Clinton Camp Turns Trump Comment Into A Black Rape Fantasy
Hillary Clinton surrogate David Brock offered a mind-blowing assessment of Donald Trump’s use of the term “schlonged” to describe Hillary Clinton’s loss to then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, saying that the Republican’s presidential candidate’s comment was racist because it invoked the image of a “black rapist.”
“What we’re gonna see, and what we got a taste of last night, was the misogynistic attacks on Hillary Clinton, which also had a racial appeal, as well,” Brock, the founder of the pro-Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, told MSNBC’s Alex Wagner during an interview Tuesday night.
“The idea of a black rapist using the schlong to defeat Hillary, I mean, I think that’s what that really was about,” added Brock, who as a journalist in the 1990s was heavily critical of the Clintons.
Trump’s use of the term “schlonged” — which he uttered at a rally in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Monday — generated intense debate over what, exactly, he meant by it.
“Even a race to Obama, she was gonna beat Obama. I don’t know who would be worse, I don’t know, how could it be worse? But she was going to beat — she was favored to win — and she got schlonged, she lost, I mean she lost,” Trump said.
Many observers initially interpreted the verbiage as a reference to a penis. But the real estate billionaire shot back on Tuesday, claiming on Twitter that the media gave it “false meaning” and that it actually referred to a situation in which someone is “beaten badly.”
