Did Clinton Go Too Far With Comments On 'Deplorable' Trump Supporters?
The Democratic nominee said she'd put roughly half of Trump's supporters in a "basket of deplorables."By Carter Woodiel | September 10, 2016
Hillary Clinton thinks half of Donald Trump supporters are "deplorables." She said that Friday night at a fundraiser in New York.
"You can put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," Clinton said. "The racists, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it."
What Clinton was trying to do was appeal to the other half of Trump voters in her analogy, the ones she says "feel the government has let them down" and are latching onto Trump's promise of a shake-up in Washington.
