Yesterday I heard the softer, gentler Hillary. Lower, less scratchy voice for a press conference. But it didn't last long. During an LGBTQ fundraiser for rich gays for her campaign in New York hosted by Barbara Streisand, Hillary attacked a quarter of America, calling half of Trump's supporters a "basket of deplorables. "You know, just to be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables."
“Right?” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it,” Clinton continued. “And unfortunately there are people like that."
Five months ago the liberal FiveThirtyEight.com website found that Trump voters' median household income was higher than the median in every state, sometimes by a wide margin; and that 44% of Trump voters have college undergraduate degrees, compared to 29% of US adults. In fact, the median household of a Trump voters is far higher than that of a Hillary supporter.
How many times have we been told (negatively with a sneer) that non-college educated white men are Trump's supporters? Were Obama's supporters ever described as non-college educated black men, and yet he had 99% of the black vote.
Now who is the mean spirited bigot whose favorite policies kill babies, great mayhem in the middle east and lock minorities into ghettos? Hillary is a crook. Now we can add deplorable to that.
