Since Debate Alicia Machado Searched More People Than Kim Kardashian In Google Search.
Interest in former Miss Universe Alicia Machado spiked 5,380% in the last week after Hillary Clinton name-checked her at the first presidential debate because Donald Trump called her Miss Piggy after weight gain and “Miss Housekeeping” because she was Latina.
The story was fanned the morning after the debate because Trump doubled down on his comments in an interview on Fox and Friends.
“She was the worst we ever had the worst she was impossible,” Trump said of the 1996 beauty queen. “She was the winner and you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem.”
Two of the top searches related to Machado refer to him calling her “Miss Piggy” and another concerns accusations from 1998 that she once drove a getaway car after her then boyfriend shot someone and that she made a threat against the judge in the case.
