Donald Trump had the mainstream media running for their urban dictionaries Monday when he speculated on where Hillary Clinton went during her mysterious disappearance from Saturday’s Democratic debate, then said she was “schlonged” by President Barack Obama in 2008.
“What happened to her? I’m watching the debate and she disappeared. Where did she go?” Trump said at a Michigan rally.
On Saturday, Clinton was mysteriously missing from her podium after a break in the debate, returning while ABC News moderator David Muir was in the middle of a question for Sen. Bernie Sanders. “Sorry,” she said.
Clinton’s campaign offered an explanation that the Democratic front-runner did not want to share the rest room with a Martin O’Malley staffer, causing the delay.
Trump weighed in on Hillary’s bathroom scandal.
“I know where she went, it’s disgusting,” Trump said to a cheering crowd. “I don’t want to talk about it. It’s too disgusting.”
Later, the billionaire lit into Clinton, pointing out her 2008 loss to Obama. “She was favored to win, and she got schlonged.”

Trump’s language caused mainstream media editors to feel faint. The word “schlong” is a vulgar term for a large penis, the straight-laced Washington Post explained.
The New York mogul’s legendary ability to force the media into uncomfortable situations was not lost on social media.
