Hillary: over 47% of Trump supporters are "Basket of deplorables"

The other day, Hillary made the mistake of actually being honest...

you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? [Laughter/applause]. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.

If Hillary is forced to drop out of the race either before she takes office or just after (due to health or scandal) and Tim Kaine (her VP pick) takes over, it would not be much better:

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said Saturday his running mate Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to apologize for her “basket of deplorables” comment about supporters of Donald Trump.


"Hillary Clinton’s campaign defended the Democratic presidential nominee on Monday, following criticism of her comment that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are in a “basket of deplorables.”

So, that is what Hillary, Tim, and the DNC think of 25% of the country.

Because you are worried about taxes and the economy, unlike Hillary who became a multi-millionaire while working in civil service drawing a salary of just a couple hundred thousand a year, that means you need to "check your privilege".

Because you are worried about gangs and crime and don't have the luxury of an armed escort and guards with guns everywhere you go, you are racist.

Because you think that it would be a mistake to bring in thousands and thousands of foreigners that don't believe in the American values of freedom and our bill of rights, want to impose Shari law on the land, and can't be properly vetted to ensure that they are not terrorists, you are Islamophobic.

Because you feel that only women (i.e. no male genitalia) should be allowed in women's locker rooms and bathrooms, you are sexist.

Though I am still not a fan of Trump, his reply to Hillary was spot on and he should build the rest of his campaign on it:

I was . . . deeply shocked and alarmed this Friday to hear my opponent attack, slander, smear and demean these wonderful, amazing people who are supporting our campaign.

Our support comes from every part of America, and every walk of life. We have the support of cops and soldiers, carpenters and welders, the young and the old, and millions of working class families who just want a better future.

These were the people Hillary Clinton so viciously demonized. These were among the countless Americans that Hillary Clinton called deplorable, irredeemable and un-American. She called these patriotic men and women every vile name in the book – she called them racist, sexist, xenophobic, and Islamaphobic.

She called them a “basket of deplorables” in both a speech and an interview. She divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings.


While Hillary Clinton lives a sequestered life behind gates and walls and guards, she mocks and demeans hardworking Americans who only want their own families to enjoy a fraction of the security enjoyed by our politicians.


To this day, she still won’t take accountability for her role in unleashing ISIS across the Middle East – or for putting Iran on the path to a nuclear weapon.

Hillary Clinton believes she is above the law, that she is above accountability, and that she is above each and every one of you.

Read the whole thing. This ad is a good start, he needs to continue.

I don't feel that there is a "great" option for President this year (and have felt that way for a good number of recent elections) and the argument could be made that Trump is not the "right man at the right time" but for all of his faults and flaws, he has one really great thing going for him, he is NOT Hillary Clinton and we already know what she has done to this country as First Lady and as SOS. I am not sure if we can afford to see what she would do as POTUS.
