Haven't seen one photo of Machado that might support the supposed

Weight gain. The video of her working out.... sure doesn't look much different than any other photos.

Trump lied. Imagine that.

As a mother of two daughters this whole thing has had me furious.

1. She says she gained about 15 pounds.

Not a "massive amount" of weight.

He also wanted to fire employees at his golf clubs who were overweight or not attractive enough.

6. The Clinton Campaign has cracked it.

They have found the perfect piece of political jujitsu. They discover some footage of some ludicrious vile piece of Trump's past -and smack him directly between the eyes with it. Trump, believing he can't be seen as wrong, spends days trying to convince everyone (a) he didn't say or do it and then (b) trying to justify it. The more he talks - the wilder his story gets and the more people realize just how sick his mind is.

This particular piece of jujitsu let's us all see just how sick Trump's view of women - especially young and attractive women - really is. He is truly disgusting.

7. I just realized how devastating this is for Trump.

Two female commentators on CNN mentioned, in passing, their own struggle with their weight. One of them said the majority of the women in this country look more like her than like Melania Trump. As a woman who is lucky enough to be in the "normal" category of weight and has not had any eating disorders, I've been cringing at the videos of Alicia Machado being forced to work out on TV. I can only imagine how "overweight" and "obese" women, or "normal" and "underweight" women who have struggled with their weight, feel when they see those videos.

9. Usually I don't find beauty contest winners attractive

 

Alicia Machado is an exception. So it is a problem with males too. I saw the clip of him standing over her while she was working out and the immediate thought was, that is the fat girl? Miss Piggy? That girl is gorgeous.

To add, studies have found the majority of males do NOT like the rail thin look. Now there are some women, like some men, that are just thin, nothing wrong with that. But men do not look at a woman like Alicia and think that girl is fat, more likely thought is that girl won the genetic lottery and is close to physically perfect.

8. Bingo HRC campaign had a stroke of genius here but the thing is

So very many women can relate to this weight issue. Boils down to the objectification of women. Trump is so 50 s. Just never made it through the "women's lib" movement. Never grasped the notion that women have fought hard to be on par with men. Basically like anything with Trump he can't grasp any new ideas or change. He can't look beyond his own selfish view and needs.

10. He's so stupid that he believes women find him attractive.

The only thing anyone wants from him is money.

13. I agree 100%

All the women in my life (wife, sister, daughters) know all too well the insane expectations demanded of women. This barbi doll standard cuts deep... deep to the bone deep.

Trump's narcissism will not allow him to be wrong and so his sickness will force him to keep issues in the spotlight longer. That's where the Clinton team has struck gold. Just like not paying taxes makes him smart... he will defend these gaffs for days because narcissists see themselves as being incapable of making mistakes.

14. He's so predictably awful (narcissistic). I would think that at least

Ivanka must feel so very ashamed. No telling what her husband is feeling and no telling what the campaign is asking of the two of them. It is interesting that the family doesn't seem to travel with him nor campaign on their own for him. Sad!

17. The family is busy watching their fortune evaporate.

By the time this campaign is over - Trump will have destroyed his name and wrecked his business interests.

15. Trump is emotionally frail and can't stand to be contradicted and especially ridiculed Clinton

just has to keep making fun of him personally all the way to Nov 9

He will oblige by going completely insane

18. There is a medical diagnosis for that

It's called narcissism. It's not only devastating to the person who has it - but devastating to anything they touch.

19. That's the wrong argument.

 

Whether she gained weight or not, you just don't treat people that way.
