Hillary Clinton attacks Trump over beauty queen tweets at Coral Springs rally

Clinton to attend fundraiser in Miami Beach after rally

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump's flurry of late-night tweets targeting former Miss Universe Alicia Machado was "unhinged, even for him."

At a rally Friday in Coral Springs, Clinton questioned what kind of person gets up at 3 a.m. to send angry tweets.

Trump tweeted in the early-morning hours that Machado was "disgusting" and "a con" and encouraged Americans to check out her supposed sex tape.

Trump has been targeting Machado since Clinton, at Monday's debate, cited derogatory comments Trump had made about Machado after she gained weight. Clinton cited it as an example of his disrespect toward women.

"Did any of you see the debate the other night?" Clinton asked the crowd of supporters. "Well, I think that it was pretty clear that there are two very different choices for our country based on two very different visions of the kind of America that we want to have. You know, my view is that we are already great and if we work together we will become even greater in the years ahead."

Clinton said Trump's "latest Twitter meltdown is unhinged, even for him." She said it underscores that Trump is "temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief."

Clinton is attending a fundraiser in Miami Beach after the rally.
