Remember when Mitt Romney said some offensive comments about the 47% of those who support Obama during a speech?
That speech cost Mitt the US Presidency…
Will these latest words spewed out by Hillary Clinton cost her the election?
During a “LGBT for Hillary” fundraiser on Friday night, HRC said that she places half of Donald Trump’s supporters into what she calls a “basket of deplorables.”
More specifically, Hillary said…
“–you know, just to be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump’s 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. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”
Republicans of all shapes and sizes demanding that Hillary Clinton apologize for her grossly generalized statement, where she calls over 11 million Americans the worst of the worst.
Donald Trump responded to Hillary’s racists and offensive rant by saying her “true feelings” had come out.
“How can she be President of our country when she has such contempt and disdain for so many great Americans?”
“Hillary Clinton should be ashamed of herself.”
Zerohedge reports further on Hillary Clinton’s “racist” remarks…
–on Friday night during an LGBT fundraiser for her campaign in New York hosted by Barbara Streisand, Hillary unleashed an unprecedented ad hominem attack on what amounts a quarter of America, calling half of Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables.”
“That other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they’re just desperate for a change,” she said. “They don’t buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different. They won’t wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they’re in a dead end. Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.”
In other words, Hillary believes that half of America either see its future in a dead end, or is a gruesome caricature of a “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” redneck, something she has recently equated to the “alt right.” In a recent speech Clinton tried to tie her GOP rival in with the so-called alt-right movement, a loose fringe group that exists largely online and often appeals to anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and white nationalist individuals.
While we enjoy Hillary’s attempts at broad-stroke stereotyping, what is rather ironic about Hillary’s instant alienation of about a quarter of Americans, is that five months ago the liberal FiveThirtyEight.com website found that Trump voters’ median household income was higher than the median in every state, sometimes by a wide margin; and that 44% of Trump voters have college undergraduate degrees, compared to 29% of US adults. In fact, the median household of a Trump voters is far higher than that of a Hillary supporter.
