RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites. Last night in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a campaign event, Trump, speaking about Hillary’s late return to the debate stage from a bathroom break Saturday night.
TRUMP: I’m watching the debate, and she disappeared. Where did she go? Where did she go? I thought she quit. I thought she gave up. Where did she go? Where did Hillary go? They had to start the debate without her, phase two. 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. Let’s not talk about it. We want to be very, very straight up, okay?
RUSH: I mean, folks, that’s — I mean, just from a — well, I don’t care, political or performance standpoint, I mean, if Trump were a leftist, they would call what just happened there genius, instinctive genius. This is the kind of thing you can’t be taught. There’s nobody that can teach you to go out and give a speech this way or to make an appearance. You either have that ability to empathize and connect with your audience or you don’t. (imitating Trump) “She quit, it’s disgusting, I don’t want to talk about it, it’s too disgusting, I don’t want to say it.”
What she doing back there?
“No, it’s too disgusting. Yeah, you know, it’s too disgusting. We can’t talk about it. No, no, no, I want to be very straight, let’s not talk about it, it’s too disgusting, we don’t want –” And all of a sudden Trump is saying what everybody in the audience, two things, wants to say themselves and is thinking, and then furthermore hoping that it’s actually true, that she was doing something disgusting and that somehow, someday, somewhere, it will be revealed. He wasn’t through, folks. He’s in hot water because of this.
TRUMP: Hillary, that’s not a president. She’s not taking us to the — Everything that’s been involved in Hillary has been lawsuits. You take a look. Even a race to Obama, she was gonna beat Obama. I don’t know who’d be worse. I don’t know. How does it get worse? But she was gonna beat, she was favored to win, and she got schlonged. She lost. I mean, she lost. But I watched her the other night. It was hard. It was really hard. ‘Cause there were a lot of other things on better, including reading books and reading financial papers, which I actually enjoy reading.
RUSH: Right, but I had to watch, I had to watch. She got schlonged out there. Well, the media has begun a linguistic investigation trying to understand what in the hell he’s talking about. Because in their world, you know what schlonged is in their world. What do you think it is, in their world? (interruption) Well, okay, maybe, you might you might say that. Schlong is a slang term for the male member. That ought protect you parents from your king kids, I mean, I’m not giving anything away. The schlong is a is a term. So if Hillary’s out there getting schlonged, let your mind wander.
Well, see, in the Drive-Bys’ world Trump has just said something despicable, it’s unspeakable, it’s profane what he suggested happened to Hillary. She got schlonged out there. I mean, there’s all kinds of things encompassed in it, disrespected, it’s the kind of thing that might offend the lesbian voters out there, any number of things about this. So they’re desperately trying to find out what Trump means, and they’ve concluded, for example, the Washington Post, that Trump misused a Jewish slang word, and he goofed it up because he’s too goyim. He was trying to use a Yiddish term and he goofed it up, and so he actually should be embarrassed by this.
The Yiddish term that they think Trump was trying to use, the definition of it is defeat. She got schlonged, she got beat, defeated. And of course the word is nothing close to that. And Trump would know it anyway. They know what it is. It’s such a great insult, they’re trying to deflect it, make it look like Trump misused and doesn’t know what he’s talking about instead of lauding what a great insult it was, because it was.
RUSH: Okay. I’m just gonna tell you, I’m just gonna say it flat-out what he meant. I’m just gonna tell you, I’m gonna tell you exactly what Trump meant. No more beating around the bush. It’s not complicated. Trump was saying Hillary got shafted by Obama. It’s no more complicated that. She got schlonged, she got shafted. Don’t wait for the media to explain it to you. They’re so far up the reservation on this. They’re looking for dirt where there isn’t any dirt. They’re looking for something to discredit. He just said she got shafted by Obama. It happens to be true. It’s more newsworthy than simply saying she got beat. She got schlonged. She got shafted. Makes perfect sense to those of us who know.
RUSH: No, I never did, I never imagined 27 years ago, 30 years, I never, ever imagined I’d be discussing schlonged on the radio, especially during Christmas week, but, I mean, it’s an indication of where our culture has gone.
