DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE HILLARY CLINTON SAID FRIDAY THAT 50 PERCENT OF DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A ‘BASKET OF DEPLORABLES,’ WHICH MEANS SHE CONSIDERS ABOUT 25 PERCENT OF AMERICA TO BE “IRREDEEMABLE.”
EDITOR’S NEWS: Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have begun to slide dramatically, and last night she had a message for 25% of the American population who are not voting for her. She said you are deplorable and irredeemable. And racist, and sexist, and un-American. Today she felt bad for saying that and “apologized”.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said, according to CNN. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
Numerous polls have put Trump’s support numbers at around 45 percent. Half that is 22.5 percent–the exact slice of America with which Clinton seems to have a serious problem.
