Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell shocked liberals when he said there are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women during a newspaper interview.
Well, maybe the former Pennsylvania Governor should leave the Democratic Party if that is the way he thinks.
Some say what the former governor said was man talk as men do talk that way. I hope I’m not giving away any secrets or breaking any codes, but men do talk that way about women as women do talk that way about men. As an adult, you should be able to say what you want when you want to say it and how you want to say but always realize some consequences come with your speech.
The former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania inserted foot-in-mouth on Wednesday as he tried to take a shot at Donald Trump and ended up declaring, “There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women.”
The jaw-dropping remark came as Ed Rendell, speaking to The Washington Post, said he believed sexist remarks Trump has made about women would hurt him in the general election, especially among Republicans.
“Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure,” Rendell, who also served as the mayor of Philadelphia, told The Post.
“For everyone 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.”
Rendell then continued: “There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally.”
The “ugly”crack was quickly denounced, even by Rendell allies.
Sabrina Singh, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Senate nominee Katie McGinty, whose campaign is chaired by Rendell, told Philly.com, “Governor Rendell’s comments were completely off-base and inappropriate.
I shouldn’t be shocked that a Democratic leader such as Rendell said that should I?
I have seen a lot of women who I didn’t think were particularly attractive, and I’m sure there are a lot of women who think the same of me. So what? Most all of us have found someone to marry and believe we are the most beautiful people in each others lives. We look forward to growing old together. Physical beauty may be what some need, at least as an initial attraction but for most, individual personality will usually win out in the end.
I think this comment will only help Trump. Rendell thinks that by calling most American women ugly, he can rally them against Trump because Trump has been associated with beautiful women most of his life.
Trump has always recognized talent in all the people in his life. He has given women opportunities in fields that women rarely could advance in, and he did it decades ago. He chose women for construction management jobs because they were tough, not because they were pretty.
