The Courage of Hillary Clinton Shines Through as She Stands By a Truth About Trump Supporters
Thus we find Clinton in the middle of a media storm for saying that half of Donald Trumps supporters are a basket of deplorables. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trumps supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up, Clinton told a crowd Friday.
Its deplorable that Trump has built his campaign largely on prejudice and paranoia and given a national platform to hateful views and voices, including by retweeting fringe bigots with a few dozen followers and spreading their message to 11 million people.
Its deplorable that hes attacked a federal judge for his Mexican heritage, bullied a Gold Star family because of their Muslim faith, and promoted the lie that our first black president is not a true American.
So I wont stop calling out bigotry and racist rhetoric in this campaign, Clinton vowed.
Well, Hillary NOW seems to be backtracking and is actually apologizing about the deplorable comment.
Thanks loads, but I don't need help in understanding anything.
I totally agree with her statement about tRump's supporters being deplorable, but I do hope that Hillary saying that she regrets saying that about his supporters is not turned around by the so-called "Liberal" media to make HER seem like the bad person in all of this. I wish she had said he was deplorable--KEEP the pressure on him.
The so-called "Liberal" media very seldom if EVER do Hillary Clinton many if ANY favors, and with all of the lies, hateful, racist rhetoric that comes out of tRumps nasty mouth is very seldom fact-checked, meanwhile up until this week Hillary's emails dominated press coverage of her even though the email issue is and has been a NON-issue for quite some time.
This can be read one of two ways. Either she meant less than half or more than half. I prefer the latter since I think it is more accurate.
According to SOME, Hillary didn't even say the above quote that you posted
It's been like that for a while in this country. The Yahoos get their megaphones and play victim. Pox News has them conditioned.
