Hillary’s BAD Judgment: Exploits PORN STAR Surrogate

A Porn Star? A Clinton surrogate? Really? Really?
It is understandable why Donald Trump didn’t want to respond to Hillary Clinton’s “Miss Piggy” business the night of the debate, although, I confess, I wish he had. Chelsea Clinton was there and she and daughter Ivanka Trump are friends. He just didn’t want to go there on Hillary bullying Juanita Broaddrick over the latter’s quite graphic allegations of being raped by Bill Clinton, allegations that also include a charge that Hillary personally tried to bully Broaddrick.
Be that as it may, Hillary Clinton had no trouble doing the reverse to Trump — with Ivanka sitting there. But now the debate is over. So. Let’s discuss Hillary, the porn star and her judgment.
After mentioning in the debate that Donald Trump had referred to Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe, as “Miss Piggy” because she had gained weight in an alleged violation of her Miss Universe contract, Hillary took to Twitter to make Machado a victim.
Donald Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.
Her name is Alicia Machado. #DebateNight
So between the debate mention and the Hillary tweet, Ms. Machado is suddenly thrust into the spotlight as some sort of victim because she allegedly violated her contract by gaining weight. To the great joy of the Clinton campaign, which is using her in an online fundraising commercial, as seen here.
Conservative media dug in. And wow.
Here is the Daily Mail on Hillary’s surrogate.
Miss Universe ‘fat-shamed’ by Donald Trump was accused of threatening to kill a judge and being an accomplice to a MURDER bid in her native Venezuela 
The former Miss Universe at the center of a bitter exchange in Monday’s presidential debate was accused of aiding a would-be murderer and threatening to kill a judge, it has emerged.
Alicia Machado was named by Hillary Clinton as having been shamed for her weight in 1996 by Donald Trump, when she was Miss Universe and he bought the beauty contest, by being called ‘Miss Piggy’ when she gained weight.…
In January 1998, the Associated Press revealed that Machado had been accused in court documents in Cadacras of driving her boyfriend from the scene of a shooting.
She was ordered to testify in court, with her lawyer telling a local newspaper that she was in fact filming a soap opera at the time.
The murder, it was alleged, was the culmination of a bitter feud.
Machado’s boyfriend, Juan Rodriguez Reggeti, was accused of shooting his brother-in-law, Francisco Sbert Moukso — at the funeral of the dead man’s wife, Maria Rodriguez, who was the alleged murderer’s sister.
Sbert’s attorney alleged that Reggeti believed the dead man had driven his sister to suicide and took revenge, the Associated Press said.
Rodriguez was eight months pregnant when she jumped to her death off a fifth-floor balcony.
The attorney also alleged that witnesses saw Machado drive her boyfriend away from the scene of the crime, and that her boyfriend had snatched the dead woman’s 11-month-old son as well.
But her lawyer, Ricardo Koesling, was quoted in a local newspaper calling the claims ‘a huge stupidity’ and saying: ‘She wasn’t even present at the site of the incident.’
Machado was not indicted when the judge in the case said there was insufficient evidence that she was at the scene of the alleged crime.
Appearing on CNN with Anderson Cooper (full disclosure, I am a CNN commentator), Machado acknowledged in response to a question that yes, accusations were true that she was “accused of driving a getaway car from a murder scene.” Cooper went to correctly note “you were never charged with this. The judge in the case also said you threatened to kill him after he indicted your boyfriend for the attempted murder. I just want to give you a chance to address these reports that the Trump surrogates are talking about.”
Machado responded as follows:
“He can say whatever he wants to say. I don’t care. You know, I have my past. Of course. Everybody has a past. And I’m not a saint girl. But that is not the point now. That moment in Venezuela was wrong. Was another speculation about my life because I am a really famous person in my country because I’m an actress there. And in Mexico too. And he can use whatever he wants to use. The point is that happened twenty years ago.”
Now, since that CNN interview, of a sudden, the Clinton campaign finds their surrogate being ruthlessly revealed in conservative media this way (NOTE: PORNOGRAPHIC WARNING):
Oh Dear, Clinton’s Latest Campaign Surrogate is a: Murder Accomplice, Hard Core Porn Star and Drug Lord Concubine…
Among other things the story says that the father of her child is allegedly “Gerardo Alvarez-Vasquez, the Mexican drug lord, of the paramilitary drug-cartel Los Negros.”
As if that weren’t bad enough, follow the links provided and you will find the most graphic of pornographic videos featuring Machado. And I do mean graphic.
Now. Whatever else can be said here, Machado’s highly colorful past that she dismisses is considerably more to the point than a scolding boss (Trump) disturbed that an employee whose beauty is the core business of her contractual obligation was putting on pounds in violation of that contract. Why?
Because the fact that this woman is being made the center of the Clinton campaign’s latest Trump attack is decidedly yet another signal that when it comes to good judgment Hillary Clinton is genuinely clueless. Remember those leaked Colin Powell emails? In which, among other things, he says of Hillary that “She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields” and “everything HRC touches, she kind of screws up with hubris”?
Now we have Hillary Clinton — personally in a presidential debate and then on Twitter — shining the spotlight on a porn star! A porn star who freely admits to CNN that yes, indeed, the accusations circulating about her are true! With the videos surfacing of this Clinton spokesperson nothing if not more than graphic. And the Clinton response? They chose to put the porn star in a fundraising commercial! Which is to say, Hillary Clinton personally — say again personally — is taking a woman whose past is decidedly troubled and…yes indeed…exploiting her for every last drop of political capital she thinks she can get to slam Donald Trump.
So here it is. The classic debate mistake that professional debate watchers were looking for the other night. The 2016 equivalent of Michael Dukakis screwing up a question of a hypothetical rape of his wife, or a Gerald Ford insistence that Poland was not dominated by the Soviet Union… or to go all the way back to 1960, Richard Nixon’s decision to go without television makeup in his debate with JFK. It is George H.W. Bush looking impatiently at his watch or Al Gore sighing.
What we now realize we have seen is Hillary Clinton thrusting a porn star who is accused of having links to a drug lord into the dead center of her campaign.
Talk about bad judgment? Wow.
No wonder Colin Powell said Clinton regularly “screws up with hubris.”
You can bet Donald Trump will not be ignoring this one.
