Donald Trump, who opposes political correctness, is highly offended by Hillary Clinton’s description of his supporters. Clinton nailed it previously when she brought attention to the rise of the Alt-Right, a racist faction of conservative voters who support Trump. And Friday night, Hills told an audience of donors that half of Donald’s supporters fall into “the basket of deplorables,” meaning people who are racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic.
That, of course, is trending on Twitter now.
As for the other half, Hillary described them as people who are looking for change in any form because of economic anxiety, then she urged her supporters to empathize with them.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said, according to CNN. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
“And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric,” she continued.
Hillary added that some of these people were “irredeemable” and “not America.”
Donald went to his Twitter account to express his anger over her remarks.
“Wow, Hillary Clinton was SO INSULTING to my supporters, millions of amazing, hard working people. I think it will cost her at the Polls!” he tweeted.

We think Hillary was far too kind. Donald mocked a physically disabled reporter. The GOP presidential nominee attacked a fallen war hero’s family. He’s insulted women, Mexicans, denigrated black people and Latinos. We need to put his supporters in a basket and make Donald pay for it. The rise in non-politically correct rhetoric has made our country look just awful. There are no lines this man has not crossed. He’s not presidential. The thin-skinned billionaire has zero experience.
Suck it, Donald. You dish it out but you can’t take it, Amateur.
