The guy from NPR apologizes for saying “schlonged”
Neither Trump nor I are Yiddish-speaking Jews, though we both grew up and lived in New York City, where we learned and delighted in colorful language. As my arguments with Goodwin suggest, I like to push the envelope in what is sometimes referred to as polite company. Like on the radio.
But since my previous use of this word has apparently provided Donald Trump a veneer of respectability for yet another in a disturbingly long series of nasty, hateful diatribes, I apologize.
Translation: “Everything I say is only about pushing the envelope, because I’m a good guy, a liberal, but Trump is an evil racist.”
