Donald Trump continued his attacks against former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado Friday morning, unleashing a series of tweets that labeled her “disgusting” and a “con,” and encouraged his supporters to uncover her “sex tape.” The allegation that Machado once starred in a porn film has been debunked by numerous sources.

The smear campaign comes days after the first presidential debate on Monday, when Hillary Clinton said Trump had called Machado “Miss Piggy” to ridicule her appearance. Following the debate, Trump doubled down on his fat-shaming by calling Machado’s previous “massive” weight gain a “real problem.”
