After 24 hours of criticism for his sexist and misogynistic attack on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump took to Twitter to defend himself – some say falsely.

“Even her race to Obama," the GOP frontrunner said, speaking of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential primary race against Barack Obama.
"She was going to beat Obama. I don’t know who’d be worse. I don’t know. How does it get worse? She was favored to win and she got schlonged. She lost. She lost," Trump told the audience.
Immediately, the media reported the news.
The Washington Post reported that Trump turned "a vulgar noun for a large penis into a verb."
“Schlong” is a well-known reference to a man’s genitals. There are no alternative definitions for the word, according to Merriam-Webster.
In typical fashion, Trump did not apologize, suggest he might have spoken inappropriately, or might have used a word in an unintended manner.
Instead, minutes ago, after waiting 24 hours for the news to give him attention, Donald Trump took to Twitter to play the victim in his own sexist and misogynistic attack on Clinton.
He wrote that the mainstream media got the entire story wrong, and that out of the thousands of news outlets across America, not a single one of them knew the actual definition of the word "schlonged."
Once again, #MSM is dishonest. "Schlonged" is not vulgar. When I said Hillary got "schlonged" that meant beaten badly.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2015
Trump also claimed that a journalist, now at NPR, had used the word in the same manner he did, decades ago:
But here's what the arbiter of slang, Urban Dictionary, offers when searching for "schlonged":
to get very drunk
to hit someone or thing
to bismark a someone
"To be cockslapped by a man with a large penis."
