Fiery McCain: 'So Stupid' for Trump to Discuss Weight Gain by Miss Universe
At last night's debate, Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump for his disparaging comments about women.
She pointed to former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, who alleges that Trump called her "Miss Piggy."
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Trump surprisingly did not back away from that allegation.
"She was the winner and, you know, she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem," Trump said. "Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her. So Hillary went back into the years and she found this girl - this was many years ago - and found the girl and talked about her like she was Mother Teresa. And it wasn't quite that way. But that's OK. Hillary has to do what she has to do."
Hillary Clinton quickly pounced on his comment this morning.

Meghan McCain weighed in on Trump's comments on Outnumbered, saying that she is often asked about "fat-shaming" and "body image in the media" when she speaks at colleges.
"Anytime a woman sees a man saying, 'You've gain a bunch of weight,' 'She lost it,' 'She looked unattractive,' it affects all women everywhere," McCain said.
"I just don't understand when we're talking about ISIS with chemical weapons why you're talking about a former Miss Universe gaining weight! It is so stupid!"
Bret Baier agreed that Trump should be avoiding this subject when he's trying to win over women and undecided voters.
"I don't think this is a place he should go," he said.
