Clinton Surrogate Ed Rendell Predicts Landside Of “Ugly Women” Voting For Clinton

Ed_RendellTrump supporters have repeatedly objected to what is viewed as a bias in the media in favor of Hillary Clinton, including the failure to recognize that Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have previously said things that are now denounced as hateful or extremist. Now a Clinton surrogate has sounded positively Trump like in his criticism of Trump. Ed Rendell, the former Pennsylvania governor and Philadelphia mayor had a curious way of analyzing the impact of statements by Trump about women on voters. I will say it again: this election cannot get more bizarre.


Rendell is quoted in the Washington Post as saying “Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure. For every one he’ll lose 1½ , two Republican women. Trump’s comments like ‘You can’t be a 10 if you’re flat-chested,’ that’ll come back to haunt him. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally.”

Rendell’s rallying of “ugly women” did not produce a rebuke, but it would seem an odd pitch for crossover votes. He is right “people take that stuff personally” and that is precisely why the campaign may want to tweak this particular spin.

  1. Actually several Dems in PA spoke out against it right away and Rendell apologized quickly, giving an actual apology and not one of those “I’m sorry IF you were offended” apologies.

    Meanwhile, Trump almost never apologizes for the ridiculous things he says, including all the incredibly creepy things he says about how attracted he is to his daughter.

    I do applaud that Trumps organization has promoted women, but seeing how he treated women on his show and how he has treated them during his campaign, I suspect he had very little to do with the actual day to day within his various organizations.

    What a year. What a country

  2. Karen got it right. I’ll vote libertarian or write in “none of the above”.

  3. Karen’s post makes sense to me, too. No matter which one of these two power-mongered egomaniacs is elected, perhaps the best that can be said is that January 2017 will be the start of four years of complete disillusionment in the good ol’ US. With any luck, we’ll all learn from the experience.

  4. We are living in some very interesting times. Donald Trump is blowing up the political world by running an unfiltered campaign and becomes the presumptive Republican nominee for President. Hillary Clinton on the other hand runs a completely filtered campaign and will be the presumptive Democratic nominee. Trump goes against PC and is rewarded while Clinton is rewarded for being PC. If Trump had to carry Clinton’s political baggage his campaign would have never got off the ground. Clinton could shoot Sanders in the middle of Times Square and not only would her campaign survive, the media would report this as a suicide.

    In an era of self-identification, this nation is INSANE!

  5. “There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally.” Especially in Utah.

  6. I cannot say that I have seen a race where the opponents have shot themselves in the foot more often.

  7. I am not sure if ‘ugly women’ is a polling category. And is this a judgment call by the pollster or do you self-identify?

  8. The Clinton story plot deepens and gets better. Keep an eye on Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.

    A former aide to Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state testified behind closed doors for two hours Wednesday in the first in a series of depositions that are likely to raise more questions about Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server.

    The judge, Emmet G. Sullivan of United States District Court in Washington, has been sharply critical of the State Department’s handling of the email affair over the last year.

    “It just boggles the mind that the State Department allowed this circumstance to arise in the first place,” said Judge Sullivan, who was appointed to the Federal District Court in 1994 by President Clinton.
    The judge called the email episode “very, very, very troubling.”

  9. Why did his rallying cry for ugly women not produce a rebuke?

    Because there is one heck of a double standard! We all know it’s perfectly fine to say racist taunts, make up hate crimes, attack young women peacefully holding a sign and tell them to shut up, threaten journalists covering a public protest, pretend you are a minority in order to benefit from Affirmative Action, mock women’s appearance and make other sexist comments as long as you are a Liberal. That’s the key Get Out of Trouble card, like an Amex Centurion card, accepted without question. Life imitates The Onion.

    I’ve been quite vocal in my criticism of Trump. However, we inexplicably have two candidates who have each called women bimbos (bimbo eruptions), and the Clinton strategist James Carville with his infamous “drag a $100 through a trailer park and you’ll never know what you’ll find.”

    Trump is a contradiction. On one hand, women broke the glass ceiling in his companies and attained high level positions at a time when it was vanishingly rare. On the other hand, he can’t seem to help himself with sexist rants when someone pisses him off. He seems blissfully unaware that a line even exists as to what you should say in public vs the privacy of your guy friends. Amazingly, he seemed to lack any introspection when he objected so vigorously to the remark about the size of his hands. You would think, being an intelligent man, he would put 2 and 2 together and improve his behavior. The Golden Rule and all that.

    I haven’t heard about Trump assaulting anyone or being sued for sexual harassment, although he is unashamedly a complete pig when he’s mad. Hillary Clinton is on record for attacking women who rightly accused her husband of sexual harassment. There is also a troublingly long list of women who accused him of rape, and her behavior towards those women is relevant.

    This has got to be the oddest election we’ve experienced in a while. I suppose it will come down to whom women view as more of a turn off. At this point, I’m a bit more disgusted that Hillary Clinton attacked the character of the victims of sexual harassment (and allegedly rape), but I’m not thrilled with anyone who keeps harping on women’s beauty and weight.

    You know, doomsday prepping is beginning to look like a perfectly rational way to have family fun. Remember that Brandon Fraser movie where he spent 35 years in an underground bunker? As long as I can have Netflix, and maybe a better internet connection, maybe it just might work for 4 years… 🙂

  10. Clinton supporters seem to feel that they can say or do anything because they are “her” supporters and they have said some pretty outrageous things. This isn’t surprising because Hillary has done and said some outrageous things for which she has gotten a pass. She is the corporations’ darling and the media is happy to allow her every edge and spin.

  11. Has he seen his candidate with a dress on, for that matter has anyone, including Bill?
    I keep saying if the Bern wants a quick win demand Hilly wears a dress at the next debate

  12. He’s a Hillary Dem. He can say anything and get a pass. When the hell will JT come to realize this basic fact of MSM?

  13. Speaking of unattractive, he’s not exactly Brad Pitt. By his own standards, that means he should be fired.
