Beauty is in the eye of the beholder — not the President.
President Trump has long made it a habit to disparage the appearances of women who have questioned and called him out — among his latest victims, porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had a brief affair with Trump during a celebrity golf tournament in 2006.
A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump, which stemmed from a tweet in which the President slammed claims that a man threatened the X-rated actress against revealing the tryst as a “total con job.”
“Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the great state of Texas,” Trump taunted in a tweet in wake of the decision. “She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!”
Here’s a look back at some of Trump’s similar attacks:
In the months after she was crowned the winner of Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant in 1996, Machado said the President subjected her to inappropriate behavior and verbal harassment.
He accused her of gaining too much weight in wake of the competition and referred to her as “Miss Housekeeping” — a seemingly racist dig at her Venezuela roots — and “Miss Piggy.” Machado came forward with his attacks amid his bid for office in 2016 and became a routine talking point for his Democratic rival at the time, Hillary Clinton.
Machado in August 2016 took to Instagram to reveal she’d become a U.S. citizen so that she could vote against Trump in the election, blasting him for the way he’d treated her in the past. In September the same year, the President during an appearance on Fox & Friends said Machado’s weight was a “real problem” after she nabbed the crown.
