This is now the top news story on the New York Times home page.
Furthermore, the New York Times Editorial Board editorialized:
Hillary Clinton’s Everywoman MomentGranted, there’s no proof that brand new American citizen and Hillary voter Alicia Machado drove the getaway car when her boyfriend shot his dead sister’s husband at her funeral in Venezuela. That’s just what multiple eyewitnesses said.
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD SEPT. 27, 2016
… When Mrs. Clinton finally got to unload what felt like the pent-up frustration of Everywoman, it was powerful. “This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has said women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men,” she said. “And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest. He loves beauty contests, 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. Her name is Alicia Machado.”
And the Venezuelan judge who then accused the telenovela actress of threatening to have him ruined by the president of Venezuela and then murdering him herself for investigating the shooting didn’t ultimately have her convicted.
And nobody seems to have done a DNA test to prove or falsify the Mexican Attorney-General’s allegation that the father of Machado’s daughter is narco cartel boss “El Indio.”
And the sex tape of her cheating on her fiance, Phillies slugger Bobby Abreu, with a fellow contestant on a Mexican reality TV show that caused the ballplayer to dump her may just have been kayfabe for all I know.
Sure, Ms. Machado has been relentlessly pursuing publicity, good, bad, or indifferent, for the last 20 years, but you can hardly expect the Clinton Campaign or the New York Times to fact-check ahead of time anything about her credibility. After all, most all the hundreds of stories about her were in some funny foreign language.
Look, the point is that Alicia Machado is a woman. And a Latina. And an immigrant. Therefore, unlike you, she’s on the right side of history.
Because of that, Alicia Machado has earned the American Dream: to help elect Hillary Clinton President.
That’s just who we are.
