Last night, Donald Trump spent hours freaking out over Alicia Machado, the Miss Universe winner that he fat-shamed in 20XX. Not content to continue attacking just her weight, Trump threw slut-shaming into the mix as well.

In case you've been in a coma all week, Hillary Clinton brought up Machado and Trump's obnoxious sexism during Monday night's debate. Completely caught off guard, Trump flew into a wild tangent about Rosie O'Donnell, Hillary's mean television commercials and an obvious reference to Bill Clinton's infidelities.

It was a devastating moment for Trump that left him looking like an ass and it was obvious that it got deeply under his already notoriously thin skin because he wouldn't let it go. Instead, he doubled down by continuing to body-shame Machado and alienating any woman that has ever been called "fat," which, as Samantha Bee pointed out speaking for women, "is all of us."

Flailing about for some way to discredit Machado, Trump was alerted to a "sex tape" from 2005 that shows Machado having sex during a reality TV show. I'm using quotes on "sex tape" because the only thing you can see are the covers moving and hear some heavy breathing and light moaning for a little over a minute. It was so tame, they actually aired the clip uncensored on the show, La Granja VIP.

But Trump is Trump so a "sex tape" is "disgusting":

You'll notice the bone he throws to his tinfoil hat wearing followers about Machado's citizenship? She became a citizen in May of this year. If Hillary was involved and planned this attack that far in advance, it would make her the political equivalent of a chess Grandmaster. In what universe would that be a BAD thing?

Aside from that, why exactly is Machado's entirely un-erotic "sex tape" disgusting? Because she was cheating on her then-fiance? This is from a thrice-married man that has bragged for literally decades about all the times he's cheated on his various wives. 

Machado nude Playboy shoot is far, far racier and that doesn't seem to be a problem at all (possibly because his own wife has also posed nude and done light lesbian erotica?). So why would Trump think slut-shaming this tape is a workable strategy? Was any thinking involved at all? Or was this just more of Trump's reflexive and childish need to attack women as yucky and gross?

There's a reason Trump is losing among women voters by double digits. Sure, slut shaming a Latina will play well with his racist and hypocritical base but it's going to piss off a lot of women who are already pissed off at what a misogynistic pig he is. If his daycare handlers can't get him to take a nap, he's going to chase even more women into Hillary's open arms.

The bottom line is that Clinton and her team must be laughing their asses off at not only how easy it was to trip Trump up, but how many news cycles he would waste digging the hole deeper. Donald Trump is simply far too easy to taunt to lead the most powerful nation on the planet.
