"As usual, angry Danni is wrong. Hillary's deplorable was a major gaffe because it was seen a generalization of Republican voters. It may have cost her the election. I agree this idiot is in fact a deplorable, and quite a dumb one at that.

This link gives her actual words:
""You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic " you name it."
"But that other basket of people who are people who feel that government has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they are just desperate for change. "
Clinton seems to me to have been pretty clear in her distinction, but the sound bite played into the hands of Trump's campaign and acted to reinforce their victimhood. The real question moving into November is how many people in the second basket will vote for Trump after 3+ years of chaos, because if they do, the term "deplorable" might just apply.
