Yes Donald Trump, the word schlonged is vulgar
Mr. Trump got into trouble for describing Hillary Clinton’s defeat by Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary election by saying that Hillary got schlonged. Then he whined on twitter that:
“Once again, #MSM is dishonest. ‘Schlonged’ is not vulgar. When I said Hillary got ‘schlonged’ that meant beaten badly.”
It’s really almost an F-bomb. The Yiddish word schlong means penis and so the obscure verb form means intercourse. It would be even more vulgar if he had specified other than the usual form of sex (e.g. buggered).
The Washington Post, Esquire, and BBC News all took him to task for using that word. Saying Hillary got torpedoed would have been better (and less blatantly sexual).
Trump needs to learn some better words for won and lost. A little more time listening to sports talk radio or TV would probably help. Sportscasters all seem to have been taught out of a book like the mythical one shown above.
