Alicia Machado was the first Miss Universe after Donald Trump purchased and became executive producer of the popular beauty pageant. After her win, Machado defaulted on her contractual obligation to stay fit.

Machado, who is now a Hillary Clinton supporter and mouthpiece, is back in the news after name Clinton cited her during the first presidential debate on Monday night. After Machado won the competition she got yuge, going on an eating spree and gaining 60 pounds in the process, something that is against the pageant bylaws. In a subsequent interview, Trump called her “Miss Piggy” as well as “Miss Housekeeping.”

On Tuesday, Trump defended these comments by saying that Machado “gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem”, according to CNN. Trump publicly called Machado an “eating machine” on The Howard Stern Show, and even brought a camera crew to a gym to film her working out during her reign as Miss Universe.

On Monday night, Hillary Clinton attacked the Republican candidate for comments he’s made about Machado. “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.”

She was the winner and you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her, so Hillary went back into the years and she found this girl — this was many years ago. And found the girl and talked about her like she was Mother Theresa. And it wasn’t quite that way but that’s ok. Hillary has to do what she has to do. h/t heavy
