K…just had to comment on this…We all know Trump is a jackass…wait…we don’t all know that. Somehow we *don’t* all know that Trump is a jackass.
We *should* know that, because it’s so incredibly obvious…but anyway I’ll give you a quick example of one of his tricks, because it’s blatant, pathetic and should be called out.
Any one who has read my stuff for any amount of time knows what I think of “political correctness”. It’s stupid bullshit. If a moron is acting like a moron, they need to be called a moron. Dumbing down and sanitizing language and social interaction limits one of great equalizers in social societies, public shame.
I much prefer an open, combative dialogue, than a hushed, oppressed one. This is somewhere I diverge quite a bit from folks who have to follow these rules to get paid. I don’t get paid, I just have fun, so it makes things a bit more chaotic from an editing standpoint.
Regardless of all that, what Trump does is play the game both ways. He claims to hate the not of PC talk, but then hides behind it when called out. “Schlong” is a word for dick. Being “schlonged” is being “fucked”. Much like how he called out Megyn Kelly for being on the rag, and then claiming he was talking about a nosebleed, he retreats behind the PC lie when needed.
My guess is that he like many of his supporters, will finally just end up calling Hillary a “dumb bitch” and be done with it.
I do think you have to hit back, and do so harder, when folks get out of line like this, as Trump has. The “rules” of PC don’t allow that, which is why it was a dumb idea, for the most part.
It leaves you exposed to someone like Trump, or Cruz, who hide behind the very linguistic curtain they publicly claim to despise. Which can lead to *very* dark places, if they gain power using such techniques.
When I said that Hillary Clinton got schlonged by Obama, it meant got beaten badly. The media knows this. Often used word in politics!
