Hillary's Deplorable Moment

Her insult reveals arrogance and contempt for Trump supporters.

Remember just last week when Hillary Clinton’s campaign concluded that it needed to send a more positive message focusing on “inclusiveness”? Well, Hillary has a rather strange way of telegraphing her “inclusive” views. At a fundraiser in New York Friday, Hillary said of Donald Trump supporters, “To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.”

Not surprisingly she was called out for her insulting remarks. Trump’s running mate Mike Pence said, “Hillary, they are not a basket of anything, and they deserve your respect.” With criticism growing, Clinton attempted to walk back her insult just a bit. She stated, “I regret saying ‘half’ — that was wrong.” Notice that she didn’t regret calling Trump supporters “deplorables.” After all, it was just a couple of weeks ago that she denounced his supporters as racist. She just regrets her estimation of “half.” For this “regret” she gets a pass from the Leftmedia. Remember when Mitt Romney was lambasted by the media for his comment that 47% of Americans were dependent upon the government? He was right, but he shouldn’t have said it because it was dismissive of a large segment of Americans and provided political fodder for Obama and the Democrats.

What is deplorable is just how condescending Hillary’s views of many Americans are. Leftists like Hillary believe that people serve the interest of government, rather than government being beholden to citizens via the Constitution.

Meanwhile, Trump made short work of turning the kerfuffle into an ad:
