The collective left continues to feign outrage over Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump using the term “schlonged” to describe Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Democratic primary loss to Barack Obama.
Turns out, some of President Obama’s advisers at the time may have taken a few “liberties” of their own with Hillary … as in groping and slobbering on a life-size cardboard cutout of her.
The man on the left, Jon Favreau, is a former Obama speechwriter who would later apologized to Clinton, according to the New York Daily News. And the incident didn’t prevent Favreau from going on to serve as the president’s director of White House speech-writing.
Trump took to social media to explain that he used “schlonged” as a means to say Clinton “got beaten badly.” Either way, it seems to pale in comparison to the photo above.
By the way, guess who described Trump’s choice of words as “gross”… that’s right, Mr. Touchy Feely himself:
Good, he's gross https://t.co/4Zytc9UyoP

And while the pro-Hillary media conveniently looks the other way, social media users were not as quick to curl up in her lap.
