Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail.

The world woke up on Friday morning to yet another Twitter tirade by Donald Trump, who suggested that Hillary Clinton's campaign has illicitly fast-tracked former Miss Universe Alicia Machado's citizenship status in a series of tweets. In doing so, he also encouraged his 11 million Twitter followers to "check out sex tape and past" of Machado.

Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an "angel" without checking her past, which is terrible!
Using Alicia M in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con.

Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?

Clinton responded by posting a handful of tweets of her own a few hours later. In them, she called her opponent's tweetstorm "unhinged, even for Trump."

Clinton also noted that Trump has a long history with verbally abusing women, highlighted by Trump doubling down on his comments disparaging Rosie O'Donnell during Monday's presidential debate and his insistence during post-debate interviews that Machado's weight gain was unacceptable. Additionally, Clinton pointed out that Trump made comments about Kim Kardashian's weight while pregnant with North in 2013.
