Toward the end of the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, debate moderator Lester Holt asked Trump what he meant when he said Clinton “doesn’t have a presidential look.”
While Trump (predictably) tried to evade the question, Clinton delivered one of the most powerful moments of the night, reminding America how Trump has described women in the past.
“This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs, and dogs,” she said. “And someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers…”

In response, Trump started: “I never said…” but Clinton continued.
“Who have said women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good of a job as men. And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest—he loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them—and he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name. Her name—”
“Where did you find this?” Trump repeated several times, interrupting Clinton.
“…is Alicia Machado. And she has become a US citizen. And you can bet she’s going to vote this November.”
