Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have somewhat been at each other’s throats lately—during the Democratic debate on Saturday, Hillary said that Trump was ISIS’s “best recruiter” and that they were using videos of Trump for recruitment (not currently true, but also not out of the realm of possibility).
Trump fired back today. During a campaign event in Michigan on Monday, he commented on Hillary’s previous race against Obama, proclaiming to a cheering crowd that “She was favored to win, and she got schlonged!”
“Schlong,” as a crass term for penis, is the most sexist way possible to frame Hillary’s defeat—she lost not due to campaign strategies or policies, but because she was a woman.
He did not stop there, needlessly bringing up her bathroom break during the debate: “I know where she went. It’s disgusting. I don’t want to talk about it. No, it's too disgusting. Don't say it, it's disgusting,” as the crowed laughed.
Apparently Hillary doesn’t even have the freedom to use the restroom without ridiculous criticism.
The only disgusting thing here is Trump’s misogynistic attitude, which is well-known. During a Republican debate in August, he attacked Fox host Megyn Kelly when she questioned his controversial remarks about women, nonchalantly stating that, “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her…wherever.”
He also slammed the appearance of fellow Republican candidate Carly Fiorina: “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"
If he’s talking about himself, he’s right. It really is impossible to imagine the face of an oompa loompa as our next president.
