The New York Times says the tape of Alicia Machado having sex is NOT a sex tape

In 2005, consenting adult Alicia Machado had sex when she knew that she was being recorded for a Spanish reality TV show called “La Granja VIP.” The recording of her having sex was later broadcast on that show.

Now, the New York Times claims that the tape of Machado having sex is not a sex tape:

Donald Trump Bashes Alicia Machado Again, Alleging a ‘Sex Tape’ (Without Evidence)

September 30, 2016

Donald J. Trump went on a morning Twitter tirade on Friday, denouncing the former Miss Universe winner he once shamed for gaining weight and directing the American public to seek out a sex tape that he said she participated in as evidence of her sordid past.

The attack, in a flurry of tweets on the topic posted from 5:14 to 5:30 a.m. Eastern time, was the latest effort by Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, to discredit the beauty queen, Alicia Machado, after Hillary Clinton used her as an example of his sexism during the debate on Monday night. Fact-checkers have found no evidence that Ms. Machado, who was featured in Playboy, appeared in a sex tape. Her critics may be referring to a risqué scene that she appeared in on a reality television show.

Mr. Trump maintained this week that Ms. Machado’s weight and attitude were problematic after she won the 1996 pageant and his campaign circulated information about her previous brushes with the law.

On Friday, Mr. Trump suggested that there was more to be revealed about Ms. Machado and offered the theory that Mrs. Clinton, his Democratic opponent, helped her attain American citizenship.

Donald Trump tweet: “Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?”

Mr. Trump had been modulating his tone in the weeks before the debate, but his uneven performance appears to have caused him to lash out. He has increasingly flirted with leveling more personal attacks on Mrs. Clinton’s history of marital problems and he has doubled-down on his charges that the news media is rigging the election.

While Mr. Trump had little to say when Mrs. Clinton brought up Ms. Machado on the debate stage, he said in his Friday tweets that she “duped” Mrs. Clinton. He called this a sign of bad judgment.

“Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an ‘angel’ without checking her past, which is terrible!” Mr. Trump wrote.

Ms. Machado, who told CNN this week that she is “not a saint girl,” was also accused in the late 1990s of abetting an attempted murder committed by her then-boyfriend, who shot a family member in Caracas, Venezuela.

She was said to have been seen driving a getaway car, but did not face charges.

Since he reshuffled his campaign’s leadership in August, Mr. Trump’s team has tried to instill a more disciplined approach that has been heavier on scripted speeches and policy. Twitter, however, has continued to be an outlet for Mr. Trump to vent without a filter, and rants such as the one unleashed on Friday undermine his efforts to appear presidential.

Backers of Mrs. Clinton seized on Twitter storm as more evidence that Mr. Trump is unfit to be president.

Correct the Record, a “super PAC” that supports the Democratic nominee, suggested that Mr. Trump was showing frustration about a recent batch of weak polls.

And John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman, advised that Mr. Trump might want to resist the urge to grab his phone when he wakes up “in the middle of the night.”

Mrs. Clinton responded later in the morning on Twitter by calling Mr. Trump “unhinged” and said his treatment of Ms. Machado was unwarranted.

    Of course, this makes perfect sense to me. Was it not the NYT that reported HilLIARy landed in a war zone under violent sniper attacks and hostile combat conditions when, in fact, she arrived at an airport that was absolutely peaceful and was greeted by men and women and children with diplomatic courtesy? Were they not aware that videos were being made of that arrival? Did they think the videos would never be shown after the big lie was told?

    Why does any reputable media organization take any political position on anything? Is it not their professional duty to simply report the news as honestly and fair as they can? Well, that used to be what the media did. News organizations are now the pillar of support for politicians in an effort to help them achieve election. No wonder the News Media is as disliked as the politicians. They are an integral part of the political system.

    Sleazebag Trump is now calling for the release of a sex tape featuring an underaged girl who was another Miss Universe. He’s one creepy, sick pervert that guy.

    “He has also previously been happy to describe Paris Hilton’s sex tape as having made her “hotter,” and called on Carrie Prejean, a Miss Universe contestant, to release hers, in which no one else appeared and she had sent when she was 17 years old to her boyfriend.”
