New York City – Hillary Clinton repeatedly points out that Donald Trump is not careful with his words. But in a scripted speech on Friday before a private high end campaign fundraiser in New York City, she said the biggest gaffe of her political career. She said, “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.” It will cost Hillary at the polls as her numbers have been in a downward slide the last two weeks and will continue on that path as Trump’s increase.
Immediately when this story broke on Saturday the Twitterverse exploded with protests on #basketofdeplorables. Tweets came from Trump supporters and independents. They also came from a lot of Democrat voters who have had enough of her lies concerning Benghazi, her email indiscretions, and honesty about her health. This latest episode was the deciding factor.
The liberal media usually covers for Hillary but sometimes they turn on their own when they don’t have a choice. This is one of those occasions. An article from the Washington Post headlined, “Did Hillary Clinton just make her own ‘47 percent’ gaffe?” The 47 percent is in reference to the blunder Mitt Romney made during the 2012 general election campaign and may have cost him the election when he said that because 47 percent of the people are on government benefits they would never vote for him.
Piers Morgan, who is not a supporter of Donald Trump Tweeted: “Hillary branding Trump supporters a ‘basket of deplorables’ was an awful slur.”
In prepared remarks about Hillary’s condescending demeanor when she spoke about millions of his supporters, Donald Trump spoke today in the best speech of this political season to date. He said:
“There’s nothing I’ve enjoyed more than the time I’ve spent with our service members, police officers, and also our firefighters and paramedics.
“They embody the goodness and decency of our country.
“I was thus deeply shocked and alarmed this Friday to hear my opponent attack, slander, smear and demean these wonderful, amazing people who are supporting our campaign.
“Our support comes from every part of America, and every walk of life. We have the support of cops and soldiers, carpenters and welders, the young and the old, and millions of working class families who just want a better future.
“These were the people Hillary Clinton so viciously demonized. These were among the countless Americans that Hillary Clinton called deplorable, irredeemable and un-American. She called these patriotic men and women every vile name in the book – she called them racist, sexist, xenophobic, and Islamaphobic.
“She called them a ‘basket of deplorables’ in both a speech and an interview. She divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings.
“Hillary Clinton made these comments at one of her high-dollar fundraisers in Wall Street.”
Hillary “divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings.”
– Donald Trump
“She and her wealthy donors all had a good laugh. They were laughing at the very people who pave the roads she drives on, paint the buildings she speaks in, and keep the lights on in her auditorium.
“Hillary Clinton is an insider, supported by powerful insiders, attacking Americans who have no political power.
“Hillary Clinton spoke with hatred and derision for the people who make this country run.
“She spoke with contempt for the people who thanklessly follow the rules, pay their taxes, and scratch out a living for their families.
“While Hillary Clinton lives a sequestered life behind gates and walls and guards, she mocks and demeans hardworking Americans who only want their own families to enjoy a fraction of the security enjoyed by our politicians.
“After months of hiding from the press, Hillary Clinton has revealed her true thoughts.
“She revealed herself to be a person who looks down on the proud citizens of our country as subjects for her to rule over.
“Her comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as Secretary of State, hide and delete her emails, put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lie to Congress, and sell government favors and access through her Foundation.”
