Rauner campaign trolls Pritzker ahead of Indivisible Chicago event

Thursday, Aug 30, 2018 - Posted by Rich Miller

* From August 21…

Today, Indivisible Illinois endorsed JB Pritzker and Juliana Stratton for governor and lieutenant governor. The statewide coalition is made up of over 50 local chapters spanning every congressional district in Illinois, and their endorsement follows Indivisible Chicago’s from after the primary election.

* Rauner campaign…

Snapchat Filter Highlights Pritzker Insult of Bernie Sanders at Indivisible Event

Today, JB Pritzker will be holding an event with Indivisible Chicago – a group that strongly supports Bernie Sanders.

But in 2016, Pritzker called Bernie Sanders a “Yutz” on Twitter. The term “Yutz” is Yiddish for a foolish, annoying, or socially inept person. The tweet has never been deleted.

To remind voters of Pritzker’s attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of voters, the Rauner campaign is launching a Snapchat filter geo-targeted to the Indivisible event featuring Pritzker’s old comment.

View the filter below:

* JB even included a handy link to the Urban Dictionary definition…



…Adding… Zing!…

    Rauner giving Bernie an early start on his 2020 bid!


  2. - Real - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:47 am:

    I voted for Bernie and will be voting for JB. Your point Rauner?


  3. - Amalia - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:48 am:

    that interview in the Daily News was terrible BY Sanders’ words. empty rhetoric, uninformed words.


  4. - Colin O'Scopy - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:51 am:

    Sigh. This is the best that BTIA can come up with? My advice to the Rauner team: Fold your tents now. Everything from this point forward is a waste of good money and staffs’ time.


  5. - Sugar Corn - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:53 am:

    Illinois Bernie fans who voted for Donald Trump might also vote for Bruce Rauner. All 29 of them. How cute of Bruce, spending his special money to court them.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:54 am:

    When you troll your opponent for having a constituency… while the real fact is your own campaign has no constituency to speak of…


  7. - Hieronymus - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:56 am:

    Here’s an idea for “Question of the Day” - what colorful Yiddish word would you use to describe the governor, and why? /s


  8. - Albany Park Patriot - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 10:57 am:

    Weird how Democrats don’t all have to be loyal to a single godshead figure.


  9. - Henry Francis - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:02 am:

    What’s with all these goofy snap chat filters? Does anyone use them?

    And isn’t the Guv just opening the door for JB, and everyone else, to call him a yutz?


  10. - Keyrock - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:03 am:

    Hieronymous — excellent idea. Even if said as snark.


  11. - Lucky Pierre - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:09 am:

    Weird how Democrats don’t all have to be loyal to a single godshead figure.

    Really? then why do they keep Mike Madigan, the most unpopular politician in Illinois by far, as the Speaker of the House and leader of the Democratic party?


  12. - Chicago Cynic - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:10 am:

    “Here’s an idea for “Question of the Day” - what colorful Yiddish word would you use to describe the governor, and why? /s”

    Love it. But there are so many to choose from. Certainly putz. But also schmuck for sure. And technically he is a shagitz (gentile male). So many more from which to choose.


  13. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:11 am:

    Once again we see the governor’s incredible ability to unite disparate groups together on the one thing they agree upon: that he’s gotta go.


  14. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:11 am:

    I am happy JB sees Sanders as a loon.
    It gives me hope that JB isn’t a loon too.

    ===Here’s an idea for “Question of the Day” - what colorful Yiddish word would you use to describe the governor, and why? /s===

    YiddishCowboy would have a distinct advantage…


  16. - a drop in - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:14 am:

    So Rauner is saying Indivisible is not consistent?

    Well, he should know.


  17. - Yiddishcowboy - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:16 am:

    Rauner has established that he is (simultaneously) a “schlmiel” and a “schlmozle”. Rauner would spill soup in his own lap.


  18. - Ducky LaMoore - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:18 am:

    Is Rauner going to highlight all of JBs endorsements? He might need to hire more staff if so.


  19. - Gruntled University Employee - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:21 am:

    ===What’s with all these goofy snap chat filters? Does anyone use them?===

    My thirteen year old daughter and all her friends do. Oh wait, never mind.


  20. - siualum - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:22 am:

    Childish, schoolyard taunts.


  21. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:25 am:

    One Jewish person saying another may be a yutz, now that’s groundbreakingly offensive.

    What do Rauner and his supporters think of Bernie Sanders and his politics, since they brought him up?

    I think Indivisible Illinois knows full well the difference between Rauner and his vulture capitalism approach to government and Pritzker. They also have to know about the pettiness of these attacks, that they mask Rauner’s cruelty and utter failure as governor. These kind of attacks don’t seem to be working anyway, according to polls and Rauner’s numbers.


  22. - wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:31 am:

    That’s some deep-dive oppo research by BTIA(TM).

    They’re real moyshe kapoyer.


  23. - Montrose - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:31 am:

    I hope to God there wasn’t high-fiving in the Rauner campaign office when the BTIA came up with this burn.


  24. - walker - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:32 am:

    Yiddish always makes me smile


  25. - MickJ - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:32 am:

    So, GovJunk is a Sanders’ supporter?


  26. - James Knell - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:34 am:

    OMG, JB insulted Bernie?!? I’m gonna vote for Rauner after all! Just kidding…

    Rauner’s Yiddish word rhymes with yutz… at it begins with “P”.


  27. - zatoichi - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:36 am:

    They are making Bernie look very tanned, rested, ready in that poster.


  28. - Magster - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:43 am:

    “Here’s an idea for “Question of the Day” - what colorful Yiddish word would you use to describe the governor, and why? /s”

    Hah, I can think of several, not one of which is Mensch.


  29. - City Zen - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:45 am:

    After reviewing the last mayoral election results, I can assure you Chicago is quite divisible.


  30. - Cheryl44 - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:48 am:

    Alte kaker


  31. - City Zen - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 11:52 am:

    There’s a lot of white space on that flier. Looks like Bruce is sticking with the “less is more” approach.


  32. - Henry Francis - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 12:00 pm:

    Ok fine. JB wavered on supporting Obama. And JB called Bernie a yutz. And guess what? Both Obama and Bernie are endorsing JB for the upcoming election.

    Hey Bruce? What have you said about Trump in the past? And can you count on Trump’s endorsement?


  33. - The Dude Abides - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 12:26 pm:

    Given that Hillary beat Trump by 17% in Illinois I don’t think this is going to leave a mark. Try harder BTIA.


  34. - JS Mill - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 12:50 pm:

    I heard JB called Bernie a “stinker” too.

    Mrs. Brady hates, just hates, that word.


  35. - Northsider - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 1:17 pm:

    –what colorful Yiddish word would you use to describe the governor, and why?–

    One word? Oy.

    Schlemiel and schlemazel both fit, as does yutz.

    Also: Nebbish, nudge, nudnik, pischer and schmendrik.


  36. - A Jack - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 1:23 pm:

    I am sure that Ives or McCann would use a much stronger term than “yutz” to describe Rauner.


  37. - Yiddishcowboy - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 2:12 pm:

    In honor of one of my favorite movies, Scarface, Rauner is what’s known as a “Chazer”–”a pig that dont fly straight.” –Frank Lopez, explaining the term to Tony Montana at the disco…before the bloodbath.


  38. - Amalia - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 2:14 pm:

    sadly, statistics I’ve read since the 2016 election say that 20% of Bernie voters in the primary went for Trump. I’ve read commentary from an Illinois Sanders delegate who explained why. Perhaps Rauner believes enough of the Bernie people will vote for him. After all, Bernie is not a Democrat.


  39. - Anonymiss - Thursday, Aug 30, 18 @ 4:15 pm:

    Congrats, Team Rauner! You’ve inspired an entire comment thread of Yiddish, just in time for the Jewish holidays.


  40. - Hieronymus - Friday, Aug 31, 18 @ 8:06 am:

    Hmm, I just may now owe Rich an apology if he feels the need to spend the weekend updating his list of banned words. So many …

    Indeed, intending only a bit of chuckle-inducing snark, I was apparently quit unaware of the latent Yiddish wordstorm waiting to burst forth.
