At a fund raiser in New York on Friday evening, Hillary Clinton said half of Donald Trump’s supporters are a basket of ‘deplorables’. Donald Trump currently has 44% of voters on his side – according to the latest polls.
So, Clinton thinks 22% (half of the 44%) of the US public are deplorable human beings. This shows the Presidential hopeful lives in her own world, and shows disrespect.
“You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
