The History Of Schlonged

Here is what Donald Trump said Monday in Grand Rapids Michigan that has the Liberal Media up in arms, "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."

Anybody with even one brain cell could tell that Trump was meaning she got beat and she got beat bad in that election.

When Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton got schlonged by Barack Obama in 2008, it wasn't the first time it was used the term was used in politics.  

In 2011 Neal Conan, host of NPR’s Talk of the Nation, said in said during the broadcast of the show that the 1984 Democratic ticket of Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro “went on to get schlonged at the polls.” 

Then in 2006 during a segment on Fox News, Dick Morris warned that President George W. Bush was “going to get schlonged” in the midterm elections.

Going even further back, the phrase made an appearance in New York City collegiate politics. The Daily Mail uncovered a 1967 article in the student newspaper of the City College of New York in which Ellen Turkish, a candidate on the losing slate for student council, said, “We got schlonged.” (As Ellen T. Comisso, she would go on to a distinguished career as a political scientist.)
