At a campaign stop in Grand Rapids, Michigan last night, Donald Trump, amongst a sea of boos, expressed some major discontent with Hillary Clinton. Along with berating her for her bathroom break at Saturday’s Democratic debate, Trump even went so far as to insult Clinton’s surprise come-from-behind loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 primary. How’d Don insult Hillary, you ask? By saying that Barack Obama “schlonged” her back in ’08.
Grand Rapids, Michigan (CNN)Donald Trump attacked Hillary Clinton in vulgar terms Monday night, saying that her bathroom break during the last Democratic debate was just too “disgusting” to talk about and then stating she “got schlonged” by Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential race.
“Even a race to Obama, she was gonna beat Obama. I don’t know who would be worse, I don’t know, how could it be worse? But she was going to beat — she was favored to win — and she got schlonged, she lost, I mean she lost,” Trump said, using a vulgar Yiddish word for a man’s penis.
Here’s the video.
My gut tells me that Trump meant “schlonged” as in “destroyed,” “whomped,” or “annihilated,” because I assume he doesn’t know any Yiddish. The funny thing about Donald Trump, though, is that there is an equally likely chance that this was a calculated move. Everybody knows that there is a zero percent chance Trump knows any Yiddish, so if he uses Yiddish slang for “penis” to imply that Barry O gave Hillary the hog back in ’08, he knows he can probably chalk it up to his well-documented ignorance and get away with it.
If you think about it, isn’t that the kind of leader this country needs? One who uses his shortcomings to his advantage? That’s American ingenuity right there.
Just kidding. Trump blows. I’m all in on Howard Dean in 2016. BYEAHHH!!!.
