She really is Miss Piggy

The media masturbation over Donald Trump calling a Miss Universe who gained weight "Miss Piggy" is a delight, because it shows how biased and prissy journalists are.


The epithet fit, not because she had gained weight, but because she was a diva.

Trump bought the Miss USA and Miss Universe shows in 1996 and let the staff run it. She was high maintenance. Trump told Bill O'Reilly last night:
She did not do well. She had a lot of difficulty, and, you know, they wanted to fire her. The company itself wanted to fire her. I saved her job.
This story by Jeanne Moos of CNN in 1997 verifies Trump's statement.

Now if her weight were the only issue, he would have called her a Little Piggy. But Miss Piggy was a royal pain who pushed her weight around people who offended her. There was this exchange from the second episode of "The Muppets" back in 1976:
Fozzie Bear: Hey, have you heard the one about this very fat pig?
Miss Piggy: [angrily] Have you heard this one about this very FLAT bear? Hiii-ya! [she karate-chops him] 
The problem was not her weight but her attitude. Oh, she had gained a bunch of weight. She says nineteen pounds, CNN in 1997 said nearly sixty pounds. This was a problem for a beauty pageant winner. If judging a beauty contest winner on her looks is misogyny, then we are all misogynists now.

In raising this issue, Hillary reminds grown-ups that Trump likes good-looking women and judges beauty contest contestants on their looks. Who does that make look small?

Many sites are bringing up her later troubles -- troubles the media ignore such as driving the getaway car from a murder, threatening the life of a judge, getting bounced from a reality show after making a sex tape with another contestant, and giving birth to a Mexican drug lord's daughter. None of that will change a vote because the people who decide their vote based on the debates tune out all that background noise.

However, her post-Miss Universe life fits the template of a diva.

So, Hillary's pants suit is in a bunch over calling a fat beauty contest winner Miss Piggy? That is one way to remind people of Hilary's extreme Hiii-ya! Karate Chop feminism.

By all means, play that up, media.

UPDATE: Will Rahn of CBS takes on the media silence on Miss Piggy's career.

    It sounds like this gal meets all the requirements to be a media heroine.

    1. Those problems were only manifestations of her psychological damage caused by DJT. (Yes, I'm being sarcastic.)

    2. A perfect Dimocrat like Ted Floater Kennedy and BJ Clinton.

  2. Funny how going back and checking what the record says usually vindicates Trump.

  3. Extending the Muppet Show theme, I nominate Ted Cruz as the Gonzo the Great equivalent.

    I'm not sure who Our Don would identify with, if any, but it might be interesting to know.

  4. This is all background noise, which serves as one more distraction the Dems are using to obscure the revelation that Barack Obama knew from day 1 Hillary was using an unauthorized private email server, contradicting his now obvious lie that he did not find out until he read it in the newspaper.

  5. Five days after the debate and Trump is tweeting that people should go online and watch Machado's sex tape. And his next debate strategy: Attack Bill Clinton's infidelity. That's real presidential temperament right there. What a buffoon and you suckers are playing right into it.

    1. Trump calls a fat diva Miss Piggy
      Hillary votes for two wars, then gives back what we won in one of them, starts another which leads to a Libyan refugee invasion of Italy, resurrects the 60-year banned Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, rents the State Department to the Saudis, hits reset with Russia, helps give nukes to Iran -- and I'm the sucker?

    2. Yes you are the sucker. Mike Pence voted for the same wars that Hillary did. ISIS began in the early 2000s; Trump supported ouster of Ghadafi; I don't recall Clinton (or Reagan) ever drooling over a Russian leader; and your nukes-to-Iran thought is backwards and you know it.
      So, have you followed your god's advice and watched the Miss Piggy sex tape? When you going to start posting bikini photos again of Trump's wife and daughter?

  6. The only suckers are voting for PIAPS, aka ILLary.
