"She was the worst we ever had, the worst, the absolute worst, she was impossible," Donald Trump told Fox News the morning after his debate with Hillary Clinton, defending his treatment of Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe whom he called "Miss Piggy," when she gained weight after the pageant, and "Miss Housekeeping," in apparent reference to her heritage. Watching the debate, the artist Barry Blitt recognized a significant moment in the Presidential campaign. Of all Trump's dangerous beliefs, Blitt said, his misogyny "might just be his Achilles' heel."
