Machado responds to Trump’s sex tape tweet with provocative pose defiling the American flag

Donald Trump took a lot of flack for tweeting about Alicia Machado and her alleged sex tape on Friday.

The former Miss Universe has responded.

Machado was so outraged that Trump accused her of having a sex tape that she appears to have whipped her shirt off and defiled the American flag to complain about it on Instagram.

The former beauty queen, and new U.S. citizen, used the American flag as a shirt and wrote her complaints in English and Spanish.

Machado accused Trump of having a “hate campaign” while she and Hillary Clinton continue to wage a hate campaign against Trump and his supporters.

“The Republican candidate and his campaign are, once again launching attacks, insults and are attempting to revive slanders and false accusations about my life, in order to humiliate, intimidate, and unbalance me. These attacks are cheap lies with bad intentions. This, of course, is not the first time the candidate insists on discrediting someone or insists on demoralizing women, minorities, and people of certain religions through his hateful campaign. This is definitely one of his most frightful characteristics. Through his attacks, he’s attempting to distract from his campaign’s real problems and his inability to be the leader of this great country. When I was young, the now candidate, humiliated me, insulted me, disrespected me both publicly and privately in the cruelest way. The same way this happened to me, it’s clear that throughout the years, he’s continued his actions and behavior with other women. Therefore, I will continue to stand on my feet, sharing my story and my absolute support for Secretary Clinton, on behalf of all women — my sisters, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, women within the community. I want to thank all of my Latinas and those who have supported me and given me love and respect for my career, and as a human being. I became a United States citizen because my daughter was born here and because I wanted to exercise my rights, among them, I wanted to vote. I will continue standing firm in my lived experience as Miss Universe and even stronger with your support. I’ve been so pleased and honored by so many kind and heartfelt words. I’m focusing on my career and my work as a mother, and I will continue taking positive steps for the Latino community. I will continue being an activist for women’s rights and fighting for the respect we deserve. I appreciate all your love and thank you again for your support.” Many blessings, ALICIA MACHADO ???

Trump himself went back to Twitter to take a shot at Hillary Clinton, who wondered why he would be posting on the social media network at 3 a.m.

Excellent point.
