Alicia Machado’s Classy Response To Trump Saying She Did Porn Is A Must-Read (QUOTES)

Former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado is being victimized once again by Republican nominee Donald Trump, an avowed racist and sexist. Trump took to Twitter last night and told his followers to “go watch her sex tape” (which doesn’t exist) and attempted to slut-shame her for appearing topless in Playboy magazine. He’s reignited the feud with her after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton brought up his fat-shaming attacks on Machado during Monday’s debate.

First off, the hypocrisy is truly mind-boggling. Trump, the nominee of the “family values” Republican Party, just told his conservative voters to go watch pornography, which is labelled a “public health crisis” in the Republican Party’s official 2016 platform. Secondly, his own wife has appeared naked in magazines, but somehow Machado is “disgusting” for appearing topless.

All that aside, the woman in question, Alicia Machado, took to Instagram to respond to the baseless slut-shaming attacks against her in a very classy way, wrapping herself in the American flag and hitting back against the decidedly un-American Trump:

“El candidato republicano y su equipo de campaña nuevamente están generando ataques, insultos e intentando revivir difamaciones y falsas acusaciones sobre mi vida. Todo eso con la finalidad de intimidarme, humillarme y desequilibrarme una vez más. Los ataques que han surgido son calumnias y mentiras baratas generadas con malas intenciones, que no tienen fundamento que han sido difundidas por medios amarillistas. Ésta, por supuesto, no es la primera vez que enfrento una situación así. Por medio de su campaña de odio, el candidato republicano insiste en desacreditar y desmoralizar a una mujer, lo que definitivamente es una de sus características más aterradoras. Con esto, busca distraer la atención de sus reales problemas y de su incapacidad para pretender ser el líder de este gran país. Cuando era apenas una jovencita, el ahora candidato, me humilló, me insultó, me irrespetó públicamente, como lo hacía usualmente de forma privada de la forma más cruel. Así como esto me pasó a mí, es claro a través de los años, que sus acciones y conductas se han repetido con otras mujeres durante décadas. Por lo tanto, seguiré de pie, compartiendo mi historia, mi apoyo absoluto a la señora Clinton en nombre de las mujeres, de mis hermanas, tías, abuelas, primas, amigas y la comunidad femenina. A mis latinas y en general, quiero agradecerles todo el apoyo, el amor y el respeto, a mi carrera, a mi persona como ser humano y a mi familia. Yo me hice ciudadana de este gran país porque aquí nació mi hija y porque quería ejercer todos mis derechos, entre ellos votar. Continuaré de pie, firme en mi experiencia vivida como Miss Universo y ustedes conmigo apoyándome. He estado tan complacida por tantas palabras amables, por tanto amor. Yo estoy centrándome en mi ocupada carrera, en mi labor de madre y voy a seguir dando pasos positivos para la comunidad latina, seguiré como activista en pro de los derechos de la mujer y el respeto que nos merecemos. Aprecio todo su amor y todo su apoyo nuevamente, gracias”. Miles de bendiciones.

Translated, her text reads:

“The Republican candidate and his campaign team are again generating attacks, insults and trying to revive slanders and false accusations about my life. All this in order to intimidate, humiliate me and throw me off balance again. The attacks that have emerged are slander and lies cheap generated with bad intentions, which have no foundation that have been spread by sensationalist media. This, of course, is not the first time that I faced such a situation. Through their hate campaign, the Republican candidate insists discredit and demoralize a woman, which is definitely one of the most terrifying features.

With this, they are seeking to distract attention from their real problems and [Trump’s] inability to pretend to be the leader of this great country. When I was a young girl, the now candidate humiliated, insulted me, disrespected me publicly, as he usually did privately in the cruelest way. As this happened to me, it is clear over the years that their actions and behavior have been repeated with other women for decades. Therefore, I will keep standing, sharing my story. I absolutely support Mrs. Clinton on behalf of women, my sisters, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, friends and female community.

My Latin and in general, I want to thank all the support, love and respect, my career, my person as a human being and my family. I became a citizen of this great country because my daughter was born here and because I wanted to exercise my rights, including voting. I will continue standing firm in my lived experience as Miss Universe and you with me supporting me. I’ve been so pleased with many kind words, for so much love. I’m focusing on my busy career, in my work as mother and I will continue taking positive steps for the Latino community, I will continue as activist for women’s rights and respect we deserve. I appreciate all your love and all your support again, thanks. “Thousands of blessings.

We applaud Machado for rising above the muck and shutting down Trump’s foul attacks with dignity. We’re delighted she has become an American citizen and gets to cast her first vote against the sexist monster that is Donald Trump.
