Something I don't think I've seen anyone comment about, regarding Trump's verbal abuse of Alicia Machado: He insults her appearance, and she is a Miss Universe winner, after all. What does a woman have to look like, before this asshole is willing to concede that she looks okay?
What this proves is that attacks on women by guys like Trump have absolutely nothing to do with the victims themselves, but are simply an attempt to beat them down and get them to act properly subservient. Someone like Alicia Machado insults Trump's male identity by the mere fact of having succeeded at something, so he needs to crush her. The same thing is going on with Hillary, and by the way, with the numerous male opponents of him too. He just can't stand to see anyone but himself succeed, so he will do his pathetic best to beat them down. And cultural history makes this a standard pattern among guys like Trump, where a woman is involved.
A hint, Donald: It ain't working with Hillary.
