Remember when he put his foot through his ass

The speaker was watching the news and there was an interview with Ed Rendell, the former Governor of Pennsylvania.  The speaker, recalling the time when Rendell made a joke about why Donald Trump’s misogynistic remarks would backfire — “There are probably more ugly women in America than attractive women”, then uttered this gem.   It is a mash up of “put his foot in his mouth” (say something tactless or embarrassing) and “talking through (one’s) ass” (to talk nonsense or exaggerate one’s achievements).  Certainly the body parts have been scrambled in this one.  A big thanks to Elliott for uttering this beauty and Leslie Opdenaker and Cheryl Rosato for passing it on!
