How about my guy Ed Rendell? The former Philadelphia mayor and Pennsylvania governor has been out of the politics game for five years now, but seemingly always pops back into relevance and is good for a sound bite or two a year. Eddy sure has a knack for picking his spots and usually ruffles some PC feathers doing so; rare form from the Democratic party. Today was no different. When talking about Donald Trump, Rendell just fired out some truth bombs about our country’s population — specifically females — and I’m sure he’s catching heat for it as I type these words.
From The AP:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell says Donald Trump’s past comments on women will likely come back to haunt him because Rendell says “there are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women.”
The Democrat was offering his thoughts to The Washington Post on the likely Republican nominee’s prospects for success in the Philadelphia suburbs when he made the comment. Rendell says Trump’s comments might gain him some working-class Democratic voters, but will cost him Republican women because he says “people take that stuff personally.”
Sure, Rendell’s views are certainly skewed given the area he governed. As a guy that spent the first 18 years of his life in Philly and then moved to Florida for college, I can willingly admit there’s a vast difference in talent pools. It’s as night and day as it gets.
But he’s not wrong. In fact, most people in not just the United States, but the entire world, are downright unfuckable. I’m talking a 75-25 ratio of disgusting creatures to decent looking folks. How the human population has continued to grow is a testament to how non-superficial we actually are as a species despite contrary opinion. Small victories, guys.
But uggos do hold grudges, and with them comprising the overwhelming majority of our citizens — both male and female — that could be problematic for the Trump train..
