As you, person with an Internet connection, have already heard by now, Donald Trump found yet another way to offend this week when he turned a vulgar term for a man’s penis into a verb while describing Hillary Clinton’s loss to Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary. “She was favored to win and she got schlonged, she lost,” Trump told a crowd of supporters.
The GOP front-runner, though, is now claiming that the word schlonged doesn’t mean what we all think it means.
When I said that Hillary Clinton got schlonged by Obama, it meant got beaten badly. The media knows this. Often used word in politics!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2015
It is a shame that the biased media is able to so incorrectly define a word for the public when they know that the definition is wrong. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2015
If you were wondering, here’s the first definition for schlong in the Merriam-Webster dictionary: “Penis.” And the first definition on Dictionary.com: “The penis.” And in the Cambridge Dictionaries: “a penis.” And in the Oxford Dictionaires: “A man’s penis.” None of the four offer a second definition.
