Sexist pig Donald Trump took his bashing of Hillary Clinton to new heights (or lows, rather), even going as far as to introduce a brand new word to the conversation: Schlonged. As in, Clinton “got schlonged” by Obama in 2008.
Now anyone with Jewish grandparents can tell you that “schlong” is Yiddish slang for penis, but I can’t say I’ve ever used it heard as a verb (it can, however, be found on Urban Dictionary but so can just about everything else). So was Trump intentionally introducing a brand new, horrifically sexist, term into this presidential race or was it simply a slip of his fat, heavy tongue?
Regardless of Trump’s intention, “schlonged” is trending online, even prompting “linguistic investigations.” Clinton’s camp refuses to respond to Trump’s comments (including the one in which he calls her bathroom break “disgusting”) but does offer this:
We are not responding to Trump but everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women should. #imwithher

So this is our response: Donald Trump can eat a bag of schlongs.
