Not Again: Trump Goes on Unhelpful, Late Night Tweet Storm About a Sex Tape

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was up late last night and apparently away from his campaign team. For weeks, Trump has surged in polls due to staying on message about important issues and by staying away from his cutting, abrasive personal attacks. That ended last night as Trump inserted another day of coverage around his alleged treatment of Venezuelan beauty queen and former Miss Universe Alicia Machado by accusing her of having a sex tape. 

After days of coverage, it's clear Machado was used by Clinton to bait Trump, which he's still hooked on. We also know Machado is from a politically well connected family in communist Venezuela, was accused of being an accomplice to murder and threatened to kill a judge. These things aren't what the media is focused on, but instead  on Trump calling her "an eating machine" and forcing her to workout in front of media cameras because she "gained a massive amount of weight." Does Machado have a sex tape? Who knows, but bringing one up is immature at best and well below the stature of any man who wants to be President of the United States.

Trump said during the debate Monday his best attribute is his temper. His latest tweetstorm proves once again that isn't true.
