Revenge of the deplorables
After Donald Trump’s stunning upset of Hilliary Clinton there have been numerous explanations/excuses given by her supporters and the media outlets that endorsed her. While Mr. Trump certainly made outlandish comments that were unacceptable and racist, Secretary Clinton is guilty of something similar. When she referred to half of Mr. Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables” and “irredeemable,” she was guilty of a form of discrimination.
My bet is, those statements played a significant role in strengthening the Trump supporters’ resolve and pushing some who were on the fence away from Ms. Clinton.
