At Monday’s debate, Hillary Clinton rightly called out Donald Trump for his incredibly long record of misogyny — and Trump hasn’t stopped fuming about it since. And this is how Trump behaves when he claims he won the debate. Imagine how badly he’d behave if he knew what the polls have shown: that voters think he lost. Badly.

In the wee hours of the morning on Friday, Trump, who prides himself on his “winning temperament,” went on another one of his infamous Twitter rants to further smear, fat-shame, and slut-shame former Miss Universe Alicia Machado as “disgusting.” Trump’s Twitter trolling of Ms. Machado proves yet again — as if we needed another reminder — that he clearly lacks the temperament (not to mention even a shred of respect for women) to be president.




Watch the 30 seconds from Monday’s debate that literally kept Trump up last night:


HILLARY: Well, one thing, Lester, he tried to switch from looks to stamina. But this is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs. and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers. Women don't deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men. And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest, he loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.

Of course Hillary Clinton was right. Trump has said those things — and more.

  • Throughout his career, Trump has used slurs and insults to attack women. He has called various women “big, fat pig,” “disgusting pig,” “dogs” “slob,” “disgusting,” and “animals.”

  • Trump insinuated that FOX anchor Megyn Kelly was menstruating during the first Republican debate as a way to dismiss what she was saying. “‘You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever,’ he told anchor Don Lemon during an appearance on CNN. The crudeness of the comment sparked an immediate flurry of rebukes.”

  • During the GOP primary, Trump criticized Carly Fiorina’s face, saying: "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she's a woman, and I’m not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

  • Trump once screamed at a woman attorney — “You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting” — when she said she needed to take a break during a deposition to pump milk for her breastfeeding baby.]

  • Trump said “there are major problems” with women serving in combat and on Twitter, he blamed the epidemic of sexual assault in the military on letting men and women serve together. And then he doubled down on his tweet during the “Commander-in-Chief Forum” in September, saying that his 2013 tweet was “correct.”

  • Trump said Hillary Clinton doesn’t have “a presidential look” — which, given his history of insulting women for their physical appearance, was interpreted by many as sexist.

Now Trump and his campaign surrogates are on the warpath, attacking Alicia Machado with despicable, plainly sexist insults about her appearance and her past — proving just how right Hillary Clinton was on Monday night and why we must do everything we can to elect her this November.
