Comments by former Democrat Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania exploded on social media Wednesday when he discussed Donald Trump’s electoral chances with “ugly women.”
“Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure,” Mr. Rendelltold The Washington Post. “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. There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women. People take that stuff personally.”
The former governor’s name started trending on Twitter after the story was published.
Mother Jones called Mr. Rendell’s comments “the worst theory” on why Hillary Clinton will be the next commander in chief.
