Donald Trump Trolled As ‘Miss Congeniality’ On The New Yorker Cover
Next week’s cover of The New Yorker will feature a Donald Trump cartoon ridiculing his comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.
During the first presidential debate Monday, Hillary Clinton attacked Trump over comments that he made about Machado.
“One of the worst things he said,” Clinton began, “He called this woman Miss Piggy. Then he called her Miss Housekeeping because she was Latina.”
The New Yorker released an early look at next week’s cover on Instagram that trolls the Republican nominee. The New Yorker included Trump’s comment to Fox News the morning after the debate in the caption on the post: “She was the worst we ever had, the worst, the absolute worst, she was impossible.”
Trump also said Machado “gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude.” (RELATED: Megyn Kelly Confronts Former Miss Universe About Some Holes In Her Donald Trump Story)
Machado claimed that Trump’s teasing about the weight she gained led her to become bulimic and anorexic. But before becoming Miss Universe — and being teased by Trump — Machado admitted she had problems with eating disorders to the Washington Post.
“I was anorexic and bulimic but almost all of us are…When I was preparing for Miss Universe, it was an obsession for me to not gain weight. By the time I won, I was actually recovering. But the year leading to it, I didn’t eat at all. And whatever I ate, I threw up. I weighed 116 pounds when I won. I was skeletal,” Machado said. (RELATED: Porn Star Campaigns For Hillary Clinton)
