Newt Gingrich And Crowd Of Conservative Gays Have A Good Laugh About Woman’s Weight

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was the keynote speaker on Wednesday at the annual conference of the Log Cabin Republicans, where he joined his fellow overweight conservative Donald Trump in throwing stones from a glass house concerning former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

Trump has a long history of denigrating women, which Hillary Clinton brought up during Monday night’s debate. She pointed to Trump’s treatment of Machado as one such example of his misogyny.

Machado says Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Eating Machine” when she gained some weight after winning the competition, which he owned at the time, as well as calling her “Miss Housekeeping,” a shot at her ethnicity.

“You’re not supposed to gain 60 pounds during the year that you’re Miss Universe,” Gingrich said on Wednesday, eliciting laughter. “But, not fair. Even my act of saying that is sexist and proves I’m not being sensitive.”

Of course, anyone with the ability to Google Gingrich’s past is already well aware that he is insensitive and sexist. So this comes as no surprise.

Trump is also doubling down, telling Fox News the day after the debate that she was “the worst we ever had” because she “gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”

He also told Bill O’Reilly, “I saved her job because they wanted to fire her for putting on so much weight. And it is a beauty contest. You know, I mean, say what you want, Bill, I mean, they know what they’re getting into. It’s a beauty contest.”

Additionally, Trump tried to say that he did not know Machado when talking with O’Reilly, contradicting what he said during his “Fox & Friends” interview.

Meanwhile, Trump is a well known fast food lover who does not seem capable of maintaining a healthy weight. And while he isn’t trying to win a beauty competition, he is looking to run the country and his health has come up as an issue. He has done his best to release as little information on that front as possible.

Here he is waxing poetic about the joys of fast food hamburgers. He really loves those things. One might even say to a dangerous degree. One might even say it’s a real problem.

Clinton released a new campaign ad featuring Machado shortly after the debate to further seize on the moment.
