Clinton: Half of Trump’s supporters are a ‘basket of deplorables’


From NY Post: Hillary Clinton said Friday night that half of the supporters for her rival Donald Trump are a “basket of deplorables.”

Clinton made the remarks at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan and urged supporters to “stage an intervention” if they have friends who might vote Trump.

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’” Clinton said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.”

Clinton also charged that Trump has “given voice” to white nationalist and anti-Semitic ideas by re-tweeting their “rhetoric.’’

The Trump campaign said that with the remarks Clinton “revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans.”


Of course, Hillary is now backtracking on that statement. The hashtag #basketofdeplorables was trending yesterday on Twitter. So Hillary had to reply. From MSN:

“Clinton’s aides defended her efforts to define a significant chunk of Trump’s supporters as out of step with American values, and the candidate issued a statement Saturday afternoon saying she regretted using the word “half” to describe those supporters.

“That was wrong,” Clinton said. “But let’s be clear, what’s really ‘deplorable’ is that Donald Trump hired a major advocate for the so-called ‘alt-right’ movement to run his campaign and that David Duke and other white supremacists see him as a champion of their values.”

In her remarks at the fundraiser, Clinton also called for empathy for the other “half” of Trump’s supporters.

“That other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they’re just desperate for change,” Clinton said. “It doesn’t really even matter where it comes from.

“They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different — they won’t wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they’re in a dead end,” she continued. “Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.”

  2. Can someone explain why BozoHO had to give a blah-blah-blah 9-11 speech while they were reading off the role call of victims ceremony?
    Besides the usual dumb crap he said,
    I found it intrusive and insulting, you know just like I find him and Hill and the whole bunch of commies running things.

    These creaps have something up there sleeve and I thing both parties are in on it.

  3. the liberals have complained how trump said stuff that he maybe ought not have said but thought more about before saying. I wonder if this diarrhea of the mouth by shillary is another sign that her brain is succumbing to being run by Satan for decades (and eroded)

  4. She regretted she use the word half not what she said about us and I think she wishes she would have said 90% she never said she wishes she would have said less!

  5. I find the venue that she made the ‘deplorable’ statement interesting. Does she not know that after the Orlando shooting, there is a large LGBTQ contingent voting for Trump AND being trained to conceal-n-carry? After the Orlando shooting, a large portion of the LGBTQ community felt like sitting ducks and realize that had they been trained in firearms, the number of deceased would be a fraction of what it was. Hit-lie-ary, you need to get better informed about the real world, not the make believe world you live in.

  6. Setting aside for the moment my belief that the whole thing is a total sham, it is definitely a major slip down the slide to perdition. One should not forget that, in premise, whoever “wins” is supposed to represent ALL of us, not just the ones who voted for her.

    Of course, with her, she has no intention of representing anyone other than herself and her shareholders. She’s rather annoyed by the whole process and, let’s face it, she isn’t really “into you”.

    She just wants George to put this all behind so she can take a nap and her aides can begin stealing in earnest. I mean really. She just insulted a huge slice of her constituency. Worse, she actually THINKS much worse things than this.

    I’ve been complaining for years that the least they could do would be to give the impression that they understood who they worked for. Not her. This thing is profoundly evil. It is worse than any of us can truly imagine. This is the sort of dark entity that would suck the life from any room. We’d better get the holy water ready. We’re gonna need it.

  7. Does it not concern her that even half the number of trump supporters out number the fools that support her.

    That is of course if we speak of real numbers.

  8. I cannot fathom this. A politician may very well renounce or “disavow” the Ku Klux Klan, for example, but what politician in his right mind would refuse a vote?
    But that’s Killary, the Klownish Koughing Kween for you: Her Satanic Majesty’s Contempt for the Regular Blue Collar Redneck Joe—whatever his skin color, class or condition.
    Now we have to BREAK THROUGH people’s NORMALCY BIAS BUBBLE. Everyone, it seems, lives in his own bubble, and to present the contrary information—in this case true—people have to overcome their COGNITIVE DISSONANCE. “Ay, there’s the rub.” So monsters like Hitlery know how to play the ball where it lay! We have to press on!

    If cab driving has taught me anything—and it most definitely has, because I value my economic and physical SURVIVAL—it is this: The only thing we have to agree on is where we’re going. So I look upon professional driving as having taught me MORE about how to talk—and to listen—to people than teaching itself has: I am in the position of being contradicted and having to deal with it.
    In my travels, I have driven every sort of passenger, from the Top Drawer to the Dregs, the Scum of the Earth. Some of these passengers are the WORST PEOPLE you could ever meet outside of prison or the corporate boardroom. I don’t have to LIKE them; All I have to do is DRIVE them. (And, Yes, I have had police remove a few of them from my cab). So if I came out and told them what I really feel about them, I could lose the remainder of my teeth, I could be stabbed or shot, I could be robbed. (Or “could have been,” if we want to look at it that way). But here is Herr Hitlery, spewing her VENOMOUS VICIOUS VILE SPLEEN’S BILE!

    WHEN are ordinary people going to WAKE UP and ACCEPT the wisdom of the late, great George Carlin? “They [the Ruling Elite] don’t care about you! They don’t care about you! AT ALL! AT ALL! AT ALL!” We ordinary blue collar working stiffs have GOT to WAKE UP and ACCEPT that our politicians CANNOT save us! They don’t want to! Hillary doesn’t want to save us! She would rather EXTERMINATE us!

    But I see the gambit: Hillary Clinton is the World’s condign punishment IF enough of us don’t WISE UP.

  9. Last night Geraldo called Pensacola the redneck riviera. Guess where my next vacation will be.

    • What a sleaze Geraldo turned out to be. I remember he was vicious vs Ron Paul rallies/campaign, too (2007-2008). I also did not know Geraldo was a Jewish Republican until just now (Wiki).

      These folks waiting in line in Pensacola for Trump rally look like great people to me. Geraldo must not really know what a Redneck really is, but that would be stereotypical prejudice by a Hispanic New Yorker.

    • Just saw this photo at twitter…

      The red stands for Republican & Trump’s red tie, I’m sure, & NOT for Redneck! Red also stands out more than any other color, to get people’s attention!

  17. First we have Hugo’s “Les Miserables”, and now we have [K]illary’s, “Les Deplorables”–great–I’ve always wanted to be literary! 🙂

    ” “There is a point at which the unfortunate and the infamous are associated and confounded in a single word, a fatal word, Les Misérables.” – Victor Hugo, “ Les Misérables.”

    Now, all we need to do is take the word, “Misérables.” and insert the word, “Deplorables”–
    “D E P L O R…A B L E S, [no fuss!]–is a name that a shame never has been connected with, Deplorables, that’s US!”
    {To the Tune, “Harrigan” by George M. Cohan–and, my sincere apologies to Mr. Cohan for altering his lyrics just a wee bit. 🙂 }[I love that song, though–it sort of makes me wish my heritage was Harrigan, along with MacRae 🙂 ]
