Hillary Clinton’s contempt for American voters was on full display yesterday when during an LGBT “focused” Fundraiser in New York City hosted by Barbara Streisand, the Crooked One attacked Donald Trump’s supporters labeling them a “basket of deplorables.”
Desperate to please attendees who spent anywhere from $1,200, for limited availability, and as much as $250,000 for a ticket to hear the Crooked One screech, before a crowd of fellow Marxist elites, Clinton dripping of contempt for Trump supporters stated: “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….”
So what about the other half? Covering her bases just in case a Trump supporter decides at the last moment not to vote for Trump:
‘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….”

This morning after the checks have been deposited and credit slips safely tucked into her account, Clinton released a statement in which she apologized (not) for labeling “half” of Trump supporters “the deplorables.”
“I regret saying ‘half’ — that was wrong. But let’s be clear, what’s really ‘deplorable’ is that Donald Trump hired a major advocate for the so-called ‘alt-right’ movement to run his campaign and that David Duke and other white supremacists see him as a champion of their values.”
As reported by Bloomberg News, Clinton’s non-apology, in which she doubled down on the name calling and use of the race card was intended to tamp down the outrage sparked across social media by her vile remarks at yesterday’s fundraiser.
The statement was aimed at shutting down the blowback from the Trump campaign and Republicans and preserving Clinton’s appeal to moderate Republicans and independents. It came hours after she made the remarks that hearkened back to comments Barack Obama made in 2008 about people who cling to guns and religion and that Republican Mitt Romney made in 2012 about the 47 percent of Americans who were dependent on the government and would never vote for him….
Apology NOT ACCEPTED and for the record, Clinton attacked Trump supporters last week on Israeli TV where she used the same phrase “the deplorables”. (See: 2:07 of video)
So Hillary is now demanding that her supporters not listen those now labeled the “alt right.” She who is in bed with those who stone women, throw gays from rooftops, rape children, destroy Christian artifacts, slaughter Christians and whose primary agenda is to wipe the state of Israel off the map. How contemptuous of Clinton to espouse such propaganda on Israeli TV?
Ridicule, labeling, race baiting and name calling is all there is in Hillary Clinton’s repertoire since she’s a lying crook with no credibility whatsoever and now she may not even have that.
The hashtag #basketofdeplorables has been trending across social media for hours in what is a clear backlash against the Crooked One.
Crooked Hillary stepped into it up to her neck. There is now a video likening Clinton’s #basket of deplorables remark to Mitt Romney’s 47% statement back in 2012.
One more for the road. Trump supporters labeled by Progressives as “basket of deplorables” but these thugs are not? How so?
Suggestion to Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media, Progressive establishment of both parties aka NeverTrumpers who continue to lambast and look down their noses on Donald Trump and his supporters, “Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5
