Donald Trump Defends Derogatory Remark, Says It Was ‘Not Vulgar’

Donald Trump took to social media to defend his comment about Hillary Clinton, saying that it was “not vulgar.”

Donald Trump took to social media after receiving criticism over a remark he made about Hillary Clinton that is being widely perceived as sexually derogatory.

Trump has been the subject of criticism since Monday when he made a remark about the Secretary of State during a campaign stop in Michigan. “Even her race to Obama [in 2008], she was gonna beat Obama,” Trump said. “I don’t know who would 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.” Trump also commented about Clinton’s bathroom break during the Democratic debate on Saturday, saying that it was “disgusting.”

Responding to the criticism, Trump posted a tweet Tuesday, saying that his use of the word “schlonged” was “not vulgar.”

As reported by ABC News, Clinton shot back in response to Trump’s comments, saying, “We shouldn’t let anybody bully his way to the Presidency.” Clinton communications director Jen Palmieri tweeted, “We are not responding to Trump but everyone who understands the humiliation this degrading language inflicts on all women should. Trump, however, blamed mainstream media for giving “false meaning” to the word.
