In a quote that will likely haunt Ed Rendell for the rest of his political career, Rendell has now said that because of an abundance of ugly women, Donald Trump will not be elected president. Though Donald Trump has said a number of anti-female things, Rendell’s recent comments are raising questions with voters. By suggesting that there are “more ugly women than attractive women in the United States,” what was Rendell really trying to say?
According to the Inquisitr, Trump is having his own aggravation with offensive comments being connected with his associates, as his former employee, Anthony Senecal was questioned by the Secret Service for threatening to kill President Obama. Senecal believes that President Obama is a “secret Muslim” and is in office to undermine the U.S. government. Senecal suggested that the military should have assassinated President Obama in his first term. But today, more people are talking about Rendell than Senecal.
The New York Daily News says Ed Rendell, former DNC Chairman, ex Pennsylvania Gov, and huge Hillary Clinton supporter, has claimed that Trump’s comments about women will backfire against him because “there are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women.”
In an interview to address Donald Trump’s chances, Rendell started to sound more like Trump with an anti-female tone and less like an elected official when he explained why he believes that Trump’s sexist way of thinking will be the thing that eventually thwarts his chances to be elected.
“Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? For every one he’ll lose one and a half, 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.”
Rendell, who is a superdelegate for Hillary Clinton, went on to explain that since there are likely more ugly women in the country, women will take Trump’s comments personally and not vote for him.
Jezebel says that though Rendell has a point about Trump’s comments about women who are less than perfect, Rendell put his foot in his mouth when he reduced women to the way that they look. Jezebel wants to know if Rendell could share this scientific study with everyone.
“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.”
Mother Jones explains that despite the fact that many people believe that Donald Trump will eventually lose because of his hair-trigger temper and nasty comments aimed at many segments of the population, Rendell didn’t do himself or Clinton any favors when talking about the way women look in America.
Mother Jones explains that instead of talking about the political prowess of Hillary Clinton, he instead decided to talk about the solidarity amongst homely women across the country and why they will rebel against Donald Trump. The media has asked the Clinton campaign to comment on the things that Rendell had to say and why he thinks so many American women are ugly, but there has been no response. It is being suggested that Clinton will stay as far away as possible from Rendell’s comments.
But that doesn’t mean that all politicians will avoid commenting on Rendell’s thoughts on the American female aesthetic, according to Philly. Sabrina Singh, spokeswoman for the Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Katie McGinty, made a statement about Rendell’s comments, as Rendell is the chairman of McGinty’s campaign.
“Governor Rendell’s comments were completely off-base and inappropriate.”
Do you think that Ed Rendell needs to apologize for his own misogynistic comments?
