Republican frontrunner Donald Trump used a campaign stop in Michigan on Monday to make astonishingly sexist attacks against Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
At one point, Trump told the Grand Rapids crowd that Clinton got “schlonged” by President Obama during their 2008 Democratic primary race.
“Even her race to Obama. She was going to beat Obama. I don’t know who’d be worse. I don’t know. How does it get worse? She was favored to win and she got schlonged. She lost. She lost,” Trump said.
“Schlong” is a well-known reference to a man’s genitals. There are no alternative definitions for the word, according to Merriam-Webster.
Trump also used his speech to attack Clinton for using the bathroom.
Discussing her brief disappearance during Saturday’s Democratic debate while she was using the lavatory, Trump told the crowd, “Where did Hillary go? They had to start the debate without her. Phase two. Why? I know where she went. It’s disgusting. I don’t want to talk about it. It’s too disgusting. Don’t say it, it’s disgusting. We want to be very, very straight up.”
Trump’s sexist attacks have been an unfortunate hallmark of his presidential campaign. In August, he attacked Fox News host Megyn Kelly after tough questioning in a presidential debate by saying she had “blood coming out of her whatever.” Kelly had asked Trump about his history of describing women as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.” Trump has also criticized presidential rival Carly Fiorina, the only Republican woman in the race, by saying “Look at that face!” and wondering aloud, “Would anyone vote for that?”
