Last night toward the end of the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State was able to squeeze in the name of a woman who had been previously "victimized" by the Republican candidate, Alicia Machado. Ms. Machado was the first winner of the Miss Universe pageant after Trump had purchased it in 1996.

Along with the win, however, she was later subject to the billionaire's bullying -- he allegedly called her everything from "Miss Piggy" to "Miss Housekeeping" and then blindsided her with a pre-arranged press shoot after his organization had scheduled a workout session intended to kickstart her exercise program because she had gained weight following the contest victory.

A new Clinton campaign video released after the debate entitled "Trump Victim - Alicia Machado" shows the former Miss Universe recounting in Spanish her post-pageant humiliation and revealing how the ordeal contributed to her subsequent eating disorders. Now, as Ms. Clinton pointed out last night, Ms. Machado is an American citizen who will be voting Democrat come election day.
