Donald Trump responded incredulously on Monday night when Hillary Clinton brought up claims by former Miss Universe Alicia Machado that he had insulted her, calling her "Miss Piggy" when she gained some weight and "Miss Housekeeping" because she was Latina.

"Where did you find this? Where did you find this?" he spoke over Clinton.

The idea that Donald Trump might be disrespectful to a woman certainly is a shocking one. And it was equally so shocking to see Trump, less than 12 hours later, once again disrespecting Machado in an interview on Fox and Friends. He even brought it up unprompted, identifying it as the only moment that had truly gotten under his skin. He defended his actions towards Machado.

"She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem," Trump said.

What was Clinton thinking, saying this man has a problem respecting women? How did this foreign concept get implanted in her mind?
