“Basket Of Deplorables…”
Hillary referring to some Americans as a “basket of deplorables.” Now that’s rich! Are people really shocked? Just another example of her bad judgment. Hillary will stop at nothing to get in power. Trump is correct. She’s falling like a rock, getting ill, and the public is getting fed up with her total corruption.
New York (CNN)Hillary Clinton told an audience of donors Friday night that half of Donald Trump’s supporters fall into “the basket of deplorables,” meaning people who were racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
She added, “And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”
Clinton went on to say that some of these people were “irredeemable” and “not America.”
The Democratic nominee made similar comments in an interview the day before with an Israeli television station. But when they were widely reported Friday night, Trump and Republicans quickly pounced on the remarks, which drew comparisons to President Barack Obama’s comments about clinging to “guns and religion” at a 2008 campaign fundraiser and Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remark in 2012.

Given that there's been entire books dedicated to Hillary's deplorable actions it's a new low, even for her, to attack 100,000,000 Americans

Hillary shows contempt for people in her "basket". I think she blew a gasket. Her campaign headed for a casket.
