Donald Trump Is a Pig

So it turns out that Donald Trump’s big attack that he delicately held back on last night was…Bill Clinton’s affairs. Devastating! That bit of non-news would have turned things around, I’m sure. So why did he change his mind? “I didn’t feel comfortable doing it with Chelsea in the room,” he said this morning.  What a sensitive guy.

In related news, Hillary Clinton really got under Trump’s skin last night. “He loves beauty contests,” she said, “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.”

“Where did you find this? Where did you find this?” Trump demanded. Today he couldn’t stop himself from attacking back:

During an interview on Fox News on Tuesday morning, Trump brought up Machado on his own and launched into an attack on her credibility, saying that she had “attitude” and was a “real problem” for Miss Universe officials. “She was the worst we ever had. The worst. The absolute worst. She was impossible,” Trump said. “… She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem.”

What a pig.
