Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe Donald Trump allegedly called ‘Ms. Piggy’ and ‘Ms. Housekeeping,’ reacted somewhat flippantly Tuesday night when asked by CNN’s Anderson Cooper whether she had once participated in a murder and threatened to kill a judge.
“There are reports that Trump surrogates tonight have been referencing and pointing to on CNN and elsewhere about an incident in 1998 in Venezuela, where you were accused of driving a getaway car from a murder scene. You were never charged with this,” Cooper said.
“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,” Cooper continued.
“He can say whatever he wants to say, I don’t care,” she responded. “You know, I have my past. Of course, everybody has a past. I’m not a saint girl. But that is not the point now.”
Machado said those reports were “speculation” by the press, because she was very famous in her own county. “He can use whatever he wants to use. The point is, that happened 20 years ago,” she said.
