Hillary Clinton’s campaign acknowledged the current hubbub around Trump’s use of the word “schlonged” to describe her defeat to Barack Obama in the 2008 election, by calling on “everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women” to respond to Trump, via tweet by campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri.

Monday night at a rally, Trump said Clinton “got schlonged” by Obama in 2008.

“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,” he said.

  3. Trump gives sexist pigs a bad name, doesn’t he.

  4. A beer to the first reporter who asks Trump in November, “How did it feel to get schlonged by Hillary Clinton?”

  5. This tasteless, racist clown Trump says anything including endorsing the killing of journalists and the media is reporting Hillary’s probably true statement about ISIL recruitment as a “lie”. So, Hillary makes an almost certainly true remark about Trump being an ISIL recruiter and the pesky left wing media makes her out to be a liar on equal footing as him. That damn leftie media!
