While speaking at a rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, when referring to how a Republican presidential candidate hadn't won the state in a long time, Trump said he couldn't say an expression the way it was said in the old days because of the "rules of #MeTwo."
"I'd use an expression, you know, there's an expression, but under the rules of #MeToo, I'm not allowed to use that expression anymore. Can't do it. It's 'the person who that away,' see in the old days it was a little different."

The real expression is, "the one that got away." It's a fishing expression about having a big fish on the line but not being able to reel it in; it's also used to describe a person, or anything desirable, that someone had a chance with but didn't end up with. So, yeah, the expression would totally work for a candidate almost winning a state in an election. But... What vulgar, inappropriate version is he thinking of that he blames the #MeToo movement for not being able to use?
"The _______ that got away."
