Jeb Responds To Trump’s ‘Schlonged’ Comment — By Blaming Hillary’s ‘Victimology Status’

Share

Jeb Bush is now castigating Donald Trump’s obscene attack against Hillary Clinton — sort of — because, Jeb says, the real crime The Donald has committed is he’s made it easier for Hillary to keep playing the victim.

At a rally Monday night in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Trump said that Clinton got “schlonged” by Barack Obama in 2008. (Schlong is a vulgar Yiddish slang term for a penis.)

“She’s great at being the victim. You know, this will enhance her victimology status. This is what she loves doing,” Bush told reporters Tuesday in New Hampshire, video of which has been posted on Twitter by ABC News. “Trump is not gonna be president, because he says these things — it turns people off. I mean for crying out loud, we’re two days before Christmas — lighten up, man.”

“You said ‘playing the victim,'” a reporter asked. “Is saying someone was ‘schlonged’ not victimizing language? ‘

“I’m saying she will use this in a way that won’t be helpful to our cause,” Jeb answered. “I’m concurring with the question.”

    “Schlonged” is an ole Yiddish expression meaning at worse. , one has been screwed by a more shrewd character, in this cas the Democratic Party shafted Hillary , because the DNC saw a double whammy in Barak Obama , a Black – almost , and a woman wrapped up in one . What a winner!

        Yes you are correct about dick, it also has some softer meanings. Trump did not say Hillary got dicked, that would be difficult at best …says Bill , personal notes. Obama is the female in the family . Compared with Chris Matthews and David Brooks who have said respectively : they get a tingle running up their legs or they like the crease of their pants…. I do not have such reactions, I cringe at prissiness in a man. I like the challenges of a woman, you have everything , intelligently rolled, roled into one beautifully made creature, ask Bill Clinton……

      Except, the DNC didn’t choose Barack Obama, the voters in the Democratic primary did. Your insulting, and inaccurate characterization of the guy who handedly bested your candidate in the general election, notwithstanding, but expected. And in that comment lies your political problem in a nutshell. One has never, nor will Mr. Trump, insult, berate, and mock his way to the highest office of the most powerful country in the World. It’s simply too important a position to be trusted to such an immature, and non-serious individual as Mr. Trump is showing himself to be, But, by all means, do what is most important to you, and have your fun.

        the candidate was too much a politically correct and mis handled to be a winner. If he were more extemporaneous he would have been ok, maybe. Not even the stalemate in a weak Congress prevented Obama from turning the country into a divisive country and fomenting chaos at home and in the Middle East. We can now get back to the values that were created with the founding principles , and expunging all laws after 1831.

          Do you know what you’re talking about? Because, it doesn’t sound like it. It sounds like you’re suffering from the same misconception that is ailing, and literally tearing apart the GOP right now. Namely that the establishment factions running the
          Party, setting the agenda, choosing the topics of conversation,
          controlling the money, and thus the nominee, have in the past, not been conservative enough. (Read: Politically Correct.) And therefore, the way this misguided theory goes, since the vast majority of the electorate agree with us, the “real conservatives,”the result of the Republicans, or even an independent operation’s nominating the very most conservative in the field, will be political victory.
          So, you Liberal Commies, can STFU! You, and the illegals, and welfare parasites on food stamps, don’t run this Country, we do! And I’m telling you, all the empirical evidence gathered has not so far supported that assertion. Neither does the evidence support the accusation that Barack Obama has enabled diversification anymore than any other President since Washington. Yes, a stronger Congress could have stepped in and reformed a badly broken immigration system. But Conservatives have been complaining about some group or the other mucking up their homogeneous culture since the Puritans were complaining about it 200 years ago. And so it goes. But blaming the Nation’s first President of any color other than White, of turning the Nation into a, “divisive Country?” One question. Who’s griping, and being divisive? Don’t want a divisive country? Then, quit being divisive. After all, the Latinos aren’t complaining about the Rednecks. The Gays aren’t complaining, or legislating against the religious. And the Liberals aren’t the Party suggesting a religious test be given before entry is granted into the country that’s supposed to respect all religions.

            This is not a xenophobic problem for right wingers; border intrusions are possible entries to terrorists also as is the temporary pausing of Moslems/ Syrians slipping into this country, as we have seen. The congress does not have to make any new immigration laws, but only to enforce existing regulations on extended stay visas and the like. We have been a gracious , open society, that have been taken advantage of, repayment for this has been taking , rather than adding to this country.

            Divisiveness, there has not been such racial problems since Martin Luther King, there was much progress made from his leadership. The left political leaders. appear to cause focus on differences , rather than encourage the similarities amongst us. It is a familiar , cleaver technique politically, for the power politicos. This has to be stopped, we are much better than those who foment this method.

            Denial of the obvious xenophobia within the Right Wing, that is in large part fueling Trump’s rise to what will be a failed bid for the Presidency, is not an answer. Nor is inventing imaginary boogeymen like terrorist from Syria, or Ebola, or hoards of rapists, and drug dealers, and falsely associating them with the immigration problem on our Southern border, going to help.
            In fact, it will destroy what chance the Conservative Party has to remain a viable political entity going forward if some very stubborn facts are not acknowledged, and quickly.
            As for divisiveness, I remember well what the White Southerners were saying of King’s Civil Rights campaign. He was labeled a troublemaker, and a Communist by our own FBI Director. It was widely asserted within my White household at the time, that there wasn’t, no trouble with the Negroes, until King and his bunch came in, and I quote verbatim,”stirred ’em all up.” It’s the same thing we hear today coming out of much the same crowd that supported segregation, and a segregationists governor from Al. named George Wallace. Oh the divisiveness of these do gooders. We wish they’d quit dividing us Black, and White, rich and poor, and let us live in peace like we used to!

    Jeb illustrates this depraved state by blaming the target of a childish vulgar outburst(one of numerous) from his Excellency for having the “Wrath of Trump” directed at her.

    The phenomenon called “TRUMP” is a necessary evil and distraction that acts as an excellent mirror that reflects most accurately the moribund condition of a partisan-political system when operating in an ever-changing social/spiritual environment.

    The antics of Trump, Jeb, et al, provide for the more discerning a view of a system in its totality that is hopelessly decayed, archaic, and effete. Therefore, a new method of governance in America(and indeed for the world) is needed that transcends what the Left and the Right represent today. Since that won’t occur overnight, we must choose the lesser of the evils that beset us during the transition, and by now it should be clear what sort of choice that might be.
    (HINT: Any ideology that concentrates more on unifying rather than dividing, and takes us further from perpetuating the axiology of constructing values based on social hierarchy(e.g., class/race/caste/apartheid/religion/meritocracy) is what can help us climb out of the “pit of error” we find ourselves in).

      Aaron, something tells me that the “Trump phenomenon” is an indication that there is widespread unrest within the ranks of “we the people.” Many cannot put their finger on it, duped as they are with the false narrative and all the disingenuous, divisive, and downright deceptive rhetoric that serves to anger, divide, frighten, and mobilize them.

      35 years of favor for “the job creators” (how disingenuous, unless, of course you’re talking about jobs in China, Taiwan, Vietnam, etc.) from tax policy that benefits the wealthy and “multinational” corporations (write-offs, credits, subsidies, long term capital gains, tax deferred annuities, carried interest, etc.) to FTAs, to Union busting in “Right to Work (for less) States, to Bank deregulation (GLB), to FEC’s Citizens United ruling, etc., has witnessed $$$MONEYED INTEREST$$$ dominating our legislature, consolidating all of the USA’s unfathomable wealth unto themselves, leaving “we the people” to blame ourselves (blame the victim) for the fact that they’re working harder with longer hours, perhaps including a part time jobs on the side for less pay/benefits to make ends meet as they sink deeper and deeper in debt. You see it everywhere.

      The swell of often misdirected discontent usually always leads to a revolt against the “establishment.” The propaganda machine of moneyed interest has been very effective at dividing to conquer, but once the populous does the arduous work of researching what the hell has happened to them, there will be a backlash against moneyed interest like we haven’t seen in many of our lifetimes. I only hope is isn’t too late to turn it around…

        Your first paragraph alone points to a genesis of the festering sore that afflicts America. It is the deconstruction of what America as a whole suffers from that will give us better insight into how to cure ourselves.

        Revolts, various statistics about the morbid state of our society, the lust to acquire and get power(even to the extent of begging for contributions and receiving “secret” funding to run for office) are just outward signs of a deep-seated problem that defies political, medical, or any expedient solution.

        For example, addressing the outward symptoms of a person who is ill due to a parasitic infection provides temporary relief. Only the eradication of the parasite brings closure to the infection.

        Likewise, the “parasites” of greed, bigotry, hate, religious intolerance/religious fanaticism show show symptoms like we see in the world and in American politics. But these parasites don’t respond to rebukes nor can they be removed by laws, man-made philosophical principles, psychology/psychiatry, and the like.

        These sorts of “parasites” have been best dealt with by the “medicine” only found in Religion. But when a Religion has reached its “Omega”(end-point), coupled with the adaptation of the parasite to be more resistant, a renewal of Religion is needed.(This is why the efforts of the status quo Religious Systems are unable to effectively counter bigotry as displayed by the likes of candidates and other negative forces, nor can Islam deal with the advent of believers who’ve become literalist and intransigent in the practice and interpretation they make when reading the Qur’an.

        Into this vacuum has stepped one known as Baha’u’llah, and since His ascension to the next world, an institution known as the Universal House of Justice whose seat is on Mt. Carmel in Israel serves as the conduit for the His influence. Nor is He the “Last”—this is part of what is called “Progressive Revelation”.

        An earlier post of mine included a response from this Institution that addressed the “distortion of human reality”—a condition that Trump and other extremists are currently the most visible and vocal signs of the dysfunction that afflicts us all, to some degree or another.

        Excuse this overly long response, but let me conclude this with the following from one of Baha’u’llah’s admonitions(from “The Hidden Words”):

        “O MY SERVANT! Free thyself from the fetters of this world, and loose thy soul from the prison of self. Seize thy chance, for it will come to thee no more.”

        When I read and reflect on this I see both a description of an illness we have, and a warning to take action as soon as possible.

          My intuition may be working overtime, but I loathe to think of the profound loss and suffering that will need to be visited, perhaps not on our aging generation, but surely on our children’s generation, that will be necessary for us to turn our efforts toward a unification that considers the good of the whole, not just the powerful and wealthy on a social front.

          You’re allusions to a spiritual awakening or earthly cataclysm that will lead up to this unification is described through hints and signs in the Book of Revelations. Troubling times indeed.

    I was drawn back to this item after thinking about the many verbal gaffes of the Bushes, including wrong usage of words, malapropisms, and/or ill-timed usage of words.
    Jeb once claimed(or alluded to) his disdain for big words.

    Well, “victimology” is quite a mouthful for those associated with an extremist ideology. In particular, Jeb’s use of the word, coupled with Trump’s casual and studied vulgarity, is an indication of a callous and cold-hearted personality that seeks first to blame the victim, and in the same breath imply, in a convoluted way, that an obscenity directed at a woman is OK because “she asked for it”.

    Is that what the ideals of Christianity boil down to in this era??

    Clearly, a “change of scenerey”, and an infusion of a “revitalizing force” is needed— a replacement of the “Old Wine” with a “New Wine” is the metaphor that Jesus uses in the New Testament.
