This fight between Hillary and Bernie is really getting nasty. It has now become a literal one.
They actually picked the perfect place to have the Democratic National Convention this summer, because here in Philly we just love a good fight.
I have been watching the back and forth on twitter, and it hasn't been pretty. Hillary's peeps say that Bernie's peeps are crazy, and that they are risking giving the presidency to the republicans and their billionaire groper, because of their dogmatic, obdurate, and unyielding behavior.
Bernie's peeps, on the other hand, believe that Hillary is no different than the republicans who they so resent, and that she is nothing more than a dishonest career politician who is prone to duplicitous behavior. They believe that they have been wronged by the democratic party, and they are threatening to take their G.H. Bass shoes and go walking.
Things got so bad that Hillary supporter, the actor Wendell Pierce, was arrested for allegedly assaulting a Bernie supporter. Apparently they were having a political discussion in the lobby of the Loews Hotel in Atlanta when things got a little heated. I hate when that happens.
The bottom line to all of this is that Bernie doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, even though it s mathematically impossible to overtake Hillary in the delegate count.
All poor Hillary wants to focus on the orange haired one, but she can't, because Bernie and his peeps keep yapping at her heels.
I was talking to a friend of mine today who was excited that her daughter had been selected to be one of the 10,000.00 volunteers at the convention here this summer. "It will be a great experience for her", she said. "A great resume builder."
I didn't have the heart to tell her that her daughter might be getting a crash course in something else: how to become a professional boxing referee.
Things could get that ugly.
Finally, speaking of ugly, did you see what the my former mayor and governor said about "ugly women" to the Washington Post?
"Former DNC Chairman and ex-Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a huge Hillary Clinton backer, did his best Donald Trump impersonation Wednesday, saying the GOP front-runner’s condescending comments about women will backfire because there are “there are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women.”
In an eye-opening interview with The Washington Post, Rendell, 72, was discussing Trump’s electoral prospects in the suburbs of Philadelphia, where Rendell was mayor from 1992 to 2000, when his comments suddenly began to resemble the mogul’s.
“Will he have some appeal to working-class Dems in Levittown or Bristol? Sure,” Rendell said. “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,” added Rendell, who is a superdelegate in the 2016 Democratic race backing Clinton."'[Source]
