President Donald Trump was thoroughly maligned, mocked and reprimanded by the media after he waded into Hillary Clinton's bathroom habits and remarked that she was "schlonged" by Barack Obama in the 2008 election. The meanies in the media (the meandia?) said he was "running out of words," that he went "full schmuck," and that he is "unconstrained by the bounds of reality that restrict the rest of us." This vulgarity pile-on apparently hurt Trump's feelings.

He even scrapped together a single example of the word being used one time in 1984.

Because one example = often used in Trumpland.

I think this is a reference to Hillary going to the bathroom again. If America needs a president who can hold it in, we would have elected Bloomberg by now.

Although she initially refused to comment on Trump's inane blather, Clinton rightfully unleashed her rage at a campaign event yesterday, noting this was "not the first time he's demonstrated a penchant for sexism." Here's what she said to the Des Moines Register:

“I really deplore the tone of his campaign, the inflammatory rhetoric that he is using to divide people, and his going after groups of people with hateful, incendiary rhetoric,” the Democratic front-runner for president said in an interview with The Des Moines Register after a campaign event in Fairfield. “Nothing really surprises me anymore. I don’t know that he has any boundaries at all. His bigotry, his bluster, his bullying have become his campaign. And he has to keep sort of upping the stakes and going even further.”

Clinton declined to say if she believed Trump was targeting her as a woman when he used such terms Monday. “I don’t respond to him personally, because he thrives on that kind of exchange,” she said. “I think he has to answer for what he says, and I assume that others will make the larger point about his language. It’s not the first time he’s demonstrated a penchant for sexism. Again, I’m not sure anybody’s surprised that he keeps pushing the envelope.”

Clinton acknowledged that she routinely criticizes Trump during her campaign appearances, but she said her words about him have a different tone. “I do it on the basis of an assessment of what he says and how he’s presenting himself as a candidate, which I think is exactly what the discourse should be in a campaign.”

Trump responded, naturally, with a vague threat on Twitter:

Anyway, none of this matters to Trump's base, who continue to support him regardless of what he says or does or believes, because Trump's base are at best a bunch of misguided, frustrated idiots who are okay with supporting an openly hostile and racist candidate who looks like a giant cheeto and has no political experience or acumen.
