "Is that the discipline of a good president?"

"No, it wasn’t saying, ‘check out a sex tape.’ It was just ‘take a look at the person she built up to be this wonderful girl scout, who was no Girl Scout.’" 

#1. It's a lie, you said it. #2. There is apparently no sex tape, wtf. #3. WHO CARES IF THERE IS? Does that make it okay for you to call her names?To Basically, he just said that she can take his horrific insults because she's a grown woman with sexual experiences. Hmph! Luckily, Twitter called him out for it.

Hillary had a lot to say on the subject as well, including the following: "What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women. What he thinks about women, what he does to women, and he has said that the video doesn't represent who he is. But i think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is."

Not that hard to say #ImWithHer on that one. Check out the exchange below.
