Hillary: Half of Trump Supporters Belong in a “Basket of Deplorables”

Hillary: Half of Trump Supporters Belong in a “Basket of Deplorables”

“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”

As Hillary’s numbers drop and Democrats scratch their heads as they try to figure out why she’s not miles ahead of Trump, Hillary demonstrates one of the many qualities that make her unpalatable to American voters:  her contempt for them.

Like Kerry and Obama before her, Hillary just cannot contain her distaste for a large number of Americans.  At a fundraiser, she declared that half of Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.”

NBC News reports:

Hillary Clinton urged supporters late Friday not to be complacent about Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election, saying half of his backers were “desperate for change” but the other half belonged in a “basket of deplorables.”

Appearing at an LGBT gala fundraiser where Barbra Streisand performed, she said many of the GOP candidate’s voters were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”


Hillary goes on to explain her “baskets full of people” theory.

NBC continues:

Addressing the issue of Trump’s popularity, Clinton said: “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’ Right?  Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.

“And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up … he tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”

She continued: “Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but they are not America but the other basket … are people who feel that government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures. They are just desperate for change … they don’t buy everything he says but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different.

“There are only 60 days left to make our case and don’t get complacent. Don’t see the latest outrageous, offensive, inappropriate comment and think ‘well, he’s done this time’,” she said.

I guess she doesn’t believe there’s anything “outrageous, offensive, [or] inappropriate” about referring to millions of Americans as “deplorables.”

The Trump campaign responded by stating that Hillary has “ripped off her mask and shown her contempt for everyday Americans.”

“Just when Hillary Clinton said she was going to start running a positive campaign, she ripped off her mask and revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans. Tonight’s comments were more than another example of Clinton lying to the country about her emails, jeopardizing our national security, or even calling citizens ‘super-predators’ – this was Clinton, as a defender of Washington’s rigged system – telling the American public that she could care less about them. And what’s truly deplorable isn’t just that Hillary Clinton made an inexcusable mistake in front of wealthy donors and reporters happened to be around to catch it, it’s that Clinton revealed just how little she thinks of the hard-working men and women of America.” – Jason Miller, Senior Communications Advisor

Apparently, the Hillary camp is still defending the comment.

The Washington Post reports:

In a series of tweets, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded to criticism that emerged online in response to Clinton’s comments.

“She gave an entire speech about how the alt right movement is using his campaign to advance its hate movement,” Merrill wrote. “Obviously not everyone supporting Trump is part of the alt right, but alt right leaders are with Trump.”

“And their supporters appear to make up half his crowd when you observe the tone of his events,” he added.

Trump supporters, though, aren’t buying this and have taken to Twitter to express their sentiments.

Update courtesy of (and hat tip to) our very own Leslie:

Maybe it’s not a full half of Trump supporters who belong in that “basket of deplorables,” after all.

CNN reports:

Hillary Clinton expressed “regret” Saturday for comments in which she said “half” of Donald Trump’s supporters are “deplorables,” meaning people who are racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic.

“Last night I was ‘grossly generalistic,’ and that’s never a good idea. I regret saying ‘half’ — that was wrong,” Clinton said in a statement in which she also vowed to call out “bigotry” in Trump’s campaign.

File under the usual “sorry, not sorry” Clinton family “apologies.”

hillary has stepped in it now! Just like Romney did with his stupid 47% comment. The woman is filled with hate and an elitist personality that we can only imagine what she would do to our daily lives if elected! She knows what is is good for us and by God we are going to have to conform or else.

    Without attempting to infer Romney’s motives, it must be noted that smoothing functions (e.g. welfare) are only sustainable in the short-term, and are first-order causes of progressive corruption over the long-term. The resolution of circumstantial disparity is not creation of a welfare state, but rather economic revitalization that is inclusive.

    Media put an emphasis on the “47%” part of Romney’s comment. With Hillary’s it will be on the “basket of deplorables”, not “half”. The “basket” does exist, threaten me personally and Trump is yet to own up to it. Actually, he is actively promoting them, and in his opinion, I think, all ordinary white people secretly admire neoNazis.
    For more on the basket of deplorables see, for instance, the recent Betsy Woodruff column:
    She’s been covering AltRight for a while.

      Edge, the kook for shrillary.

      There is a picture of your basket posted up.

      Nice crowd you nevertrumpers run around with.

        Here’s an idea: instead of attacking someone and name-calling, why not address their point? If you don’t wish to, as one can only think since you didn’t, why not skip the ad hominem?

        It’s pretty hard to take your and your fellow Trumpsters’ complaints about personal attacks, vitriol, and etc. seriously when you apparently see a name you don’t like and post vapid attacks on that person (not their point).

        And yes, this is good advice to all.

        /just saying

          After being verbally attacked by you repeatedly, and being called names by you repeatedly, and noticing you run to the defense of any kook that is a nevertrumper, including this one that is a declared Hillary supporter, I simply pay no attention to you.

          /just Sayin

          When have I called you names or even one name once? Seriously, provide the link because if I did so, I owe you an apology.

          I don’t support Trump, but a lot of people near and dear to me do. The more this “right side” rancor carries on, the more I distrust Trump. Anyone who inspires that kind of blind devotion is always worrisome, of course, but this seems different. At least Obots were hyping their godlet and singing the wonders of his wonder. Not Trumpsters, though, they don’t really have anything good to say about Trump . . .it’s just “he’s better than Hillary” or “if you’re not for Trump, you’re a traitor” and variations thereon. Sad, really.

          Barry, when did Fuzzy verbally attacked anyone? All she does is argue points.

          scooterjay in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 10, 2016 at 4:41 pm

          The fact that you, as a host, feel the need to rebut anyone that thinks counter to you, tells me everything I need to know. Put on a sweater, you will catch a cold with that thin skin, dear.

          That’s adorable. I don’t think I’ve even noticed your comments, scooterjay, yet it appears you think “counter to” me. I’ll have to keep that in mind and “rebut” you in future. 😉

          Ragspierre in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 10, 2016 at 5:06 pm

          I’ve looked for and never found your similar comment when Leslie…or the Prof…and I have exchanged comments.


          UK Transplant in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 10, 2016 at 5:30 pm

          Fuzzy, you call Donald Trumps supporters “Trumpsters” as you complain about someone else name calling? And please don’t respond that it’s just a neutral way to refer to the group. I’m offended every time I read this term along with all the other variations I see on this blog and others, i.e. Trumpkins, etc.

          Sure, “Trumpsters,’ “Trump fans,” etc. I call myself a #NeverTrumper.

          It is neutral, whether you wish to hear it or not.

          Ragspierre in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 10, 2016 at 5:37 pm

          So, you’re like the delicate snowflake that took umbrage because my (and others here) opposition to T-rump was “passive-aggressive”…???

          Dearie, grow a hide…

          Rags, I read these comments, and I just shake my head. I can’t remember who used the term “Trumpster,” but I think I saw it here, and it was just quicker and easier to type than “Trump fans” or “Trump supporters” and seemed more neutral than “Trumpkins” or “TrumpBots.” Funny how hard it is to gauge what someone else might find offensive. We’ve been called everything from traitors to our country, to “kooks,” “Hillary shills,” “trolls,” and goodness knows what else. I don’t recall any of us getting the vapors and fainting away with the horror of it all.

          Ragspierre in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 10, 2016 at 6:16 pm

          I’m pretty salty, as we all know. But I’d say anything I’ve said here to anyone’s face and defend it.

          OTOH, if someone called me a “traitor” in my presence, I’d beat the dog shit out of them. Or die of the heart attack… Maybe both.

          It’s the way the interwebs work, and the very low character of some of the T-rump suckers who PRETEND to be what they never were. That’s NOT an indictment of people who would vote for Der Donald. It certainly IS an indictment of moles who post here pretending some conservative chops, but are, in fact, alt-righters or T-rumpian cultists. And they certainly ARE here.

          I know they’re here, Rags, but they reveal themselves and sway no one. I get this on Twitter all the time, and as soon as I disengage and show that nothing, no matter how outrageous, will drag me into the fray, they head off for more volatile and greener pastures.

          Heck, I even get a chuckle out of them sometimes because they are so desperate to provoke a verbal attack while still cowering under the victim mantle that they reveal who and what they are in stark and clear detail. I typically ignore it (unless I don’t. Heh.).

          I guess my point is that we do see what you see, and this absolutely includes long-time LI readers who have chosen to sit out the current troll infestation. The goal is to be here long after they’re gone . . . and they will go. This is not a Trumpster site and won’t be, and they know this. They just hang out because they can get a rise out of us. No rise, and off they go to more combative pastures. I can live with that.

          Fuzzy, I don’t think some comments even needs to be addressed.

      Hey edge –
      these are the basket cases.

      Judging from the last rant I’ll go with my <5'8" theory.

      You are quoting BETSY WOODRUFF? Cripes….splinters under your fingertips from scraping the bottom of the barrel, no doubt.

I notice Hillary has a new hairdo that covers her ears. I’m betting she will keep doing this through the debates. Think about it.

    Observer in reply to melanerpes. | September 10, 2016 at 11:34 am

    Yes, and I hope Trump shows up at the debates with some type of signal-jammer built into his pen or his tie clip, so that he can block Cheryl Mills or whatever Clinton flunky is whispering answers in Hillary’s earpiece.

      DieJustAsHappy in reply to Observer. | September 10, 2016 at 11:50 am

      Or, signal hacker whereby Team Trump provides responses of their own. I can well envision the pained expressions on her face as she realizes what she anticipated in assistance wasn’t forthcoming.

      No something that causes her hearing aid to squeal and zone her out.

      tom swift in reply to Observer. | September 10, 2016 at 12:39 pm

      Don’t jam it.

      Detect it, record it, and post it, ideally in real time.

      Then sit back and watch the fireworks.

      amwick in reply to Observer. | September 10, 2016 at 4:23 pm

      I have recently learned that the sale and use of signal jammers is prohibited by the fcc. So, my thought was to broadcast all kinds of noise, every frequency, to confuse things.

        2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to amwick. | September 10, 2016 at 5:22 pm

        Which would make it all the more interesting to do it…. can’t you just see the screams to make them stop interfering with her cheating.

        RodFC in reply to amwick. | September 10, 2016 at 9:49 pm

        People were using them to jam cell phone signals on public transportation, restaurants etc…

        I haven’t researched it, but I suspect they are easy to build. You can probably find plans online. You just need to be able to read schematics and solder halfway decently.

      Ragspierre in reply to Observer. | September 10, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      That’s kind of the definition of “jamming”.

      There no way I know of to remove a signal, so classically you “jam” the frequency with trash, preferably with a stronger signal. There are some really sophisticated devices that do find a frequency and produce a counter-signal, but those are military and it takes some time. IIRC. But even the counter-signal is still a signal.

      “Can’t stop the signal, Mal. Everything goes somewhere, and I go everywhere.”

    That will be her excuse for the comment: “Sorry – it just came over my earpiece.”

I guess I belong in that basket. Not because I am “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it,” but because Hillary and the Left label me as such.

It is quite simple: if you disagree with any part of the progressive agenda, they will not debate, they will simply label you. Since I disagree with all the progressive agenda, then all their labels apply to me. I think she left out “warmonger,” “transphobic” and the all encompassing “bigot.”

With this, Hillary has added to her “basket of deplorables of why she ought not be President of the United States of America.

Connivin Caniff | September 10, 2016 at 11:21 am

At least Romney had statistical evidence, and his comment was valid. Where is Hillary’s evidence? For once, Hillary is not lying, however – she and her elite supporters are delusional and actually believe her bizarre vision of America.

“Deplorables like White males, Christians, orthodox Jews and pro-lifers.”

Hers is clearly worse.

And revealing, of her underlying character.

Romney made a statement of verifiable fact. “There are 47% of the people who will vote for [Obama] no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax.”

The harridan gave an opinion of what she (and Democrats) thinks of us lessers.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | September 10, 2016 at 11:48 am

Well, that’s it. Prior to today, the only thing I knew for sure was that: 1) I would vote for somebody for President and 2) I would not vote for Hillary. I was almost certain that I was going to write in Ted Cruz.

But Hillary has convinced me to vote for Trump.

Trump is a scary, unpredictable loose canon. I don’t have a clue what he really believes or wants because he’s been on every side of every issue.

But at least Trump doesn’t hate me.

I am sick of the Democrats smug moral superiority; their divisive identity politics; and the whole “white privilege” crap. The fake reality of calling men who want to play dress up women. The idiocy of pretending you can choose your race. I’m fed up with it all. As much as I distrust Trump – and I really distrust Trump a lot – I am sick of Democrats. I don’t want them in power. My conscious wants to write in Cruz but if I want to be practical about it the only way to prevent the hideous Democrats from continuing to rule is to vote Trump.

Well done, Hillary. You created a new Trump voter.

    Vote your conscience. Nothing whatsoever wrong in that.

      “Vote your conscience”

      In Ragspeak, this is code for “do not oppose the true collectivist that despises you”, nothing more.

      It is the last resort of a group that lost, and has exhorted us to vote for every loser the GOPe has pushed on us in the past. They voted for Romney, Dole, McCain, Bush. They exhorted us to vote the same. Some conscience.

        Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | September 10, 2016 at 1:28 pm

        Instead ANOTHER straw man and set of lies, try dealing with what I’ve actually said.

        My position is to oppose BOTH Collectivists who despise you, and lie to you, and are gross, disgusting frauds.

        BOTH of whom are deeply pathological personalities who HATE the Constitution and conservatism.

        THAT’S what I’ve said for over a year, in plain English and without the least apology.

    “I don’t have a clue what he really believes or wants because he’s been on every side of every issue.”

    Actually, he hasn’t. On the core issues he has been remarkably consistent going back decades.

    What he has done, as a non-politician, is made statements that can misconstrued.

    Since you have decided to test the waters so to speak, spend a few moments researching his past. You’ll feel better.

      Well, Trump has indeed been consistent on a number of issues over the decades. This includes his strong belief that freedom of the press and the free speech of the people need to be impinged, that he admires dictators and tyrants for their ability to “manage” the people, that he thinks Hillary is a wonderful person who would be a great president . . . oh, wait, not that one, that Romney’s touchback amnesty was mean-spirited, that the federal government should run everything (education, health care, the economy, the world, essentially), that late term abortion is wunnerful–oh, wait, not that. But yes, you are correct: he is consistent in many of his core beliefs.

      Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | September 10, 2016 at 3:02 pm

      If I recall that piece correctly, it leaves out that Mr. Establishment was funding five of the Gang of Eight when Cruz was killing their effort.

      Just FYI…

        The only thing Ted killed was his own future in Presidential politics.

        The Gang of Eight passed Teds Senate and only died when Cantors career in the House died.

        You know this, but you keep denying it.

This wasn’t a gaffe, it was a calculated risk. The democrats are playing the shifting-demographic card and ditching white America. First Bubba’s “Coal Country” cracks, now this. They figure that a majority of women, minorities and feminized men will be enough to get them over. The rest of us are Soylent Green.

A basket would make a nice campaign logo.

Does a winning campaign attack the opponents “basket” of supporters? Oh, I meant does a Whinung campaign attack the opponents….

Dollar Bill Clinton knows that “coal country” is a much smaller voting population than Green Wienies in the left and right coasts. They are playing to their base.

As to her larger comment, we’ll see if it was a gaff or a calculated message to her audience of “New York values” people, to whom it was addressed.

She can always put out a completely contradictory message for fly-over country. It’s what she does.

The consequences of anti-native policies of Obama and Clinton throughout Eurasia speak truth to power over her narratives. The reestablishment of class diversity to discriminate between individuals by “skin color” is evidence of not only a sincerely held prejudice but the raging bigotry (i.e. sanctimonious hypocrisy) of class diversitists. As for the transgender spectrum disorder, why so selective (“=”)?

We are on a progressive slope. Choose life, not abortion.

All leftists/totalitarians have contempt for the voters. Hillary is just expressing it verbally. Other leftists express their hate by disenfranchising legitimate voters by stopping voter ID laws.

Leftists only “love” abstract groups of people where they can manipulate and control and broker power. They hate free individuals who cannot be controlled.

Hillary speaks from her heart when she expresses contempt. Remember how vicious she was when quashing the “bimbo eruptions?” Her words of hate apply to Hillary herself. Evil has a way of doing that.

I think the basket will define the election. It’s the Dukakis/tank moment.

She can try to walk it back, but people now know what she really thinks of the working class.

    Ragspierre in reply to Petrushka. | September 10, 2016 at 12:23 pm

    “But the other basket — and I know this because I see friends from all over America here … but that other basket are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures — they’re just desperate for change. … Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well.”

    That’s the other part of her quote you are not hearing about.

    I think it will prove a lot less harmful than Barracula’s “bitterly clinging” statement…and he won.

      Petrushka in reply to Ragspierre. | September 10, 2016 at 12:40 pm

      She can try to walk it back, but Le Deplorables know what she thinks of them.

      Observer in reply to Ragspierre. | September 10, 2016 at 1:42 pm

      “IOW, the other basket are people who have been screwed over by the Obama administration’s open-borders, big-government, crony-capitalism policies of the past eight years — policies that I enthusiastically endorsed as a cabinet member in his administration, and policies that I have promised to not only continue, but to make even worse for those who are already suffering!”

      “So vote for me, bitter clingers. Your life will still suck, but at least you can tell your Facebook friends that you’re not a deplorable racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamophobe, or whatever!”

      Ragspierre……are you a resident of Asheville, NC?

Agree with other posters who recognize HRC’s remark as a play on shifting demographics. I would summarize her rant as simply anti-white.

Non housebroken whites, and those who don’t belong to the Davoisi are now the Class Enemy.

legacyrepublican | September 10, 2016 at 12:31 pm

Proof positive that Hillary is a basket case!

She forgot to mention the re-education camps she has in mind for us.

A disgusting, corrupt fascist, finally on full-view for the world to see.

Says the woman who is fully supported by felons, ACTUAL racists, fascists, radicals, jihadists, perverts, pedophiles, mentally challenged, morons, America haters, those with LESS than a high school edumacation, and the recently deceased.

Get one for the polls.

    Ah, the wonders of capitalism. Able to provide consumer products at a moment’s notice, without any central planning or government official approving of the product.

I predict that Clinton’s “Basked of Deplorabes” will be enshrined along the Dukakis tank photo and GHW Bush watch glance as painful campaign turning point.

Hard to tell on mobile version who is replying to whom, but that dailybeast link was a weak proof. There are crazy people everywhere and Democrats love to use that as “proof”. Come one, lets not stoop to that anecdotal silliness.

Someone must have told her to loosen up and show us what’s in her heart.

Another thing I’ll note for objectivity’s sake is that those of us who DO NOT support T-rump are pretty much…or especially…in the Les Deplorables basket.

I sure as hell would be, according to the Hellary supporters.

When you have no argument, you are left with name-calling.

    Ragspierre in reply to jwoodatty. | September 10, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    But evoking categories is an important part of polemics, and a way to make a universally understood abbreviated argument.

    We all do it, and mostly because it has so much utility in communication. Look up and down this thread, and you’ll see it’s been used by many…if not most…of the posters here.

    If you do any trial work, you know this is true.

Ever the hypocrite she is. Remember this from BHO:
Referring to small-town Pennsylvanians, he said, “”And, it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Okay, you might recall this. However, do you also recall this:
“Pennsylvanians don’t need a President who looks down on them. They need a President who stands up for them, who fights for them, who works hard for your futures, your jobs, your families.”

Why, we didn’t know you cared so deeply, Hillary Clinton

I made a comment similar to this awhile ago. What we need to do is not dispute her, not confront her, but to get her off guard. Pence and Trump shou ASK what I lay out below.

What professional politicians miss is the greatest opportunity to shut people down like this. THey just don’t know how.

Take it from somebody who has been selling for longer than most of you have been alive. There really are a couple of magic phrases, or more correctly, magic questions.

“How do you know that what you are saying is true?”
“Can you tell me where you learned that?”

Statements let the other party win, ALWAYS. A question always puts the asker at the advantage.

It is an art, but the sooner the republicans learn this, the sooner they will win.

I’ve noticed, once again, that the emails for this article have become of the You’re-a-Toad … No, I’m not! You’re a Toad variety. I get nothing out of this. And, after a time it gets tedious. I would hope that those who wish to engage in this would trade emails and go at it until their hearts content.

Being a comparative new one here, I’m sure this may not go down well. Nevertheless, it’s a shame that this seems to happening so frequently on an otherwise good site, as well as those who participate do have some fine posts at times.

I’m deleting out on this article.

    Pretty much. Like going to post onto a blog and ending up talking to with Norman Bates or his mother. Just drive through the park and enjoy the animals. Feeding time is usually morning.

Well this might turn out to be quite a coup for Grandma. She’ll now get whatever small holdout Tedophile vote that lingered out there undecided. Its a short leg of the triangle from one creep to another.

Hellary now “regrets”.

Which gives her the opportunity to mollify some of her critics and repeat what she said.

She’s evil, but not stupid.

    Petrushka in reply to Ragspierre. | September 10, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    Just at the point where some serious pollsters say Trump is even with Hillary in North Carolina, Ohio and Florida, Hillary goes after the rural and blue collar class.

    Will she pay a respectful visit to Castro to cement Florida?

      Ragspierre in reply to Petrushka. | September 10, 2016 at 8:56 pm

      “Serious pollsters…”???

      What are the others…stand up pollsters? Geeeze.

      Polls are skewed…unless you like their results. Then they become “serious”.

Amazon already has deplorable and proud tee shirts.

Hedlary Lamarr Clinton chooses her White House staff…

“I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists. Muzlims”

“they think somehow he’s going to restore an America that no longer exists.”
So dems have managed to ruin the country?
hateful hitlery must be proud.

Remember Romney’s 47% comment? Less extreme than Hillary’s comments, and to a smaller part of the populace (47%<50%).

Don't see the same MSM reaction…I wonder why?

    Ragspierre in reply to openeyes. | September 11, 2016 at 10:21 am

    Let’s be objective here, shall we?

    Hellary said “half” of T-rump supporters were “deplorables”.

    That would be something less than a quarter of voters.

    As I mentioned earlier, I…NOT a T-rump supporter…am squarely in the “deplorables” ambit, as well.

    Conversely, do conservatives consider many in our opposition “deplorable”. I sure as hell do!

    Are there “irredeemable” people in opposition to us? Again, HELL yeah. We consider them and their depravity here all the time.

    Finally, do you delusionally expect the Mushroom Media to deal with anything “fairly”? On what possible basis?

      openeyes in reply to Ragspierre. | September 11, 2016 at 11:11 am

      OK, I accept your correction vis-à-vis 47%X<50%Y as different populations are concerned.
      The rest stands…as sarcasm!

      Sorry, not much sleep last night….

    Absent the realization of a delusional “land-slide” for one or the other…

    whoever wins will have an “electorate” that is roughly half of all voters, with roughly half being their opposition.

    Again, look at all this objectively, Hellary has managed the following…

    1. she’s been in control of the “news cycle” for a few days

    2. there’s tape of her going all T-rump in a friendly forum which responds warmly

    3. there’s tape of her speaking without a Teleprompter (as near as I can tell), and doing it effectively in that venue

    4. she’s taken the chance to “regret”, which gives her the opportunity to repeat what her main points were

    5. she has the right media running around with its hair on fire, instead of talking about her health, email corruption, the Clinton crime sindicate (spelling intentional), etc.

      Funny how your post reeks of the assumptive that only Trump or Hillary can win despite your previous screams about the viability of an independent candidate.

        Funny how your post just reeks.

        I don’t “scream”, though you lie.

        You have me confused with some other poster. I’ve never been a fan of an independent run, third-party run, etc. I’ve watched them as political propositions, and may have defended on the basis of pushing back against you rabid T-rump suckers.

        In any case, as we roar up to the actual collision part of this train-wreak, the options winnow down.

        Don’t they, “screamer”?

        As an aside, I am coming to think the conservatives are going to have to separate from the GOP entirely, and form their own interest group. That could, in due time, become a “party”.
