When Hillary Clinton took the stage at a LGBT fundraiser event in New York, she reached a new low by aiming her negative and hateful rhetoric at American voters.
While speaking at the fundraiser, Hillary claimed, “you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”
She then clarified the deplorables inside the basket, stating Trump supporters are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
As the Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump consistently garners 40% support in national polls. By categorizing half of Trump’s supporters as racist and sexist, Hillary Clinton has insulted a large population of the country simply for their support of the Republican nominee.
Among Trump’s supporters are members of the law enforcement community, veterans, farmers, and working-class Americans. They are not sexist and racist simply for their support of a political candidate. Hillary Clinton’s generalization of Trump supporters makes her look as bigoted as she so often refers accuses Donald Trump of being.
