Because the consolidated online database of easily searchable media is expanding ever-backwards in time, those who dare to publicly voice fabricated attacks are now well-advised to consider their own position. Somebody once said, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

To wit, Alicia Machado reaped phenomenal personal benefits from Donald Trump’s compassion and largesse during her weight-gain struggle in 1996. Last week she lied by accusing him as being the cause of her anorexia/bulimia:

People Magazine, 2016: “It was very humiliating. I felt really bad, like a lab rat. It had turned into a circus, the joke of ‘The Fat Miss Universe.’ A joke that caused me a lot of pain,” Machado says now. “Long after, I was sick with eating disorders. I wouldn’t eat, and would still see myself as fat, because a powerful man had said so.”

Washington Post, 1997: “I was anorexic and bulimic, but almost all of us are,” Machado says without so much as a blink. “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.”

Considering Miss Machado lied to People magazine about the timeline of her eating disorder and falsely blamed Donald Trump for its generation, her other accusation against him is therefore highly suspicious. That would be the “Miss Housekeeping” fabrication.

Doesn’t this sound rather familiar? Didn’t Michelle Fields falsely accuse Corey Lewandowski of throwing her down to the floor? As Pete Seeger wrote and PP&M aptly sang, “When will they every learn?”

Hillary Clinton is holding out Alicia Machado as some kind of role model. However this woman, the campaign’s new mouthpiece, is a liar, a porn actress, and has a criminal history. Here is what happens when you don’t first conduct Extreme Vetting.

Oh, God, please do not let Hillary when over a stupid fat comment.

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry on the travel office resulted in the indictment of Billy R. Dale, the office’s director, in December 1994, on charges of embezzling $68,000 paid by news organizations for Presidential trips. In November, a jury acquitted Mr. Dale”

Don’t do it, Alicia! Don’t get on the bus!! There’s a trap door under every seat. So, when she’s through with you, she’ll open the one under your seat and you’ll be “under the bus”!!!
