Basket Of Deplorables


I think she was right on target …. I don’t believe it applies to half … However, the views held and promulgated by the current presidential candidate aren’t the ones America was based on!!

Hillary Clinton sparked outrage Friday night by saying half of Trump’s supporters are a “basket of deplorables.”

Republicans compared it to Mitt Romney’s statement in 2012 about how 47% of the electorate just wanted free stuff and they’d never vote for him. Also brought up was Obama’s quote in 2008 about how many conservatives cling to guns and religion. Obama survived his statement. Romney did not. Of course only one of those statements was accurate.

Clinton’s actual quote was “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’ Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that, and he has lifted them up.”

That’s some pretty mean stuff to say about a quarter of the electorate, even if it is true. It’s true.

Trump has support from the KKK…
